How to recover lost data's in my computer after i formatted my hard drive


There are applications available that have varying degrees of success in recovering data from formatted hard drives. The bigger problem is whether or not you have written anything else to the drive since formatting it. These applications can recover the partition table and the File Allocation Table if things are pretty much pristine. What ever you do, don't put anything else on the drive you formatted. This will only corrupt things further and make recovery harder. If the data is crucial data, you may be better served getting a data recovery service to do it for you, although this can be very expensive and has no guarantee of success.


This link will take you a listing of many options for recovery. I cannot vouch for any of them.

How to format a compaq


Formatting is used to erase yourhard drive. Many times, this is used to clean a hard drive after a virus or toperform a completely clean installation of a new operating system. A Compaqlaptop can be easily formatted, but formatting will only solve system problems,not hardware problems. The process should only be used to solve problems as alast resort, since it will erase all of your data.
1. Back up all data before performingthe format (if possible).2. Insertthe operating system disk and restart your computer and wait until prompt fromthe system.3. Strikeany key when prompted to begin running the disk.4.Choose between reinstalling yoursoftware or repairing. Reinstalling will allow you to format and thenreinstall. Repairing will bring you to a DOS menu. You will need to use FDiskwith each individual drive letter on your hard drive. Use this option if youhave a multiple partitions on your drive and only need to format a singlepartition.5.Choose "Full NTFS" formatif you choose to reinstall the operating system.Remember:Most users will only need to use thereinstallation option. This option is perfect for users with one partition orthose reinstalling or upgrading their operating system.
Never format your Compaq laptopwhile on battery power. If the battery dies during the format, you could ruinyour hard drive.Hope this helps, pleaselet me know if you need further assistance.Please don't forget to rateand comment if my solution was helpful, thanks!

How i fix on my xbox 360 e68 problem?


hi, that error code usually relates to either a problem with the hard drive or a problem with the fans or a problem with some external source such as extra fans or other devices connected to your xbox, so try playing with no hard drive attatched and if it still dont work you know the hard drive is working as it should, if it works without the hd then it will need formatting or getting a new drive.

if it still dont work and you have extra things plugged into xbox unplug them and see if it works, if nothing works then the problem could relate to the wrong voltage getting to the fans.

here is the exact e68 error code:
E68: Hard Drive Error - Hard drive not DMA configured: It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it. Also this can be caused by a problem with the fans that make them draw too much power, it can also be caused if you have unnecessary accessories attached to the console like an external fan unit. Attempt to remove unnecessary accessories first, and then necessary components such as the hard drive and USB devices. If you have any case mods you may want to investigate those as well.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

The drive is not listed in


Try a replacement USB cable first, and test the LaCie on a different computer, to ensure the fault is on the external storage unit, and not a computer system problem.

There are two possibilities:

The LaCie USB/ATA controller board is faulty.
In this case you can simply take apart the enclosure and mount the disk into a new enclosure. New Lacie are SATA, but double check the hard disk connector to ensure.

The hard disk inside is faulty.
In this case repair may be expensive. You need to locate a data recovery facility with a 'clean room' , the cost is usually more than $800.

If this happened after a power surge, then the problem is most likely a faulty controller board.

If instead you have dropped the hard disk it is possible an hard drive failure, in that case repair will be expensive.

A replacement enclosure will stfrom art about $20 on Ebay or Amazon, and must not necessarily be LaCie.
Check if your LaCie is Sata or PATA (IDE) before buying the enclosure.

Hello! i got a problem with my external hard drive. My 4G flash is recognized but my 320G hard drive is not recognized in my desktop. I tried to plug the 320G hard drive in my laptop and it was recognized....


The external drive needs to be initialized from your PC. To do this, right click your My Computer and choose Manage. At the left panel click on the Disk Management. The list of available drives will show on the right.

Right click on the drive and select create partition (primary partition). After you've selected your partition , now you need to format the hard drive. Choose quick format. Right click again on the partition you've just created, now select "Format" and select NTFS. Click ok and it will guide you until it is finished.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Disk drive cannot read DVD+RW DISK


Ok, your situation is very vague.  How do you know it's a program?  Have you run scan disk?  What kind of computer is it?  Is the hard drive the drive with windows installed on it?  If you think it is related to something on the disk then you might consider backing up your vital information and formatting the hard drive and starting fresh.  I can help you get detailed guides for that.  Also it might help for me to see a list of process running on your computer.  I know how horrible it can be when something is bogging down your computer I hope this gets resolved soon.
