    S.M.A.R.T HARD DISK DRIVE ERROR PRESS F1 TO RESUME shows on screen.

    When i push F2 instead, i enter the bios. then push Esc...lapto reboots.

    The hard disk makes buzzing sounds now.

    I guess it's time for a new pc. I think I'll go with applenext time.

    I had the same problem and can add that in my case, the hard drive was fine, the laptop lost the ability to recognize any hard drive. All of my information was still there.



    Does anyone have advise on what component(s) can be changed on the motherboard to resolve access to the harddrive?

    is there a smart option in the setup? I have a similar problem..hardrive crashed..Screen shows..drive failer imminent.press F1 to continue..F1 leads to the screen which shows windows startup options (i.e. safe mode, safe mode with netwrk and normal) but selecting any option does nothing..and the computer shuts down..

    Any help will be appreciated!!

    ps. I tried running the OS cd for the recovery option..but I am not sure how to continue with that..bunch of commands..but nothing that seems to help with recovering any data?

For a temp fix enter setup ,disable s.m.a.r.t function then reboot , should be fine for awhile at least long enough to back up all you need ,till u replace the drive, or run it til it dies.could be a day or years.

Your Hard Disk Drive is crashing or has crashed. You need to buy a new hard disk drive, and then you will have to reinstall windows and start over.

I have a compaq m2105us and when i start it all i get is two beeps and a resume f1 and start f2


try to press f1 and resume set-up ..and make the changes for teh date and time ..and save all settings with F10 and restart ..it should work ..and load windows if it has one ..The fact that it let you go in bios is good news..it means it is not damaged but if it asks all he time f 1 to resume ..it means the hard disk may have bads on it in system check ..and this is causing the f1 call ... basically the systems tells you that you have a bad hard disk and invites you to change it ..or to press f 1 to go with it anyway ..
so..either is calling you to go to bios and set it ..cause you somehow reset the bios to the factory ..or it is a hard disk notice ..
I f it seam not to find any hard disk in teh system ..try to go to bios by pressing F2 or F10 cause it is a hp after all ..and in there change the settings for the ahci function and let it run ide compatible ..it may be the cause too for not booting up from hard disk ..
In the end I suggest to change bios battery ..cause a flat battery wioll also cause F1 on each boot to confirm the settings and set the date and time ..or just reinstall it cause it may have something on hard disk and caused the lost of data ..
let me know more about this if you can not manage or non of my scenarios does fit to the problem ..

My PC is working fine, when my mouse starts lagging and a blue screen pops up, telling me to reboot my computer. so I do, and when it comes on, a screen comes up saying American Trends and some other...


The message you are seeing (ami trends) is the 1st stage of the netbook booting (the bios), this checks that all the system components are present in a sequence.

From what you are describing, it looks as though the hard drive has slowly been failing and this would account for the lagging mouse. The Bios error message "hard disc error" confirms that the bios has not been able to detect the hard drive, which could mean that the drive has failed, the drive controller has failed, or, (possibly) this is virus related. Pressing F1 to resume will achieve nothing, as this is a sort of skipping step that ignores the problem.

Before going into the stages below, try to access the bios (press F2 just as it powers on), look for the screen which lists the boot order and drives attached, see if it "sees" the hard drive (primary master) and that it is selectable. If so, reboot and see if it now detects it. Sometimes removing and reinserting the drive is enough to get it to be recognised
If it then works, worth virus scanning the drive to be on the safe side

Fixing the problem:
Firstly, you need to see if the hard drive has indeed failed, the best way is to substitute the hard drive with another one known to be good. If this is recognised in the bios, than this has most likely been the issue. You will need to reinstall windows (external CDrom and windows OS needed)

Secondly, if the hard drive is not detected by the bios, the fault lies in the hard dive connection ( check the connection from the hard drive to the motherboard, make sure it is firm and not loose, sometimes even a loose fitting drive will not be recognised). If it still is not recognised then the problem lies with the motherboard and will possibly need specialist repair

ACER ASPIRE 3680 --OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND


Hello,

its showing operating system not found, because the system cannot detect your hard disk.

Open your system, remove and fix back the hard disk, then try again.

My boot screen shows secondary slave hard disk error press F1 to resume. if i press f1 it enters into bios setup and the i press esc discard changes logging into windows but secondary disk is not detected....


Check on harddrive you find jumper on it.
Then read on harddisk you can find there is specifiaction for master, slave and cable select jumper settings.
Put jumper as cable select then check.
Also reconnect sata or ide and power cable to harddisk.
Then check .
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
