First - re-seat the hard
disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and
go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it
doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs
to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or
laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning
Open Disk Defragmenter by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking Disk Defragmenter. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click Defragment Now.
Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process
Scan your computer with an updated Antivirus. Use Microsoft Process Explorer to stop unwanted programs. Use a system utility tool like ReginOut to fix corrupt registry & windows files. It will also remove unwanted junk files from computer. Hope it works for you.
This normaly happens due to a failing Hard disk. By this i mean the booting files, responsible for normal start up of your computer have been modified or deleted. Or it can also be a result of a dropped hard disk. For you to fix this, boot your computer using Error Rescue Disk(ERD). You can get it from the Microsoft website. Its an image, burn it to a cd and boot the computer with that cd. When your computer is booted up, go to start, then Administrative Tools, then Explorer. Make a back up by copying your data to a removable media.(external Hard drive or flash drive). Then go to Erase Disk/ Disk wipe. This will let you clean up your hard drive. Restart your computer with an Operating system disk in it and boot from it to install a new operating system. NOTE: Make sure you download ERD commander 2007 if you are using Xp, and ERD Commander 2010 if you are using Vista or Windows 7
It is clear your hard disk has developed errors.
Let the disk check run completely. If is stops in the middle, that shows their is a major problem with your hard disk.
If you cancel the disk checking, the computer hangs because some of the system files are already damaged due to the hard disk error.
One thing you can do is to backup everything and format the hard disk and reinstall the operating system and the software.
If the hard disk error is propagating type (i.e. the amount damaged keeps increasing), you will have to reinstall the OS every 2 to 4 weeks.
In this case it is better to replace your hard disk.
The problem maybe caused by a part of the old OS still on the hard drive you would need to completely wipe out the hard drive and to do this u would need to get a kill disk which wipes thhe hard drive clean of all files that may still be on the computer to make it hang
Operating system disk - Try to test your Installation CD to other computer. If it doesn't work then you need to replace the disk
Optical Drive (CD/DVD Drive) - If Installation disk works then try to clean your Optical drive lens as it may be having a hard time reading the disk. Your Optical drive is working since you're able to format and able to start the installation. Cleaning the drive lens may do the trick.
Hard Drive - If Installation CD and Optical drive is clean. Then the last thing you need is to replace the Hard Drive. You Hard Drive might need replacement due to some bad sectors and the installation couldn't write anything on the drive that causes to freeze during installation.
The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.
Hi, If you REALLY need to FORMAT your Hard Drive, that is...SCOUR out ALL THE DATA on it, then get a CD disk with Win 98 FDISK on it. It can be downloaded by a friend who can BURN it for you. Go into STARTUP by hitting appropriate "F" key, (experiment here...), then tell the BIOS to start up in CD drive..
Save setting, restart, at the C:>: prompt, type "FORMAT C:", & telll it to go... Hang onto your hat, your Hard Drive is being SCOURED CLEAN & prepared for new data to be installed... Dugal
