SOURCE: Toshiba Hard Drive Crash

Hi,
if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.

The main factors in upgrading your drive are interface type and physical size, specifically the thickness of the drive. I haven't had any issues come up from substituting a drive of a different RPM yet. BTW I have a drive that's the same model as yours, it came from a computer that acted up like you're describing, the owner didn't worry about it, and one day it decided it wasn't going to wake up...you shouldn't have any trouble going from an 80gb to a 160gb drive.I believe your drive is an IDE interface, So just make sure you don't order a SATA, toshiba has comparable drives in either interface, I'd look for a good warranty period if the prices are about equal on the drives you're considering

Go to computer management by right clicking 'my computer' then selecting 'manage'. Then select disk management. Find your externel hard drive there ( it should be there). Then right click on it, and choose assign drive letter. Just choose a letter in the middle of the alphabet like N or O, then enter. You should see the icon of your external hard drive inside 'my computer'.

MSI P965 Pt Continually re-boots on start-up


You don't say exactly at what point in the boot sequence the system crashed and restarts. Many things could be at work here. You say you are using the HDD from the previous system. Did you swap this drive straight out and are still using the OS load from the previous system? Windows loads drivers at startup based upon the hardware installed. If you are using and old WIndows load with a new mainboard, this could be the entire cause of your crashes. YOu may be able to get to SAGE mode and remove the old drivers and try to restart the system, but from experience I will tell you that to get the best results when installing a new mainboard, you should reload the OS from the original OS disk, and then load the new mainboard drivers.

I was working in sage instant accounts version 8.2 when my computer crashed. Im trying to go back into sage but it comes up with the message 'you may only run one copy of this programme at any...



If you are unable to logon to Sage you can try deleting the Queue.dta file. All users MUST be logged out of Sage and Sage should not be running. Sage will recreate the queue.dta file when it is restarted. The Queue.dta file can be found in the ACCDATA folder for the Sage Company Data that is experiencing the problem.
Note that the "Username already in use" message from Sage can occur if Sage wasn't shut down tidily for that users session. If you are sure that the user is not actually logged in it's OK to allow Sage to clear the session and log in.

Why is it when i go to start my computer it doesnt wanna load windows, it says disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. My computer was working fine right before. can someone please tell me...


Hi, the computer is not detecting the hard drive or the hard drive is corrupt. At startup you are likely to hear a knocking sound if the hard drive is physically damaged. You can go to bios setup at startup ( could be F1 or Esc). Once there it should indicate if there is a harddrive or not. If it indicates none there the harddrive might have crashed and will need repalcing. I hope this helps.

Hp computer. hard drive light is solid yellow ..non working


Hi 2xcapers

This could be a problem with your IDE or SATA cables that connect your Hard Disk to your Motherboard. Try replacing these before you try the next solution.

The constant yellow light usually indicates a crashed or non-functioning Hard Disk. You can take this to get repaired and only the data where the "Spindal Pin" crashed will be lost, otherwise the Hard Disk should still be fine. The screen does not come on during the event of a crashed or corrupted Hard Disk, so this is another indication that there is a problem with the Hard Disk.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Happy Easter

Crashed hard drive on emachines T5026


Pardon me, but NO! The statement, "two things are responsible for booting up computer RAM and Hard Drive" is simply not true.

A hard drive crash COULD cause the symptoms you describe, but that is more indicative of a virus infection. When you say the XP reinstallation disk would not start it exactly how did you use that disk? Attempt to use the repair console? Boot directly from the disk? Attempt reinstallation of the whole operating system? If you attempted reinstallation, do you also have the specific drivers for all of the components E-Machines used when they built your computer (you will need at least some of them.)

Post again with some more details about how you used the reinstallation disk.

I cannot open my zoombrowser 6.1 software.


gear-16x16.gif Why does Canon ZoomBrowser EX always crash on Vista? By Daniel Stout on Monday 20 July 2009 at 5 am | 6 responsesFor its Pow er Shot dig i tal cam eras, Canon offers photo man age ment soft ware called Zoom Browser EX. But for some rea son, after I had upgraded to Win dows Vista from Win dows XP, Zoom Browser EX no longer worked. In fact, it would crash every time I started up the appli ca tion. It would dis play the splash screen, and then come up with a mes sage that “Zb Mod ule has stopped work ing.” After sev eral new ver sions of Zoom Browser had been released, finally yes ter day I decided to track down what was caus ing the pro gram to crash.
I had emailed Canon tech sup port a week ago and described the prob lem. I also looked in the Canon Knowl­edge Base and found a tech sup port arti cle that describes Zoom Browser crashes. There are a cou ple of sug­gested fixes. One is make sure that com pat i bil ity set tings are not being used, and the other is that there may be a cor rupt file in your Pic tures folder. Nei ther of these answered why Zoom Browser was crash ing on my computer.
Canon tech sup port emailed me back with two pos si ble alter na tives: the first was the cor rupt file case. To deter mine if that was the case, they sug gested mov ing all the files in Pic tures to a tem po rary folder, and then try to launch Zoom Browser. The other solu tion indi cated that there may be a prob lem with the user account on the com puter. Try log ging in as a dif fer ent user on your com puter, it suggested.
Hence, I cre ated a new user and logged in. So with that step, I found that Zoom Browser would now launch fine, although obvi ously none of my pho tos were on this new user. So now that Zoom Browser would launch, I decided to track down exactly why it was crash ing on my old user account. I sur mised that if it was crash ing on my old user account, that it could con ceiv able start crash ing at some point on this new user account, and then I’d be in the same position.
So step by step, I started copy ing over my var i ous files — first pic tures, then doc u ments, etc. Even with my entire Pic tures folder copied over, Zoom Browser was still work ing okay on the new user account. I also started launch ing var i ous appli ca tions to see if there was a con flict between one of these and Zoom Browser. I hypoth e sized that per haps Picasa or some other soft ware was caus ing a problem.
I even tu ally had all of my files copied over, and Zoom Browser was still work ing. I fired up Pho to shop, and sud­denly the prob lem became apparent.
To make a long story short, the rea son Zoom Browser was always crash ing was because of an incom pat i bil ity with WCS color pro files in Win dows Vista. Win dows Color Sys tem is a new method for man ag ing color in Vista. You can access Win dows color man age ment if you right-click on the desk top and select Per son al ize. Then click on Dis play Set tings and then Advanced Set tings… Click the Color Man age ment tab and then click the Color Man age ment… but ton. On the default Devices tab, you can spec ify a default color pro file for the var i ous imag ing devices on your sys tem, such as mon i tors, print ers, scan ners, etc.
I have a Sam sung Sync Mas ter T260 LCD mon i tor. Win dows Update offers to install the device dri ver. I’ve had Sam sung mon i tors in the past as well, and for some rea son, Adobe Pho to shop does not like the Sam sung mon­i tor device dri vers. When you install the dri ver a default color pro file gets installed for the mon i tor. And when you launch Pho to shop, it’ll dis play a mes sage that the cur rently selected color pro file is not valid. It asks if you want to use the pro file any way or ignore that color profile.
My solu tion to elim i nate the mes sage in Pho to shop has been to go into the color man age ment fea tures of Vista and select a dif fer ent default color pro file. Since I work mostly on the web, I have been using the “sRGB vir tual device model pro file” under the WCS Device Pro files. It has a file name of wsRGB.cdmp.
This was effec tive in elim i nated the mes sage upon the startup of Pho to shop, but what I deter mined yes ter day is that mak ing a WCS device pro file the default, Canon’s Zoom Browser EX would crash. Every time. Zoom­Browser has been around for a while, and it seems almost under stand able that it might not have com pat i bil ity with a new fea ture in Vista.
The workaround that I found that sat is fies both the Pho to shop mes sage and the Zoom Browser crashes is to use the clas sic Win dows ICC color pro files. If you scroll down, you should see listed “sRGB IEC61966-2.1′ with a file name of “sRGB Color Space Profile.icm.” (Check Wikipedia to find out why sRGB is a good color space choice for web devel op ers and design ers.) Set this as the default color pro file, and the prob lem is solved. Zoom Browser EX now works fine, and Pho to shop no longer objects to the color pro file. Perfect!
I sent this infor ma tion to Canon, and they responded quickly that they were for ward ing my descrip tion and solu tion of the prob lem to the rel e vant par ties. Hope fully they’ll fix this bug in their soft ware, but I’ve posted the solu tion here in case any one else in run ning into this spe cific prob lem with Zoom Browser EX.
