This could mean one of 2 things. Your hard drive is damaged or your Windows installation is corrupt. Try reformatting it using the discs that came your computer. Just keep in mind you will lose all of the information on your hard drive. (They reset your computer back to factory settings)

Iomega LDHD-UP hard drive containing dj music and will not read device on any computer to retrieve music


Does the disk show up under "disk management" heres how your browse to disk management:
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Security link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage.

    After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window.
If you cant see it in disk management the hard drive has probably physically failed and would require data recovery.

My hard drive stop working and cant open it am no good on computer would like to talk to someone on the phone if it possible my number is 705-969-8679


If the disk-drive has "failed", then it must be replaced:
* turn the computer off
* disconnect the AC power
* remove the side-panel(s)
* remove the cables (data & power) that connect to the disk-drive
* remove the screws that hold the disk-drive in the frame
* remove the disk-drive
* take it to a computer-store
* show it to them, and they will sell you a compatible disk-drive
* reverse all the above "remove" steps to connect the new disk-drive
* turn the computer on
* insert the "System Restore" CD/DVD disk that came with your computer
* Windows will be installed onto the new disk-drive
* run Windows Update, several times, to get all the latest security-updates for Windows
* install free anti-virus software: http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

However, it's possible that your disk-drive is still working, and all your "data" files on the disk-drive can be "rescued", even through Windows is not starting-up completely & properly.
Take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting & repair.

One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

See if you cant get it to start up in safe mode and run a check disk.

If you cant get into safe mode, I hope you have a windows xp installation disk to run it from the CD: http://kb.wisc.edu/helpdesk/page.php?id=5097

Windows recovery disk with safe mode


Try this. While you are in Windows click on Start>programs>accessories>system tools then click on system restore. You will be asked to choose a date, choose a date before this started happening it should reset your computer to that date. In the meantime, yes, you need to get a copy of your operating system from www.microsoft.com so you can fix problems in the future.

Don't forget to rate this solution.
