What does a biohd-2 message mean?


That error code means that your hard disk has failed. You can use the hard disk diagnostic test in BIOS for further confirmation. If either short or long test does not pass or causes your PC to reboot, the hard disk must be replaced
Unfortunately the normal solution for this is:
Locate your Recovery disc set or usb recovery media. I hope you took the time to make it.( your HP software asked you to do this)
Purchase a new SATA2 hard disk of equal (500 GB) or greater size. Remove the failed disk and install the new one.
Follow the instructions here and restore your original operating system to the new hard disk.

Master hard disc..Message stating that Windows has detected a problem.


Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk.


+ Start the backup process


* Ask me again later


If the disk fails before the next warning, you could lose all of the programs and documents on the disk.

Immediate steps
Because a disk failure will cause you to lose all programs, files and documents on the disk, you should back up your important information immediately. Try not to use your computer until you have repaired or replaced the hard disk.

Do pc run slow due to hard disk fail


If you have hard disk problems then this can cause many other problems on your computer, including impacting on performance due to the resources which are used in handling and trying to correct the disk problems.

I would strongly recommend that you make a full backup of your computer while it is still working and before the hard disk fails completely.

If you are using Windows 7 then you can do this using the Windows Backup process to make a System Image backup which can then be used to recover your system provided the image is written to either an external USB hard drive or to DVD discs.

If you have a different version of Windows, then you should try using one of the free Backup programs such as Easeus Todo Backup or Paragon Backup & Recovery Free - the links for these are below:

If you want to replace the failing hard disk yourself (after you have made a full backup as advised above) then see the Dell Inspiron 580 Service Manual for details on how to do this.

Hard disk failure imm


Hello

The hard drive is a mechanical device that WILL fail - it is only a matter of time. Since you are being prompted that yours is about to fail, you need to get a backup of your data as soon as possible.

Use a USB memory stick, USB hard drive, CD or DVD disk or network drive to copy your data from the hard drive immediately. Once your data is copied to a safe location, you can run CHKDSK /r /f from the CMD line to check the hard drive and possibly fix issues.

If the hard drive has "Bad Sectors", you will need to replace the hard drive.

My dell 470 cant detect any hard disk while installing windows xp what should i do?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then most likely the hard disk has failed.
Try removing the hard disk and inserting it back into the computer, just in case it was not making proper connection.
If this did not fix the problem, then you need to replace the faulty hard disk.

No hard disk found


Your hard disk has failed or the disk is not connected correctly.

Check data and power connections
Check Master/Slave jumper on disk if it is not a SATA drive
Press F2 or DEL at boot to access motherboard setup and see if the disk appears

If you still don't see your disk it has failed.
Have a computer service shop perform the work and assist you with installing...might be cheaper to buy a new computer...

If this helps, please vote for this solution.

Hardisk failure


If you are talking about fixing it, forget that. You really cannot fix a hard drive if it fails. To get the old data off is almost impossible for anyone who isn't a pro. All you can do is to replace the hard drive, and from now on, back up your drive to an outside sourse, like a usb hard drive. Then if it should fail, you at least have your data
