Hdd block error

Hi!
I have a problem with my new desktop (9 month old). Every new start after night rest it offers safe mode and does not load if I say him load an ordinal way. Well, I go then to safe mode and a couple of minutes latter (looking through system messages (Control panel/Administration...)) I make soft shut down. Most often, the next start is OK. It repeats from first day. I tried to reinstall Windows a couple of times, it does not help. There was a period (Summer) when it has been started with no problem, but not too long.
Last month I notice a new warning saying that HDD has block errors. Now I'm testing my HDD and can see 73 error blocks (10 per cents scanned yet  by Victoria HDD test program).
What you say on that?
Is it fixable or you'd advise me to change HDD or something else?
I have Windows XP SP2 updated and Samsung HD200HJ hard disk.

Thank you,
Ali Tkhagapsov,
Ukraine

Yes, better replace the hard drive. because even if you try and run a repair and work it will fail in the future. to keep your data safe i suggest that you replace your HDD now.

Error loading operating system


try pressing F8 at bootup, when the SAFE MODE window comes up, select boot in Safe mode desktop. When at next window, you are asked if you wish to go to desktop, or perform a System restore, choose system restore, when the next window comes up, like a calender, simply choose a time prior to the problem, follow instructions, and it will go through and reboot. This should get you back.

Laptop keeps restarting


  1. See if you can start in Safe Mode (hit F8 before Windows loads - best way is to keep tapping F8 after you power it on. You should get a menu with "start in Safe Mode" as an option.
  2. Once booted in safe mode go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, ;Startup and recovery'.
  3. Click the Settings button and remove the tick from the "Automatically Restart" box.
  4. Click all the OK's to get back to Control Panel.
  5. Reboot as normal and the system should display an error code. Post that error code here and we can have a look at it.

Clone desktop computer would not start up


If you mean running a hard drive scan such as CHKDSK (check disk) then you may have a failing hard drive. Try taking the computer into safe mode. (repeatedly press the F8 key after switching the computer on, then doing a three count--must be dont before the windows logo appears; choose safe mode or safe mode with networking). If the computer loads up normally in safe mode, then you have a software or harware conflict. If not, look at the hard drive.

Hi there

I think it may be a graphics problem. May be the XP drivers are not compatible with your machine graphics card.
You could try this to solve it ...

From the web, possibly on another PC that's got the internet, download the graphics driver for your machine and save it to a USB disk.

Once the set up is complete, try booting into safe mode (press F8 on boot, then select boot into Safe Mode)

Now try running the driver from the USB disk (or copy it to C: drive first then run it).

Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.

HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II
OS XP or Vista

After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
