Question about Hitachi Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I purchased a hitachi 5k750-500 for a Vostro 1720. When I put in my OS cd, it runs through the normal set up, when it says Windows is setting up, I get a blue screen. It basicly says that I have a virus or my Hard drive is not configured. I need to get it up and running as soon as possible. Does anyone have any ideas or did I get a bad drive. Thanks

Could be...but first,make sure you select full format and not quick format during setup.You can also try formatting using another machine by connecting the hard drive as a removable device.

Hope it helps.

How to replace fan ?


I would recommend searching the brand and model of your laptop. If you need to find the fan, search 'Brand Model # fan' on Google (or your preferred parts site. For example 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan'. If you need the physical replacement instructions, then add 'replacement' or 'disassembly', such as 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan replacement' or 'Dell Vostro 1720 disassembly'. (I used a sample laptop model for these instructions; replace 'Dell Vostro 1720' with your laptop model.)

This could be a virus.

That's an interesting problem. It sounds like it's applying new display settings, but I'm not sure why it would do so over and over again. I would suggest trying to start Windows in "Safe Mode". To do that, as the computer is booting, hold down the F8 key to get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. Maybe this will get you to a normal login screen. If so, you should try to change your display settings to the simplest possible and then reboot. I hope this helps.

Start the computer.
Select the "old" system, and then repeatedly press F8,
until you see the Windows Start-Up Menu (white text over a black background).
Choose Start In Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
At the command-prompt, enter 'FORMAT C:' to "wipe" 100% of the files from the disk-drive.
When it completes, turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and boot from those original "System Restore" CDs.
It will load Windows onto your now-empty disk-drive.

How to format DELL Vostro 1014 Laptop


If you wish to FORMAT your hard drive so you can re install the OS.
Put your Windows disc into the CD/DVD drive, boot the computer and press F2 (if that does not work try CTRL+ALT and enter) to enter the bios. Change the boot order to boot from the CD drive first.

Follow the onscreen instructions to Install the OS, you should get the option to delete the existing partitions and then to FORMAT.

First of all, since you have no OS, you will need to purchase a copy from the computer store. Put the disk in the drive and boot the computer. As it's booting up press F2 and set to boot from CD. The Windows install shield will put the Windows OS onto your hard disk and install all the drivers for all conected devices, including the web cam.

Installing Hitachi P7K500 Sata Hard Drive


Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.
