How can i fix my acer 5515 smart failure predicted on hard disk 4 wdc wd1600bevt-22zcto-s1


This error message is warning that the hard disk could fail soon. It pays to back up your data frequently so when the hard disk fails you will not lose youe data.
The only way to fix this problem is to install a new hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk and the Acer laptop's device drivers plus your programs and data.

When i switch the laptop, i hear a knocking sound from hard disk and the computer displays non - system disk or error disk plz help


Good Day Kawindwe!

I am sorry but I think the hard disk is on its last leg. A knocking sounds is the first symptoms of faulty hard disk. It is better to replace it.




The non-system disk error is displayed when the CMOS BIOS failed to detect the hard disk.

There is a small chances of making your hard disk work again. It worked for me before maybe it might work with you too.

First, turn off your Laptop. Remove the power supply adaptor from your Laptop. Remove the battery. Press and hold the power on button for at least 5 seconds to discharge remaining volts on your unit. After awhile, return the battery, plug in the power supply adaptor and turn on Laptop. See if that recognize again your hard disk.

If the first did not fix it, try this one. Turn off your Laptop. Disconnect your hard disk and then reseat the connectors properly. Then, turn on your device. Did that fix your problem?

Kawindwe, in case that fixed it, I recommend you back up your files cause the hard disk will not last that long.

But If Hard disk drive is not detected change data cable,power cable of Hard disk.If hard disk is detected in bios follow upper rules. And if it is not detected again you should walk into Hard disk repairing center and check hard disk there.

Hard disk tiking when power up.


Hi,

Some times you don't know if your hard drive is working or not. Your external hard disk might drop on the ground, or your desktop/laptop hard drive might not be booting. Which ever the case maybe, here is how to find out the condition of your hard disk:

Put your ear close to your hard disk, if you hear your hard disk make a crackling noise, be prepared to buy another hard disk because such hard disk is damaged and cannot be fixed. Also note that it is difficult to recover files from such hard drive.

But if you don't hear a crackling sound, use your hand(s) to feel the drive, if it vibrates, it means the hard disk is in good condition.

What damages external hard drive most times is if you don't eject (safely remove) it from your computer, when it drops on the ground or hits any hard object etc

If your external hard disk stops working, firstly, check if the hard disk inside the case is in good condition by checking for crackling sounds and vibration. Once you observe that the hard disk is in good condition, this means the hard drive case is defective/the cause of the problem. Get another drive case and your drive will work again without loosing any file/data on it.

For desktop/laptop hard drive maintenance, make sure you always shut down your computer properly, don't remove the CPU's power cord while the computer is turned on. To be on a safer side, always use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for your desktop computer.

Also, when using your laptop, makes sure its fixed at a position. Avoid any shake as the hard disk might shift from its normal position in the process.

Good luck.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.


This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.

My hp nx 6310 cannot see my hard disk


Your computer cannot find your hard disk. The hard drive could be faulty or the hard disk controller has failed.
Reseat the hard drive (remove it and install it again), this may fix your problem with the connector on the motherboard.
If reseating doesn't work, the hard drive may be faulty, remove the drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if this computer see your hard disk as an external drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive then it is OK and the fault most likely is the controler in the laptop.
If you cannot see the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. To get your laptop operational again, you need a new hard disk and need to install Windows on the new hard disk together with your

Error loading operating system


The Thinkpad T23 is old, and would not worth fixing. Save your money on a new one.
The problem with your laptop is that the hard disk or the disk controller has failed and therefore cannot find the operating system on the hard disk. The error message states that it can't see the operating system that is on the hard disk.
.
If the hard disk is the only thing that has failed then you can buy a new hard disk and install Windows operating system on it to get a working laptop again. You will also most likely need to download the device drivers (ie. video, audio, modem, LAN adapter etc.) from IBM to install after the Windows installation.

Try to borrow a 2.5" drive or get a cheap one from a computer market and fit it to your laptop to see if the BIOS can detect the hard drive. If it works then outlay some money to buy a decent size hard drive, no point wasting money if the laptop is faulty.
