Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 40 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

7200.7 40GB failure

I left my computer on overnight, and in the morning I found out that it had BSODd. I do not recall the message, but now the BIOS does not recognize the drive, and nor can anything else. I tried connecting it to my laptop through the use of a USB/IDE adapter, but that did not work either. As is a common problem, I'm sure, this drive has important information, and any help in recovery would be very much appreciated.

So nothing works to connect to the drive have you tried using that drive as a slave to another? I had a drive with photos on it BSoD and i had to get that adapter to plug it into a PC that worked... once there you have to right click the permissions of the new drive and take ownership of the entire device. this will allow you to pull the files you need off of it.

What happend to the drive is you had an error occur on one of the main system sectors (boot sector) which is just bad luck.

Worse case scenario if your files are really really important there are plenty of places you can send it and they will be able to extract your data at a cost. For a fee they can recover data from drives that have been burnt. so you should be good.

Laptop failure


hi


never leave a system running unattended for long period of time without a battery back up (UPS), as low and high current spikes will cause damage to the circuitry of the computers mainboard.

Have you tried using the AC adapter to power up the computer ? if that works and the battery is dead, simply replace the battery. if the system is not powering up at all, then the issue is bad AC adapter or the mainboard is damaged from overload of current.

Message saying media test failure, exiting pXE ROM and operating system not found. Cannot get anywhere thereafter. can get into F12 and F2 at startup,


Sounds like your hard drive died. If hard drive is dead you wont be able to get into anything but the bios. Hold down the CTRL key when computer starts and dont let go and try to force it into going into bios for you.

I GOT THIS MESSAGE TODAY PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE WHEN I TRIED TO BOOT MY ACER ASPIRE 5630 THIS MORNING. IS THERE A QUICK FIX FOR THIS? EXITING BROADCOM PXE ROM OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND


It is trying to bbot up using network boot because it cannot find OS on the hard drive, you can turn off the network in the BIOS setup page, but more likely you have problem with the hard drive or the OS is corrupted.

Acer 5620z notebook will not boot up this morning getting message media test failure no operating system found.


The most-likely cause is the failure of your disk-drive.

A less-likely cause is that the "data" and "power" cables between the computer and the disk-drive are not transmitting signals.

Take the computer to a qualified technician; he/she should be able to remove the disk-drive, and test it in another system.

Good morning--my Comfort Aire dehumidifier will no longer run & is still under warranty. When I turn it on the red light just comes on.


May be power supply failure, faulty control panel or other problem. It may just need to be left unplugged overnight for reset.

PXE-E61 Media test Failure


hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
