I have received an error disk failure tell me how to solve the problem

Do not use the disk any more than you have to. Backup all your data. Be prepared to loose everything on the disk at any moment.

It is possible to temporarily repair damaged disks data so it can be "cloned" onto a new disk. This basically creates a new disk exactly like the old with programs, settings, and your files the same as the old disk.

I would advise leaving this task to someone who has done it before, usually a local shop not a big box store.

I don't get paid for advice so if this answers your problem, I would appreciate 4 thumbs.

Thanks for using FixYa!

What you need to do is to format your hard drive. Go to "My computer" right click the hard drive.. then select format. Do not use the quick format procedure. This should solve your problem.

Have a nice day.

Dropped external hdd 2.0 320gb now doesn't work, is getting power.

Hard Disks are generally VERY fragile, especially the external drives simply because the read/write head inside is a very tiny substance. your case suggests that when it dropped, the read/write head might have got broken, and which might have to get a new one. BUT in a very rare case can do a funny and pretty nice trick, just get another one of the same type (Exactly the same type), then get A Very Good Engineer, and tell him to help you to transfer the read/write head to the former one, just for the purpose of retriving your datas...then return everything back to its normal place. HE HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL THOUGH!!!, so as not to damage the two hard disks!
(How I wish I could be there to fix it for you, cos I've done it A LOT
Hope this solves your problem.

Not enough disk space to copy

Scan the drive due to possibly virus managing your disk drive. Virus can easily access through USB hard drives. If not solve the problem, so its better to format.

I want to increase the storage capacity my Hard disk.


You can use SATA hard disk.

you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.

My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.

Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.

Your RAM is ok too.

Hope my info helps you.

Hi there

that depends
is the old disk a IDE disk?
do the new computer have a IDE port on the motherboard?
if so you can put it in your new computer. but you cant move your OS and use the same disk. you can use is as storage.
I quess that your new computer has sata right? and I think its a bad idea to move your maxtor disk to the new computer because it can slow your PC down.

Good luck
