What? not necessarily hard drive, and if it isnt you can still get the data off it. ebay do a 2.5" hard drive to usb adapter that you can plug into any pc and access your lappie hdd.

Recently, my laptop will not boot from the hard drive.

The Hard drive installed in an USB hard drive case do not need drivers when you connect it to the USB port of a working computer. If the hard drive is not faulty then the computer will see this external hard drive as an external (mass) storage device and you can dopy/download the data off this hard drive.
If the computer does not detect this hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
There are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

No operating system found error on Gateway laptop 4540. I cannot get passed this screen Bios are set as follows: Boot Menu: Hard Drive, CD-Rom, Network Boot and Removable Devices.I have The restore DVD...

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

If it's a desktop then to back up your files you would want to plug the hard drive on another computer and check if your hard drive will be detected.
If no hard drive is detected it means that your hard drive is bad and recovering the data would be difficult.
If it's a laptop you may have to use an enclosure so that you can plug the hard drive on a different computer.
That way you'll be able to back up your data and do the reinstall.
Hope this helps!

Dell inspiron 1525 can't boot up, keeps on saying hard drive cannot be found. What could be the problem. Tried safe mode and it did not work, tried installing the operating system again without luck,...

Hi there,
please check if you can remove and reinsert the hard drive from its's location. usually you would have to remove 3 or 4 screws on the bottom part of the laptop and slide the hard drive out. once it's out put it back in and make sure that it's tightly on its place.
If this does not work you may have to replace the hard drive because the message means that it cannot detect the hard drive and it might just have to be replaced.

The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key andrepeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen thenchoose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that shouldprompt the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work,the only way to doit is to boot into windows and run the Recovery program.

I have dropped my acer aspire one netbook and now the following message keeps being displayed upon reboot. Intel UNDI. PXE-2.1 (Build 082) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE...

By the sound of the message, your hard drive broke when you dropped it. You can open the hard drive door (should be on the bottom help in by a screw) and re-seat the connector to see if it just got loose. You will likely have to purchase a new hard drive and reinstall your operating system. If there is data you really need off the hard drive you can call a data recovery service to try and salvage what's left on the hard drive, but it will likely cost in the hundreds of dollars range.

Hope this helps, and thank you for using FixYa!

Hi there,

Usually this is the dead sure sign your hard drive has some serious problems. This does not mean all you data is lost, or that it's the end of the world. It does mean that you need a "cagey" (that means a real expert on overcoming blue screen problems) dude/babe in your camp or crew, or it means you need to, just for now, get a new hard drive and get your operating system reinstalled and get your work or art done on that new drive.

It means you need patience to find a good soul to put your old drive in an "enclosure" with hardware plugs and wires to match, and get your data off.

It means you need to stop trying to get to your hard drive now, step back, and get these other things done so that you don't damage it any more so you can get the most of your data off.

It means that life is both short and long, and that you get to learn to be "cool" about puter problems, and make great choices that eventually pay off.

Kind regards

Blue screen error!

yes it could be, the best way is to get a new hard drive and new installation using your recovery discs. take the old hard drive to a repair shop to recover data or buy a hard drive reader for laptops.

Gateway MX6927 Windows Xp won't boot

put your xp disk in the optical drive.Turn off computer. Turn computer back on as soon as you turn it on start tapping f 12 should go the boot menu giving you a choice of booting from cd or hard drive choose boot from cd.Be sure you choose repair rather than new installation or you could loose all your information stored on the hard drive,I personally would try safe mode first you can get to safe mode by tapping f 6 when you first turn on your computer.

I turn on my gateway notebook, get 3 beeps & a blank screen "HELP ME smart people"

You probably knocked something loose when you dropped it. Try re-seating your memory cards. 3 beeps is usually a memory issue.
