This normally means that the hard drive is starting to go bad. Back up your data as soon as possible and if the PC is under warranty contact them for a replacement. For further information about the SMART error please see http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000184.htm

Hi, anyone knows how to reformat fujitsu lifebook S6420 laptop?



You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave

Hope this helps you

You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

My coby netbook model no NBPC1023XPBLX keep telling me that PRI Master Hard Disk: S.M.A.R.T. status bad how can I fxi this


This means that there is a predictive failure of your hard drive. You can't tell exactly when it is going to fail, but you have to be ready for it. This is a kind of early warning.
My recommendation is to backup all data in your hard drive, replace it with a new one, & restore your data to the new drive.

Probably the hard drive is dead. Did you drop it recently? Anyway, it could be just the connector, if your good with hardware you could open it and check. I would suggest you to use the warranty though.

Is it normal for my ACER Aspire 5552 to make a lot of noise (whining, clicking) whenever it is processing a command? It is loud.


The hard drive is probably the problem, in some cases they get louder as time goes on. The clicking sound you describe is the hard drive sampling your data, and the whining is the motor turning the disc in hardware. It is likely the hard drive will fail eventually.

Safeboot corrupted (error 92h)


Check the BIOS setting to see if the hard disk is detected. If not either the hard disk controller or the hard disk is faulty.

First thing I would try is to remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this hard drive as an external hard drive and you can open the various folders and files, then I would backup your data.
If the hard drive is not detected then the hard drive is dead and data cannot be retrieved with this method.

Retrieving data from damaged hard disk is possible. There are companies that can remove the disk platters from the damaged hard drive and with special equipment may be able to recover your data, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
