This means that the hard disk is dying - copy all your data from it while you still can then replace it and reinstall windows.

Hello I have a 1TB HDD that I'm trying to clone to a 3TB HDD. Why is it every time I start the cloning process right after it hits 1% it say Clone failed.

Without knowing how you are doing this, I cannot comment as to why unless there are hdd errors or the new hdd is not initialised.

System error hpdesignjet 1050c error 09B300 007A0EED

09Bxx0 errors relate to hdd read fail,#
there are two causes for this -1) the Hdd has indeed failed
2) the power supply in particular the hdd power supply(part of the main PSU) has failed- easiest way to see is connect a diferent hdd to the machine and see if it spins up if it does replace the hdd if it does not then replace the psu

Hp L1908w disk problems,me open my destop and it say a disk read error to solve?

This is a sign that maybe a HDD failing? You may need to replace the HDD but first maybe try a Defragment and a disk cleanup? If you do this and it still giving read errors than you will have to replace the HDD with a new one. You should immediately backup all you want and after you install a new HDD transfer all the backed up data to the new one.

Will not boot up

From what you describe, you may have a HDD failure. The Inspiron 8000 has a serial bus for the IDE drives and if one drive fails neither will work (If HDD Fails, the CD drive will not read)
Reseat both the HDD and Optical drive and make sure they are detected in BIOS. If HDD is not detected, replace it.

I cannot boot my system i had a problem that smart command

SMART Stands for Self Monitoring Analsys and Reporting Technology that can predict about a probable hardware disaster in the near future and it helps you to analyse the health status of your HDD. Once you run the command and if it fails it gives you the option F1 and F2. Try to continue by pressing F2.

This should work and take you further. If it doesnt work and returns the error... possibly your HDD is under Risk. Try to work on safe mode if it goes for a boot. But all these symptoms shows a criticality on HDD and this indicates that backup your HDD and get a new one restored with this data which is backed up.

You should also see if the HDD led is flickering and that can always be a positive sign that your HDD is getting read. But no confirmation on if the Disk is read successfully or it is damaged.

Good Luck.

Evesham Axis RD A-List failed HD - can't boot from CD

Sounds like the hdd is failing. Do you have a restore disk or OS disk? Or was there a restore partition on the failing hdd? Either way, it looks like your going to need a new hdd and at least a restore or OS disk. Not real familiar with the Evesham Axis.

My Memorex 320 gb ultra travel drive is not working correctly; when I search a file, it finds it but then some of them don't open and I can hear a clicking sound on the disk like if it was searching for...

Sounds like the HDD is failing or failed. Try removing side cover to your PC (Switched off and unplugged from power supply) remove the CD cable / plug it into the ext HDD (Dismantled) boot into Windows.
If the PC cannot read the drive then it is damaged with loss of all files. If you can read it, I suggest you transfer backed up files to your PC before it fails completely.

Trying to run recovery disc on computer and cd rom isn't reading

I see this as one of 2 possible failures.
  1. Optical drive failing. Take out the Hard drive, see if the recovery disk, or another bootable disk will boot. If no change, replace the optical drive.
  2. Hard Drive failing. If the system will boot to a CD with the HDD out or if replacing the optical drive has no change, then the HDD is the next logical failure point.
