I dont know how to set boot option?


Normally you want to boot from the CD/DvD drive 1st then the Hard Drive 2nd. This is the best way because if the hard drive ever goes bad you can put a operating system disc or repair disc into the drive and boot from it.

Just be careful that when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive otherwise you might get an error messages saying unbootable device.

My daughter dropped her laptop now it wont turn on and keeps saying theres a hard drive prpoblem


Well, either the hard drive inside has come loose from it connector, in which case opening the access door on the back and re-seating the connector will solve your problem, OR, the impact from the dropping has resulting in hard drive crash in which case you need a new hard drive.

When you boot up your computer, there are usually tips like "for set up bios press F2, for recovery push F10" and so on. You need to enter the BIOS and see if there is Hard drive recognized. If not, then you need new Hard drive. Good luck!

The hard drive crashed will not start


If the hard drive have crashed meaning that the hard drive itself is damaged, then your solution is to replace a new harddrive. If you do have a recovery disc already made, or one is provided then you will have to use that disc once the hard drive is replaced with the new one, and follow the procedure to reinstalled the operating system. If the original hard drive had crash and does no work anymore (where the bios/computer cannot detect it) and you have important data that you would like to retrive, there are places such as office depot, bestbuy, where they can help you send it to a recovery file center to recover files from your damaged hard drive. Do not attemp to fix or open a damaged harddrive, you can forever damage the files on the cyclinder disc. 2) Now if your harddrive crash in term as windows just crashing and you cannot get into your operating system and the bios is still able to detect the hard drive, and it's giving you a error message, then you will only need to reinstall, or do a windows recovery through your recovery disc, If you do not have a recovery or made the disc, then you will need to buy a new operating system software. If you computer does not start meaning no display on the screen at all, then please replay back. That is a different story.

Yes! the hard drive is the issue and must be replaced, go to www.sony.com for customer support and pricing. The second option is www.ebay.com type in laptop and click, type in your make model and click, next type hard drive and click, you will find the prices are cheaper. The final option is go to your computer repair store to see if you can buy one.

My laptop keeps sayin disk read error press ctrl alt delete


Usually you get this message when the hard drive has crashed or there's a disc inside the cd / dvd rom.

Check your bios settings to make sure your computer boots to the hard drive itself.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask ;)

GETTING A "[DOIT.BAT] MD3PATCH - ERROR SETTING UP THE MD3 POWER BUTTON" MESSAGE WHEN TRYING TO FORMAT MY NEW HARD DRIVE AND REINSTALL WINDOWS


1. In first place the MD 3.0 cd must be used before you install any OS. It allows you to partition the HD by assigning a size for de C: (operating system partition). The rest of the HD is automatically assigned for the partition D: and for the space required for MD3.

2. At this point the MD is not yet installed. You are request to install your OP with you OP install cd. After you install the OP you are ready for really installing the MD3.

THE SOLUTION:

I found a BIOS update at:

http://support.dell.com/support/down...id=-1&impid=-1


I ran this update from Windows.

After that I restart my computer from the MD3 cd. It will format your HD and you will follow the steps to reinstall.
