Ppu is a part of cpu that processes specific data separatedly if you are on operative system enviroment you are talking of something related to graphycs components... but was this your question? or do you want help with your problem?

if you need help I need more info cuz I dont know what you did besides formatting an HD... did you installed a new os? Did you do it with a good installation CD? I coudnt know.

What I can tell you now is that POST has nothing to do with HD... the post should be ok if you boot with the HD disconnected...

In fact if you boot only with mother, micro and RAMs, some video adapter (integrated or external)... and of course power supply... post should be ok, otherwise you have hardware problems, most likely mother or ram... might be videoboard but its not that frecuent...

What you should do is just that, booting with basic hardware and see if its ok... if you can enter the bios restar normally and all that... IF NOT, try disconecting all cables and resetting bios... if you dont know how... take the lithium battery of the motherboard and move the (cmos or crtl) jumper to reset position and let it all like that for 10 minutes... (10 just to be completely sure) NO POWER SUPPLY.

THEN put the basic pieces back together and try booting... NO DISK NO NOTHING BUT BASICS...

If you still have problems you might have hardware problems and I sadly cant do anything from here... But if you succeed just connect HD and a cd reader and install any OS with a good working CD.

G luck

A Physics Processing Unit (PPU) is a dedicated microprocessor designed to handle the calculations of physics, especially in the physics engine of video games. Games wishing to take advantage of the PhysX PPU must use AGEIA's PhysX SDK.

What is the mobo model #? Did you recently install a PhysX card?

Since you have so often problems, I suggest to take a look at the controller also (firmware etc). If it's possible use another one (in case of independent controller). A good idea is to check for hard disk firmware update from official seagate site.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Hard disk making funny noise and netbook does not recognise boot device after automatic windows update and restart.


You either have an error with your hard disk or with the Windows partition files.

Some HP Mini Netbooks have a hard drive self-test feature. In order to check for a hard drive problem, turn on your computer and press the "F10" key during startup. This will open the Setup Utility. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Diagnostics" menu, then highlight "Hard Disk Self Test". Let the test run fully. If it reports an error(s), then you have a damaged/defective hard drive, and you will need to replace it by either contacting HP through their support site, or by replacing the drive yourself with a new one.

If the Setup Utility cannot detect your hard drive at all, then you either have a defective hard drive /or/ a defective SATA controller (this is what connects your hard drive to the computer). Unless you can connect your hard drive to another computer, it is very hard to determine which is causing the problem. You should contact HP if you are under warranty, or check in at a local computer repair shop if you are not.

If there are no errors reported with your hard drive, then either your hard drive only fails some of the time (and you should be able to boot into Windows at the moment), or there is a problem with the partition (section) on your hard drive that handles booting up. You will need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows in this case.

Boot disk failure no hard disk found


The error means that your system is not able to detect the hard drive on the system, check if the hard drive wire connections are tight and not loose and then try rebooting the system.

Look for hard drive stats on POST whether it succeeds or fails. This is how you can do that.
When system boots up, press the PAUSE?BREAK on the black screen and see whats system comment for your hard drive power test. If it succeeds and your hard drive's connections are also tight then possibly your hard drive might have crashed ( which means there are bad sectors on the hard disk).

Try performing disk checking on the hard drive to see if there are any bad sectors on the hard disk, the disk check will automatically fix the soft errors but if the errors and hard errors in that case the disk checking utility will not automatically fix the errors and you will need to get a new hard drive.

Thanks !!!

Microcode fails to load at power on self test (post). stays on WorkIO splash screen as the hard drive fails sounds like it crashed or is stuck ina loop.


The microcode is loaded from CMOS not the hard drive. CMOS also sets up the 40Gb. hard drive for use. Initially has no data or partition tables however; post will not complete if the disk is unavailable. Replace the disk drive and you're Done!

Post reports NO HDD installed. Spinrite 6 reports HDD is very sick and one should try to copy off files as it it is going down.


Hi,

If the post screen is saying no HDD installed then you have remove the hard drive from the machine as soon as possible before it fails completely and you loose all the data you have on it.

As soon as you have a new HDD installed and an operating system on it you can then connect the bad hard drive as a slave device either in an external case or internal for the time being so you can get your data from it.

My laptop HP Pavilion dv1000 is not working so I pressed F10 for the Bios Setup Utility went to tools to do a Hard Drive Self Test and the Test Status is #1-07 Fail. What does that mean?


Hi there.
The error code means the drive has failed or that Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, or S.M.A.R.T is faulty.

Go back into the bios and disable the
S.M.A.R.T, hit F10, save the changes and try to boot again.
Please post back with the results.

Good luck

I have a gateway Profile 5. when i cut it on


My understanding is that when you power on your PC, the POST is succesful, but then the system hangs.? If i am correct. There are several reasons this may happen.

1) Boot record corrupt
S) Reformat the harddrive and re-install operating system / replace hard drive

2) General Hard drive failure but boot record instact
S) Replace Hard drive

3) Operating system inoperative
S) Re-install operating system

Most pre-built systems come with recovery disks, you may try this as a solution if available.

When replacing a defective hard drive, or partialy inoperable hard drive, a good policy is to change the drive to slave, and install the new drive as master, this way any data you may be able to recover, can be done after the new hard drive is installed, and an operating system is installed on the new drive.

Compaq Presario V6000, keeps rebooting, blank screen, and no post beeps. Replaced ram, battery, and power adapter. There is no hard drive light. I think it is a hardware problem, because it will not boot...


If your pc reboots just after post my first place to look is to reseat the hard drive and see if that makes a difference. If it doesnt you could try and repairing your windows operating system or doing a system restore. If the os loads sucessfully then i would say you had a corrupt boot file maybe from a virus or a failing hard drive. I hope this helps

Im having serious probs here


first, ensure that only one master hard drive is connected (also disconnect cdrom(s). Next, at startup press the key (DEL or F2) to BIOS screen. then make sure that only the master hard drive in position 1 is listed or choose AUTO detect. now reboot and report if any progress. If no further progress, then master hard drive has failed somehow, but to be certain, try that drive on another pc as a slave just to test spin-up.
