Ex. hard drive will not open windows say windows will not even formate


If windows will not format the hard drive then the HDD is probably bad. Depending on the operating system you're trying to load, if it's Win XP or earlier you can still use DOS to format the drive then try loading windows onto the drive. Windows will want to format the drive again when you load the disk and that's ok because it will format the disk from FAT32 to NTFS. If it still fails then You more than likely have a bad disk that cannot be written to. One other thing you can try is to boot to command prompt and type in sfc /scannow Make sure you have windows inserted in CD drive. This will check your system if Windows is already loaded on the drive but you're having a hard time booting to it. Hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 570 loud hard drive hum.....(?)


Hi,
Any strange noise like excessive clicking, grinding, some weird sounds etc. actually indicate a failing hard drive.
Failing hard drives often show warning signs of their imminent demise. If you're lucky enough to see or hear one of these signs, stop what you're doing and immediately back up your data. They say prevention is better than cure so if your computer's hard disk is making some strange clicking sounds, BACK UP YOUR DATA IMMEDIATELY (As the drive is not operating smooth and may fail anytime).
After making backup of your important data on CD/DVD or External Drive, you may scan the drive for surface errors, format it and see if it works properly or not. It would be better if you seek professional assistance for examination of the disk.

Hard drives are mostly under warranty for at least one year. Claim warranty, if possible.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Before formatting my laptop i transwereed all my data to my external hard disk. after formatting when i trnswering the data from hard disk to laptop the error comes redundancy check error mostley in...


Hi jrawat7,

A Cyclic Redundancy Check, known as a CRC error, often occurs when you're attempting to transfer data to a hard drive. It's most commonly caused by an interruption in the recording process, but also can be a sign that you've got problems with your hard drive or optical drive.

Here are some steps fixed the issue:

Rule out problems with your computer Start by Defragmenting your disk. Click the Windows or Start button in the lower-left corner of your computer screen and select Control Panel. Click the System and Security icon. Choose Administrative Tools, then Defragment your hard drive. This will clear up clutter on your hard drive that could be causing the error

Use the CHKDSK program in Windows to see if there are other problems with your hard drive. Click the Windows or Start button and select My Computer or Computer. Right-click the drive with the CRC error. Choose Properties, then select the Tools tab. Click Check Now. Make sure the program will fix disk errors by checking the top square in the dialog box. Click Start.

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

Trouble Reloading Start-Up Disk on Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301


Please try changing the HDD. If same thing happens the problem may be with ur O/s Cd or the Mother board
Please let me know this is used machine or New one. If new one please take a different O/S cd and install it.

If you are installing XP and your HDD is SATA then you need sata drivers.

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
