Generally, the 1st thing to do is run diagnostics and see if the drive has failed. If it has, then replacement is the solution. If the drive passes diags and the drive will not boot, try booting to recovery console (Boot to XP CD, press R when prompted) then run the command CHKDSK /R

My system files disk stops loading about half way through. What can I do to fix that?


Hi Sobig,
Several possibilities:
What is the read capacity of the DVD drive vs the recovery disks?
Some disks come in the high-capacity 8 GB storage format, whereas most DVD drives are designed for 4.7 GB.
If that's the case, your DVD only 'sees' half the optical disk data. Is RAM enough?
The system could be locking up when resources are used up.
Other than that, (I'm guessing) that e-disks are faulty or incompatible.
If I lived nearer, I could look at it.
So hope something helps here.
Regards,
Clive.

Why is my hard disk drive indicator light always blinking on my Sony Vaio Laptop? My laptop reads cds and dvds fine, it is just annoying to always see it blinking.


This is perfectly normal. Your hard-disk indicator light is always blinking because your hard-disk is constantly being used by the operating system. Windows and other applications are performing operations in the background which require both reading from and writing to the hard-disk regardless of whether you are doing anything or not.

You only need to worry when the hard-disk light STOPS blinking . . . permanently!

Im getting a disk read error


Disk read errors mean that the hard drive is failing. You need to replace the hard drive. Do it soon and stop using the computer. Otherwise you will not be able to recover any data.

You are seeing a failure to read your hard drive.
Now you need to troubleshoot that. Your hard drive could have gone bad or you can boot from a system disk (that would be a Windows system disk) and run chkdsk.

If you need help doing that, just ask. I'd be glad to help you further.

Dvd player wont read disk


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD and flash drive. Please help me.
