Problem with HDD, I think

I have a problem with my harddisc, as it gets stuck, totally out of nowhere.. When it happens the light indicating my HD, just lights constantly. It gets stuck at totally random, and it is NOT when I run a specific program etc.
Sorry for my bad english, I'm from Norway, hehe:)

I'm a bit newbie at PC and BIOS's, but I have read that the problem could due to some setting in the BIOS. It has been a problem all along.

acer aspire 6920g

Windows Vista 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo (2.1 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache) 4GB DDR2 320 GB HDD Nvidia GeForce 9500M GS I hope you have an answer:)

Where is the harddisc located in a PC Desktop?

This is a picture of a hard disk drive (HDD) that should be located inside of the computer case. There are two types of interfaces that are prevalent in today's PCs'. One is IDE and the other is SATA. The easiest way to tell the interface is to look at the cables connected to the HDD. If the cable is wide and flat with at lease 40 wires it is IDE. This is important because if you plan to use the internal HDD as an external storage device you have to purchase a device that converts this connection on the HDD to a USB connection. Unless you have an extremely large HDD it would be much easier to just purchase an external drive. Here is an example:

This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

The HDD can go at anytime without warning, does the Asus logo come up on the screen?

The power light comes on and the harddrive doesnt seem to spin up and the indicator just flashes

i think your HDD doesn't work any more, this can be a problem in the HDD, i think the Disk stuck in his cage, (sorry, but me English is not that good ;). maybe you can fix it by open it in a room without sunlights, UV can be fatal for hardware. look carefully if it stucks, look at the little "ARM" that reads the disk by moving over it, it can be that this one press to hard on the disk and that the disk don't spin anymore. otherwise there can be a lot more problems why it is stuck, hope it will work out for you, good luck.

My qosmio av600 will not boot the harddrive light only comes on for a second then goes out.

Please go to BIOS and check whether the Harddisc is showing or not. IF it is not there you need to replace the HDD with new one.

Some times you can't enter the BIOS also. Then check the RAM. Clean it ann use or buy new one.

Please vote for me.

My laptop acer aspire 3100 crashed. it was fine before i turned the laptop off, but when I tried to turn it on again it got stuck starting windows up, I have Vista. I waited for some time but after 30 min....

Hello rijotomas,
First you can try to pull the battery out and unplug the power adapter for a minute. Then plug the laptop back in without the battery. Then try to turn it back on.

Repair harddisc have data change from ntsf format to fat

If you in fact formatted your HDD you need to take the drive to a drive recovery center or get the tools to hook the drive up to a working laptop/desktop and use recovery software like Ontrack Recovery Manager.
