SOURCE: 1781 disk 1 failure

It could be the HD failing, the onboard controller failing (meaning the motherboard, or more importantly the laptop is toast), or it might simply be that the HD connection to the controller just needs to be reseated. The first thing to try is the HD test built into the BIOS. It should give a clearer idea of what is actually happening to the LT.

SOURCE: New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD

Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.

Yes you have to delete the partitions making one large drive and then format it in NTFS as XP is more secure in this file system and utilizes the space better.

SOURCE: I hit F8, here is the new error message

If this is all you are seeing, then this is not an error. What is happening here is that your computer is loading Safe Mode. This is a way to load Windows operating system without any extra software or programs, using the most basic drivers and software to load. There are a lot of benefits to accessing this mode, especially if you installed a program that stops you from getting into Normal Mode, or you have a virus that does the same. It makes it easy to troubleshoot. Here is a link to a website with a little more info:

If you load your computer normally by not pressing any keys, then you should be fine.

If you have a windows install disk, then download active kill disk.

You need to erase the hard drive the right way, you don\'t format from NTFS to NTFS to erase a HDD.

Here is a free eraser, but you need to burn it to a **** and boot to it so it runs in DOS.

You can also go to Western digital and use the tools for HDD to erase.
Once the HDD is erased, your clear CMOS, reset the setting in the BIOS such as boot order, you should be able to reinstall windows and install all the correct drivers.

Cannot format portable hdd

Step 1:
When you connect an external hard drive or USB flash drive to your PC computer, the drive should appear in the "Computer" window. However, if the data on the drive is corrupted, you may receive an error saying that the disk is not accessible. In order to get the removable disk working again, you will need to boot up your computer using the Windows installation disk and then format the corrupted drive.
Connect the removable disk to your computer. Insert the Windows installation disk into your optical drive and reboot the system. Press any key on the keyboard when you see the prompt asking if you want to boot to the CD. Press "Next" and then click on the "I accept the license terms" button. Click "Custom" when the program asks you what type of installation you want to perform. Click on the "Drive options (advanced)" button. The next window will display a list of all the hard drives connected to your computer. The removable disk will appear, even if its data is inaccessible. Highlight the removable disk that you want to format and then choose the "NTFS" option. Click "OK" to clear the data and format the hard drive.

I had backed up my entire laptop onto my simpletech external hard drive, and then had to have my computer whiped clean. When this happened, I also installed a new version of windows (Vista to windows 7)....

Does the external drive work correctly when connected to any other computer?
If not, then it has "died".
It might be possible to open the SimpleDrive case, extract the disk-drive,
and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some computer, to see if the "bare" disk-drive can be read.

After the welcome massage show me my desktop without its apps like "my computer or start.its just desktop picture after a prodouct error what i have to do?!?

Caused sometimes by the icon cache allocation needing rebuilding (the portion of the hdd that stores information on the icons). in this case however, I think its a failed installation or windows upgrade / service pack that is causing the problem.

It may also be virus related

In this order, try the following:
  • Reboot and try to boot to safe mode (f8), if you can access the desktop then, right click on my computer and schedule a disk check, reboot and let it repair
  • If this does not work, boot from you installation CD, let it find the previous install of windows and allow it to repair it, reboot and re-install service packs 2 and 3 from the Microsoft website
  • If this fails to work, you then need to format your hard drive and do a full re-install.. better to get another hard drive and install to that. That way, you can retrieve your data later from the old hard drive if you connect it as a slave.
I'd also check the old hard drive for viruses

My laptop is freezing up when I plug my external drive into the usb slot why is that happening?

Try the following steps:

When an external hard drive no longer functions correctly, you can try this method of repair. Lees eerst het gehele stappenplan door zodat je weet wat je moet doen. Please read through the entire road map so you know what to do.

1. Zorg dat het apparaat aangesloten is op je PC en dat hij aan staat zodat Windows hem herkent. 1. Ensure that the device connected to your PC and that he is so Windows will recognize him.
De harde schijf heeft van Windows een stationsletter toegewezen gekregen. The hard disk has a Windows drive letter assigned. Deze kun je opzoeken bij 'deze computer'. This lets you search for 'computer'. Onthoud deze letter. Remember that letter.

2. Ga naar start en doe het volgende: 2. Go to start and do the following:
Voor Windows XP en eerder: klik op Uitvoeren en typ de volgende tekst: cmd . For Windows XP and earlier: click on Run and type the following text: cmd. Druk daarna op enter of OK. Then press Enter or OK.
Voor Windows Vista: klik in het zoek veld en typ cmd . For Windows Vista, click in the search field and type cmd. Druk daarna op enter. Then press enter.


3. Typ nu in het command-prompt scherm de volgende tekst: 3. Now type in the command prompt window the following:
chkdsk #: /R chkdsk #: / R
Waar # staat vul je de stationsletter van je harde schijf in. Where # is fill the drive letter of your hard disk. Druk hierna op enter. Press enter.

4. Heb geduld! Afhankelijk van de grootte van je harde schijf, het aantal bestanden op de schijf en de snelheid van je PC kan het scannen op fouten een flinke tijd duren. 4. Be patient! Depending on the size of your hard disk, the number of files on the disk and the speed of your PC can scan for errors a considerable while.
Het kan zijn dat je in de tussentijd een lading tekst langs ziet rollen, hier volg je op een gegeven moment waarschijnlijk niks meer van maar dit hoort. It may be that in the meantime a load text will roll along, here follow at some point but probably nothing more to hear this.

5. Als het scannen is voltooid krijg je dit te zien. 5. When the scan is complete you will see this. Je harde schijf zou nu weer klaar voor gebruik moeten zijn! Your hard disk should now be ready to use!


Take Care :-)

I upgraded my hp pavilion zd8000 to 2GB of ram. When I try to load windows XP, I get a can not format disk error. I removed 1 GB of memory and added 250 K in it?s place and everything installs and runs OK....

what service pack are you running ? if you have service pack 3 installed you can not reinstall the OS period , you'll have
to remove the service pack 3 and go back to service pack 2
ram and the HDD don't have any connection with the OS
you can try switching out the ram to another computer for
testing and for checking the DIMM slots on your computer
if its a notebook there will be only 2 slots if its a PC you may
have 4 check your manual for 1234 configuration they never
go as 1234 its usually 1324 , windows XP 32 bit edition will only
hold 3072 MB of Ram while the 64 bit edition will hold up to 8
gigabytes .

My Hard Drive is 250 GB but I only see 137GB

Windows xp has a max Hard drive limit of 137GB, so what you see is totally right.
Windows XP did not support 48-bit LBA for ATAPI disk drives, which is what larger drives needs.
The service packs do address the problem but you need to have a copy of windows xp which includes at least service pack 1 on the installation.
The problem is when you install from your original disk, it doesn't include the service packs, so by the time you have got the system up and running the hard disk space has already been allocated.

Bios update wont help
controller card won't help either

Possible solutions:
If you can get hold of a new version of XP which includes at least service pack 1, you can re-install with this disk and it should find all your hard disk space
You can do what is called 'slipstreaming', this is when you burn the original XP disk and the service packs together on one disk, but it does take a bit of working out.

here are a few links which may help you more:

hope this al least sheds a little light on the problem

Computer won't load Windows

1. What the motherboard you had been using
2. Whats the HDD

Check that your motherboard supports the higher HDD
Upto 80GB HDD Windows can load the XP with servicepack 1
But after 80GB HDD supports the WIN XP with service pack 2 CD only.  Try to install with the winxp having above sp1.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!
