Follow your Computer Manufacturers instructions on how to use their Recovery disk/s.

Email/phone them, or visit their website, or read any manual that came with your Computer on how to use their Recovery disks.

Normally, you would boot from the disk as per info below, and follow instructions.
But, check with your Manufacturer as to the exact way they do it.

"Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu"

Is your system a Toshiba? That seems to be what the error refers to from what I could research. From what I read, it's either a problem with the recovery disk (perhaps a periodic thing) or with the hard drive (apparently especially if the error occurs with the second recovery disk) (or the problem is bogus as one responder put it after being successful after a number of attempts). The first step I would try would be to get another copy of the Recovery Disks from Toshiba claiming that the first ones were defective due to the error message - they should replace them for free given the error (but they may still charge you - you know how these big companies work). You need to use recovery disks from the manufacturer (not the Neosmart disks since they can't do a reinstall). Here's another source for manufacturer OEM Recovery Disks (and they include Toshiba): I don't know if they will be cheaper or more expensive than going through Toshiba since I haven't checked prices but I present it as an option.

Do NOT do the solution of a low-level format with because that's not a viable option with today's hard drives and may cause irreparable harm to the drive. I saw someone suggest that in the other forums (which you may have read) and I wanted to make sure you didn't see it and try it. Then you'll have no chance of exchanging the hard drive.

You could use the Command Prompt from the Neosmart disk to do a quick check of the hard drive with chkdsk /f /r (which will scan and try to fix bad sectors). It may not help if the drive is truly defective, but it can't hurt (and it may very well fix the problem - who knows). Here's more info on the chkdsk command:

Is the PC/laptop still under warranty? If so, it might be prudent to use this error message to get yourself a new hard drive (since there will always be questions about it because of the error message even if you can get it to work). That may in fact be a better option than getting new recovery disks (if you can get them to give you a replacement hard drive for free).
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

My qx4. Infiniti ran low on oil cut off while I was driving it started a few times after I put oil in it it cranks but won't start

Probably low oil created an error code and needs to be reset. Sometimes disconnecting the battery overnight will reset the "computer" if that doesn't work you'll need mechanic or dealer. Or a family member or good friend help you find the way to reset. You can probably google make year model and "reset error codes" you may come across a youtube explanation.

Frigidare AEQ600es2 does not heat. Reports error code E68, but all buttons seem to work.

You will nee The error code E68 is a stuck button error code. I recommend checking each button to make sure it loose in the plastic console. The button should rock side to side a little bit. If all the buttons are loose you can try to reset the unit control by unplugging the dryer for two minutes. If the error code comes back you will need to replace the unit control.

Lens error on Cannon Powershot SD600

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

F32 error messaged?

Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
F32 is an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!

Please remember to leave a appropriate rating when you are done!
Thank You

Same Problem Again - Mega Raid.... Unknown Error


The title of your post suggests that you have "Maga RAID" errors. Maga RAID messages would be in line with issues on the LSI PERC sub-system.

However, the extract posted in your suggests network problems.

Any number of physical to driver and configuration issues can result in network problems.

Try the basic checks;
1. Change or try a known patch cable
2. Run "ping" test to a known good system connected to same network switch or direct connect with a "cross-over" cable and check for dropped connections.
3. Is the NIC and switch set to Auto-Negotiation or static at 10, 100 or 1000Mbps speed
4. Can you try another switch
5. Check and load correct or latest manufacture's drivers

Reply with more info.
