Its the BIOS that checks the hard drive, if you don't want this message you can disable smart feature in bios itself, but i think its better if you replace your hard drive because it will crash

SOURCE: Seagate's DiscWizard, Extended Capacity Manager

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager lets your operating system support large size discs with MBR partition style, so then you are able to use the space beyond 2 TB: this free space will be recognized as a separate disc, and will be accessible by your operating systems and applications as if it was a regular physical hard disc.

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager wizard will display all hard discs larger than 2 TB (unallocated or with MBR partition style). You can see, which disc space is recognized and allocated by Windows - this space is called Native Capacity in the wizard.

The space beyond 2 TB is displayed as Extended Capacity Zone. You can enable Extended Capacity Discs, and once it is done, this space will be visible by the operating system and ready for disc management operations.

Click Allocate space to see the possible disc space allocation in the next step.

After clicking Apply changes now button, the Extended Capacity Discs will be emulated on your physical disc. In case your physical disc is larger than 4 TB and the host operating system does not support a GPT partition layout, there will be several Extended Capacity Discs.

Note these Extended Capacity Discs are not bootable, and most properties will be the same as a physical disc's.

After allocating the space, you may temporary switch off Extended Capacity Discs by clicking the corresponding option. This will make Extended Capacity Discs invisible for Windows Disc Management tools, though the disc space will remain allocated.

To disable Extended Capacity Discs, click Remove partitions from Extended Capacity Zone and then click Apply changes now button in the next step: these discs will be removed from your system, and as a result - the disc space beyond 2 TB will become inaccessible

Hello my name is Devin, I have a wd-65735 model and I just purchased it off of a friend and braught it home. He had told us from laying it on its side while bringing it home it said in the guide to let it...


Caveat: I am not a tech, I just read through the Mitsubishi service manual, and have worked on different model TV that I have owned (older model of this one) I am a little unclear on the second set of lights but I think the combination *may* indicate that the lamp fan is not starting (there are two fans though), if the blinking red is the status light. It is possible the connector for that got jostled during the trip, something fell into it from being on the side (wire or loose something) and is blocking it from spinning now, or a module unseated a bit,and is loose, or the lamp is no longer seated correctly (though the lamp light does not appear to be on) or none of these. :) These are just guesses.
Be careful if you open it up, due to potential for shock. Wear gloves, and power it down first (then unplug). Reseat any fan connectors.

Google: I used "wd-65735 status lights" to find a service pdf , it's for V39 chassis (several models)

From page 24 of Service Manual :

3. Error Code Operational Check Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down" and not have been switched Off, to perform the Error Code Opera- tional Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to "12" No Error.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT" and "MENU" buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds, activates the Error Code Mode. The "TIMER LED" flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem has occurred since the last Initialization.

BIOS error, System Failure, Boot failure? ? Lets FIX it.


I guess everyone working on a computer is familiar with the word BIOS and what exactly it is? Still let me tell that BIOS is intelligent software that enables the system to start. I need not to mention that system here refers to computer. Bios facilitate the booting of a system without human intervention. BIOS is a program that is installed in a hardware chip known as ROM chip.

This single word matters a lot to most of the users who face various problems when their system failed to start normally or make some unusual activities. Each time I visit any technical forum I see a lot many users posting their problem regarding BIOS. I researched on internet about BIOS errors and from my knowledge and experience I am posting this piece of help for those who find themselves helpless in getting a solution to BIOS problems.

Sometimes BIOS itself provide a troubleshooting to most of the problems. When you power ON your system it give beep sound. Checkout some beep codes
1 short Beep indicates System is OK (Acceptance Beep)
Continue long Beep tells RAM Problem
1Long 3 Short Beep confirms RAM Problem
2/3/4 short Beep --its time to Check the RAM & Video Card

By now most of you have found some clue about the problems you are facing. Now learn about POST faults
1) K/B Error/ NO Keyboard present
· Check the loose cable connector
· Cable may be bad (Keyboard)
· K/B itself may be bad
· Check the physical condition of K/B connector on M/B
· If all these are ok & problem is still processed
· Than replace the keyboard port

2) Floppy disk drive Fail
· loose data & power connector of FDD
· Data cable may be bad (FDD)
· Load the CMOS defaults
· Floppy disk drive itself may be bad

3) CMOS Checksum error
· CMOS battery has gone bad replace it. (Weak)
· Check the CMOS jumper it may set on clear
· If the entire ok than check the CMOS battery jack, it may be bad

4) Invalid System Disk, Insert System Disk & Press enter when ready/ NTLDR is Missing
· Check the root directory; it may be formatted or missing bootable files.
· Repair the Windows or Reinstall the operating system.

5) Disk Boot failure, Insert System Disk & Press enter when ready
· Hard Disk check in POST Detected or not
· If not Detected Check the power cable
· Check the Master/Slave jumper setting.
· Also check BIOS setting

6) Computer gives message: Your computer has a serious problem
Back up your data & replace your Hard Disk
This error message is displayed due to the SMART option. This scans the HDD for errors, if it detect the errors than it show the above message. Follow the error message & back up your data on to another drive.

I tried to explain most of the problems along with their solutions. There could be a lot more solutions for the problems. Make your own search and try to fix BIOS problems at your own home.
Forward this to all those who need help!!

I have a dell 580 inspiron thats does not turn on..before it turned on but now it just beeps and doesnt follow through with start up.......i had a blue screeen before this ....thanxx


Blue screen could be the windows files getting corrupted due to a virus, file fragmentation or a failing hard drive, overheating cpu or failing memory.
The beeping usually indicates a hardware failure, first open the computer and see it the CPU heatsink is in place properly seated and fan is connected and spinning.
Second with the PC off, remove and reinsert the memory.
These are just a few things to check , most likely the hard drive has failed and needs replacing.
pressing certain keys during bootup can sometimes isolate the issue, but only if the monitor still shows a picture
I hope this helps
Thanks

Boot Disc Failure


The disk boot failure could come from a number of sources. I can offer some solutions one or a combination of which will hopefully correct the error.

First, check your BIOS settings to see if S.M.A.R.T drive reporting is enabled. To enter into BIOS please tap F2 key at start up. In the BIOS screen, if the S.M.A.R.T drive is enabled, disable it and give it a test run of 2-3 days under a regular rebooting cycle to see if the error persists. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology)is a somewhat outdated standard developed as an "early warning" system to detect hard disk issues. If your desktop is newer, it may not even be available as an option as it is not widely used these days. The SMART technology while useful under certain circumstances had an extremely wide margin of error and would throw errors on boot occasionally when there would be nothing from either a physical or configuration standpoint failing or pending failing in the drive.

While we're in the BIOS, I'd recommend that you ensure that it is recognizing the drive correctly on each startup. The easiest way to ensure this is to reset your BIOS default settings. While on the BIOS screen, look for an indication either along the top or bottom designated by one of the function keys (I believe it used to be F10 to restore defaults). Be sure to save your changes and exit. Again, where you did not get the error every time, you may need to monitor it's progress to see if the error returns.

Second, physically check all cabling. A loose or in some cases failing IDE cable (assuming it is an IDE and not SATA connection) will produce these errors in the Pavilion line (and most others I would well imagine). Power everything completely down, remove the side of the case to give access to the drives and start with reseating the cable both at the drive end and the controller (where they plug into the motherboard) ends. Ultimately, if you were to pick up (or could somehow borrow) a different IDE cable to test for a short time it may also call out a failed or failing cable as well.

Third, we can't overlook the possibility of a failed drive itself. Formatting and/or recovering the drive will most likely not correct an error of this type. If any of the steps resemble those suggested above and have already been attempted, the issue may well point to the disk itself. How old is your system out of curiosity. I realize this option is quite a stretch given the timeframe.

Keeping with issues with the drive itself however, if all steps listed above don't correct the errors, there could be a strong possibility of a failing disk. Since you say it will boot on occasion the failure may not be severe enough at this stage to completely fail, but a total inability to boot may be looming on the horizon.

I hope one or a combination of the recommendations I've made correct your issue. Keep me posted if possible.

Thanks and Regards,
Mithun

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).

Smart drive failed during diagnostic test


Bad sectors are starting to show up on the hard drive. Thats what the smartdrive program is for, its checks the hard drive to see if there are any bad spots or potential bad spots on the platter inside of the hard drive.

It will definitely have to be replaced. Replace it with a new one and if you can't then at least replace it with a known good used one.

your system can not detect your primary hard disk which host the operating systems,so you check the data cable to the hard drive and the power supply to the hard drive for supply
