With a bad hard drive you have a few options. If you have valuable data on the drive that you want to retrieve, you could make a BartPE disk from a working PC. Their website has step by step instructions on how to do this. this way you can boot to a CD and browse around your files and copy them over to an external hard drive, finger drive, or floppy disk. Just google BartPE. Alternatively you can go buy another drive from bestbuy, install it as a master with the defect as slave. Install windows on the new and once it's all up try to browse the old drive to recover the files.

If there is nothing on the drive you want, toss it, buy a new one and reload windows.

I got my motherboard changed in October and my computer won't boot up "disk boot failure 0" could I have the same problem again? I don't have a disk - dell dimension C521


The motherboard is not the problem.
Your hardisk is the problem.
See if your hardisk is detected during boot up procedure.
If it does... Run again your Windows XP CD installer and repair your operating system.
Having "Disk Boot Failure" error means the boot system of you operating system is corrupted.
If your hardisk is not detected... you better check if the power supply connector on your hardisk is secured and not loose..
If still not detected.. your hardisk crashed and need to be replace.

Monitor says: "Out of range"


This means that a video signal has been detected but it is beyond the range for display. As an example, if the monitor can only display 1024x768 and you send it a signal at 1280x1024, you will get that message. Try to downsize the display settings on your computer system until the monotor works.

Sometimes this can be even simpler. Put in your Windows CD and boot to safe mode command prompt and type fixmbr. This will repair your master boot record for your primary boot harddisk. Eject the windows CD and reboot and see if it fixes your problem.

  • Your computer Should Boot now.

Harddisk not detected


Hi, I think that your os has been crashed. So insert your disk and boot your system and check that your BIOS will boot from CD (Boot preference - CD ROM). And install a fresh copy of your os. Let me know the result.

Hi I am fairly good with computers but i dont know how to fix this problem. My advent 7113 laptop turns on the power light comes on and they the fan starts but am not sure if the harddisk boots. Then...


It sounds like Either the onboard video card or the LCD controller has gone bad. To verify which one connect a monitor to the VGA adapter on the back of the Laptop. You may also have to hit a key combination to swap displays (Usually <Fn> + <F5> but may be different the keys usually have an offset that indicates its function.

If the Monitor displays the same black and white anomaly then the vid card went bad, if it displays a normal screen your LCD controller is faulty.

Either problem would likely need service from an experienced technician

Hope this helps
