if it is not detected in BIOS, you will need to replace harddrive in your system it is pretty easy and then you can upgrade your harddrive too, also after your replace your harddrive you might have recovery discs came with your system just put these discs in your system and reimage your harddrive.

You will have to check whether you motherboard detects the harddrive first by logging on to the bios setup at the boot sector if it is showing the harddrive there then you might want to try downloading the latest bios update and installing it if all that does not work but the hard drive is showing on your bios setup them try re-installing the operating system here you must format the harddrive fully. If all these do not work then Im afraid you need to replace the harddrive.

How do I fix a failed hard drive in a laptop?


IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO DO. IF YOU CAN TURN A SCREWDRIVER AND READ YOU CAN REPLACE A HARD DRIVE. ANYONE CAN, MY GRANDMOTHER CAN. JUST WATCH IN VIDEOS. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU USE A WELL KNOWN LOCAL COMPUTER SHOP THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS. SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST NOT TO RIP YOU OFF. FRANKLY I FIND GEEK SQUAD HAS A VERY POOR REPUTATION, OR AT LEAST I GET ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THEM. CALL AROUND YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER SHOPS. KEEP THE BUSINESS LOCAL. GOOD LUCK.

Test does not detect hard drive boot up problems


Either your hard drive is bad or the controller circuit that controls it. So you have 1 option, replace the hard drive and run the test again. Depending on the size of your drive it may run you $50 to $ 150 bucks. If it's the drive controller circuit, you may need a new system board. Might be cheaper to buy a new computer.

How do you fix a disk read error for a Toshiba mini nb300?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

When i turn my compaq Evo N600c i get this message "1720 SMART hard drive detected imminent failure (failing attr : 05 ) " please help


If you want to save your data, start backing it up now!!!
That hard disk has detected bad sectors or other issues that is causing read, write or read/write failures.
The best thing to do if it's out of warranty is get a new hard disk and clone this drive to that one using a program like Acronis True Image.
Where you get the new hard disk will probably sell external enclosures or a USB adapter cable that you can use to have both hard disks hooked up at the same time to perform the drive cloning, or most computer shops if you are buying the drive from them will provide this service either free or for a modest fee.
Use the drive (meaning the laptop) as little as possible until you get a new drive into it.

Does my notebook need a new heatsink/fan?


If your fan spins at all it is not a problem with the fan. It might be a heat sensor on your motherboard that was not reading correctly.

Now your fan will only run when it needs to so the best thing to do is replace your hard drive and go from there. You can get a hard drive from Best Buy and if that doesn't fix it then your can just return it and buy a new laptop. Or if you want to keep the hard drive just buy a USB enclosure and use it as a backup drive for your pictures, music, etc. Don't go buying a fan if the fan still spins. But a part that can be easily returned first.

It doesnt detect my harddrive and it causes windows to crash...how do i fix it?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then probably the hard disk is faulty.
To check if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect the hard drive or open the folders and files, then the hard disk is faulty.
To get your computer operating again, replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Acer aspire one hard disk cannot read


Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.

What does ' a disk read error occurred press ctr alt del to restart, everytime i do it it gives me the same error??


You could have a hard drive problem. To check the hard drive boot up to the Windows XP cd in repair mode. At the C prompt type: chkdsk /r
This will start a program called Check Disk that will evaluate your hard drive and attempt to fix any errors. it Check Disk is successful it will complete 100% and return to a C prompt. You can then attempt to reboot. If Check Disk finds unrecoverable errors you will need to purchase a new hard drive and rebuild the OS.

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.
