First off, have a laptop - Toshiba Satellite P35-S629. The whole system is wiped out. States PXE-ROM keeps rebooting over and over. I have tried to reinstall Windows by CD but states I have no HDD...


Your computer has a P(re) (e)X(ecution) E(nvironment), whereby it sends traffic over your network-connection, hoping to contact a "boot-server". If a "boot-server" responds, then Windows will load through your network-cable, rather than loading from your disk-drive. Really cool, eh?

> no HDD present

Either your H(ard) D(isk) D(rive):
* is getting no electrical power, i.e., push the "eject"button, and nothing happens,
* broken - the motor that spins the disks is not working, i.e., no "whirring" sound,
* broken - the "data" cable between the HDD and the motherboard is broken,
* the disk-drive itself is "dead", and cannot be accessed.

Replace the "dead" disk-drive, and you should be able to reinstall Windows.

Ibm bladeCenter -S storage one hdd offline .how to forcely online

It probably is "offline" because it is "dead", and thus cannot go "online".

Replace the disk-drive, and the replacement should go "online", automatically.

Computer has become very very slow. Reformated and reloaded operating system took forevery to reload (2 hours). Is this a hard disk problem

It _could_ be a disk-drive problem -- excessive "retry" operations within the disk-drive, while trying to write data to the disk-drive, or while trying to read from the disk-drive.

Search online for "Hitachi Drive Fitness" testing software, and run it.

If the disk-drive is "out-of-warranty", consider replacing it, before it completely "fails".

Hi, I have just replaced a drive in an IBM DS4700 and now it is saying the drive is uncertified. Is there anything I can do?

Get IBM to come out and swap the drive, I think it costs about £1600. For an extra £400 they will send an engineer out to swap it, from what I can gather it looks like you need it!!!

Its not Dececting

The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: the disk drive is broken...

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

The SQL disks are slow responces in windows cluster

This issue seems a bit dated: basically in short, in the group cluster that has the disks failing to come fully online, it seems one of the resources which has dependencies. This dependency is failing and causing the rest of the resources to fail and disks do not go online. fix the dependency or remove it as a dependency and the disks will come on line.
use cluster manager to locate the resources and select properties and then .. interrogate it and remove the dependency for now. Once removed ... then bring the other resources online.
