Shut off the pc completely then open the cpu machine.then in that just remove all the wires connected to the hard disk also remove the power supply wire from the mother board then again reconnect the wires properly.also clean if any dust u can see on the mother board .and then ON the pc and check out .if same error then the hard disk has to be replaced to solve the problem.because either the hard disk is corrupted or having some internal problem.if its new and under warranty get it replaced.the company will provide u the replacement.

Restart your computer as soon as it switches on, press [Delete] or [Enter] repeatedly (once every second) until the blue BIOS screen appears. Use the cursor keys to select the Auto-Detect Hard Disks option. When it finishes a few seconds later, go to 'Save & Exit' or 'Exit & Save Changes'

And once again reboot .
Hope this helps .

When that happens , it is often because the hard disk is damaged and must be replaced.

    the problem is not the monitor, but the computer.

    The hard disk fail can be logical or physical.

    When the disk data inside the computer gets corrupted you say you have an hard disk logical failure.
    You fix this reinstalling the system and eventually formatting the disk.

    In this case, if the disk format is fine you reinstall windows and can recover your data.

    When instead the disk has an electronic or mechanichal fault, the hard disk failure is physical.

    In this case the hard disk (and the data inside ) cannot be easily recovered.

    The disk must be replaced, and the system installed into the new disk.

    This job can be done at a local repair shop, or calling a technician.

    If the computer is under warranty , call the manufactrurer.

When trying to start my computer emachinesE627, i have a black screen that says error loading operating system


The computer can not see the Operating System. This can be caused by several things, so I will just list a few possiblities for you here:

If you have a USB flash drive or external HD plugged into the PC. Remove it while the computer boots. Some machines are set to boot from a flash drive and will search for an operating system on it and display NO OS if the bios can not find one.

If the Hard drive has been removed or replaced recently then the Jumper settings may not be correct on the new drive.

If the computer was having trouble booting periodically, freezing or experiencing blue screens before this message, then you may have HD corruption or possible disk failure. With HD corruption you only need to run chkdisk /p within recovery console in XP or run the Vista recovery center with vista. HD failure is a dead disk, no option but to replace.

Bad RAM or a dead CMOS battery can also cause this type of failure. So check these also.

This can also be caused by a damaged master boot record or primary boot partition. Run fixboot or fixmbr from the recovery console on XP or just run the Vista Boot Repair Console in Vista

Worm Viruses and Rootkits that damage the primary boot sector or the Master Boot Record can also cause the OS to mysteriously disappear. So if none of the above sound like they are for you, then you can try looking for one of these on the affected drive.


Hope this helps,
Gill

the monitor is not getting any video information from your computer .. check the connection at the computer to make sure it is fully plugged in .. make sure the video card (if it has one) is securely in place ... make sure the monitor is actually plugged into the right connector .. you may have a bad video card or a damaged cable to your monitor .. you can plug the monitor into another computer to make sure its ok ..

17 inch monitor goes blank


  • Prepare to diagnose the computer .
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices.
    2. Perform a Hard Reset.
    3. Disable the Automatic restart on system failure option.
  • Remove any non-system disc from the computer . During startup, the BIOS checks different devices to locate the Windows operating system. If the boot order is set to check the optical disc drive or the card reader (if the notebook is equipped with a card reader) before it checks the hard drive, and there is a non-system disc in the CD/DVD drive or there is a memory card in the card reader, the boot will fail. This problem can be resolved by setting the BIOS to check the hard drive first.
  • Reseat the memory modules . If you are getting memory errors, most BIOS versions have additional tests that can be run to test the memory. There could be a problem if one of the sticks is defective or loose in the memory slots. To determine what is causing the memory failure, disconnect all electrical power, and then remove and re-insert the memory modules firmly into the slots. Some HP Notebook PCs come with two sticks of memory and have two memory slots. On most notebooks, the memory module compartment is located on the bottom of the case, but the exact position varies by model. On some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
  • Reset the BIOS to default condition . If you have made changes in the BIOS setting, such as disabling a device or changing the boot order, it could prevent the computer form starting properly. To restore the BIOS to its factory-recommended settings, turn on the computer and press f10 to access BIOS setup, and then press f9 to load the default BIOS configuration.
  • Perform a memory self test . There are different reasons that you may see a memory error. There could be a physical problem or it could be a program error. If the error is a program error, you will most likely see a Windows error message. If there is a physical problem with a memory module, the computer may fail part way through the boot process. Most computers have a built-in memory test to help identify if the memory modules are seated properly and are free of errors. To run the memory test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Start-up Test to run the system memory test. Press the Esc key once the memory test is complete.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Memory Test .
  • Reseat the hard drive . If you get a specific hard drive error message on a black screen indicating the hard drive error, reseat the hard drive. If the computer has been dropped or jarred, or the hard drive has been replaced recently, the drive may not be seated tightly. The hard drive LED should blink if the hard drive has a solid connection in the notebook. Refer to the on-line User's Guide for specifics on locating and removing / replacing a hard drive. HP provides video directions for performing this task for many computer models. Remove and reseat the hard drive firmly into the mounting bracket.
  • Test the hard drive . If you get a hard drive error message, you can test the hard drive. Many computer problems are related to soft failures (or degraded performance) on the hard drive. The HP Hard Drive Self Test will repair soft errors on the hard drive, but it will not report the errors. After the test is complete, restart the computer to see if test repaired the problem you may been experiencing. To run the hard drive test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Hard Disk Test to run the hard drive test. Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Primary Hard Disk Self Test . Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.

    Hi, My screen blacked out, However If I press the on /off button, my current page will show perfectly for a half a second & gop black again. I can repeat this overe & over.


    These have age related problems on the inverter board which lights the 4 bulbs
    I repair these regularly through ebay.
    Most common cause is a blown fuse on the inverter board, sometimes that is caused by bad capacitors or transistors. Usually it's just from age and heat.
    Fuses are marked F1 and F2 and located on each side of the white large plug that feeds the board. These can be checked with continuity meter.

    I'm receving "disk boot failure" error. Compaq wf1907 monitor


    if your computer has a floppy drive and you have inserted a disk, remove the floppy disk and try booting again.
    if this is not your case you can try out a couple of things
    1. Check the CMOS of your computer
    To do so
    - Boot your computer and on the manufacturers logo window press F2 or Delete depending on your computer.
    - In the bios check for the availability of a hard disk drive under the storage category if it exists look for the boot order window or menu. check i your hard disk is enabled for booting in this page.
    - If all the other methods do not work and your OS is Win XP you can reinstall it in repair mode. Otherwise it would be better to visit your nearest service store.

    It's giving me a disk error... A disk error occurred press alt,ctrl, and delete to restart and when i do that some message pops up.


    There is a problem with your hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out, remove the battery, push the power button for approx. 10 seconds. Re-install the battery and re-install the hard drive. If the same message comes up again, try to boot the computer off a windows installation disc. If this all fails, you just may have lost your hard drive.

    Computer monitor screen is blue


    Can you access the bios set up.

    If the bios setup is running evrything is ok except the hard disk.

    To find out if there is any problem with monitor just put off the monitor and disconnect it from the cpu. Then turn it back on. If the no signal message is coming, then monitor is ok.
    Your hard disk is the main suspect

    If the same blue screen comes then monitor need repairs.
    You may also try with another monitor on your computer to see the results. If the sane happens it is the hard disk
