If the laptop cannot boot up then to retrieve your data then remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port. This computer will detect this as an external storage device. You can then click on this device and open the folders and files to copy and backup your data files.

Simple test: try to boot from a Linux Live-CD, one like

If you can then something is wrong with the hard disk - try to access them in Linux and see if all the data is still there and not corrupted. If the access is difficult and full of errors then you will need a new hard disk.
If you can't access it even with the live-CD then the motherboard of your laptop (more precisely its chipset) has failed and it will have to be replaced.

Could not start asus f3jc in safe mode


Looks like you have a major problem. Do not reformat the hard drive with a new system restore/install. This will wipe all your data off the hard drive.
FIRST STEP: If the hard drive is still operational, you will probably still be able to get to all your useful data and make a copy of it. Then you can perform a system restore/install and transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

If you need to access the data on the laptop in a hurry, then the easiest thing to do is get access to another (2nd) computer, take out the hard drive from the failed laptop, put it into a portable drive carrier with USB connection (you can buy this from a computer shop) and access the data on the hard drive that way via the 2nd computer. That can be a real help when your laptop is not working and I have used it on several occasions when I or my customers have had a broken/failed laptop.

SECOND STEP: Once you have copied all your data that you need from the failed laptop's hard drive, you can put it back in the laptop and perform a system restore/install and transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

Good luck!

I need reset


Looks like you have a major problem.
If the notebook can not start from a fresh reboot, then you may need to restore the entire system from either the restore partition on the hard drive, or from the supplier's Restore CD-ROM (disk).
Be warned that a full system restore will "wipe" all your data from the hard drive.

Before you do that:
FIRST STEP: If the hard drive is still operational, you will probably still be able to get to all your useful data and make a copy of it. Then you can perform a system restore/install and transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

If you need to access the data on the laptop in a hurry, then the easiest thing to do is get access to another (2nd) computer, take out the hard drive from the failed laptop, put it into a portable drive carrier with USB connection (you can buy this from a computer shop) and access the data on the hard drive that way via the 2nd computer. That can be a real help when your laptop is not working and I have used it on several occasions when I or my customers have had a broken/failed laptop.

SECOND STEP: Once you have copied all your data that you need from the failed laptop's hard drive, you can put it back in the laptop and perform a system restore/install and after that transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

Good luck!

Toshiba mk2035gss HD, sony vaio laptop. when starting the laptop, the vista loading page with come up, act like its working and cycle back to a restart. tried starting in safe mode, and other solutions,...


Sounds like the drive may be starting to die. If your comfortable with Linux you may want to try using a live cd and a tool like ddrescue to copy the drive.

Heat can cause problems with the drives as well. Sometimes cooling the drive off in the fridge before copying the data can be enough to get it off.

Also test the RocketFish adapter with another drive if possible. I have one and it works good, but it can't hurt to rule it out as well.

If the data is really important there are also data recovery centers that can get it pretty much no matter how bad off it is, but it can cost a lot of money (a few hundred to thousand depending on the hard drive state).

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

My 1tb passport wont allow me to copy and paste from it nor will it let me open certain folders. My videos sometimes wont play. I had to copy and paste the videos to my computer in order to play them. ...


Hello,
if you are using USB 2 and a Laptop, the issue might be power related. If possible, try the drive with the Laptop power plugged in and if no success, try with a desktop computer.
If you are using USB 3 or are still having issues with the drive even when plugged to a Desktop with USB 2, a surface test could help you narrow down the issue to some bad sectors on the hard drive.
Western digital offers a free utility to scan hard drives which available for download on their website and sometimes included with their products.
Tell me if you need help to get this software.
Once the test concluded, if there are too many bad sectors, your disk will not be reliable anymore and it is better to change it. If it is under warranty, you can contact Western Digitals for that.
If there are just a few, the utility can try to "fix them", and if it succeeds, you will be able to use the drive again, but might lose some chunks of data.
In all cases, I advise to always have a backup of your data and if there are critical files on this drive that you need but still cannot access after all those steps, you will need to consider a Data recovery company.
Regards,

Disk error accorured will not let you boot up laptop


Disk errors can occur for many reasons but typically due to age of the drive. The average life span of a hard drive is only a few years, despite the fact that we can usually get a decade or so out of them if the conditions are right.

Another possibility is that your drive had been exposed to something online that has caused data corruption. Another; moisture can significantly damage a HDD. Another yet is that excessive G forces, such as dropping the system, can also cause damage to the HDD (and other internal goodies).

The good news is that there are pro computer shops that can, in most cases, recover the data that exists on an inaccessible drive. The cost is usually between $50.00 and $100.00 USD and is well worth the cost if facing the loss of extremely important data. This can usually be accomplished within an hour.

The bad news is that you're looking at the cost of replacing the drive, reloading an operating system and setting up drivers again.

If there are errors on the disk that translate into bad sectors (areas of the drive that are physically damaged), it's still possible to reuse the drive, though I wouldn't suggest doing so. Bad sectors are a tell-tail sign that the drive is nearing the end of its life and continued use will most likely result in frustration when even more data is lost as even more sectors die.

You can attempt to recover the data yourself if you've another computer. You'll need either another laptop with an external drive port or a desktop with an external laptop drive port plugged in in order to access the drive. Just because the OS won't boot doesn't necessarily mean that the data can't be accessed.

... and someone once said that computers were going to make our lives simpler and more efficient. LOL. ;)

Note: before replacing the drive, have it removed from your laptop and installed into another to confirm that it is, indeed, lifeless. If it is, carry on with either having the data professional extracted or personall accessed via another computer. If not and it boots up on another laptop, you may have to investigate a possible IDE or SATA port malfunction (depending on how old your laptop is) or... gasp... an even more serious motherboard issue.

They say 400 requst


Bad 400 request is usually caused when the server thinks the data being received is malformed. Or you computer thinks the data being received is malformed. It's most often caused by a URL being mistyped so make sure that it's 100% correct. Also it can be caused due to a programming mistake on the website you are trying to access. Sometimes the only thing you can do is let the company know of the problem so they can fix their web server.

Boot manager


if this is a boot manager is missing on boot it could deal with either a bad Hard drive or system files/registry corruption on boot. An easy way to get your files is use a BDE program that can view your files off your computer without physically loggin into windows. Second way to do it is take your hard drive out and put it into an external enclosure and access your data that way. If you can get into DOS or command try to type in FIXMBR that fixes the master boot record and could sometimes fix the boot issues. After you get your Data I would recommend Running a program called DFT, its free and you can google it and burn it to a cd and boot off of it. This program will test your hard drive and if it passes a full advanced test then you have no hardware problems and should continue to perform an Operating system Install or Full system recovery with factory supplied disks. Hope this helps your question.
