My daughter's laptop suddenly came up with the messege of repair/replace hard disk. What does this mean?


Either the Windows installation has become corrupted, in which case you can repair it using the Windows disk or the actual hard drive has failed/died.

Claim warranty support as soon as possible.

Take care!

My HP 4710s had a weird message that pops up after the logo screen. Then it says non disk or disk error strike any key to continue...I do that and the same message pops up...plz help.


the HP cannot boot up because it cannot find the hard disk to boot up from.
You could have a faulty hard drive or the hard drive needs re-seating.
If the HP still does not boot up after re-seating the hard drive go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard disk is detected. If not the most likely the hard disk is faulty.
To get the laptop working again. replace the hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk plus the HP Laptop's device drivers and your programs.

I am unable to instal windows server 2003 on HP Proliant ML150 G5 because it gives me message no hard drive found


Option 1 (HIGLY Recommended): HP servers should come with an install disk that prepares the windows installer for you. Boot from that disk,tell it your OS, and pop in the disk for the OS when prompted. It will come up fine and have all the HP monitoring agents installed.

Option 2: Load the driver the old fashioned way. Unless you have a floppy drive the standard "Press F6 to load drivers" trick won't work. If you do, then you'll need to put the RAID driver on the disk.

Option 3: Use an installation customizer like nLite to pre-add the RAID driver to the Windows 2003 installer.

Good luck.

Hi all, My hard disk suddenly stop working, when


Try going to the control panel and then the install new hardware. When it asks for you to search for driver don't let the system look for a driver. Go to manual setup(or install from a list). If that doesn't work, then go to the seagate website to see if they have a driver for your version of windows. If seagate has the driver, then download it, go to install hardware, run the wizard, and when it asks for you to install from a disk that came with the device, click that option and the go to the directory where you downloaded the driver and load the driver.

I have a macbook OS X, i boot up on windows xp then i notice that theres only 10% remaining on the harddisk intended to windows, then suddenly the blue color appear and says that i must shutdown the unit....


Your hard drive is corrupted and the OS needs to be re-installed on the hard drive. Re-install the OS using your discs, but first use disk 1 to go into disk utilities and select your hard drive, then click repair disk permissions. After that click on repair disk and see if that don't help. If that don't help then your next step is to re-install the OS, because somewhere the startup file got corrupted. If that don't work, then your SOL, which means your hard drive has given up the ghost and you need to install a new hard drive.

Windows Installer - Preparing To Install message keeps popping up


Try using the 'Windows Installer CleanUp Utility'. This utility helps resolve installation problems for programs that use Microsoft Windows Installer. If you use this utility, you may have to reinstall other programs. Caution is advised.

Use the following link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

You must be logged on to Windows with a user account that is a computer administrator to run Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.

When you use Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, you can perform the following functions:
  • Select one or more programs that were installed by Windows Installer from the Windows Installer CleanUp dialog box.

    To do this, select the programs that you want in the Installed Products list in the Windows Installer CleanUp dialog box. After you make this selection, the utility removes only Windows Installer configuration information that is related to those programs.

  • Remove all Windows Installer information associated with the selected programs. This includes the entries for the programs in the Add Or Remove Programs item in Control Panel. Be aware that only the Installer information for that particular program is removed, not the files.
If you use this utility to remove Windows Installer configuration information for your program and you plan to reinstall the program, you should reinstall the program in the same folder where you originally installed it. This prevents duplication of files on your hard disk or disks.

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.

My hard disk


the 7GB is probably the first partition from previous installation. You will need to delete all partitions on drive and then format the drive, that is if all is backed up. once that is done you can create a few "new" partitions and install Windoze to the first partition. make sure to make that one active and/or primary. the other partition you can use for Data.
