Try installing norton ghost or acronis to clone your HD. it will copy every data on you HD and transfer it to your new HD exactly the way it was. you'll never have to install your OS anymore. enjoy!

You can buy Hard drive enclosures to put the HD in and do it yourself- it will most likely set you back $50-$100, for what you're looking for.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Description=hard+drive+enclosure&x=0&y=0

however, this is assuming your PC can actually still detect and read the disk. Check your BIOS- does it still show up there? if it does, you may have a chance. If it doesn't, or if this message is being displayed BIOS side and won;t let you boot at all- sorry, the disk is dead. You can probably find a good hard drive recovery company (sorry, I can't reccommend any, as i've never looked into it myself), however, there are some things even they can't do, and their rates are usually pretty pricey. (several hundred dollars, usually.).

    whoops. templarius's suggestion would work too- providing you have the space, and the three-headed IDE cable to begin with. (if my memory serves me right, prebuilts generally only provide the 2-head arrangement, good for one device only.

There should be no cost if you conect your new hardrive like slave on your motherboard and then transfer the data from your present to your new HD


Have fun dude

How do I get my acer aspire xc600 to stop giving me "error reading drive disk or drive disk failed" messages?


You are probably not doing anything wrong it sounds as if you have a motherboard problem a quick test is to put the old hard drive into another computer if it works in the good computer it more than likely the motherboard in your computer that is failling

Sony external hard drive: Error message "USB Device Not Recognized"


It is quite likely the drive is failed. If it is quite new it should still be within warranty. Return it to your place of purchase and get them to confirm it's condition. If the drive prooves faulty they should repair/replace it for you.

Check cable connection..! PXE-E63: Error while initializing the NIC PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS

1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Thanks for Choosing

Hard drive auto reboots every few seconds and will not connect with pc.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help

Upon booting I get this error. for realtek


PXE means Pre-Boot Execution Environment. You see this message when the laptop trying to boot from a remote server using the network card. If you didn’t see the PXE-E61 message before, it means that the network card was listed after the hard drive in the boot order (you can set the order in BIOS) and the laptop booted directly from the hard drive. Now, when the hard drive has failed, the laptop cannot detect it and tries to boot from the next available device – the network card. Your laptop is not configured to boot from a remote server using the network card, that’s why you are getting PXE-E61 Media test failure error.

You have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operating system?

When I start my computer I get an error message: Disk I/O error.


The hard drive in that PC is failing or has failed. The drive controller is failing or failed. The drive controller on the motherboard is failing or failed.

Too many possiblilities but you should get the drive looked at first.

And I would suggest not truning that PC on anymore until you do so
