Hi, I have an error message on my notebook laptop reading: 'windows detected a hard drive problem (repair or replace disk). Disk Failure Name: ST98823AS ATA, Device Volume C:\. How do I go about repairing...


Leila, repairing a hard drive or replavcing it in a laptop is difficult due the the number of screws and bits and pices one has to remove to get to it. I suggest you take it to a computer specialist that deals with the brand of laptop near you New disk varies depending on size but average about$160.00 and min 2 hrs labor @ $90 and hour. The decision is is it cheaper to upgrade than repair?

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Picked up a virus, cannot remove or reformat


Is the Virus on your PC or on USB Device

If on PC then Format the PC wit the Corresponding Operating System.

OR

If it is on a Drive or on USB Device right click on My Computer go to Manage -> Disk Management -> Permissions -> Allow All -> Apply -> ok -> then try formatting

It apllies same to all the drives as well

Corrupted hard disk cycle


Your harddisk has failed and needs to be replaced. you will have to take it to a service center or ship it to Sony for repair. This will usually cost 70ish USD for the service and whatever their goign rate for the drive.

your alternative is to search on how to replace the drive yourself and what drives are compatible with the PS3.

two drives are

and

I have taken a Seagate 5400.2 60GB hard disk out of a broken Sony PS3 and put it into a case to use as an external drive for my Dell laptop running Vista. The computer recognises thst the device is presnt...


You will have to "destroy" the data that is on the disk... If that is ok then:

1. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage" from the drop-down menu.
2. Select "Disk Management"
3. A graph of the disks in the computer will appear.
4. Go to "Full Screen" (maximize your window).
5. Find the Seagate disk (may be marked "Unknown").
6. If you are absolutely sure that this is the Seagate out of the Sony PS3 .. .then right-click on the graph that represents the Seagate and "Delete Partition" (The system will not allow you to delete your boot drive partition.
7. Once it has been deleted, you can "Create Partition" (choose "Primary" partition) and do not use a fast (quick) format.
8. You probably know the rest.... (Create drive, FAT32, etc.)

Hope this is what you want...

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
