Question about Dell Inspiron 15 N5040 I3-380m 2.53ghz 4gb 500gb Dvdrw 15.6" Hdmi Win 7

1 Answer

Disk Issues Error Code: 2000-0142 Validation Code: 44668 Few days back my computer was attacked by a virus from which i successfully recovered and removed it from my system. But now after some days have passed, it has started causing problems and issues and the one which is most troubling is my hard drive issue. I tried to solve my problem from the Dell Support by entering the error and validation code. The issue is: My windows are not staring instead it takes me to the repair screen which continues to run for hours but never ends. Actually there's very important data in my hard drive but according to the Dell Support(website) I should change my Hard Disk ASAP. Now I want to ask you what should I do to get my data back and then change the hard drive because I could not enter into the Windows and always taken to the repair process automatically?

Take the drive out and attach it to another computer and see if you can read the files that are on it. Then you can get your data and format the drive and start over.

SOURCE: Reinstallation CD will not run

When trying to boot from a CD on a Dell system you should put the CD in the CD-ROM tray and reboot the computer. When the initial Dell splash screen appears, you should press F12 (not F2 for BIOS) for a boot menu. In that menu you want to choose the CD-ROM drive. If you have made changes in BIOS you may want to undo them and try this way instead.

SOURCE: Replace the factory hard drive in my sisters

If the system is older,you may be limited by the BIOS. Many old systems do not recognize a partition with Windows.
Have you run fdisk for the format and partition setup?
Did you check the BIOS at startup? Make sure it recognizes the drive in BIOS and sees the partition. Hit F2 on bootup.
If it sees the drive, use a boot disk and run fdisk. Check the parameters and then run the install again.

How do i fix a verbatim 53032 1 tb external hard drive to recover files? suddenly it turned to raw drive recognized by the pc but the blue light is on


Hello,
Computer external hard drive could become RAW file system due to a series of reasons, including virus attack, drive unformatted error, and drive corruption and more.
And no matte which one yours is, always remember not to format this RAW USB hard drive before you do take left drive data back with success.
Hence, from now on, stop writing this RAW drive and perform data recovery processes there to see whether all your original drive files are still recoverable.

First you should stop using the device where your lost video located. And ask the help of some thir-party software. Here I recommend you to have a try on Data Recovery, which enables you to recover lost video with ease. If you are using Windows, photo recovery can also fit your requirement.
