Unfortunately hard drives break. It could be a head that's broke or that it can't read the MBR. (Master Boot Record) If that's corrupted then it's a gonner. There are places where equipment is available to repair it but, if you've got your files backed up just get a new HDD and reload your Software. (Windows and files.)

SOURCE: My Computer doesn't recognize Ion 320 GB Harddrive

Well if its lighting up, then the drive is receiving power, or the enclosure atleast. Forget that case, extract the drive, and seek out something more reliable and more solid. Preferably an aluminum enclosure with no fan.

seek out Weibetech.

SOURCE: My Computer doesn't recognize Ion 320 GB Harddrive w/Tri select

This isn't a solution but might help...

I have the same drive... with mine it recognizes sometimes but usually freezes my computer when I try to write to the drive. I thought it was the actual hard drive, but that works fine when installed in my tower... I now notice that one of the small components, component L14, is actullay missing a corner!!!! Like it chipped off! I'm blaming that. It seems to be part of the usb/firewire section of the mainboard. I'd like to replace it... does anyone know what that component is?

Hi Sandysue, As I understand your problem, 1. The error could be caused by: memory, video, hardrive or drivers; 2. Windows by asking you to run CHKDSK /F has detected a possible problem with your harddrive; 3. It is possible that the reason you cannot go to DOS mode is because your harddrive is formatted in NTFS and not FAT332. There are a couple of ways on how to go about this but all would require that you have access to second PC: 1. Run a third party software (BartPE) that you will have to boot from your CD Drive or USB and run a disk checking utility; 2. Remove your hardrive and install it as a secondary master in the 2nd PC and run chkdsk or scandisk; 3. Remove your hardrive and install it in an external HD enclosure and connect using USB to the 2nd PC and run chkdsk or scandisk; 4. Remove your hardrive and install it either USB or as secondary master to the 2nd PC. Copy all your important files to the 2nd PC, and repartition/reformat. Reinstall to the eMachine and reinstall Windows. There is a possibility that even if you were able to run CHKDSK or Scandisk eventually your best bet would still be #4. If you have gained access to the inside of your eMachine PC, it would also be a good idea to remove/reinsert any cards and the memory stick(s). A little housekeeping would also be nice. I hope that this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up or if you need further information. Goodluck and kind regards.

Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.
