Another hard drive with a compatible working system would help!!! Even if your hard drive has gone bad, you mite be able to make copies of files you want to keep from a second computer.System mechanic from iolo products has a trial, (30,days),that will give you the option to make a boot disk that has a drive medic program that might help you.I think on that same program you have the option for (1),complete wipe ...NOTE I AM JUST A LEARNER ,YOU WOULD DO WELL TO LISTEN TO THOSE MORE IN TUNE ...THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.

Hi Jason,
This message usually indicates that the boot sector is damaged or missing. The boot sector is a region of your hard disk that contains information that is used to load your operating system. If a boot failure is detected when your PC is starting, you may receive this error message.
To resolve this issue, use the steps in the following KB article:
Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB2622803)
Instead of reading everything from the link to Microsoft above, you could try this:
You'll need to repair or copy the bootmgr file.
Do the following steps:
  1. Put the Windows installation disc in the disc drive, and start the computer (In the BIOS settings, make CD/DVD as first bootable device)
  • Press a key when the message indicating 'Press any key to boot from CD or DVD' appears.

  • Select a language, a time, a currency and a keyboard or another input method and then click next.

  • Click Repair your computer.

  • Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click next.

  • In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

  • Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd and then press ENTER.
Let me know how it goes, good luck and if this was helpful please rate me.
Thank you

Disk read error


it is entirely possible that the boot sector is damaged. if this is the case you need to boot with the cd that came with the machine, or a recovery cd you've made, and load the recovery environment. once their load the command prompt. it should just be a button in vista or 7 and it will automatically load in xp. once loaded type "chkdsk c: /r" no quotes. let it run, this will check for bad sectors and should fix the issue. try and reboot, and let me know what happens. if you don't have the recovery cd's or installation media you can download msdart, which has the recovery console built in. i went ahead and uploaded msdart, download the version you think you need. https://rapidshare.com/files/2296685117/ERD50_x86_WinXP_SP3_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/2914560443/ERD60_x64_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.zip https://rapidshare.com/files/267688033/ERD60_x86_WinVista_SP2_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/1400985026/ERD65_x64_Win7_RTM_blueforce.ziphttps://rapidshare.com/files/3314839442/ERD65_x86_Win7_RTM_blueforce.zip

Blue Screen doesn't load Operating System. I beleive there is a software conflict when my daughter downloaded an application she needed for university


If you are getting 'Uncorrectable data Error or Media' for your internal hard drive then it is likely that you have a disk problem rather than a software conflict caused by anything your daughter downloaded.
If the Dell diagnostics provide no solution, then you would need to use a specialist boot CD to try to repair the disk errors. One such disk is Hiren's Boot CD which can be downloaded as a CD image file (.ISO) from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ then would need to be burnt on to a blank CD then the laptop booted from this CD.
On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select DOS programs, then select Disk tools before selecting HDAT2 to perform the disk repair actions.
HDAT2 can take some time to complete depending on the size of your internal disk drive and the number of bad sectors or other errors encountered - the tool will attempt to repair bad sectors by reading, verifying, writing and re-reading / verifying the data.
If the disk can be recovered, then you may be lucky and the system will be able to boot but otherwise, you may still need to do some further recovery work for the operating system, in which case you may need your Windows install or recovery CD media.

My acer aspire one has a hard drive failure on the following disks IDE/SATA.I diagnosed it then got the following report. HDD doesn't respond to system commands Boot sector damaged read time...


You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

I have an EPC mini laptop and when I switch it on it freezes with the message Loading OS Image.


These are very simple netbooks with ARM processors.
It has no BIOS like PC.

Your system had the OS changed, because this it is not working.

If you know the processor is VT8500 or WM8505, you can solve as explained here:

hi,
not at all.
This issue may occur if your computer BIOS does not correctly manage or support the capacity of the hard disk on which you are installing Windows XP.

Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

Regards,
Jeep Brainy
