II replace the hard drive in my sony vio all in one desktop, wil that correct all errors


It depends on the type of errors you are experiencing. Replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system may resolve a great deal of software related problems, including issues with the operating system. And it will also resolve any hardware related issues that you had with the original hard drive. But replacing the drive won't help with other hardware related problems such as motherboard, ram, power supply and optical drive issues.

How do i fix my hp decktop hard drive please let me know ok i need help .


When you get an error message relating to hard drive then the fault could be a configuration or a faulty hard drive.
1st go to the BIOS configuration and check the BIOS setting for the hard drive - Does the BIOS detect the hard drive?
This problem could be a problem with the data connections to the hard drive.
If the hard drive is not detected, turn off the computer and open the case and remove the data cable from the hard drive and re-insert the cable back into the hard drive, also on the other end of this cable, remove the data cable from the motherboard connector and re-insert the cable. Then reboot the computer.
If the hard disk does not spin up and the computer does not detect the hard drive, then the hard disk is probably faulty.
To get the computer operating again, the hard disk needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk plus the HP desktop's device drivers and your programs.
Please let me know if this solves your problem and if you need further assistance.

What would be a good hard drive to replace my bad old hard drive


http://www.ebuyer.com/product/122071
Or a HD very simlar would be the best hard drive for you at the moment. If you need something a little bigger, you need to make sure the hard drive is a IDE hard drive, otherwise it won't work in your system.

Glad to help

Dell DV051 - message no boot device


Go into your BIOS by pressing F2 and see if the hard drive is being recognized in there. If it is then reset defaults in the BIOS and reboot and see if the computer will boot back into windows. If it doesn't then you'll need the discs to restore the computer back to factory defaults. If the hard drive is not being recognized in the BIOS then make sure the hard drive is hooked up properly. IF it is and its still not being recognized in the BIOS then the hard drive is bad.

At that point then you'll need to replace the hard drive and use your discs to restore the computer back to factory defaults.

You can replace the hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. Best bet would be a 250GB .
Hard drive have come down in prices, you should be able to get a 250 GB. for less then $100.
Western Digital ansd Seagate are my preference.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Removing/replacing dvd rom drive


Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.

Hard drive replacement w/system restore disc


After installing the new hard drive, you'll need to boot the computer from the recovery disk and follow the instructions to format the drive and install windows. You'll also need to install drivers from the driver disk after Windows is up and running. If the computer won't boot from the recovery disk, you'll need to access the "setup" utility and set the CDROM drive as the first boot device. To access the setup utility, press the Delete key after turning on the power. I hope this helps!
