Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop

1780 disk 0 failure message

My laptop is about 1.5 yr old and the optical drive no longer works. I have not fixed it nor do I even try to use it as it causes the system to crash. Now the computer stops intermittently and I get an error message : 1780 disk 0 failure or 1781 disk 1 failure. I have to go into to setup and try different options to get it to start again. Once it's running its ok, it's only if I leave it for a while and it's in standby with a program running that it reboots to the error message when I start it up again.
It is a HDD problem or optical drive problem. HP website says optical drive other people say HDD - help!

Drive replacement and rebuil ding Raid 1 on a Dimension XPS Gen 2

Hmm,tricky, I think your best bet would be to save old drive and do a complete new programme install hopefully you have the discs, then once setup and running, connect old drive as a backup and transfer data you require, there may be a better way, this is what I would seriously consider.

Can not enter bios on a evo n620C

The hard drive is faulty and needs to be replaced then Windows installed on the new hard drive plus the laptop's device drivers.
Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message

> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.

When i tried to reboot my laptop it wouldnt turn on, it came to a screen that said 0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0. Whats that mean?

This message means that system can not recognize your (bootable) disk with the operating system. Ususally this is because of a hard disk failure or motherboard failure. Try to shut down, unplug form the power cable and restart after some minutes. If this work take back up of your valuable files from your hard disk and get the pc to a technician in order to change the hard disk and clone (in case it's possible) the old disk to a new one.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

My computer can't recognize hard disk drive

Check all pins in the hard drive adapter. Make sure they are not bent. Common problem.

Bios Settings

I had similar problem few years ago.
On the hard drive manufacturer site you should find utility which will "cheat" your laptop bios and control the hard drive bypassing the bios.

0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0 IBM T-41

There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.

It dont work

If it says disk o failure then your primary drive is down. Get into your bios find out what key enables you to get into setup and then make sure your autodetect for drives is enabled. Sometimes, I have no idea why the settings will change.
