Hi, your query, "is there a way to fix it?" if you intend to use if again normally, afraid no way; if you want to recover/retrieve important data/files, probably: 1. seal the drive in a sandwhich ziplock plastic bag, leave it in your freezer overnight, install as a secondary master in another PC, autodetect in CMOS, if detected, boot to your OS, copy whatever you can real quick, soon as it reaches ambient temp chances are it will no longer be readable again; or 2. assuming it is an electronic problem, using a torx driver remove the pcb, get hold of another hd of same brand & model, borrow the good PCB and tempo use it, again install as secondary master in another PC. if no available 2nd HD at hand, install and while in CMOS autodetect HD, feel around the PCB components and determine which heats up faster than the others, spray it with a contact cleaner, if detected continue to your OS to back it up, continue spraying to maintain lower temp; 3. assuming mechanical problem (though highly unlikely) lightly tap with a small rubber mallet (rubber coated handle of a side cutter will do) bottom of drive and install; 4. assuming an electrical connection problem, reheat the 4 power terminals at the bottom (+, gnd, gnd & +) and/or remove the pcb and check/clean contacts at the back of the PCB and its mate, 2 sets; 5. assuming you can do component level soldering and can use a VOM, check surface mounted fuses on PCB near power connector. All of the above are last resort and are not guaranteed to revive your HD. Most require that you run your unit open with possible risk to electrical shock. If you are not comfortable, it would probably be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified service professional. Sometimes it work, sometimes not, hope it be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Laptop not working. says disk read error occurred. tried ctrl+alt+delete but saus phoenix secure core (tm) set up itility and enter pass word. I dont know the psss word.


What you have seems top be one of two issues, plus the password problem. Either the hard drive has malfunctioned in the laptop and the OS cannot read the disk to boot up, or possibly the BIOS/CMOS has "forgotten" where the boot device is. This can happen if there is a low CMOS battery event. In either case the laptop will revert to the BIOS/CMOS to allow the user to check settings and determine if the hard drive is being detected by the system. Unfortunately, it appears that someone has placed a BIOS password on your machine. These are not easy to get around. The only sure way to remove it is to disconnect the power cord, remove the battery, access the interior of the laptop, and remove (or unplug) the CMOS battery. Once you have done that, press and release the POWER ON button several times. This will discharge all power in the CMOS circuit and the CMOS will reset to factory defaults (no password). Then plug in or reinsert the CMOS battery, close the case, replace the battery and plug in the device and restart the system. You should then be able to access the CMOS. If the CMOS detects the hard drive on the main page, check the boot device and boot sequence menus to be sure that the HDD is the first device for bootup. If the HDD is not detected, or if the HDD is detected and all settings are correct and you still cannot boot to the drive due to the read error, you may need to replace the hard drive. If you have the recovery disc or an original OS install disk, you may be able to boot to it and attempt a repair install, where the system will try to fix whatever happened to the OS. If there is simply a corrupt file, the repair install may fix the issue, If the error in a physical one in the system area of the hard drive, you may be out of luck.

My new Seagate Barracuda 7200 does not


Hi Simlei.
If its a modern, fairly new drive, it should have built-in firmware, without a need for extra drivers.
If you OS is old the OS itself may not be recognizing the drive's 'language', especially if the bus-width differs, ie 16/32/64bit.
As 1 TB is quite recent on SSD's, I guess its new.
My 1 TB Toshiba just plugs into USB and Win Explorer detects it as a storage drive.
Regards, Clive.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB stop working, it would not work properly, keeps freeze up


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart then
once you have your computer running try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

How To Fix This Error

Error Message:
Stop Error 0x0000007A (Kernel data inpage error) Translation:
This occurs due to a memory error from a faulty hardware device or virus. Solution:
If your system freezes during Operating System installation, make a note where the installation stopped. Often, you can narrow down your problem by knowing when the freeze occurs.

Frequently, installation freezes are caused by incorrect settings in the CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor). The CMOS stores special configuration settings for your computer’s hardware and is used by the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) when your machine boots. Your motherboard or system should have come with a manual that describes the CMOS settings. If you don’t have a manual, download one from your manufacturer’s Web page. To change the CMOS settings, press the keys as shown in your manual or on your PC’s startup screen (often DELETE, ESC, CTRL-ESC, or CTRL-ALT-ESC) immediately after you boot your computer. If you change any of the CMOS settings, write down your changes and keep them in a safe place. Then you can refer to the settings if you need to change them back or redo them if you reinstall or upgrade to a new version of Windows later on.

Incorrect CMOS settings for system cache memory and RAM may confuse the Windows installer and freeze the system. If your system freezes during setup, try disabling the system cache memory. If you are able to install the system after your CMOS changes, then you fixed the problem. If this doesn’t work, then try adding a wait state to (or slowing down the timing on) your RAM. (Wait states are periods where the CPU pauses while waiting for data from slower components.) Adding a wait state causes the computer to address the memory less quickly and often fixes unexpected freezing problems, black screens, or unprovoked reboots. After Windows is fully installed, use the new system for a while to make sure it is stable. Then, restart the system and change the CMOS settings back. If the system remains stable, keep the settings; otherwise return to the stable settings permanently.

Bad RAM chips or a boot sector virus can cause inexplicable freezes during installation. If you suspect your memory might be the trouble and you have extra RAM chips around, try the installation with the other chips instead. If you think you have a boot sector virus on your hard drive, then use a bootable CD-ROM or diskette to check and clean your hard drive using programs such as Norton AntiVirus (http://www.symantec.com) or McAfee VirusScan (http://www.mcafee.com).
