SOURCE: SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4: Hitachi-(S1)-ToshibLaptop

that will be expensive. i just went to microcenter and asked them, they said many hundreds of dollars just to look at it, then like 1600 for the cheapest recovery...

I would

1. stop using it immediately. (after an error like that, you may have only minutes of life left on it)
2. get a 25 dollar external enclosure to put the drive into. If it's IDE make sure you get an IDE enclosure, if SATA, get SATA compat. external enclosure.
3. get another computer, o rgo to a friends house, etc, and try to read your data on their computer after plugging in your hard drive inside the external enclosure.
4. if you can see it, rush like mad to copy the data thats important to your friends computer before the drive is 100% dead.

microcenter and similar stores have external hard drives at $129 dollars for a terabyte. BUY ONE! :-)

Good luck

PS: rumors go around that if you freeze the hard drive in your freezer for an hour, it helps get the data off, dont know if this is in fact true. Once the drive is dead, it's dead. You cant do much about it unless youre willing to part with a lot of money.

SOURCE: D610 DST Short Status Test Fail

It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

SOURCE: i get the error code 2000-0146 only when i run the f12 diagnostic

The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.

How to manage BIOHD-8 Error Code


Hi

If your drive is showing a SMART error I would consider replacing the drive as its showing the 1st signs of failing and if you don't have backups of any important data on there I would back it up now as when it failes you wont have any way of recovering your data

When i boot my system it display a message unable to read hard disk drive then when run diagnostic test it givee me an error message-BIOHD-8


It pretty much means that your hard drive is going/has gone bad. Get a new hard drive and some software Acronis or Partition Magic for example to make a copy of that hard drive and perhaps you'll be able to save all of you data.

I have an error code of BIOHD-8, what does this mean and can it be fixed?


BIOHD-8 is a SMART drive error code. It's issued when SMART thinks your drive is failing. Doing some research it seems that there have been issues with HP computers and this error code occurring but nobody seems to know why.
If you believe that the hard drive is not faulty access the BIOS and look for the option HDD SMART Enable (or similar) and disable it.to enter the BIOS during the boot process you will see for a short amount of time to press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key to enter set up(BIOS)

Do a reboot then get into the operating system and select the C: hard drive properties. On the tools page you will find a hard drive right click select properties tools place a tick in both boxes run it and it will tell you it cannot run as the drive is in use. It will then ask you if you wish to reschedule a test on reboot. Select that option and reboot the machine. This will report and fix and drive protocol errors that have occurred but it will NOT repair the drive if the mechanics are faulty. Replacement is the only way to fix that.


hope this helps

Disconnect the Floppy, CD/DVD and any other Drive you have connected and boot the machine. If the machine boots shut it down and connect the disconnected devices 1 at a time until you have it isolated. If the Computer doesn't boot and you still get the same fault then your hard drive has faulted try a different drive.

We have an hp pavilion with a BIOHD-B error...any suggestions?


BIOHD-B or 8 is Basic Input Output Hard Drive, this is a sign that your hardrive is on its way out, and you need to back up all of the contents as soon as possible.

The faults that cause this error are generally the drive electronics not reading and sending the data properly, or the phisical working of the hardrive not reading the data properly therefore not sending in correctly. The way to check for this is if you hear any slight clunking or clicking noises coming from the harddrive when in use, at the moment they could be quite quiet and hardly noticeable, but will progressively get worse.
My advise is to back up the drive and try a low level format, and see if that fixes the problem or buy a new Hard drive. You can download a low level format tool fron this link:
