If you have an additional hard-drive, try to install an OS on it and use a recovery program, if not, you may ask a friend to recover the Master Boot Record. The hard-drive has lost the mapping of where were your files and the use of a recovery program will take a looong time. so be patient as it generally lasts 17 hours for smaller hard-drives, and it increases, depending on the hard-drive's capacity and used space percentage.

My ps3 keeps on saying your hard drive is corrupted


Likely, your HDD is corrupted. Before you attempt to reformat the HDD, and will thus lose all your information, if you have a spare laptop harddrive laying around, try swapping them -- the PS3 uses regular SATA HDDs. If that works, then the problem is with the original PS3 HDD, and needs to be formatted. If the new drive does not work either, then the problem is with the PS3 itself, and it will need to be serviced.
When the time comes to format the drive, check this article below --

I have a compaq CQ60Z laptop and everything was working fine until yesterday when it all of a sudden stopped charging and now it won't charge at all and the battery has only 11% left. The charger is in and...


Hi, I couldn't say what's wrong without looking at it but here are a few things to try:
First, be sure that there is power. some laptops report 'plugged in' simply because the plug is in the computer. Check fuses etc.
Second, remove the plug and then remove the battery. replace battery and re-plug the charger. This should reset the electrical system.

Hope this helps,

The camera of my nokia 6600 is not working it says "HARDWARE FAILURE: PLEASE RESTART CAMERA" what does it mean? i already reset the phone but its still the same. what should i do?


You will need to format your phone and restore it to factory settings. Backup your data before you start the format. To format:
Press *#7780# on your phone, it shall ask you weather you want to restore the phone to factory defaults? Select Yes, enter the security code (default is 12345) the phone shall restart. Now once it comes back, press *#7370# and follow the same process again. After it comes back, everything should be working fine.

In case you do not remember the security code, then turn off the phone, press the star key (*), number 3 key and Green keys (the one used to make the calls) together and keeping them pressed turn on the phone, do not release the keys until you see the formatting screen, let it complete and the phone shall restart and then it should be working fine.

The only solution left is to get a card reader and insert the card in the card reader.

when the card is detected it will show a removeable drive in My Computer. Right click on the removeable drive and click on properties....now click on the the tab which says Tools......now under error checking click on Check Now......now click both the option that is Automatically fix the system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

After the scan is complete the card will work fine.
