Problem with Fujitsu MHT2080AH hard disk drive

Message when I power on my HP Pavilion dv1000:

SMART error forecast on hard disk0: FUJITSU MHT2080AH PL - (MP) ... Imminent error.

Ran chkdsk /f/r c: and although a few disk blocks were moved by this program, the drive passes without other errors. Can anything be done to cure the disk?

Thanks,

Nothing can be done that is as cost effective as buying a new drive. Use the drive as little as possible, back up your data before it dies completely.

A professional could rebuild it for a few hundred dollars if you have a particular attachment to this exact model. But I can't think of any reason one might choose this route rather than simply buying another drive.

What is the connection plug from Fujitsu mht2080ah to computer?


You can install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case.
Then you can connect it to the USB port on your computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, then you can copy the files off this hard disk to your computer.
By inserting the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter you can deleted unwanted files off the hard drive and use it for backups and data transfer from one computer to another computer.

I have a fujitsu mhu2100at, ca06499-b11000c1. my hp laptop quit working and gave this error : PXE-E61: media test failure PXE-M0F: exiting PXE ROM. i removed the hard drive and tried hooking it up to...


The PXE error is not from your harddrive. the computer has failed to reccognise the HDD and so moved to the next bootable option being network, the PXE error is telling you that it cannot boot from network
I would only replace the board on the hard disk with another (same model) if you realy need the data on there. it is possible that the drive is failing because the heads have locked and so replacing the board will not fix, but if you have access to an identical drive its worth a try.
if you dont realy need the data, replace with another compatible drive and reinstall.

Hi I have a Fujitsu Mobile MHV2120BH 120 GB SATA Hard Drive, I want to install XP home on it. But Ive been reading that I need Sata/raid drivers for the computer to see the drive. I have a HP Pavilion...


The SATA drivers will be on the XP disk. Just put the XP disk in your CD drive, partition the new disk and load the OS.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

My fujitsu mobile mht2060at pl hard drive does not boot


Hi,
If you are able to acess the hardware just touch the hard disk with your hand and see if you are able to feel the vibration of the disk running? If No then please check the power cable which enters the HDD. If its running it means power is fine. So remove he data cable and reconnect it again and check what happens. Let me know if you have doubts in finding the problem.
Thanks

My Fujitsu MHZ2080BH G2 Hard Drive Froze Up and when I rebooted it reported that the hard drive was not found. I ordered an exact replacement drive and tried to pirate the circuit board from the new drive...


With the new controller card attached to the old drive, try to attach the hard drive to another computer via a EIDE/SATA to USB adapter, this way the other computer will read the drive as an external. Now open up Administrator tools in the control panel and click on computer management, then click on disc management. All drives attached to the computer will show here, whether they are active or not. Now find your drive, it will probably show up in the lower column with a drive number but no letter. Right click in the square where it says drive is "offline" click on initialize drive, follow the prompts and click on what ever it suggests. If it goes through the drive is initialized, if it comes up and says "drive not ready", then it means the control card swap sis not work and the drive is a complete loss. Your only option at that point is data recovery in a "clean room" facility.

SMART failure predicted on hard disk 0:


There is a big problem with newer conponents and Win XP versions prior to SP2. Especially with newer motherboards.

You have to make a bootable SP2 disk if you don't already have one. To do this use the slipstream proceedure specified on the Ms website. Many other websites describe the process with easier language.

Slipstreaming is a common practice now. Essentially, you copy your original install disk to the c: drive then download SP2 to C: drive then download the slipstream utility from MS. Running the slipstream utility then inserts the proper drivers (ide and HD drivers too) into the licensed copy you have. You then create a bootable disk from the slipstreamed files you have.

This approach is resolving alot of blue STOP errors and SMART errors.

ALSO, you want to make sure you are installing any drivers provided by the MB manufacturer AND Drive maker.

Good Luck
