Error 0x000000ed and it dos not start in normal or safe mode


Based on what MS say, you probably have a bad disk. If you have noticed that the system has gotten slower and the disk light seemed to be on all the time, your disk is bad. You have a minimal chance of recovering your data.

If the system is over 3 years old, time for a new system.

This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions is true:
  • Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true:
    • You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
    • The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.
  • The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.

probably that's because of faulty hard disk bus. replace that bus, and your problem will be most probably solved.
This mostly happens when the bus connecting to hard disk are fault or not connected properly. because of this pc fails to load os....

Query regarding maximum capacity of motherboard support for a hard disk


your cpu does not have much to do with the hdd you may be getting...
technically you should have no problem by getting the largest hdd you can afford. what you may want to take into consideration besides your budget is:
what os you're using.. dos, win9x, xp, vista?
a. if you have dos the smaller you can get probably the better as you may not be able to create a large partition. (chances are you may not get anything new smaller than 40 gigs.. and that would be a big waste of money and hard drive room)
b. if you have win9x, your probably using fat32 for your filesystem meaning you may not be able to go above 32 gig when creating your partition and formating your drive.
c. if your using win xp or vista... and your planning on using NTFS when partitioning the drive instead of FAT32...(as you should unless your operating system is on a FAT32 partition) you can go for the largest hdd you can afford.

Need to install a seagate 7200.9 hard drive from a dell computer into another computer.


I don't quite understand what you are asking?

If you have a SATA drive then you need to connect it to a computer that has a SATA interface. You obviously also need to power it from that computer.

Since you haven't told me what the problem is or what the 'other' computer is, I can't really give you much more info.

Assuming you have a SATA interface on the 'other computer' and you have a suitable power cable adaptor from 5-pin to 15-pin (which you may be able to take off of the Dell) then of course you can connect the drive.

Are you are asking, is it possible to boot the other computer using this drive - answer unlikely.
Are you asking is it possible to connect this drive as a 2nd hard disk onto the 'other computer' and get the data off of it? Answer - yes.

When i connect my seagate via usb nothing comes up on my pc, the light comes on on the external h/d but nothing pops up on the pc? help please i need precious photos on it. thanks


have you try connect your pen drive to the same usb port, is it working?
If Pendrive is working but not the Seagate hardisk. Most propably is your USB power is not enough to support the External Seagate hard disk, you need to supply more power to the Seagate hard disk by using USB Y cable(1 end connect to Seagate hardisk where the other end got 2 USB connector to connect to your PC).

Hi silverend,

I have some questions and some recommendations for you...

The original problem of the system not booting might have been temporarily compounded by moving it to a different system as a secondary or slave disk. You'll want to make sure that is not an issue 1st b4 continuing w/ trouble-shooting or testing the failed disk.

(01) Is the hard disk installed in the same computer it was running in properly before?

(02) If not, was it the Master of 1st drive on the previous system - the system where it originally failed? In other words, did it contain a boot volume? (Was it the disk that the system used to boot off of?)

(03) You said the file system is FAT. Is that FAT16 or FAT32?

(04) Does the drive have an operating system on it? If so, what operating system is it?

(05) Are you sure the jumpers are set correctly for the configuration you have it in now (slaved to your master drive)?

(06) Check to see if the drive jumpers are set for LIMITED CAPACITY? (See HERE for more information regarding jumper settings on Seagate hard disks.)

(07) Are you using a MASTER/SLAVE configuration for your two hard drives or are you using CS (cable select)? If you are using CS, both drives must be jumpered to CS and the primary (MASTER) drive should be the LAST drive on the cable (at the end).

The drive may very well be, physically, fine. However, the best way to determine that is to...

1st, Ensure that the jumper settings are correct for its current configuration (slaved to your master hard disk or as a secondary CS disk on the primary EIDE controller) and...

2nd, run diagnostics on a hard disk using boot media rather than from w/in an operating system. This is a much more reliable and thorough means of testing your hard disk.

I recommend that, once you've determined that your jumper configuration are correct (for BOTH hard disks), you run Seagate's boot diagnostics (Seagate Utilities) to test the hard drive.

(07) Do you have any data that needs to be recovered off of this drive? If so, let us know and we'll help you to recover it.

(08) If not, you can use the Seatools diagnostics to write zeros to the drive effectively erasing it and along w/ any corruption. This will allow for a more thorough surface test, too as the diagnostics will test the surface while writing to it. (This is a last result, however. Particularly if you have an operating sytem, data, etc. that you'd like to preserve.)


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ
