Can't perform system recovery on Fujitsu LifeBook UH 552


If you started a system restore from your CD, all of your data is gone and you must rely on your backups. Usually if you press F8 just before it tries to boot, you may be able to use the recovery partition on the hdd.

Hdd not found


If your Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is not found and assuming that this is also your boot disk for starting the laptop, then you have several possible causes:

1. The HDD has failed / died / become non-operational and will need to be replaced and your operating system reloaded or restored from a backup if you have one.

2. The computer BIOS has lost the configuration for the HDD and doesn't recognise it as a valid boot device. In this case, you would need to go into the BIOS settings and check to see what HDD devices are beig detected, then look at the Boot options within the settings and ensure that the HDD is selected as the main boot device.
Note: It is normal to have other removable devices set ahead of the HDD such as CD / Diskette or USB devices.

3. The HDD boot sector has become corrupted and the computer no longer recognises the disk as a valid boot medium. You would need to repair the HDD is this is possible using an alternative boot media such as the Hiren's Boot CD which you would need to download as an ISO CD image then burn on to a blank CD disc, then boot from. The DOS programs on the Hiren's CD provide a very good HDD repair tool called HDAT2.

An alternative approach would be to remove the HDD from the laptop and connect it as a slave in a different computer and then perform any repair activities from that system.

Click sound on hard when it gets hot then freezes up ????


Hello

OK, this is not good at all...This means that your Hard drive is failing. The best advice you can be givin at this moment will be to backup the data on the drive as soon as possible, it might be too late already.

If the drive does not want to backup, you will need to send it to a recovery centre to recover the data.

Hello

OK, i had this exact error on my other laptop yesterday, sorry to say, but you will need to format the computer and reinstall windows XP. If there is data on the HDD you would want to keep, you will need to plug your HDD into another computer and backup the data before you format.

Kind regards

Operating system is .............


power on the computer, immediatly tap f8 until you get to the boot menu. Choose "last known good configuration". If this fails, your master boot record is corrupt.Boot into safemode, copy all of your data to an external hard drive, then reload your operating system from the secondary partition on your hard drive or insert your OS restore disk and follow the directions.

Need to restore emachine 667 to factory settings


Did you create backup disks when you got the pc? If not, do you have an operating system cd? You could also go into system tools and do a restore and choose factory during the process if it allows. If you get it to work and you do not have backups then create them as soon as possible.

Windows XP cannot find filepath


Probably your disk is going..going...gone.
Back up all the data you can as soon as possible. If you have one use a boot cd, like norton utilities boot cd and check the hdd from boot cd.
Alternatively take out the HDD and mount it on a different computer as a slave hd so that you can get out data. After you can format and reinstall windows if HDD is still physically ok.

Even better if you buy an external hard disc caddy enclosure, take out HDD from computer. Put hdd in usb caddy. Connect usb caddy to working computer and take data out.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z.
