Question about Samsung HM060HI Hard Drive

1 Answer

Hi, Samsung HDD shuts down slowly.

I've got a Samsung HM060HI 60Gb HDD in my dell d620 and when I try to shut it down it's taking 10 min 10 seconds to switch off. Can you help?

I've tried regedit/local machine/system/control shortening waittokillservicetimeout value of 20000ms to 200ms without success. I've also used GPEDIT.MSC to check the Config/Windows/Security/Local/Security to ensure that clear virtual memory is disabled.

This is really confusing me and I'd really appreciate some help.

Dell lattitude d620 won't factory restore ?


Please go through the below step, you can able to do it.

1) Shut down the Dell Latitude D620 if it's currently powered on. Click "Start" in the left-hand corner of the screen to access Windows' shut down options. Alternatively, press and hold the Latitude's power button, located on the top edge of the laptop's keyboard.

2) Turn on the computer by pressing the laptop's power button.

3) Press and hold "F8" on the top of the laptop's keyboard immediately after turning the computer on. If the Windows logo appears on the screen, you're too late and must repeat Steps 1 through 3 again. If you pressed it in time, a list of text options will appear on the screen.

4) Use your keyboard's arrow keys to scroll down to "Repair Your Computer." Push the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

5) Choose a language from the next list and select "Next." If you've password-protected your laptop, you will be prompted to enter your user name and password at this time.

6) Press "Dell Factory Image Restore." A new window will appear. Click "Next" and select the option for reformatting the hard drive and restoring the factory condition of the laptop.

My D620 starts to boot up then shuts down suddenly

could it be that your battery is no longer holding a charge?
try powering it up with the power pack attached (and ensure the light on the power pack is indeed lit) - it also could be that the laptop is not being charged by the power pack.

When i go into the bios of my acer 5630 i cannot find the hdd does this mean my hdd has given up?

Unfortunately yes. Last hope attempt: disconnect it, boot the pc, shut it down , reconnect it and try again - sometimes this procedure wakes up a defective hdd long enough to recover your files. But in any case it's better to replace it.

The D620 is right now "stuck" trying to go into standby. I have a lot of open unsaved files which would crash on a forced reboot. Also, it is constantly trying to access the hard drive at the moment. Any...

1. Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. This will shut down the PC.
2. If you disagree with this then you will have to contact Dell Tech support.
3. If you are able to go into safe mode and then close the file that are opened then shut down properly with the "shut down" button an the power up again. You should be able to restore the PC.
4. If you have any USB device connected disconnect them after shut down. In the power up sequence the ports and hard drive and the keyboard etc are checked to see if they are enabled or if something is connected this will sometime on the C620 cause it to go into a mode not wanted.

Dell mini forced shut down, now runs slowly

go to start - accessories - system tools - system restore - choose a date when it was working fine, preferably the earliest date. then wait for it to shut down and restart. you will not lose any saved files or folders, you will only lose programs installed after the date you choose.
