MAXTOR 4D040H2 HARD DRIVE PROBLEM

Hi

I have a Packard Bell imedia 5109 pc. Unfortunately, when I start up the computer it constantly reboots over and over again. It will finally work maybe after about 12 or so times rebooting. Do you think I may need to replace the hard drive.

kind regards

Cathy

    recover all your important files first... hard to say at the moment if it's the hard drive or the operating system but back up the files you want to keep first

SOURCE: maxtor external hard drive is not accessable

- Do you hear any beep sound when you plug in the USB drive into the laptop? - You can also try a different USB cable - Try connecting the hard drive to a different computer and see if it works All those steps will help you determine where the issue is. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck

It is in my experience with hard drives used in external USB enclosures - the jumpers are not nessessery.

If you did in fact change the partioning structure then the only recourse is to send the drive to a data recovery center. If the drive is running they should be able to recover the data.

SOURCE: hard drive dropped, now not working

The beeping/clicking sound usually means your hard drive isnt far from "death."
You should be backing up all your data and yes, you can find people who get info back from hard drives, but this is very expensive.

This thing is old. Just buy a new computer for cheap. If you upgrade the motherboard and CPU you will have to upgrade the HDD, the memory any video card you have and possibly the CD/DVD player. New motherboard will require newer of all the components I listed. So essentially buy a new computer it will be cheaper.

I have a Packard Bell Imedia desktop not sure of the model. It was working fine until recently, I switched on my pc and after the boot screen "NTLDR is missing Alt Ctrl Del" message appeared....


Remove the hard disk and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will detect the hard drive as an external storage device, then you can open the various folders and files to copy your files to this computer or burn your data to a CD/DVD disc or USB flash drive.
Return you hard disk back to your Packard Bell so you can reinstall Windows.

Packard bell imedia alt-col2 just keeps beeping on and off


Find out what's making the noise first. It's either your fan or your hard drive. Check to make sure the noise your're hearing isn't your fan cutting into one of your wiring harnesses. That could be why you have the video problems. If it's your hard drive making the noise, that means it's on it's way out and you should immediately back up your files on disk and replace the drive before you lose everything.
