Samsung r530 bad sector hard drive. Did not come with operating software disc.


Remove the HDD and test, replace if necessary. You can contact Samsung, with your laptop Serial Number, and purchase a Factory Recovery DVD. Or, you can buy a Windows Installation DVD and do a Fresh install on the new HDD.

I can't install windows xp in samsung n110


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.

Dell Inspiron 600m: No Boot Device. I'm a computer


Have you tried resetting the BIOS defaults? In doing so, it will force IDE re-detection and often resolve vague boot issues.

XP installation problem - HP Cpmpaq 6720s Laptop [HDD detection error]


The hard disk is not detected because this model notebook has a SATA hard drive installed and the XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I have problem to install window xp in my laptop, which already have window vista....my notebook donot support to install xp..please tell is there any way to install xp...


What is your problem specifically? Is it that there is no hard disk detected when you try to install windows xp?

Try using third party software to detect the hard disk on your laptop
Try this link. It will basically give you your hard drive driver while installing windows xp. You will also need an external floppy disk drive if you dont have diskette drive in your laptop.

Won,t boot up


hard drive is faulty as it cannot be detected by the bios of your laptop. and/or your optical drive has no bootable cd in it. you may need to install a functioning hard drive with installed operating system for it to detect that the hard drive is bootable.

New 160 gig hard drive, can't load XP on Fujitsu S6210


Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS.
Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk.
If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk.
You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.

If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.
