1781 Disk 1failure

I have an HP compaq nc6230 and every time I boot up it says 1781 Disk 1 failure. I'm running hdd test on the computer setup option. I wonder if this helps. P.S. I installed XP Pro because i didn't have its own original one.

Thank you for your help,

Hi I have the same problem - when I turn on my compaq nc 6230 it says "1781 Disk 1failure ", I click enter button and it's starts to boot windows xp and works good without any poblems. I took the HDD out and install into different nc6230 and it works good and no any erro "1781 Disk 1 failure" at all - so it's NOT an HDD problem ! Can somebody help to troubleshoot ! Thanks.

Este problema no tiene solucion por medio de actualizacion alguna
Es un problema familiar para HP y la solucion que me brindaron fue el cambio de la placa madre asi que no pierdas el tiempo y contacta al sentro si es que se encuentra en garantia

Back up your data and change the harddrive.

Your hdd is bound to fail anytime soon.

My hard drive fails and it wont boot. What is the best solution to it?


If its a HP notebook then perform the har drive self test.
Here are the steps below.
Steps for HDD self test.

  1. If the notebook computer is running solely on battery power, plug the AC adapter into the notebook.
  2. Shut down the computer if it is running.
  3. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
  4. Press f10 when the HP/Compaq logo displays.
  5. After the BIOS Setup Utility displays, use the Right Arrow key to select the Diagnostics menu.
  6. Select HDD Self-Test options .
  7. Press enter to display a list of HDD/Self-Test options.
  8. Select Notebook Hard Drive and then press f10 to display an Estimated test time .
  9. Press f10 to continue. The Hard Drive Self Test executes a Quick test , a Comprehensive test, and a SMART test.

If the hard drive fails then surely there is no option other than replacing it....
Please surely buy HP Hard drive.

Have a gateway Mt3708 it started turning off on its own now I have no screen. I had gotten message reading as follows: YUKON Pxe V4.17.8.1 (alpa) (20060116) (C) copyright 2003-2006 Marvell (R) all rights...


when the logo comes on, press the "tab" key. It should turn the logo off and show you what the computer is doing. This may help:

THIS IS FOR HP AND COMPAQ USERS (it might help others as well)
i had the same problem with my compaq preasrio v6000.
ALL U HAVE TO DO IS
1- START UP UP UR COMPUTER AND PRESS F10
2-GO TO DIAGNOSTICS
3-RUN A HARD DISK TEST
IF IT PASSES THEN YOU JUST NEED TO RE-INSTALL TO YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM
IF NOT YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR HARD DISK.

Or try this:
Go into the BIOS.. Go into the BOOT options.. and hit Shift+1 to disable the Realtek boot option.. pop in the disk you want to boot from.. and make sure you set your boot options to CD-Rom and then HDD.. and just wait.. be patient.. and the blue screen (for booting) will show up! :)

Hi i forget my password bios hp nc6230 and the computer give me a message:Disk1 failure 1781 please you can help me?


Well... for the BIOS password, that's usually fairly easy. There is a jumper on most motherboards labeled CLRCMOS (some actually say CLR PASSword). Should be 3 pins, with a jumper set on 2 of them. move the jumper to the other side, press the power button. Nothing should happen, no fans or anything. then move the jumper back, and startup. Should clear out the password. As far as the disk failure- may have a bad hdd. download DFT, burn it, and run an advanced scan on your hard drive.

1781 disk 1 failure


It could be the HD failing, the onboard controller failing (meaning the motherboard, or more importantly the laptop is toast), or it might simply be that the HD connection to the controller just needs to be reseated. The first thing to try is the HD test built into the BIOS. It should give a clearer idea of what is actually happening to the LT.

Boot into Setup and run the TOOLS / PRIMARY HDD TEST / SHORT TEST.

If it fails, try another HDD.

If OK, verify Boot Order is Floppy, CD-ROM, HDD. Exit Setup.

Print Table 1 Low Level Format instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106419

Boot with a DOS disk that contains Debug. Run the Table 1 script. Turn V5000 Off.

Boot with the HP Operating System CD. XP install should now proceed normally.

Good luck.
