Scandisk should at least temporarily repair the bad clusters. If bad clusters keep showing up, it's usually a sign that the drive is failing. Don't trust it for important data!

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

OK the only shot you got is to geta USB to SATA/IDE converter dongle, connect to another PC's USB port. Hopefully, you will be able to read it. Otherwise still plugged in you may be able to use recovery software and get you DATA back. Recover my files is one,

Seagate barracuda 500Gb USB External drive

I have also experienced similar problem and found out that the problem is with the harddisk. It may have bad sectors which cannot be rectified. If your harddisk is older than 3 years then probablity for this this kind of problem is high. Better claim the warranty for your harddisk if its life is within 3 years as segate HDDs were given 3 years warranty.
I hope this is helpful to you

Hello !
You have said that you have done installation and Harddisk are not recognised this is a indication of damaged Harddisk ie its registry is bad or its not working .
I recomend a new Harddisk then you will able to use your laptop
Before you change the harddisk you should check the IDE cables by swapping them coz sometimes they could be faulty, connect new cable to the harddisk then on it try installation again .

Good luck

1 logical harddisk degraded, RAID Poweredge

Revert back to original configuration of hdd in your RAID setup. Boot to SCIS BIOS and double check functionality of hard drives. The error is probably telling you that Disk1 is degraded because disk 0 is failing and you removed the wrong hard drive.

My Hp Pavillion laptop dv2214tu doesnot boot beyond the HP INVENT logo page. I tried performing the Primary Hard Disk check as stated on the HP Support site but its not happening.I also reseated the RAM...

Unscrew your Laptop HardDrive bay and remove your harddisk first, then try to boot your system wthout the Harddisk inside. If it Boots past the HP Invent Logo Page, then your harddisk is the one that is faulty, if still doesnt, get another good, working RAM, apart from the one in your system, and use it to test your laptop...making sure that the harddisk is still not inside...then if it boots insert your Harddisk back with the new RAM, and restart your system.
If in the first case it boots (i.e wihout the harddisk inside)...then it means your harddrive is faulty, just retrieve your file on it and get a new one.
If in the second case it works (i.e with a new external RAM) then just change your RAM instead.

Memory full due to photos in wrong drive

Hi! It seems that your out of harddisk space. That's why your computer memory also maxed out because your computer memory gets virtual space in your harddisk. Try to free up your harddisk or delete the unwanted files. GOOD LUCK

My computer didn't recognize my harddis

Ok, the data may not be lost.
Need info:

- what kind of HD
- what operating system you use; windows?
- what kind of HD, is it a SATA drive?
- When you boot, (windows) do you see the drive (the faulty one) note the drive make and model number
- is this the BOOT drive or you just use it for data?

then due to over voltage in the external ports the harddisk cable might have got burnt or may be where you connect the cable to the harddisk there in the circuit board the pins might have got touched with one another and it may have got short circuited and it might have got burnt away ...

i think your harddisk will be under warranty still as it is new one so just make use of warranty and get the harddisk replaced from where you purchased ...

if you dont have the warranty then the harddisk is dead you cant make it work by anyway even if you contact the technician too he cant help because harddisks cant be repaired once it is removed it is gone ...

i am sure that your harddisk will be under warranty if you have buyed the new one ...
