Sometimes twisting the notebook sharply will 'bump' start it.
If it works, copy important files to a USB drive or another computer quickly!

Check hard disk is seated into its socket and not come loose.

Cara mematikan mode smart pada aspire3680


If this is about hard disk drive SMART (Self Monitoring) warning. Acer Aspire 3680 BIOS does not have an option to turn off this warning. Basically, your hard drive is dying and you need to replace it with a good working hard disk drive because sooner or later your hard disk drive will stop working. You can clone your hard disk drive using an hdd cloning utility such a Farstone Clone Drive.

Laptop not working Packard bell message on screen says BOOTMGR is missing


HI

I Think the laptop is trying to read the hard drive to boot up and its got a problem reading it

it may be worth turning off the laptop unplug the power core remove the hard drive from the base of the laptop usually only one or two screws to take off the cover and normally quite easy to remove

then try to start up the laptop
then turn off again
give the hard drive a quick blow over the connections
replace the hard drive
and try to boot up again

if this dont help

press power up key as well as the F8 key
this will hopefully take you into the repair options
and try the last good known configuration
or
repair my computer

if this does not work then the hard drive may be corrupt of dead

which is not good new if you havent done any backup disks or have any recovery disks
or a operating system install disk

hope you get it sorted

When i switch the laptop, i hear a knocking sound from hard disk and the computer displays non - system disk or error disk plz help


Good Day Kawindwe!

I am sorry but I think the hard disk is on its last leg. A knocking sounds is the first symptoms of faulty hard disk. It is better to replace it.




The non-system disk error is displayed when the CMOS BIOS failed to detect the hard disk.

There is a small chances of making your hard disk work again. It worked for me before maybe it might work with you too.

First, turn off your Laptop. Remove the power supply adaptor from your Laptop. Remove the battery. Press and hold the power on button for at least 5 seconds to discharge remaining volts on your unit. After awhile, return the battery, plug in the power supply adaptor and turn on Laptop. See if that recognize again your hard disk.

If the first did not fix it, try this one. Turn off your Laptop. Disconnect your hard disk and then reseat the connectors properly. Then, turn on your device. Did that fix your problem?

Kawindwe, in case that fixed it, I recommend you back up your files cause the hard disk will not last that long.

When I connect it to my laptop (or ANY other computer/laptop) the blue light on the external hardrive turns on and I can feel that it is working, but it simply doesnt get read, the computers dont recognise...


Open the enclosure.
Separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.
Connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files.

If not, search online for a professional 'data recovery service' -- for a FEE, they can repair a disk-drive just long-enough to copy your files onto a new disk-drive.

When i turn it on it has a disk read error occurred message


The Toshiba cannot find a boot disk, this problem could be caused by the BIOS could not detect the hard drive because has lost the configuration or the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if it has detected the hard disk and some BIOS have a utility to test the hard disk, if this is available then run the hard disk test.
Another way to test the hard disk, remove the hard disk from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see it as and external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard drive is OK and the fault is most likely the laptop's motherboard.
If the computer cannot detect or open the files on the external USB adapter then the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to be replaced in the Toshiba and Windows installed to get the laptop working again.

My laptop doesnt work anymore suddenly!


This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.

Laptop screen wont work.


Assuming you don't have 2 drives installed in your laptop then you will need to get a windows system disk or install disk and boot up with this in the laptop to load windows whatever into your hard drive and set your laptop up to run on the new drive. Here is Microsoft's tutorial on how to install and set up windows:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/default.mspx
Hope this helps you.

My disk drive has stopped working.


Go into the BIOS of your laptop and see if your drive is being recognized in there. If its not then turn off the laptop take the drive out of the laptop and reseat it and then turn it back on and go back into the BIOS and hopefully it will be recognized there. Try using a boot disk and see if you can get your laptop to boot off of that when you first turn it on. If you can get it to boot up off of that then you know the drive is good and its a problem with the OS. Could be a virus, trojan. Also try swapping out the drive with a known good one if you can and see if that does the trick for you.
