******** Hard Drive,

Bad news - They are s**t to try and fix

Good news - Can be done ^_^

Firstly the almighty question, Do you have anything that you cannot replace or really need on that hard drive?

No? You can purchase a new one these days around $100 for 500GB just go into a computer store and ask for a 2.5inch laptop HDD

Yes? You can send it away to be repaired, or if you want to do it from home you can order the same hard drive (must be exact or very similar) If you take the hard drive out of the laptop and open it up carefully! there is a green circuit board thats easily accessible and easy to detach. you need another one of those exact circuit boards so you can switch it over.

When a hard drive stops working its usually the circuit board that goes, its what makes it read and write to the disk which is deeper in the enclosure and holds all your info.

Good luck and let me know how you get on

Cant initialize disk


Hi Anon
Try connecting your hard drive to another computer and running the windows disk tools to test your drive, make sure that the options to automatically fix errors are selected, if this does not work then a suite of hard drive tools from Acronis (disk director) or Paragon (Hard disk manager) may be able to fix your problem.

How can i fix my acer 5515 smart failure predicted on hard disk 4 wdc wd1600bevt-22zcto-s1


This error message is warning that the hard disk could fail soon. It pays to back up your data frequently so when the hard disk fails you will not lose youe data.
The only way to fix this problem is to install a new hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk and the Acer laptop's device drivers plus your programs and data.

My Dell Dimension 2400 refuses to load Windows XP


Hi,
What happens?Does it hang on the loading page or does it restart itself before loading?
If it hangs on the loading page,press CTRL,ALT and DEL.This boots the system.
If it restarts itself,remove the hard disk and re-fix it again.Problem solved?
Remove the CMOS battery and the hard disk and re-fix them again.Problem solved?
If not,you may have to repair your operating system.
This how you do it:-
  • Remove your hard disk and enslave[fix it as a secondary drive] it on another machine with a good operating system.
  • Start the machine.Accept to run unnix[using two drives]
  • The machine will automatically detect your hard disk's failure on the operating system and repair the damaged files.
  • On completion and after Windows opens,turn off the machine and remove your hard disk.
  • Fix the hard disk now on your machine and start it.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

When i switch the laptop, i hear a knocking sound from hard disk and the computer displays non - system disk or error disk plz help


Good Day Kawindwe!

I am sorry but I think the hard disk is on its last leg. A knocking sounds is the first symptoms of faulty hard disk. It is better to replace it.




The non-system disk error is displayed when the CMOS BIOS failed to detect the hard disk.

There is a small chances of making your hard disk work again. It worked for me before maybe it might work with you too.

First, turn off your Laptop. Remove the power supply adaptor from your Laptop. Remove the battery. Press and hold the power on button for at least 5 seconds to discharge remaining volts on your unit. After awhile, return the battery, plug in the power supply adaptor and turn on Laptop. See if that recognize again your hard disk.

If the first did not fix it, try this one. Turn off your Laptop. Disconnect your hard disk and then reseat the connectors properly. Then, turn on your device. Did that fix your problem?

Kawindwe, in case that fixed it, I recommend you back up your files cause the hard disk will not last that long.

Boot disk failure no hard disk found


The error means that your system is not able to detect the hard drive on the system, check if the hard drive wire connections are tight and not loose and then try rebooting the system.

Look for hard drive stats on POST whether it succeeds or fails. This is how you can do that.
When system boots up, press the PAUSE?BREAK on the black screen and see whats system comment for your hard drive power test. If it succeeds and your hard drive's connections are also tight then possibly your hard drive might have crashed ( which means there are bad sectors on the hard disk).

Try performing disk checking on the hard drive to see if there are any bad sectors on the hard disk, the disk check will automatically fix the soft errors but if the errors and hard errors in that case the disk checking utility will not automatically fix the errors and you will need to get a new hard drive.

Thanks !!!

My computer HDD have bad sactors please help to remove this on


When a hard disk has bad sectors, these sectors can be fixed by running check disk. This is a temporary fix as the hard disk is nearly worn out and it will get more bad sectors and evenually the hard disk will fail completely.
Bad sectors occur when the magnetic oxide on the disk platters is worn out and data cannot be written or read from these sectors.
To run check disk click Start - My Computer - right click on C Drive and click on Properties - click on Tools tab - then Check Now in Error Checking
I suggest once this has been done, you back up your data and purchase a new hard disk ready to install Windows etc. when the hard disk fails completely. You may want to install a new hard drive before the old hard drive fails completely.
