Sounds like you have a defective peripheral. Disconnect everything except the hard drive, memory, and monitor and see if it boots. If it does then one of the disconnected items is at fault. If you have multiple memory sticks, just go with one at a time and see what happens.

Unless reinstall disk is defective it should work unless there is a hardware issue.

I have an Acer Asper 1 notebook that had some issues during a regular scan, fixed problem and had virus protection. Went to start pc it loaded a black screen and said media problem, and hard drive problem....


If there is no display, try resetting your bios or cmos. Then check by turn it on, if it's still the same check your system ram, unplug your ram and clean the pin using hard eraser then brush it using small paint brush. In case you have two ram check 1 by 1 plugging onto your dimm slot. Causes of no display are defective memory, defective motherboard chipset due to overheat and defective LCD. Have a good day!

My computer says that the hard drive is not inserted correctly.what do I do


Open your computer casing and look for the ribbon cable attached to your hard disk drive and motherboard. Unplug the ribbon cable from the motherboard and hard disk drive. Then put it back again the cable and observe, if the problem is still the same. Next part is to unplug the ribbon cable from motherboard and hard disk drive and observe for the sound comes from your hard drive. Try also switching your ribbon cable into another IDE ports.Normal hard disk drive usually have a normal sound but the defective hard disk drive have a mechanical noisy sound. Have a good day.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...


Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus

    My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?

    Question

    My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?

    How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?

    It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

    Answer
    For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:

    If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

    If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48

    The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:

  • Windows 9x and ME reference Answer ID: 3076
  • Windows 2000 Answer ID: 880
  • Windows XP Answer ID: 3361
  • Windows Vista Answer ID: 3844
  • Macintosh Answer ID: 492


    For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.

    For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.

    SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.

    If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.

    Error 0x400 100 130000 1002 is showing and I can't even open the pc


    Error 0x400 100130000 1002

    This issue persists if the hard drive has bad sectors.
    Run a Hard drive test in BIOS and check if you receive 'Read Failure' it is shows hard drive is defective.
