My NEO Q Note Laptop's HDD IDE 40gb needs replacement

My NEO Q Note laptop suddenly can not continue loading the Windows. I asked a computer repair outfit in Quezon City to check it. their technicians had repair my PC and other laptop before. I find them capable an businesslike. They sent a technician who tried to make it operational but did not succeed. He said that the Hard Disk Drive IDE 40 gb is defective (Seagate is the Brand) and must be replaced. The technician did not offer any part to me. He told me to look for a part.e I went around Gilmore, Greenshills, etc. and I can not find the IDE type. They have the ATA type.
One store staff told me that the Seagate HDD IDE is still after shaking it and did not hear any sound.
The Seagate HDD IDE has a 5 year warranty attached on it. It was manufacture 2005 and it is only 2008 now.
Please help me. Thanks very much.

Compaq presario 2594 us laptop , after boot-up get message ( operating system not found) tried recovery disc, will not formate hdd , will get this message in windows set-up , SET-UP...


I've gist had the same problem after flashing bios ...
go to BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE. it worked for me.
original instructions:
also You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.
PLUS it seems if only 128 MB is showing as memory then the memory sticks might be damaged and not able to retain information/data to complete the installation process. Best take them out clean it properly & replace & try again. Nothing to do with BIOS!

Laptop 2nd HDD(Slave) running max 20mb/s


Why not install a new 2.5" hdd in your laptop caddy.I replaced my 40gb with a 160gb, works fine and the data tranfer speed is better than a slave configuration. The average speed of around 40mb/sec Is because of the smaller platter, the amount of cache, the firmware installed and so on.

My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

Ntlrd is missing


hi

First I would backup the hard drive (save important data, docs, pics, files etc..). to do that without loosing data (hope the hard drive is not deleted or formatted prior to this)

you need and external box (ide/sata hdd caddy or cable) where you put your hdd in and plug it in ,externaly to an other pc or laptop.

if the other pc/laptop see your hdd then it' good news. try searching for you files and docs e.g.(C:\Documents and Settings\Student\My Documents )

after the backup try scanning your hdd using CHKDSK /f /r from the command prompt (start-run-cmd-enter then type chkdsk (disk letter) /f /r + enter) this might take few minutes.

put the hdd back and restart, see if it will work. If not, you might need to re-install the operating system.

hope this solution helped.

Windows xp will not load


When it asks for administrator password, and you didn't have one set, just push enter and you'll be able to continue.

If you don't need any information from the computer, use a program to writes zeros to the drive and then you'll be able to install windows. HDD manufacturers provide a program to zero the drive

Can't start up the laptop as Media test failure


You may have to go back into the bios and see if there is an option to automatically find HDD, or you may have to manually enter them in the Standard Bios Settings. It may be that the old HDD are still in the bios's recognised setup.
