Fatal device hardware error

It means your Hard Drive is dead or about to be dead.
You have a few choices. If it is still running you can try to back it up. But in doing this you may destroy all your data on the hard drive.
If you are somewhat mechanically inclined you can take the Hard Drive out and send it in to have the Data recovered. But mind you it may cost $1k to get it done. Just look for data recovery online at western digitals website. They will tell you of companies that they recommend.
The down side is if your Operating system is on it and you don't have a back up of that operating system you are going to have to go buy a new one. Also you WILL need a new hard drive.
Sorry but I hope this helps you out.

On start up,there is a message that pops up,which says that,THERE IS A DISK READ ERROR.What does this means and how do I solve this?

I understand that you are having DISK READ error on startup. This error message may be due to BAD HARD DRIVE or a DEFECTIVE HARD DRIVE.
To do a work around, you can try to use a new IDE cable on the hard and try to boot the system again.

My pendrive not pick up by my system and not

You need to certain things.
  • If your pen drive is not being picked by any system, it is vital to see what the error message it gives.
  • If it says: USB device not recognized there is nothing more you can do. It means that the device driver installed in the pen drive is either missing or is corrupt or even was not installed (if you purchased it recently). What you can do is to get it replaced from your retailer.
If it says something else, please inform me, I will be following up your problem.

Philips laptop has fatal error message - system

Hello Vixen,

Sorry about the problem.

I will try as much as possible to give you a detailed steps you can try.

And they are going to be two Options.

First options is this:

If you have a Windows Installations CD.

Insert it into your CDROM Drive, then when you put on your system,

Go into the system BIOS/Setup by pressing 'Del' key or any other key (e.g F10) required to enter setup, while the system is booting.

Now look for where you have Boot Sequence or Boot Order.

Select the CDROM to be the one where the system will boot from.

then follow the On-Screen instruction and select repair.

Next Option is if you don't have the Windows Installation CD.

Put on your Computer,

While it is booting, Keep tapping the F8 Key, and this will bring up the Menu where you will have to select the different options of booting.

First of all try out "Last Known Good Configuration".

If it doesn't work, then try booting into safe mode.

If it boots in Safe Mode, then click on start---> Accesories--->System tools---> then System restore. Then restore you system to an earlier time.

Now, If all that still doesn't work, then Select Safe mode Command prompt.

When you get to command prompt, type: chkdsk or chkdsk /p and press enter.

This will scan your system for errors and correct it.

If this does not work, type scanreg .

This will scan your systems registry for errors and fix it.

If Trying All these does not work, then Go back to Option 1.

Which means you will have to get a Windows Installation CD.

I am giving you all this trouble-shooting steps with the assumption that you are using Windows XP. (Because you did not specify your type of OS).

But In case you are using Windows Vista,

then under option 1, after inserting the CD, and booting from it,

just follow the on-screen instructions and select:

"Fix what is preventing my Windows to boot Properly" , under the options.

All these are the FULL trouble-shooting steps you will need to get your system working.

But if after trying all of them out it still does not work,

Then you will have to take them system to a good technician.

Kindly keep me posted and let me know how it goes.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Good luck
