Does the hard drive show up in the bios?

It sounds like you operating system is damaged and you will need to reinstall it.

If there is anything you need to get off the hard drive you will need to put the hard drive into a desktop via an adapter or use a bottable disc program called backtrack2 to get data off and onto a memory stick.

Hope this helps?

    Is the boot order set correctly in the bios? Its should be set to cd 1st then hd then removable devices. Sounds like its trying to boot from something other than hd.

Red light on on my Buffalo HD


Red ERROR LED The way the unit gives diagnostic codes is by long and short flashes of the specific light. The number of long flashes give the first of two numbers and the number of short flashes give the second. For instance, one long flash and three short flashes would indicate an error of 13 -
E 00
(No light, beep only) - MPU error E 01 DRAM data line error E 02 DRAM address line error E 03 RTC chip error E 04 Flash rom error E 10 UPS power loss E 11 fan error (RPM too low or not functional) E 12 cooling error (unable to remove heat by the fan) E 15 disk error E 16 unable to locate internal HDD E 17 Unable to communicate with the RTC chip E 21 unable to communicate with the Phy chip E 22 mount error. The original Buffalo firmware has the following error messages based on the number of flashes:
3 Partition problem with hard drive. Reformat the hard drive. 4 Fan problem. 5 ROM problem. 6 Hard Drive can not be recognized. 7 Problem with motherboard (RAM, LAN, or Hard Drive controller). Exerted from http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Information/LSProLED

I hope this has been helpful, unfortunately without more information I cannot help any further.

Tecra M2 doesn't boot is it a processor problem?


given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.
