Only ocationaly rebooting the system. most of the time it says operating system not found.what could be the reason.Please help.My system Fujitsu seimens amilo pro 2065


Hey, either a hard disk corruption or some missing/corrupt files - Solution: Format and reinstall your Operating system. If that doesnt work, maybe you need a hard disk replacement.
But before that, are you sure you haven't connected any USB drives or flash drives or an external hard drive when you computer boots up. That could be the reason. Solution: disconnect any such device before you start your computer.

Hi, I'm having trouble with my Kanguru Solutions Duplicator. It says "Hard Drive Corrupted - error #233 (89)" I can still burn cds, but am wondering if there really is a problem. Thanks!


teacher357,

Given the error code you provided it looks like you have corrupt hard drive. You can try reformatting the hard drive or just replacing it.

There is a good chance that your data is corrupted on that drive in which case you will probably want to recover it. TestDisk is a powerful and free open source software tool kit that can help you recover lost, deleted, corrupt data off your bad hard drive. You can also try to slave your corrupt hard drive to another computer and try to access it that way.

I would try to recover the data and replace the bad hard drive with a new one. I would try www.newegg.com or www.tirgerdirect.com for some good deals on hard drives.

I really hope this helps and good luck!

Respectfully,

Adam04

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable


You unplugged it when data was still written on it so it was corrupted. Some files are still recoverable so use

Hard Drive PS3


Hi there,

The easiest method of working around a Corrupted hard drive is this.

You need to go out and purchase a 3.5" SATA USB Enclosure. they are quite cheap.
you then must remove your Hard drive from the PS3 and insert it into the enclosure.
connect the enclosure to your PC, the HD Will show up in your computer, you must then perform a FULL FORMAT on the harddrive under the FAT32 Format.

Once done, re-insert your hard-drive, and the problems should have gone !

If they do persist or the hard drive is still corrupted, i would suggest contacting sony Customer support !

Hope this helps ?!
