Question about Maxtor MaxLine Plus II 7Y250MO 250 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a Dell computer with a Maxtor 7Y250M0 hard drive. Diagnostics how it failed with a return code 7. No sound when computer started. Black screen with error message giving choices to start windows normally, safe mode, etc. All choices end up leading back to the same screen. Any hope of saving photos that were on the drive. Thanks.

sounds like the Hard Disk is failing. try booting into safe mode by Pressing F8 Before the Windows 7 Splash Screen. The run diagnostics on the C Drive. Open Recovery by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type recovery, and then click Recovery.
You can use Recovery to restore the state of your computer's system to a previous point in time, or restore the contents of your hard disk from a backup. You can also reinstall Windows from a recovery image installed on your hard disk.

Maxtor 6L16OMO hard drive says fail and I was just using it, is there anything I can do???


Are you able to boot into safe mode? When you turn on the computer just keep tapping "F8" until you see "start windows in Safe Mode" and others on a list..pick the first one "safe mode" and hit enter. If you are able to boot to this let us know. I've read other posts about the "code 7" and they all point to a dead hard drive, but we'll see...

C0000218 error code.cannot boot dell 8400 to troubleshoot problem


It sounds like you've had a fatal error - you can reboot the PC back to factory setting - this is called a hard reset - but before you do that - unplug you tower and clean it out (dust & dirt) - once you're done with that - restart you computer and press &hold down the "Ctrl" and "F11" button at the same time - this will let you reset the PC to the original factory configuration.

How do I make my MAXTOR Hard Drive 7Y250M0 a slave?


A slave drive is defined by removing the jumper (pin sleeve) completely from the drive. Then go into your BIOS and if it doesn't auto-detect as slave, manually change the settings and you'll be good. You shouldn't have to go into your BIOS.

If you can see it as slave in BIOS, but not in Windows that means the drive is not formatted properly and to do so, Right click on My Computer in Windows and goto Manage. It should load the Computer Management window. From there goto Disk Management under Storage in the left side browser. You should see the Hard Drive there, right click on that and format it.

That should do it.

Computer will not boot.


Form the info you provided, you have a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) disk array. RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across several disks in a way that gives improved speed and full capacity, but all data on all disks will be lost if any one disk fails. Apparently Diagnostics has determined that “Drive 2” is defective. You will have to replace the defective hard drive and reload the Windows operating system.

HD not being detected


Sounds to me its a bad hard drive. Set it as slave and install it into another PC with enough empty hard drive space to copy all needed files. Try to observe also your hard drive if there's any clunking sounds and if it does any, eventually that drive of yours is just waiting the right time to give in.

Back up your files as soon as possible.
