Check the cable(s) and jumper, all are connected as per the requirement. goto BIOS and detect the HDD from there, swap the HDD to any pc and try, if unable to detect then you may have to replace with new one.

HP 530 won't see hard drive


Are you sure there is no usb / CD in the computer?

Try pressing F8 when the computer boots and select the HDD as the boot device.

If this works, you'll need to reset the boot order in the CMOS / BIOS.

Gateway mp8708 s/n t23691006485 showing disk error won't boot just shows disk error help me


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Acer 5534 won't go into recovery mode using boot disk. I get a disk read error, press ctrl+alt+del then reboots to black screen.


Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Are there any noises coming from the pc when performing the recovery? Was it doing this previously? Most disk read errors point to the hard drive.

My laptop wnt boot up no matter safe mode or the other start menu's what am i to do


Do you have an external CD or DVD drive to plug into it? If so, and if you have a Windows installation disk, you can boot from the disk and do a chkdsk scan on the drive to make sure the drive doesn't have errors. If the drive doesn't have errors, you'll need to do a rebuild of the operating system.

If the drive did have errors and chkdsk says it fixed them, try booting into windows again.

If it still won't boot, do the OS rebuild.

If it reports there is no hard drive, you've got bigger issues and will need to have the unit repaired.

I was given a Compaq d530 cmt and it won't boot says non-system disk or disk error hoe can I install unbunto on it as a spare


Download Ubunto onto a disc (as an image) and then you will need to boot to the disc in order to begin the installation process. With HP computers (including Compaqs), right after the computer is turned on, press F12 to bring up the units boot menu. Select the optical drive and then start the installation.

My computer won't turn on properly. It keeps saying disk error press control alt delete. When I do it just says it again and again. It won't load and turn on.


First you should check if there is any disk on your cd room, if there is any disk you should remove the disk from the cd room, if there is no disk the possibility is your hard drive getting error
Press f2 or delete to enter your bios set up system
Look for boot menu
Set the first boot as a HDD and the second boot as cd room and disable the third boot
Save and Exit the setting
if your computer still won't load you need to reinstall your windows
insert windows cd and go to set up again by pressing f2 or delete button
Set the first boot as cd room then the second boot as HDD
Save and exit the setting again
When the message press any key to boot from cd appears you should press the space bar or another key
Then just follow the instruction of formatting
