Not seeing new hard disk or reading XP cd-rom


It can use any 31/2" IDE hard drive. 30 Gb should be OK
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive or the CD drive then the drives maybe faulty or the disk controller in the computer is faulty.

A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart" Error. Just installed new WD 320 HD, formatted, installed winxp home edition and on reboot, the error above showed up. What's up?


Wow. That's no good. I'm sorry that happened! The real culprit isn't your hard drive my friend: Its most likely your IDE controller. Any time you have a known good drive and you have read errors, something's likely up with your south bridge which handles your SATA/IDE I/O operations. You may also have garbage showing up where the name of the drive should be in Windows and the BIOS. That's a surefire way to tell, but isn't always the case. Like a Samsung drive showing up as, "SAMWUNG$#".

""THERE IS AN ERROR WHEN I START MY COMPUTER, IT TELLS ME PXE-E63 ERROR WHILE INITIALIZING THE NIC, PXE-MOF EXTITING INTEL PXE ROM, AND ADISK READ ERROR OCCURRED, HOW CAN I FIX IT""

Hello,

Disregard the PXE-E63 Errors. The only one to pay attention to is the "Disk read error occured". Some Acer models always give these errors but as far as I can tell the PXE errors are nothing to worry about and thus have never given me any issues in my career.

Reseat the Hard drive when the machine is switched off and power is unplugged and battery is disconnected.

If you can test the hard drive for bad sectors OR if it picks up in another machine by installing it into a external hard drive casing. This case can either be mini-IDE or SATA.

Also you could get a bootable hard drive tester and test the hard drive on your machine to work-around the above.

As a final suggestion, replace hard drive and send in original hard drive for data recovery if needed.

Disk read error alt+ctrl del restart


load optimal or fail save setting then check if it eliminates the problem if it didn't work. reinstall the ide cable of your hard disk check if it eliminates the problem if it also didn't work back up your hard drive for important file, delete and create hard disk file system, partition and reformat your hard drive if this also didnt work replace your hard disk.

Might be a damaged sector. Otherwise i would think you (by accident) created a seperate partition on your C:\ (? main) HD. The cause of damage can be many things, certain types of certain brands or more sensitive in how fast these sectors get damaged. But you can at least try to repair them with the disk repair utility in Win XP, called ChkDsk ("check disk"). However, what may end up happening is that ChkDsk will mark the sector as bad (instead of attempting to recover any information) and your hard drive will no longer 'hover' over top of that area of the drive, making it impossible to recover any data on the sector. Maybe try to google for (free) BETTER third party software for this first. So what caused it is hard to discover after it happened, but you can try to repair it.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways
