Assuming you have Windows Vista as an OS on it..

That's a hardware problem, not a Vista problem, the file system is munged and the HDD cannot be loaded. Often times, this is only resolved by recreating the system volume and starting from scratch. Boot from the DVD and try running a chkdsk /r from the recovery environment (choose the command prompt option), see if it can fix the drive. Otherwise, you may have to go the long way 'round. Hopefully you backed up your data on a regular basis

For more detailed information from Microsoft

Follow the link below to the MS website it explains how to fix this.
You will need the Recovery CD to boot into windows.

The disk might not have a working OS on it.

It you have successfully run the disk utility the disk probably in full working order. I think that the OS on the disk is either missing, corrupt or not compatible with the computer you are running it on.

When I turn on my ipod shuffle & hit play it blinks green and orange several times and won't play


The Apple iPod shuffle is a digital music player that contains a single indicator light that relays information about the device's battery condition, computer connection and any errors the device is having. The indicator light is capable of blinking red, green or orange as well as displaying a steady red, green or orange light. The iPod Shuffle includes a Universal Serial Bus interface and buttons on the front of the device for controlling music files.

Blinking Orange A blinking orange light indicates the iPod Shuffle is receiving an update via iTunes to the device's internal components. The update could include a patch to repair an error the player encountered once before, an update to the player's file-saving software, or a combination of security, repair and software updates. Updates are free and automatically sent directly from Apple through iTunes to your iPod shuffle before a sync process starts. Disconnecting iPod Shuffle When the player's light is blinking orange, do not unplug the device from your computer's USB port this will stop the update process and possible corrupt the device's internal hard drive. Let the update process and sync process finish before clicking "Eject" within iTunes and removing the player. Disk Use Enabled If you use your iPod Shuffle as a flash drive and not as a music player, a blinking orange light means that the device is connected to your computer and ready to accept files. The "Disk Use" enabled setting is changeable within iTunes if you decide to use your iPod Shuffle for music storage instead of file storage. When set up as a flash drive, the iPod Shuffle is assigned a drive letter by your computer's operating system and the drive lets you "drag and drop" files to the device. b> Charging If your iPod shuffle's battery is completely depleted or low on charge, connect the player to your computer immediately for charging then leave it connected to receive any updates to the device's software and internal components. Its indicator light may or may not blink orange until after it is fully charged. If the battery is low on charge or completely depleted, you may receive an error stating that the iPod is corrupt or needs restoring, close the error message and let the device fully charge.

Dell inspiron 1545 Laptop computer is getting BSOD on boot, when first ran diagnostics got error: Hard Drive - DST Test Results - Fail Error Code 2000-0142 Msg Hard Drive 0 - self test unsuccessful status...


The error indicates that there's a hard drive issue. If it just happened after the hard disk is reinstalled, remove it and reinstall it. It could be a problem caused by loose connection or improper connections. If the same problem repeats, install the hard drive on another system (to verify whether it works on another machine or not and to confirm it still works). If it doesn't work on another computer/system then your only option to run the system is replacing the hard disk. If it works on another computer or if it's detected on another system, then there could be problem with the hard disk, eg. Corrupt Partition, Windows Corrupt etc....
First of all, try booting into Safe Mode. You have to press F8 during the startup to go into Advanced Boot Options. Once you are in the Windows Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode using the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard. If it still doesn't work, it's the hard disk issue. Try with another Hard Disk.
But if in case you can boot into safe mode, check the Hard Disk for errors. In other words, run Windows Checkdisk utility. Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Severe Windows corruption - the driver you removed has prevented the reboot and corrupted all the other video files. Try booting in Safe Mode - in there the default driver should be selected. In there try to reinstall the driver again. If that fails the only thing left is to do a repair install (if you have a retail install disk) or a full reinstall - if you have a recovery disk.

Chek whether your system volume is infected. viruses or trojans may be the root cause. I also think that your system software is corrupt.

Hard disk temperature too low!


I had the same problem on my daughter's Lyra 5GB MP3 player. I fully charged it, tried the 10 second power button reset, and was on the way to remove the back to check the disk drive cable when my daughter dropped it and it started working again!
Good job too, since when I checked, the disk drive connector appeared to be soldered on.
