A black page came up and said to contact xbox custemer support and it has E 68 at the bottom what can i do

Turn on the console. Make sure the code recurs, otherwise it may just be a random hardware fluke and nothing to worry about.

  • Turn the Xbox 360 off. Detach the hard drive from the console by pressing the latch on the front of the hard drive caddy and lifting it from the top of the console.

  • Turn the console on again, without the hard drive. Make sure you have the latest update for the console from Xbox Live--all it takes is a quick connection to the internet with the console. If you have the NXE dashboard, or have bought your Xbox 360 after fall 2007, you should be good to go.

  • Disconnect and reconnect every peripheral hooked up to your console--including power cord, video cable and memory cards. This step is especially important if you have any third-party peripherals attached, such as a cooler.

  • Contact Microsoft support directly if all the above steps fail. This means the hard drive itself is at fault, and you simply need a new one.

    I installed A new hard drivein my dell DIMENSION2400 now I don't know what to do next

    1. Step 1 When you format a computer hard drive you will lose everything that is on the drive. Therefore, it is very important to back up anything you might want later. Additionally, if you are going to be formatting and installing XP you need to make sure you have the discs for any applications or third party hardware you use since you will need to re-install your programs and drivers after re-installing Windows.
    2. Step 2 Take a moment to think of anything that you have on the computer that you wouldn't want to lose. Generally, you probably want everything in your My Documents folder, and you also want to save things like your favorites or bookmarks from your Web browser. Remember that each user on the computer has his or her own My Documents folder, Desktop items and Favorites/Bookmarks.
    3. Step 3 Save everything to a CD, DVD or a hard drive that you won't be formatting.
    4. Formatting a Secondary Hard Drive
    5. Step 1 Right-Click on the "My Computer" icon either on your desktop or in the Start Menu and select "Manage."
    6. Step 2 A new window titled "Computer Management" comes up. Select "Storage" from the left hand side by clicking it once, then select "Disk Management(local)" from the right side by double-clicking it.
    7. Step 3 Now in the lower part of the main frame (right side) of the window you should see a nice visual of all your hard drivesmag-glass_10x10.gif. Each line is a different drive. Each box on a line (with a colored bar at the top and a size displayed in MB or GB) is a partition on the drive. Partitions are separations of space on a drive. Unless you are doing something specific that requires multiple partitions, you only want one partition per drive.
    8. Step 4 First you must delete any existing partitions on the drive you are going to format. Do this by right-clicking on the partition's box and selecting "Delete Partition..." Since you already know that you will be deleting everything on the drive, and have already backed everything up, you can safely say yes to any warning the computer presents you with.
    9. Step 5 format-hard-drive-2.5-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href',''); }); If there are multiple partitions make sure you have saved everything off them since they might each have different drive letters (i.e. "D:" or "F:"). Then repeat the above step for each of them. If you only want to format one partition that is OK and you can continue to the next step without deleting the other partitions.
    10. Step 6 The box for the drive to be formatted should now have a black bar at the top of it and should say "Unallocated" under its size (see picture). Right click on it and select "New Partition..." The New Partition Wizard comes up.
    11. Step 7 In the New Partition Wizard click next. On the next page make sure "Primary Partition" is selected and click next. Now make the size equal to the maximum (it should already be set to it), and click next again. On the next page the computer will automatically choose the first available drive letter for the new drive. However, if you like you can choose another drive letter from the drop-down menu, and then click next.
    12. Step 8 Finally the New Partition Wizard asks if you would like to format the new partition and if so what format. Choose "NTFS" as it is faster and more secure. Leave the "Allocation unit size" as "Default." In the "Volume label" field enter whatever name you want the drive to have. Simple is better. Avoid using spaces. Lastly, if the drive is brand new and has never been used before check the "Perform a quick format" box. If the drive has been used before leave this box unchecked. Leave the "Enable file and folder compression" box unchecked and click next. Then on the next page click finish.
    13. Step 9 The wizard will now spend a little while formatting the drive. On old or large drives this may take a while. Do not close the "Computer Management" window until it finishes. You will know it is done when the word under the size of the drive changes from "Formatting" to "Healthy" and the name and drive letter you chose for the new drive show up. After it is finished you can proceed to use your newly formatted drive.

    You can go as big as you want. just make sure you get a hard drive that is compatible.

    one quick thing, i do not understand what "i can not get it to scan anymore it freezes up" means. If you can access windows at all the hard drive isnt dead. It may be on its way out though. So go buy a new hard drive the GB size doesnt matter, you can put what ever size in it that you want.

    Good luck, hope this fixedya

    Hdd c: problem

    Quick format only marks the disc as empty.
    Try performing a CHKDSK /F /X /R C:
    also do a full format next time, you may want to replace the hard drive, or you could try a program like HDD REGENERATOR or SPINRITE to fix it. These programs may not fix the hard drive as if it is too damaged but they may help in some problems.

    Quick question or 2

    If this is an IDE drive, you will have to make sure the jumper on the end of the "new" drive is on "Slave".

    IDE drives have a cable about 2 inches wide. This is probably what you have. The above link is for IDE drives.

    Here is a link to help out:

    (SATA drives have cables about 1/2 inch wide. You shouldn't have to worry about jumpers with them.)

    Here is a youtube video that may help also:

    Once the computer recognizes the drive, you can format it by double-clicking "My Computer" on your desktop. Right click on the icon for the new drive and select "Format..."

    How to replacy its harddrive

    It is pretty easy to replace a lappy's hard drive.. ensure you get the right one... Then it is simply matter of releasing & removing the Hard Drive from the laptop and then simply "Plug In" the New HD. After this it must be "Formatted" "Partitioned" and have the "Operating System" installed.. ya good to go. A service manual would also help.. I think I have found one below..
