Hi rmirish,

The hard drive has built in SMART diagnostics to check itself to make sure all is well. If the SMART is showing status BAD then the hard drive is either either starting to go out. Your best bet is to try to backup any data (if you have any) on the hard drive and replace the hard drive.

Hope that helps,

Take care,

Michael

Loveno S10-2 - No bootable device found


Make sure your hard drive has higher priority in the boot options in BIOS. If it still doesn't boot then you will need to replace your hard drive. If it shows no hard drive in BIOS then the drive is most certainly bad and needs to be replaced.

Corrupt missing C:\windows\system32\config\system no original windows xp oem disk cannot use recovery console cannot get to a c:/ prompt no floppies have cd rom bios does not support usb boot possiblity...


Your master boot record of the hard disk is damaged. I suppose you have access to CDROM through bios. But it is not clear from your question. Set CDROM as first boot device. Get a bootable CD & make sure that it contains fdisk utility. Boot from it & you will get a:\ prompt. at a:\prompt type fdisk/mbr & press enter. Your master boot record of hard disk will replace. Now you will be able to go to c:\ prompt. Use your your xp cd to recover your windows.

My system crashed. Won't reinstall windows


Do you need anything that is stored on the crashed hard drive? If so, you need to get an adapter for the drive and connect it to a desktop pc as the 'd:' disk. then copy any files you can access that you need saved.
Re-install the drive into the laptop, use "FDISK /MBR" from a floppy drive or a USB drive set up as a boot disk to re-partition it, and install the master boot record, and then boot the CDrom to install your operating system afresh.
The error message you are getting is caused by the 'restore' program trying to use the C: disk programs, and they are not there. I think you may have a bad hard drive, as usually the programs will be found.
You need to find out if the disk is really really bad or just needs to be re-formatted. Follow the above steps to determine if you need a new drive or not.

It is sayingpri master disk s.m.a.r.t.status bad back up and replace . and wen i try to boot it is saying fileootcd status;oxc000000f.info an error occuredwhile attemting to read the boot configuration...


This error is indicating a physical problem with your hard disk drive or occasionally with the hard disk drive controller.
The S.M.A.R.T. status error means that there is a physical problem - not a windows installation problem.
The second error you are getting during start-up is secondary the the hard drive problems. The system cannot read some of the information on the hard drive. The area is cannot read contains necessary operating system information.
You need a new hard drive for this computer. If it is still under warranty then call or email Gateway support so that they can send a replacement drive. If not then you will need to purchase a new drive. If a new drive does not solve then problem then the problem is on the motherboard.
You did not specify which model laptop this is. Most of Gateway's laptops have built-in cdrom drives, but a few do not. The systems that do not will accept an external cd-rom drive, and should have been shipped with an external cd-rom drive so that it can be reloaded. You will need a cdrom drive to load your operating system onto your new hard disk drive once you replace it.

How do i get rid of the KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR on my d600? Occasionally it says UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME instead. Help?


This issue can occur if a requested page of kernel data could not be read from the paging file into memory, or the master boot record is infected with a virus. To further determine the possible cause, you must properly interpret the error message. If both the first and third parameters are zero, then the four parameters are defined as:
  1. 0 (zero)
  2. Page Table Entry (PTE) value at time of error
  3. 0 (zero)
  4. Address of signature on kernel stack
If either the first or the third parameter is not a zero, then the following definitions apply:
  1. Status code
  2. I/O status code
  3. Page file number
  4. Offset into page file
If this is the case, the cause of this issue may be determined from the second parameter (the I/O status code) by using the following information that is listed in a "value of second parameter" followed by "general cause" format:

0xC000000E, or STATUS_NO_SUCH_DEVICE: the drive went unavailable, possibly a bad hard drive, disk array, and/or controller card.

0xC000009A, or STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES: lack of nonpaged pool resources.

0xC000009C, or STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR: bad blocks on the hard disk.

0xC000009D, or STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED: bad cabling, non-termination, or the controller is not able to obtain access to the hard disk.

0xC000016A, or STATUS_DISK_OPERATION_FAILED: bad blocks on the hard disk.

0xC0000185, or STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR: improper termination or defective cabling of SCSI-based devices, or two devices attempting to use the same IRQ.








To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method:
Boot sector virus loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To determine if you have a boot sector virus, run a current virus-checking program, and if needed, disinfect your computer.
Not a boot sector virus loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); View the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that help you determine the device that is causing the error.

Bad block. Stop 0x77 is caused by a bad block in a paging file, or a disk controller error, or in extremely rare cases it is caused when non-paged pool resources are unavailable.

If the first and second parameters are 0, then the stack signature was not found in the kernel stack. The cause of this issue is defective hardware. If the I/O status is C0000185 and the paging file is on a SCSI-based hard disk, you should verify the disk cabling and SCSI termination.

If the I/O status code is 0xC000009C or 0xC000016A, this normally indicates that the data could not be read from the disk due to a bad block.

If you can restart your computer after the error message, Autochk runs automatically and tries to map out the bad sector. If for some reason Autochk does not scan the hard disk for errors, manually start the disk scanner. If your computer is formatted with the NTFS file system, run Chkdsk /f /r on the system partition. You must restart your computer before the disk scan begins. If you cannot start your computer due to this issue, use the Command Console and run Chkdsk /r.

Defective or unreliable random access memory (RAM) is another common cause of this issue.

Verify that all the adapter cards in your computer are properly seated.

Ensure that all adapter card contacts are clean.

Disable system caching in the BIOS to see if this resolves the error.

If this does not resolve the issue, your computer mainboard may be damaged.

Operating system not found


get a win 98 boot disk. get to the bios and enable floppy drive or usb floppy boot first. insert disk and turn on the computer you should get a menu screen select start with out cdrom support when you get a command prompt type FDISK MBR. this will repair your master boot record remove disk and reboot. or the hard drive is not plugged in or you may need to reinstall the OS again. if you reinstall the OS be sur to get the info off of your drive before you do it. it will erase existing info and make it really hard to recove that data.

Boot problem - Win98SE


change the boot sequence in bios set up ...
keep in this order
first boot device as floppy
2.hard disk
3.cdrom

then save it and then have a check it should work ..
you have not mention hard disk here so i think the hard disk is not detected there may be some loose contact inside and it is not connected properly so it is not able to verify DMI pool ...
if so connect the hard disk properly then then have a check it will surely work..........
