That is the end of the line for that drive, you need a new drive. You MAY be able to recover the data on the drive you have by installing it in another computer (or this one once you get a new drive and reinstall your operating system) as a second drive and copying what you need or just ghosting the whole drive. Sometimes if you put the drive in the freezer it will help.

If you have important data on this drive you may want to have a pro try to recover it. When drives fail they can destroy internal parts, so use it as little as possible during the recovery process.

Hp compaq nx6110 hangin when booting and difficult to recognise the hard drive


Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at startup until the boot menu appears. Then select "safe mode with networking". If it boots into safe mode then see if your missing some drivers in device manager. If you are then download and install them. Next run some anti-virus and anti-malware programs to make sure your system is clean.

Dell inspiron 1545 Laptop computer is getting BSOD on boot, when first ran diagnostics got error: Hard Drive - DST Test Results - Fail Error Code 2000-0142 Msg Hard Drive 0 - self test unsuccessful status...


The error indicates that there's a hard drive issue. If it just happened after the hard disk is reinstalled, remove it and reinstall it. It could be a problem caused by loose connection or improper connections. If the same problem repeats, install the hard drive on another system (to verify whether it works on another machine or not and to confirm it still works). If it doesn't work on another computer/system then your only option to run the system is replacing the hard disk. If it works on another computer or if it's detected on another system, then there could be problem with the hard disk, eg. Corrupt Partition, Windows Corrupt etc....
First of all, try booting into Safe Mode. You have to press F8 during the startup to go into Advanced Boot Options. Once you are in the Windows Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode using the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard. If it still doesn't work, it's the hard disk issue. Try with another Hard Disk.
But if in case you can boot into safe mode, check the Hard Disk for errors. In other words, run Windows Checkdisk utility. Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

When I try to boot up my computer, it will get to windows loading, then the BSOD appears. It then restarts and the process starts all over again. I have tried to run my Compaq Presario V2000 in Safe Mode...


That is an indication the disk is incompartible to computer. Second a compartible disk may have scatches of dirt requirng cleaning with damp tissue to reachive the installation process.

I recently had a BSOD problem with my Compaq now display problem


Try this, it may work, start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back. Otherwise you may have to bite the bullet, and do a new install, into the same directory as it is in now.

Blue screen of death presario v2000


So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.

The hard drive has failed and you will need to replace it.

Compaq Presario V2000 boot problem


Bios is not on an hard drive, is on a memory chipinside computer. Your main problem is not with Bios, but with system.
On many Compaq you can start the recovery tool by pressing f10 or f11 on startup. The system recovery tool it is located on hard disk, if it does not start it had been deleted or is damaged.

In your case Windows is corrupted, that is the reason why it is freezing , and then giving the blue error screen.

You need to get a Windows setup disk and reintall Windows. If you install windows from a generic setup disk you will need to install drivers after installing.
Drivers can be downloaded from HP website.

Another solution is calling the phone number listed on the user manual to contact HP. you can buy from them an original recovery CD, in this case you won't need drivers.

Otherwise you can ask a quote to a local repair shop for a system reinstall, I think it is about $80.

Laptop compaq v2000


your windows install is screwed up. i'd dig up your Windows XP CDand pop that in and do a repair install. if it still doesnt work then i'd enter the bios setup (hit F10 on compaq boot screen) and look in there for "Hard Drive Test" and run that. be aware it will take 70 mins on a 60GB hard drive, and longer for a bigger drive. if the hard drive passes the test then you may want to boot up the XP cd and do a fresh install, opting to format the drive. be aware that formatting WILL delete anything and everything on the laptop.

if the hard drive fails the test, then obviously you need to get a replacement drive and reinstall Windows on that. if the hard drive failed, any data on it is most defenetly toast.

Unmounable boot volume


This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.
