I would recommend TechRx, Inc. http://techrxgb.com Typically, the WD2500BE has issues with PCB, or other issues that cause it not to be located. If you send it in, we can use diagnostic tools to examine the boards and help you recover any data you may need.

My Sony Vaio Laptop (Model VPCEE42FX) isnt working, it turns on, but then it says "Operating System Not Found." Can you help me ?


The laptop cannot find the Operating system which is installed on your hard disk drive. Go into the BIOS (setup menu) and see if the hard disk drive is present. If it is then your might need to reload the OS ( operating system software,i.e. Winodws Vista, Windows 7 ). If the BIOS does not detect your hard drive then either your hard drive is defective or the motherboard has a problem.

You can get replacement software for your camera by going to the manufacturers website and downloading it (http://www.sony.com) and then installing it to your pc.

Make sure the camera is not connect to the pc, go to that website click on support and then download drivers and/or software. Enter your camera make and model and then choose your operating system. Download the software and install it. Reboot the pc, then connect the camera and it should auto recoginize it if it was installed correctly. After that just follow the prompts to download pics from your camera.

Good luck!

Info Lost/Portable not recoginize


Assuming you've already tried using it on another PC or Mac (as appropriate) with any needed software installed, and that didn't work, your next DIY step is to remove it from the container.

If you can remove it (most drive makers do not publish the instructions to disassemble their equipment), you can hook the drive up inside most PC (not laptop) cases directly (if they have the required IDE or SATA connection), or take it to your local PC store for a quick test.

As a last resort, you can sent it to a "disk or drive recovery" company to get some or all of your data back if it hasn't been lost to a surface defect on the disk. This is usually a fairly expensive option.

Hard drive fix or patch


ensure that LBA is enabled in the bios on the laptop and also read the manual for the laptop in terms of hard drive issues ( possibly contact toshiba )
There may also be a firmware update that may rectify the issue so I would check into updating the firmware - check there website for the correct firmware and read the read me.
It is VITAL that you get the correct one and that it does not power off whilst you are doing the firmware update otherwise it will kill your laptop.
Also if this resolves the issue please rate this as a fix
If you need more help / more info please feel free to post back

Laptop won't boot up


In set up, set your your optical drive to be the first boot option and put your restore disk in the drive then reboot.

This should then read from your disk before trying to access any hare drives.
