Setup your operating system thru repair, how? install your winxp by pressing the repair instead of INSTALL NEW FRESH WINXP. in this way you can recover the corrupted parts of the operating system. don not reformat. i hope that this will help you and i am expecting a positive response from you.

My Hp compaq PC showing problem about HDD - Disk Read Error . But This HDD was run very good to another PC ?

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty Make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty. Computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error. Even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail. b> 1: Download a disk read error repair tool,install this error repair tool.

I have a Iomega LPHD120-U, it was working fine but in the middle of a program a msg saying content lost popped up and since then the hadr drive doesnt open up. on connection it the green light appears for...

You might try opening it up and seeing if you can pull the HDD and put it in your PC as an auxiliary drive. If it works, the interface or power supply was bad.

If it's intermittent, get all the data off it ASAP, because you'll probably not going to get much use out of it.

Drive is not ready to be read ?Error Check/device/harddisk1/DR7 ?

if you external hdd do not show on other computers, usually it meant that power supply on these casings die... but in this particular case it is possible that power supplied by usb port is insufficient to support data transfer. connect recommended power supply (on the back of this particular model you have usb plug and power plug, power supply is/was sold separately) usually hdd inside is still fine and retain data.

if this did not solve your problem, i would suggest purchase little powered universal hdd craddle, they cost about $15 to $25, remove, hdd from casing and connect to the craddle. data should be then accessible directly from your usb port.

as long as hdd is turning, data is accessible and recoverable, even if disk was wiped off.

Computer suddenly shut down and won't restart

This type of shutdown problem occurs mainly due to following few reasons, 1) SMPS problem 2) RAM failure 3) Over heated mother board chip(s) or seldom over heated CPU 4) Virus or worm problem or OS problem. 5) Over heated power cords
Do the following steps one by one (to detect the exact source of problem) First replace the CMOS battery, change SMPS, check power cord, run the PC directly (without UPS), remove the data cable from hdd. if it runs well then set the data cable with hdd, if it does not work then definitely there is mother board/cpu problem. And if it creates same problem after fitting the data cable - change the hdd or format hdd and reinstall os. your problem would be solved.

No main menu, just wavy lines with sony entertainment

This is a hard reset of the system, used when there is a catastrophic error etc. I have trawled these kind of sights and the main concensus is to ensure you have a back up of all important data. I experienced the same issue but the method above was advised by my games shop.

Ps3 update 2.5

This is a major problem caused by this update, some wont read discs, other wont load the menus. Consult the Sony website for updates or solutions but a popular solution is to enter recovery mode on the ps3, which restarts ps3 totally but formats the ps3, losing data. If you think this is viable, i have linked to the process but here it is:

Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear dual beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps remove finger power button
You will be asked to plug in your controller and press the ps button
This will enter recovery menu, which is:

Recovery menu
- restart system
- restore default settings
- restore file system
- rebuild database
- restore ps3
- system update

Each setting does a different function, consult the manual or PS3 site for consequences but be warned: YOU RISK LOSING ALL DATA IF YOU DO THIS. BACK IT UP. This is not a proven fix for this issue as it is the update which seems to have totalled many PS3's but has proven effective and worked when my discs stuck on title screens, i selected first restart system, then restore default settings the 2 times i have done it and it fixed the ps3 but i lost all of my data.
