Well not really, the only chance you would have is to A: Get an NEW, EXACTLY the same Hard Drive, remove the electronics board and replace it for the bad one, NOTE This will ONLY work, if the Controller board, ONLY, is damaged, NOT if the drive internals have failed. If that happens then it is option b. B: Send it back to the manufacturer and pay them to recover it. They can take the Platter(s) out and put them in a new drive or simply copy the data off and put on a new one, this is pretty expensive, but if the data is worth it then that's your only option.

My ATI Catalyst Control center Problem was first.


Your hard drive sounds like it's about to fail. MAKE BACKUPS NOW! I would start in safe mode and backup all my important files to an external source. Then I would run a chkdsk, here's how:
Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
  1. Click Properties, and then click Tools.
  2. Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
  3. Use the following procedures:
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer? Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.
Please don't forget to rate this solution.

Replaced hard drive now computer wont boot


If you have a restore CD/DVD that came with your Toshiba, you may have to use it to reformat your hard drive and do a fresh installation. You may have a bad sector or cluster and the boot file is located on it. Try this and check the bios for the setting of your hard disk too. Try starting the system on safe mode by pressing F8 at boot time.

How del bad sectors in hard disk


Detecting and repairing disk errors You can use the Error-checking tool to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your hard disk. Open My Computer, and then select the local disk you want to check. On the File menu,Right click>> click Properties. On the Tools tab, under Error-checking, click Check Now. Under Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box. Notes To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer. All files must be closed for this process to run. If the volume is currently in use, a message box will appear prompting you to indicate whether or not you want to reschedule the disk checking for the next time you restart your system. Then, the next time you restart your system, disk checking will run. Your volume will not be available to perform other tasks while this process is running. If your volume is formatted as NTFS, Windows automatically logs all file transactions, replaces bad clusters, and stores copies of key information for all files on the NTFS volume.


thanks.

This will show all the drivers for the OS Win XP, for you're Satellite A105-S2071. From time to time a driver will not install correctly. This means either the driver is not correct or windows is just being stuborn. Running the .exe usually installs the software but other times the driver must be installed through device manager. (The correct driver). The link above shows me the sound driver files name is (sa100audiox.exe)
(Realtek Audio Driver for Windows XP (v5.10.0.5188; 12-06-2005; 22.98M)
Creat a folder on you're desktop & name it Realtek Driver.
Download the driver file into this folder & uncompress the .exe by double clicking on it.
Try installing normally. Than re-start the system. Test you're sound. If you're sound still does not function, install through device manager. Right click on My computer icon. Slide down to & left click properties. Click the hardware tab, than click the device manager button. Scroll down to & click the + sign next to sound, audio and game controller. (It may already be opened).
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click update driver.
Show windows the way to the folder you created on you're desktop & click ok. Windows hardware wizard should install the the correct software you have givin it.

Good Luck!

Undifined problem


You want to Check Disk for errors as soon as possible. If using Windows, right-click on the drive in My Computer, click on Properties, then the Tools tab, then the Check Now button, then the Start button.

This can happen with any drive if the connection to the drive is lost too soon after saving a file to it. Always use the little 'Safely Remove ...' icon for the drive first, before removing any flash drive.

When a file is saved, the data has to be written to available clusters, the directory has to be updated, and the cluster map has to be updated. In this case, it appears the directory was updated, but either the cluster map had not been updated so that the clusters were still available to be overwritten by a later file, and/or the data itself had not finished being saved, so the old contents of its clusters were still there.

Sanse e200 freezing up for no reason!!!


Hi. It seems like your player decided to throw a hissy fit by deciding to experience internal system errors. Best that you reset the firmware. Here's how: Switch your Sansa E250 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E250 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E250 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E250 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. Step 5: Enjoy using your Sansa E250, just like I do. (I love this player)
