Either:
* no power reaching the hard-disk
* the "data" cable is no longer connected to the hard-disk and/or to the motherboard
* the "spinning" part of the hard-disk is no longer spinning
* the "electronics" part of the hard-disk has failed.

Take the computer to a qualified computer technician, for trouble-shooting, and possibly a replacement of the disk-drive.

Is the disk-drive still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty to get a replacement disk-drive.

Disk read error


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.

How do i change bios settings on a laptop that wont let me passed the hdd password


BIOS passwords on a laptop would be especially tricky to override, especially on a laptop, you will have to take the laptop to a service provider for the specified laptop brand, and have them wipe/replace the chip that contains the password. Hope this helps.

Why is my hard disk drive indicator light always blinking on my Sony Vaio Laptop? My laptop reads cds and dvds fine, it is just annoying to always see it blinking.


This is perfectly normal. Your hard-disk indicator light is always blinking because your hard-disk is constantly being used by the operating system. Windows and other applications are performing operations in the background which require both reading from and writing to the hard-disk regardless of whether you are doing anything or not.

You only need to worry when the hard-disk light STOPS blinking . . . permanently!

A Disk read error on boot means your hard disk has or is about to fail. to verify this you can try to fun a hard disk testing utility such as Seagate SeaTools, Western Digital Data Lifeguard, Hitachi DFT. These are all freeware.

My acer 7520 opens with an error reading NVIDIA boot agent 249.0542, then reads PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable, PXE-M0F exiting NVIDIA boot agent.


This error message could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
Reseat the hard disk to see if the problem is fixed.
If not go into the BIOS settings and check if the BIOS can detect the hard disk.
If the hard disk is not detected then remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If the this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. Then the Acer needs a replacement hard disk and Windows installed together with the laptop's device drivers and programs etc.
