Hard disk failure..

My samsung hard disk can still be detected by the bios on POST and by the windows but it wont show or it does'nt appear when I open a windows explorer. I tried using a partitioning program,it shows the hard disk is not yet partitioned so I try to partitioned it but to no avail, it cannot be partitioned by that program. I tried also using the fdisk on DOS mode to repartitioned the hard disk but it gives me an error of "error reading fixed disk". I s this hard disk can still be fixed?

How to install windows it's showing there is no hard disk in the system pls help me


If the BIOS does not detect the hard disk, then reseat the hard disk and then check the BIOS again.
The hard disk maybe faulty, if so you need a replacement.
If the BIOS detects the hard disk and you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

1st boot should be your hard disk if your hard disk model is not shown in the selection then select HDD-0 as your first boot this will solve your problem

this solution only works if your hard **** is detected during POST if not detected check the power connector and SATA or IDE cable of your Hard Disk

Open your laptop and and fix the hard disk cable.After this start laptop and check the bios if HDD detected then select boot device and select first boot device is Hard disk.Save the setting and restart the window.You are able to open your window. But If Hard disk drive is not detected change data cable,power cable of Hard disk.If hard disk is detected in bios follow upper rules. And if it is not detected again you should walk into Hard disk repairing center and check hard disk there.

Smart failure hard disk 4 :wd1600bevt-222ct0-(si)


The error S.M.A.R.T. refers to Hard Drive hard drive that has detected damage to the disk and failure of the drive is imminent.

If the computer is booting to Windows after the SMART error, then back up all data on the disk immediately. The hard drive will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

Also, I suggest that you start the Computer to BIOS and check whether the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS.

If the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS, then try to perform reinstalling Windows supplied in your computer once before getting the hard drive replaced.

Samsung sp0802n hdd, failure is imminent back up data and replace. wont let me, just goes back to the BIOS screen.


The disk is about to fail and Windows is corrupted. Boot from a Linux Live-CD and copy all your data to an external hard disk. Then replace the hard disk with a new one and junk this one, reinstall Windows and copy all your files from the external hard disk in the new internal one.

Harddisk not detected in disk management but recognized in bios


Does it show in the devices? If it is, check and see if it is disabled. If not, check the jumper settings on both drives, and check your bios settings.

Hard disk problem


Better to check if your Hard Disk have a power. By knowing that it is working you have to go BIOS and see it there that it is recognize as Primary or Secondary Setup. Boot Failure have the options why it won't run from the hard drive. #1 Maybe its not detected in your PC or no power, check again inside your CPU if it is properly connect. #2 No windows or any system available. #3 If all of this are not then your Hard Drive are defective.
That's is my analysis on your problem. Hope this might help you to know what is that problem for.
Good luck!
