If you are running on windows xp, you can probably save your disk and files. you'll have to reboot the computer, inserting a copy of the windows xp cd in the cd drive to boot from. afterwhich, you will select repair for DOS mode and select the windows directory you want to fix you have to type "fixboot" to fix the boot sector of the disk then, chkdsk to recover and repair the disk and finally type "fixmbr" to fix the master boot sector of your disk. that's it.

Go to www.gillware.com They can get files off damaged hard drives. If they can't recover your data, you don't pay anything. When you fill the form out, check "I was referred by an affiliate." And enter code 10869.

It gets black as though it is working properly then it stops functioning saying E001


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key 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
once you have your computer running
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
if this fails

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your hard drive from the motherboard or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Either the HDD controller is bad or the HDDs you used have bad sectors.HDD regenerator software alot of times will correct the bad sectors and then the OS will install correctly and function smoothly.

Keep getting burning error


Make sure your burn speed is set to match the maximum or lower speed for your burner and media being used. Close all other unused programs so there is less interaction with the hard drive during the burning session. Run disk defragmenter (Click: Start/All Programs/Accessories/Disk Defragmenter) and see if your hard drive could use defragmenting.

Looking at the reviews of this product reveal it to be a less than stellar piece of hardware.

My hard drive suddebly crash!!help


Why Disk Fragments a problem?

Any storage action on the magnetic disk like creating, deleting, moving, updating and copying files will lead to fragmentation and consequent performance loss. As time goes by, this accumulation of fragments on your hard disk becomes bigger and bigger. As the hard disk reads and merges these separate fragments every time you open a file, they will eventually cause problems such as system slowdowns, PC crashes, slow startup and shutdown, and will even shorten the life span of your hard drive. That is why defragmentation is so important for your entire computer system.



Advanced Defrag – The better and easier defrag solution!

You may find various defrag programs in the market, they may look the same, but many of them lack of ability to
effectively defrag all the MFT (Master File Table), they will automatically skip certain system files with extensions
such as DLL, INI, COM etc during the defragment thus left remnant fragments after each defragment action, it can
also easily get halted while defragging which is very user-unfriendly.


Advanced Defrag rectified all the cons above from these defragmenters, and the efficiency is even better. Its advanced
defragment arithmetic not only enables you to fast defrag, but also defrag completely and thoroughly. If you would
like to give your PC hard disk a completely care and experience the most efficient defrag technology, Advanced
Defrag is the perfect choice for you.



How it works?

Your hard disk controls a magnetic head which searches the areas where the parts of the required file are located,
reads the data and transfers these fragments to the disk cache or EMS memory. The time this takes is called the
average seek time. The average seek time of most hard drives is less than 9.5 millisecond. The Advanced Defrag
program is able to collect the various fragments of each file and store them very quickly into contiguous space on
the hard disk which greatly reduces the seek time of the magnetic head. Better file reading and writing speed is
provided as a result. It does make a difference if you have got used to work and play with a fast and smooth system.
It also helps to prevent premature hard drive problems and retrieve the data in the event of a drive crash.

UNABLE TO BOOT DELL D600 - FAILURE TO DETECT HARD DISK


If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.

Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

232-A communication failure has occurred between the two machines.
327-*Reattempt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.
356-The remote user has pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be aborted.
442-An error occurred during transmission after one or more partial pages had been sent. The transmitting machine was unable to restart the control channel (handshaking) before sending more data. This error typically occurs when the receiving fax disconnects after receiving part of a page but can also occur if the receiving fax is using a fax format that is incompatible with the HP fax machine (usually during color faxing).

That drive is not suitable for pro-tools. Look for something that has the Oxford 911 or 924 chipset. HFS is the format. Did you format that drive after you bought it? Are you using both windows and os X with either boot camp or parallels?
