It could be the HD failing, the onboard controller failing (meaning the motherboard, or more importantly the laptop is toast), or it might simply be that the HD connection to the controller just needs to be reseated. The first thing to try is the HD test built into the BIOS. It should give a clearer idea of what is actually happening to the LT.

Hello when I try start my laptop I get a little blue box saying : selected boot image did not authenticate. Press enter to continue. When I do this it shuts itself down. I tried starting it in safe mode...

There are serious errors on you hdd and the system sees it as a hdd failure and consequetially it won't boot. Place your OS disc in the dvd drive, boot from it and choose repair.

My acer 5232 will not boot up. The power is on and eventualy give a failure message suggesting to insert recovery disk. I do not have a recovery disk. It was taking a long time to boot before this...

Sounds like the disk drive has errors probably caused by a mechanical failure. You had a number of previous failures before this one and the disk is most likely unusable.
A local computer shop (not a big box store) MIGHT be able to recover your data but not your programs.
Hope this helps. I would appreciate your feed back.

Hi i forget my password bios hp nc6230 and the computer give me a message:Disk1 failure 1781 please you can help me?

Well... for the BIOS password, that's usually fairly easy. There is a jumper on most motherboards labeled CLRCMOS (some actually say CLR PASSword). Should be 3 pins, with a jumper set on 2 of them. move the jumper to the other side, press the power button. Nothing should happen, no fans or anything. then move the jumper back, and startup. Should clear out the password. As far as the disk failure- may have a bad hdd. download DFT, burn it, and run an advanced scan on your hard drive.
