Error 2100 hard disk drive intialization error (2)

Posted by on

  • For Old Hack May 11, 2010

    Do you have a Levono/IBM? Error 2100 usually indicates a cable problem. Remember the 99% Rule. 99% of the time, ITS NOT PLUGGED IN. Check the seating on the Power plug first, then check the seating on the IDE Cable on the HD, then on the Motherboard. Let me know what happens.

Normally a indication of a failed hard drive. Try reseating drive connections and if nothing changes, replace hard drive

Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

Disk management showing that hard disk is not intialized


Do you have data on it ? if not try formatting it (you will loose everything on it). Maybe the disk was formatted with a filesystem that windows can't read, like from a linux or mac OS ?

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable on compaq presario 2100


A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.

Trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue


Hello,

It sounds like the RAID controller in the LAcie drive may have failed. When this happens generally the data on the drive is left intact but you will require a new casing for the drives and the help of a data recovery pro to get the files off before you can re-initialize the set. Unfortunately all the good free/cheap utilities work only on single drives so you will need the help of a pro with high level software and additional equipment to retrieve the files.

If you are in North America I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa service database for most US states. If you're outside North America, post your location and I will help you find an appropriate service.

Trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue


Not sure if this is the exact same issue, but I couldn't get the drive to mount with different connections, etc. The problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

HDRW720 will only do demo mode


The error code has a Nucleus Group and Number followed by an Error Code.
The Nucleus 2100 references
DS_HDD_Communication
Check the communication between the digital board and the hard disk drive by querying the device type of the device type of the hard disk.
The Hard drive 282206200034 is no $399.80 available from partstore.com which you can just drop in since it is formatted. If you can find a hard disk which is rare due to the small size no one buys, it can be formatted to just drop it in. You will need the hard drive ( 120GB ATA), the PC communication cable 312278590017 $22.75 and the Service DVD 312278590710 $36.96 which will allow you to format the hard disk for the unit. I would do this for you but you might have other problems with the system which can only be found with more diagnostics after the drive is installed. Or it could be a drop in and go.
For the unit which is stuck in trade (demo) mode,
Unplug the unit.
Simultaneously hold the Stop + Open close while plugging in the unit.
