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.

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.

There could be damage to the Boot Sector files or a problem with the hard disk drive.

First run diagnostics on the hard drive (Fn Key plus the Power Button) see if the hard drive fails diagnostics. If it fails the diagnostic, then replace the hard drive. If it passes, boot to your Windows XP CD, enter recovery console by pressing R at the 1st prompt, then run the command: CHKDSK /R <enter>

Operating system not found


get a win 98 boot disk. get to the bios and enable floppy drive or usb floppy boot first. insert disk and turn on the computer you should get a menu screen select start with out cdrom support when you get a command prompt type FDISK MBR. this will repair your master boot record remove disk and reboot. or the hard drive is not plugged in or you may need to reinstall the OS again. if you reinstall the OS be sur to get the info off of your drive before you do it. it will erase existing info and make it really hard to recove that data.
