SOURCE: hard disk failure

Hi, assuming the hdd won't finish a format, it is possible that some sectors are damaged. If you still want to try and use the hdd even with these defects, you can try and partition the hdd. Guesstimate at what point the hdd stops responding and really guess where the defects end. With this info, partition the hdd into 3 with the middle containing the defective sectors. Format only the first and third partitions. For simplicity, Win98 might be easier to work with rather than XP. Hope this be of some help. Do post again and let us know how things turn up.

SOURCE: how to unlock the master password

You will need to reset/clear the Cmos. If you have lost your password, depending on manufacturer, you might be able to reset the HDD password without knowing the original password, but this is not usually the case.

Its a simple procedure of shorting a set of jumpers on the mainboard. You should find instructions for How-To in the user manual for the mainboard. If you don't have the manual, you can usually do a search online and download A PDF version. If you cant find a manual, you can try removing the cmos battery from the mainboard. Make sure all power is disconnected befor you attempt this. If you use the battery option, you will need to leave the battery removed for at least 10 minutes to clear the settings.

Hope this helps FixYa! If you find this information helpful, please leave some positive feedback to let us know.

My restore disk will not recover my toshiba satellite m115


Most likely, assuming your system disc is operational, you need to do a hard disk reset. The easiest way to do this is to delete any partitions that appear while doing the install, and doing a "fresh" install. This removes the partitions that are in the lower level of the hard disk drive. AKA - Low Level Format

Format Toshiba - Canvio Basics 750GB External USB 3.0 for Mac


Salam,
It depends on which machine(s) you want to use your hard drive for! If it should works on PCs (Windows and Linux) you have to format it in exFAT but if will use it only on MAC, it would be better if you use hfs+ (AKA: Mac OS extended journaled - not case sensitive).
And to do dat you need to open Disk Utility (type it in spotlight (use small magnifying glass icon in upper right corner of screen)). In Disk Utility's window, select your External Hard Drive itself (not its partition), go to Partition tab and change its format to anything you want, then click on apply button and wait for progress to be down.
If you want to use hfs+, you may need to chang partition table format to "GUID", and for exFat it needs to be "Master Boot Record"; to change that, use options button down in the same tab that I mentioned above.
PS: No need to say that formatting a drive will erase all data from it, so you need to copy them somewhere else before that.

I purchased a Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500 GB portable hard drive, and plugged it into my MacBook with Mac OS X Tiger. The icon for Toshiba EXT came up on the desktop but wouldn't do anything. The box came...


1 . Open the system drive, usually titled "Macintosh HD." Open Applications, then Utilities and double click the "Disk Utility" program to open it. A window will open giving a list of all the drives currently mounted on the computer.

2. Select the disk that needs to be formatted on the left. It is not possible to format the startup disk unless the system has booted from the Install Disk. It is important to note that formatting the startup disk will permanently erase the data stored on the disk. If you are planning on erasing the startup disk, back up all important files and applications.

3.
Click on the "Erase" tab to the right of the list of drives. The window will now display the options for erasing the hard drive and formatting it to work on the Macintosh computer.

4. Select the Volume Format from the pop-up list. In most cases it's best to leave it at "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as this is the default. This setting is the best option for running Mac OS X. If there are other requirements for the disk, then select the format that best suits your needs.

  • 5. Name the hard drive. Type a name for the disk in the field where it asks for the name. This name will always appear when the disk is mounted on a Macintosh computer.

  • 6. Click the erase button. A window will open asking to verify the erase procedure. Click the erase button in this window to start the process of erasing the disk. Once the process is complete, the drive will appear with the name it was given on the left side of the window with the list of drives and on the desktop of the Macintosh computer.

    After iformat my compaq nx 7400 i can't install xp it showes my that my hard drive contian viurs


    Try a Low level format. click the link below for a software to assist you:

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

    You may also try formating the drive from a floppy disk, if needed. But that may require a little experience of DOS.

    The formating done at the time of installation is a High level format, which may not be effective in all cases.

    I havent used my scan disk cruzer in months and now i plug it into my computer and it lights up but i cant open it up to retrieve or put info on it


    Try cleaning the USB pins with cotton swab to clean all copper connectors in it.

    If the above solution doesn't work, you may need to do Low Level formatting to it.

    Low Level Formatting is very much different than High-Level Formatting (High-level formatting occurs during operating system installation, or when adding a new disk.).

    Low Level Formatting on Windows Environment can only be done through "Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management" or Run "compmgmt.msc".

    On the Computer Management Tools window click on Disk Management under Storage.

    Select which drive your SanDisk Cruzer is located then Right click select Format... from there you may choose what File System to use. i advise you to use Fat for a fixed formatting.

    Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate.
