My IBM cant read the HDD during boot, but it displays it in the post boot screen, tried installing fresh XP but keeps on hanging on examining hard disk


Is this really an IBM? Didn't know there were any around any more. Is it old? Most old motherboards can't use newer hard drives. And some expect proprietary hard drives. Or is it just a "PC"?

First question is, what happened before that? Did it EVER read it?
Did someone change the Bios configuration?

Hard drives are pretty cheap. If XP can't read it, it probably has failed.
Replace the hard drive.

Can not boot up computer


possible your hard drive

A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

Getting boot error message


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Why does Fdisk assign FAT32 file system to the Drrive after partitioning it to extended logical drive?


Fdisk creates, deletes or change a partition on a hard disk and then you need to Format the hard disk so it can be used to store data.
Fat32 is a format file system and it is used when you want to read and write data between a PC and MAC computer.
If you only want to use the hard drive on a PC and using windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 the format the hard drive using NTFS not FAT32.

I have a dvd Rom sata connected and an ide connected but the ide won't read. i brought a new ide (same brand LG) i plug it in and the pc won't load up. it says insert disk. i plug the old one in...


You need to check that you don't have the same identifier for 2 IDE drives. you can only have one "Master" and one "Slave" on each IDE channel. If you have 2 of one the computer won't know what it is supposed to be doing with the drive.

My emachines hardrive keeps shutting down. It gets to the point were it says windows now loading but then it turns off. This goes on and on


Without knowing your computer knowledge, I would have to say that you should try the drive in another computer. this will give you some indication of the health of your HDD. If it works in the new location you should run a Virus/Malware scan on the drive. (Do this while still in the new location). Good luck- Hard drives are expensive at the moment.

My hp laptop keeps ejecting disc itself when i insert any disc. Wat do i do pls


> keep ejecting

The disk-drive is having a mechanical problem, i.e., it is not fully-loading the disk,
or it is not detecting that the disk is fully-loaded. Therefore, it assumes that the open/close
mechanism is "jammed", and so it ejects, to indicate that the disk-loading was not completed.

Replace the disk-drive.

When I will going to install win xp(sp2) with sata harddisk its show no dsrive installed on your system


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
