Go to start then run
type "chkdsk c: /f"
It will try to do a repair, but tell you that it cant do it because it cannot get an exclusive lock on the disk. It will ask if it can run on reboot. say "Y" then reboot the pc.
If that does not fix it then Go to http://www.grc.com and download Spinrite.
Run it on the disk. That should fix it.

    Slim ps2 disk read error


    I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

    Re: HDD replacement


    If you have replaced the HD - this drive will be completely blank.
    Your computer needs an operating system installed.
    If you got a system restore CD/DVD with your computer - this is a good time to insert it and follow the onscreen instructions.

    Alternatively if you have a windows install disk then this is a good time to install it.

    Its also likely that everything on the old hard disk has been lost.

    However - At a later date you could try and add it as a Slave disk to see if you can recover your documents etc once you have your machine up and running on the new disk.

    A disk read error


    Hi,

    The "clicking" and "disk read error" indicates a hard drive failure.  When the PC boots it can no longer read some files from or the entire HD.  The corrective measure would be to replace the HD and install your OS and programs. Alternately, you may try and reformat then re-install but then you would be operating with an unpredictable storage media and perhaps prolonging the inevitable.

    If your reason for Safe Mode is to be able to access your files for purposes of backup, the constant trying/on-off just might worsen the condition of the HD. You can still try recovering by installing the HD in question inside a 2.5 enclosure to USB and install it as a removable device in a 2nd PC where you can try recover files.

    Should you install a new HD and install the OS in your Gateway, you actually can use that to try and recover from the old HD. Recovery is 50/50.

    Good luck and kind regards.
