The cooling fan is worn out and it vibrates. That vibration is lethal to the hard disk so its protection system has temporarily put it in a safe state. The only way to fix that is to replace the fan and this is a job for a repair shop.

Cant find disk to boot


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.

My Sony Vaio Laptop (Model VPCEE42FX) isnt working, it turns on, but then it says "Operating System Not Found." Can you help me ?


The laptop cannot find the Operating system which is installed on your hard disk drive. Go into the BIOS (setup menu) and see if the hard disk drive is present. If it is then your might need to reload the OS ( operating system software,i.e. Winodws Vista, Windows 7 ). If the BIOS does not detect your hard drive then either your hard drive is defective or the motherboard has a problem.

Hi,

Your laptop has a feature/utility that turns off the hard drive when bumped to something or move. This feature is to protect the hard drive from data corruption and hard drive failure. It is like a shock sensor. Check for the software of that feature and see if you can decrease the sensitivity.

Hope this helps.

If the Windows installation CD cannot detect the hard drive to install Windows then the hard disk could be faulty or it may only need reseating.
First - remove the hard drive and connect it back into the laptop.
2nd - Boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS configuration and check if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the hard drive is detected then proceed with the Windows installation.
If the hard drive is not detected in the BIOS then most likely the hard drive is faulty.
In this case you need to replace the hard drive before you can install Windows.

The BIOS in your laptop has detected the SATA hard drive as "Fixed Disk 0" this is normal.
If you are trying to install Windows XP on this laptop, XP will not detect this hard drive because it does not have the SATA driver included in the XP installation CD.
For instruction on installing XP on your laptop with a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Your hard drive may have failed.
I suggest you remove your hard drive and re-connect it to your laptop to make sure it is make proper connection. Boot up and go into the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected.
If the hard disk is not detected then most likely the hard disk has failed.
To get your laptop working, you will need to purchase a new hard disk and install Windows on the new hard disk plus the Pavilion device drivers and your programs,
You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP orVista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click onthis link to download the drivers: -

My Inspiron 6000 no safe mode available - just blue screen


You can try repairing the windows by using a windows bootable cd, but yes I would recommend you to save your important data first for that you'll be needing a box which looks like this thumb_case3.jpg You can get this easily from the market, just say I need a External Enclosure for a Laptop Hard Disk Drive. But remember to match the type of your hard disk. It is better to take the hard disk with you.

Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me any further.
