"can not start. correct hard disk not found" screen message

System starts, music, wavy band and then screen message. I've removed and re-seated the hard drive but did not resolve the problem. Can the hard drive be re-formated if switched out in another 80 gig PS3?

Well you may have a bad connection at the SATA port. this happens alot cuz of the heat generated by the CELL CPU (adjacent to the SATA PORT) . either this or your harddrive has failed

Operating system not found


there is problem with your hard disk. your hard disk wire may be loose. try to remove and refix all sata wires of your hard disk. "operating system not found" message may be coming because you may have not installed any os (windows, linux or mac) in your notebook. try to install operating to system to fix this. there may also be proble with your hard disk, your hard disk may be dead. if your notebook is showing message "operating system not found" without any reason then you may have put your notebook in high magnetic field area. due to high magnetic field, sometimes hard disk's are formatted automatically.

Laptop won'y start up has non-system disk or disk error


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Ps3 slimline says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


Dear Friend,

Have you consider to replace your hard drive?. That might be a good possibility why your PS3 can not start the way it should. Try that and see what happens.

Good Luck!

Message on screen: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware... It then cuts to startup repair and attempting repairs. Have gone through this a dozen times only to end up where I started. What do I...


I assume you've already tried pressing F8 on startup to get into the start-up options screen (from there you can attempt "Restore System to a previous date.").
If you can't get anywhere with the F8 options, try starting up your system from a Windows Install disk. (Unfortunately, few computers come with this. Some have a Restore mode using either a special startup hot key or a set of optical disks, but this usually involves formatting C: and wiping out everything before setting it back to factory original state.) Once you have the Windows Install disk going, watch for the Automatic System Repair option to come up. This is different for each version of Windows, so I can't give you more than that other than to follow the on-screen instructions.
Note: virus infections can disrupt the hardware registry and produce the symptoms you have. By now, your backup registry is corrupted (that is why the automatic repair fails). I've found the easiest virus fix for a desktop computer is to remove the hard drive and install it as a second drive in a known-good computer, then have that system scan the problem drive for virus infections and file system corruption. If you have a 2.5" - 3.5" drive adapter and can remove the drive easily, you can also use this tactic on laptop hard drives. You will probably still need to repair the operating system damage.

My HP 4710s had a weird message that pops up after the logo screen. Then it says non disk or disk error strike any key to continue...I do that and the same message pops up...plz help.


the HP cannot boot up because it cannot find the hard disk to boot up from.
You could have a faulty hard drive or the hard drive needs re-seating.
If the HP still does not boot up after re-seating the hard drive go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard disk is detected. If not the most likely the hard disk is faulty.
To get the laptop working again. replace the hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk plus the HP Laptop's device drivers and your programs.

Laptop boots up and says operating system not found


This error message occurs when the laptop/computer boots up and cannot find a hard disk and/or operating system.
This could be a faulty hard disk or disk controller.
First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to 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.
Next - to determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files, this confirms the hard drive is faulty.
The hard drive needs to be replaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device drivers and your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

Computer problem, help.


This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.
