There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.

SOURCE: have an acer aspier 3620 - it is saying operating

Yes, you have hard drive problem, you get PXE error becuase when it cannot bootup from hard drive, it will try to bootup through he network instead. The hard drive must show up in the BIOS. You can verify by try it in another laptop if you can.

SOURCE: Gateway M-6843 laptop does not recognize hard drive.

The ticking sound is known as the "click of death". After a while the bearings in the hard drive get worn down, and the read head has trouble finding the data you want. In this case the drive puts the read head back to "square one" so it can try to trace its steps back to the wanted data. this makes a click noise. Thus the "click of death". Im sorry to say you need a new hard drive, and that your data is likely inaccessible without drastic measures. One method you can try is putting the hard drive in the freezer for 10 minutes. This will stiffen the bearings and may give you a couple of minutes to grab some data. You will want to have your new drive installed and windows loaded on it so you can readily access the data through a usb to sata/ide cable, which you can get on line fairly cheap. Other options are services like OnTrack, who have a team of engineers who open drives and pull the platters and try to get your data, but you are looking at thousands of dollars just for them to try.

"the parameter is not correct" msg re WD My Book, unable to access


Try plugging it into a different computer to see what it does. Sometimes a computer's operating system will recognize an external drive differently if it has only a slight problem, whereas another computer's configuration may treat the problem differently. Some external hardrive software can get jumbled by the programs of a computer or sometimes even their own software programs can cause slight problems. It sounds like a software problem with bugs that can be ironed out. Also some computers will change the drive name to fit into the order of drives it recognizes. Good luck!

Ibm/lenova doesn't recognize my harddrive


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Toshiba satellite l750-16l "a disk read error occurred"will a new hard drive fix


You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Emachines D4362 starts only after many button pushes


Sounds like you might have corrupt window system files or the machine might not be recognizing the hard drive.
Press the DEL button to go into the BIOS. Go to the section that shows you the hard drive. If it doesn't show you a hard drive model and shows none then your hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. If your hard drive is recognized in the BIOS then you'll need to try and reinstall windows. If you can't get windows reinstalled then the hard drive is bad at that point as well.

Hello,
it is a known issue that these particular drives sometimes don't get recognized by the Operating System, after coming out of Sleep, Stand By, or Hibernation.
Simply try to disconnect and reconnect the drive again in the USB port, if this doesn't work then, Disconnect it from the USB and connect it to the Firewire. if this doesn't work then, Restart the computer.
It should solve the problem.

My laptop crashed and we installed a new hard drive, as HP said, but we received a message that it did not recognize operating system. So we ordered recovery disks and put those in turned it on, still no...


ok, First you should understand the new hard drive is empty, it is not even formatted. At this point the most likely issue is the bios not recognizing the Hard Drive because the Bios is not set to automatically detect the hard drive. Enter the Bios and go to the hard Drive selection sub menu and have the computer automatically detect the hard drive size and type. Then go to the boot sequence menu and alter the boot order to CDROM, Floppy (If you have one), Hard Drive, Network. Reboot the computer and you should see the RAM test, hard Drive Identification and then the CDROM should start to boot. I can't be more specific about the steps because your post didn't include the model of the laptop. All of this assumes your CDROM is still in working order since HP laptops have a known issue with CDROM's going out for no reason. The hard way for dealing with this would be to get an encloser to put a hard drive in to make it portable and connect to another computer and do the partitioning and formatting of that new drive on the other computer and solve the problem that way.

When i start my pc,it displays operating system not found


Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is recognized in there. If it is then try restoring it with the recovery disks. If the error still comes up then that means the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. Also if the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS then that means the hard drive is still bad.

My husband's laptop shut down, and msg 'operating system not found' comes up on screen when turned back on....what should he do?


He needs to go into the BIOS to make sure that the hard drive is still being reocognized in there. If it is recognized then the operating system is corrupt and he'll need to wipe out the drive and reinstall the operating system and the drivers for his laptop.

If the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS then that means the hard drive is bad and the hard drive would need to be replaced.
