By "took a hit" do you mean the hard drive was subjected to extreme shock, dropped, etc? Or do you mean a MBR virus?

And what software did you use to "wipe" or reformat the hard drive? Details.

Did you remove the HD and mount it externally, to erase/reformat it? Describe.

Need to know ALL this, to help you. Avoid slang, please.

Error Message:
Error 1516: Partition improperly dismounted (EA3905EC).
Solution:
Solution #1: One possible reason for the error involves the improper setting of a “dirty” flag in a restart record in the journal file, or activity log for a given hard disk. The term flag refers to a yes/no or true/false variable or a specific quantity that indicates the current state of a program or a piece of hardware. This can happen if the system crashed, or lost power while you attempted to create or write to a hard disk.

Running CHKDSK can solve this problem. Click Start, Run, type cmd, and then click OK. The Command Prompt should appear. Next you need to indicate the disk you want to repair. Type cd C:\, and then press ENTER. If you suspect that the error is on a drive other than C:\, substitute the appropriate letter for the drive you want to check. Next, type chkdsk /f, and then press ENTER. This command checks the drive you indicated for errors, while the /f switch fixes any errors. You may need to run the utility more than once to fix all errors.

Solution #2: Another reason for this error involves a conflict with Windows 2000/XP and SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) error detection, which is a feature of some software utilities. To resolve the problem you’ll need to disable the SMART error detection feature. Consult the utility’s documentation for instructions on disabling the SMART error detection feature. If you can’t turn SMART error detection off, you may need to uninstall the offending utility.

Next, insert the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD into your computer’s optical drive and reboot your computer. At the Startup menu, press R to access the Recovery Console. Type chkdsk /p and press ENTER. Reboot the computer and attempt to run DriveCopy. If SMART error detection was successfully disabled, then you shouldn’t encounter the error anymore.

When i try the acer system recovery it keeps coming up with an error that says windows could not install and setup with resume when computer restarts..restarts ands same box pops up? cannot get past that...


Have you tried booting to the system recovery again and starting it over? Otherwise you may need to wipe it clean and start from scratch. Download a program like Darik's boot an dnuke to wipe the hard drive clean (this will destroy all data on the hard drive, including system recovery data if that is saved on the hard drive instead of CD's.) Then try the system recovery again (if it's on CD's)

When i an entering data in pen drive after that when i am removing pendrive form pc, after that i can not see any data in pen drive, please informe me early as posible


If you are not dismounting your pen drive before removing it, you run the risk of wiping out the contents of the pen drive. You didn't mention that you were dismounting it before removing it, which is why I suggest that this may be the problem. The way to properly dismount a drive or any other USB device is to go to the lower right hand corner of the PC screen and look at all of the icons for the one that says "Safely Remove Hardware", click it and then follow the instructions. Under Windows Vista, the Icon has a small white checkmark in a green circle, but other versions of Windows may have a different icon.

Hello, My laptop will not start the windows set-up/Fresh Install scenario. after the drivers get loaded and says starting windows it goes to the BSOD error Stop 0x0000007B, I figure this to be a MBR virus...


blue-gw42ordsyt3sl3dyidksgpsd-2-0.png
In Figure 2-2 you can also see that the Windows service SPCMDCON.SYS has failed. From the BSOD, you should be able to gather the following information:
•The stop error number, which uniquely identifies the error
•The stop error parameters, which provide additional information relating to the specific stop error number
•Driver information is available if the source of the problem relates to drivers
Armed with this information, you are able to search online to establish the problem and hopefully a resolution.
In addition to the information available on the blue screen, if the system is able to be rebooted after the BSOD, either normally or using Safe Mode, it is useful to take a look in the System Event Log and view the error message. For example, a faulty driver during boot up usually has the stop error code STOP: 0x00000050 and an Error EventID of 1003.
If your system refuses to reboot successfully, or is trapped within a perpetual BSOD that restarts over and over again, you should take the following steps. Press F8 after the BIOS screen appears. From Advanced Boot Options, select Disable automatic restart on system failure, as shown in Figure 2-3. This allows you to read and make note of the information contained on the BSOD. You can then allow Windows to attempt a reboot. If the perpetual loop reoccurs, select another option, such as Safe Mode, from the Advanced Boot Options menu.

To disable the system from automatically rebooting, take the following steps:
1.Click Start, right-click Computer, and select Properties.
2.Click Advanced System Settings.
3.In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings.
4.In the System Failure box, clear the Automatically Restart check box.
These steps can also be configured if the system is booted in Safe Mode. There are over 300 unique stop codes, and most are quite rare. The full list
can be found on MSDN within the Bug Checks (Blue Screens) reference at

Cannot dismount Drive to format.


Its better to go into DOS directly then trying things thru windows since its not working properly.

Try using a win98 boot and you'll go to a A:\

When you get there type in FDISK and what you want to do is to delete all your partitions. Then once you do that go ahead and create a primary partition and when thats all done, let the system reboot and let it get back to the A:\

Once there type in this command:

format c: /u/c

As long as your hard drive is still good this will do a unconditional format while checking the clusters of the hard drive as well to make sure they are good. If there is problems it will either stop at a certain percentage or it will tell you "trying to recover file allocation table".

This is a good way of making sure your hard drive is completely clean before reinstalling anything back onto the hard drive.

Once this goes thru then you can put in your Operating System CD and when it gets to the point where it asks you to format then chooose Quick at that point and follow the prompts.

Hope this helps you out.
