  • ronkut Jul 28, 2008

    George, thanks for info. I don't know if I can get old video card back it was at a shop. The disk I had won't be accepted by system. Somehow the repair man thinks I have a power or heat problem. Also he said I can't replace my motherboard.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Do a check disk.
Log in Safemode. Start>Run.. type cmd and hit enter.
type chkdsk /f and hit enter.
Your hdd might be failing, let checkdisk fix the bad sectors if it can. Or else u can try this...

Correct this pc problem first of all sounds like you need to formatyour hard drive is a definite cure but before you do this try systemrestore by hitting start then all programs accessories then systemtools then hit system restore and then pick a date that prob startedmight help. Or backup your system another thing but me personally ifyou know how to format your hard drive then that's the way but if youdon't take it to a repair shop and tell them that you need to formatyour hard drive. It is real easy but drivers if not installed correctlycan cause you serious problems.

Disk boot error is just a physical connection problem from hard drive to the motherboard most of the time. Worst is a defective hard drive. Make sure the cables are connected and pushed properly. Try to unplug and re-plug the hard drive cable and be sure to plug the power to the hard drive.

Use the following steps, in sequence, until a solution is found.
Step 1: Begin troubleshooting by removing media and connected devices
v Turn on the computer and remove any CDs and DVDs from their drives using the CD/DVD eject button on the outside of the CD/DVD drive.
v If you are unable to turn on the computer and/or eject the discs, continue using these steps. Remember to remove the discs when the computer has power and you are able to open the drive door.
v Turn off the computer and unplug the power cable from the power outlet.
v With the computer turned off remove all other media and devices that are connected to the computer except for the mouse, monitor, and keyboard. Remove any floppies, printers, USB and FireWire devices, music players, cameras, and flash memory cards.
v With the media and devices removed, turn on the computer.
v If the computer has the same startup problem, leave the devices disconnected, turn off the computer and continue to Step 2. If the computer does not have the same problem, continue using these steps.
v If the computer is able to open Windows after the media and devices were removed, one of these items was preventing Windows from opening. Find which device or media item is causing the problem by reattaching or reinserting each to the computer one at a time. Restart the computer each time a device or media item is added until the startup problem reoccurs.
v Once the media or device that is causing the problem has been identified, do not continue to use it. You can troubleshoot the device or media further. Here are some helpful troubleshooting tips:
v Now that you know which device is contributing to the startup problem, you can search the Internet or visit the manufacturer Support Web site to find more help and information.
v CD, DVD, floppy, or camera cards that are damaged, dirty or scratched may interfere with the startup process. Do not start the computer with media in the drives.
v The computer may try to start an operating system from an external storage device, such as a USB or FireWire drive. You can immediately work around this problem by attaching external storage devices only after Windows has opened.
v Camera cards that are left in printers can cause startup problems. Do not leave camera cards in printers.
v Some printers that have media card readers might contribute to startup problems when used with computers that have older BIOS versions. Updating the BIOS on the computer may resolve the problem. For further information about how to find and download BIOS updates for your HP or Compaq computer, please refer to updating the BIOS.If the problem still exists, continue to the next step.

    Step 2: Continue to identify the type of startup problem

    v Use the following process to identify the type of startup problem that is occurring and to find the information you need to troubleshoot the problem:

    v Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

    v Reset the power: with the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button on the front of the computer for 5 seconds.

    v Plug the power cord into the power outlet.

    v Press the power button to turn on the computer and note what happens.

    v If the computer successfully opens to Windows, the problem may be related to a temporary firmware lockup and may never happen again. Continue using the computer normally. If the problem occurs again, test the computer hardware, such as the hard drives, memory, and processor,Using PC Doctor to help determine if a hardware component has failed.

    v If the computer makes no fan noise, has no lights on the front of the PC, and does not display anything on the monitor , the computer is not distributing power correctly. Turn the computer off, unplug the power cord and refer to the HP support document Troubleshooting Power Supply Issues to troubleshoot power supply problems.

    v If the computer powers on but makes beeping sounds, a keyboard key is stuck, a memory DIMM or hard drive cable is not properly seated, or a hardware failure has occurred. Disconnect the mouse and keyboard and try to start the computer again. If the beeping noise stops, repair or replace the mouse or keyboard that is causing the problem. If a beep code continues, use the HP support document BIOS Beep Codes and Error Message Descriptions to troubleshoot further.

    v If the computer starts but the monitor has a blank screen , the video hardware on the computer may be causing the problem or the monitor may be defective. Use the HP support document The Monitor is Blank after Starting the Computer .

    v If the computer starts to a black screen with only a mouse pointer arrow , a file named lsasse.exe may be damaged. This problem can be resolved by using the HP support document Computer Starts to Black Screen With Only a White Arrow.

    v If an error message displays on the screen , search HP Customer Care using the exact text in the error message and then troubleshoot the problem using any support documents that are found.

    v If you are not able to identify or resolve the problem, continue to the next step to apply further troubleshooting.

    Step 3: Checking if the hard drive is detected

    v First, determine if the hard drive is being detected in the BIOS. Doing so, will help determine if the problem is related to hardware or software:

    v Before you begin, disconnect everything from the computer (such as USB devices, printers, floppy disks, and CD/DVD discs) and leave the mouse, monitor and keyboard connected.

    v Turn on the computer and press the F1 key repeatedly to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.

    v Find the hard drive name from the listing of channels or drives. Look for a name next to Primary Master or from the channel device listing (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on). To help you find the drive name, some common examples of hard drive names are:

    v [MAXTOR 6Y160M0]

    v [SAMSUNG SV8004H]

    v [ST3120026AS]

    v [WDC WD800AB-22CB]



    v Note: - It may be difficult to determine between a hard drive and a CD/DVD drive. In many cases, depending on the version of BIOS, you can select the name of the device next to a channel and press ENTER. Doing so may provide more helpful information that can help you determine if it is a hard drive.

Will your computer boot from a rescue disk or the installation disk for the operating system? As the system was functioning for a few days and then stopped your operating system has somehow been corrupted and mist be reinstalled. You may have tried to install a new program or driver that most likely corrupted your operating system. Think back to what you may have installed that caused this problem. It may have been just a random process failure during the installation. Make sure when you are installing new programs or drivers that no programs are running in the back ground as this will cause problems like you are explaining.
If you can boot from the optical drive, re install your operating system. Make sure you do a fresh install and reformat the hard drive fully. Do not select the quick format option, this may leave troublesome artifacts behind.
If you can not access your optical drive at all, Remove your new video card and replace it with the old one. This should help you regain access to your optical drive. If you need more assistance feel free to ask me here or my email address is geokohler@gmail.com I will call you for free and walk you through any of the other possible solutions to remedy your problems. I hope you find this helpful.

A disk boot error means that there is an operating system load error 90% of the time I have seen.

Fix:

Make sure cables are connected from hard drive to motherboard.

Reinstall Operating System. This will reconfigure the boot.ini file that tells the computer what to load.

If this does not work let me know please.

Thanks, hope this helps ya!

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

I am getting a disk 1/0 error and am not confident at all with computers. How can I fix this so my son can use the computer? My PC is about 6 years old and I only ever used it 9-10 times


Hello,


A..Access the BIOS setup by pressing the key designated for your BIOS at Startup? It can be Del/F1/F2 or whatever and will be shown on Boot Screen before Windows is loaded.
B. Do you have a Win98 Boot Diskette proven to work well in a PC?
If so:
1.With the Win98 Boot Diskette in the Floppy Drive, Restart the PC.
2. Press the BIOS key [Eg:Del] enter BIOS setup
Check for correct YYYY/MM/DD and Time for your Time Zone and proceed to take a good look at the entries of your IDE devices and Floppy Drive with special attention to your Hard Drive(s) in IDE section. If they are all properly identified and normal, you can EXIT the BIOS. [ It does not mattere "Save changes" or "don't save changes" as you have not made any changes.]
3. Wait for Boot Disk to be accessed and Windows Startup Menu to appear with the Options:
1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support.
2.Start Computer without CD-ROM support
3. Help File
4. Select the option,1.Start Computer with CD-ROM support. and ENTER
5. Watch the screen for CD-ROM driver installed successfully" and "Diagnostic Tools " installed and CD-ROM drive letter designation and finally appearance of A:\Prompt
6. At, A:\ Prompt type FDISK and press ENTER.
7. Accespt Y at the bottom of "Large Disk Support" message.
8. At FDISK menu select #4. Display...."
9. Check if the HDD is shown as C: A FAT32 and size.
I am suspecting a problem somewhere here; so if you don't have an Active C: drive press ESC >ESC and remove boot Disk CTRL +ALT+ DELETE to reboot and post back
If you have an Active C: drive, press ESC >ESC to A:\Prompt and type in C: and then at C:\> prompt, type DIR and [ENTER] look for Windows Directories. Here is another Problem area. If you cannot Find any Dir or get an Error, make sure your typing and spacing are OK [ No space after Drive letter for the Command] and if so, ALT+CTRL+DEL or Power Off.

If the problem is same do next .

Alternative Start Mode

1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.
2. Scroll to "Start with last known good configuration.)
3. Press "Enter"

Or
1. Re-boot PC, as it starts tap F8 several times until the windows boot window appears.
2. Scroll to "Safe Mode" (With networking, if you want to access the internet)
3. Press "Enter"

System Restore

1. Go "Start"
2. "All programs"
3. "Accessories"
4. "System tools"
5. "System Restore"
6. ensure "Restore to an earlier time" is checked and click "Next"
7. Select an earlier date when your PC worked well. (Must be a highlighted date)

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl Alt Del to Restart
Cause:
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.

Solutions:

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source




CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.


Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the BIOS / CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error. Additional information on how to enter the BIOS / CMOS setup can be found in document CH000192.

Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file

Windows 2000 users
Windows XP users

Windows 2000 users

If your computer is using Microsoft Windows 2000 and you are encountering the NTLDR error. Create the below boot.ini file on the floppy diskette drive.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files from another computer using the same operating system. Both of these files are located in the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. For example, C:\NTLDR and C:\NTDETECT.COM should be the locations of these files on many computers.

Please keep in mind that these files are hidden system files, if you need additional help with viewing hidden files in Windows please see document CH000516.

Once these files have been copied to a floppy diskette reboot the computer and copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. Below is an example of what commonly should be performed from the A:\> drive.

copy ntldr c:
copy ntdetect.com c:

After the above two files have been copied, remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

Windows XP users
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file

Edit the boot.ini on the root directory of the hard disk drive and verify that it is pointing to the correct location of your Windows operating system and that the partitions are properly defined. Additional information about the boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.

Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32

If you are getting this error message while you are attempting to upgrade to Windows 2000 or Windows XP from Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME running FAT32 please try the below recommendations.
Boot the computer with a Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME bootable diskette.
At the A:\> prompt type:

sys c:

After pressing enter you should receive the "System Transferred" message. Once this has been completed remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer.

New hard disk drive being added

If you are attempting to add a new hard disk drive to the computer make sure that drive is a blank drive. Adding a new hard disk drive to a computer that already has Windows installed on it may cause the NTLDR error to occur.

If you are unsure if the new drive is blank or not try booting from a bootable diskette and format the new hard disk drive.

Corrupt boot sector / master boot record

It's possible your computer's hard disk drive may have a corrupt boot sector and/or master boot record. These can be repaired through the Microsoft Windows Recovery console by running the fixboot and fixmbr commands.

Additional information and help in getting into the Microsoft Windows Recovery console can be found on document CH000627.

Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP

If you have tried each of the above recommendations that apply to your situation and you continue to experience this issue it is possible you may have a seriously corrupted version of Microsoft Windows. Therefore we would recommend you reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

If you are encountering this issue during your setup you may wish to completely erase your computer hard disk drive and all of its existing data and then install Microsoft Windows 2000 / Windows XP. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.

Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable

This issue has been known to be caused by a loose or fault IDE/EIDE cable. If the above recommendation does not resolve your issue and your computer hard disk drive is using an IDE or EIDE interface. Verify the computer hard disk drive cable is firmly connected by disconnected and reconnecting the cable.

If the issue continues it is also a possibility that the computer has a faulty cable, try replacing the hard disk drive cable with another cable and/or a new cable.

Hope this helps ,

disk, are you referring to a cd/dvd disc or are you reffering to a harddrive disk??? If you are reffering to a harddrive disk, then your hard drive is either damaged/ or inproper loose connection or if it s usb/network disk, make sure it is plugged or configuration is changed in the bios menu. If this is a harddrive disk, and after POST or startup, it is giving you this error message, then before we pressume it being damged, check in your bios menu to see if the bios reconized the hard drive disk, if not, your hard drive is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Checksum Error after Bios Upgrade K7VZA


Have you tried resetting the CMOS? Often, after upgrading BIOS you need to clear the CMOS and re-setup to handle the new features. You should have a jumper to clear CMOS, or you can remove the power from the system and remove the battery for a few seconds to clear it.

Let me know if this clears up your issue.

Cannot load operationing system because of fault saying, "no hard disk found in this computer"


Check the data cable. Make sure it is fully connected. (Sometimes they come loose). Check all connected data cable's & power cables within the system. Start with the new drive you installed. Unplug the data cable & re-connect. Follow it to the motherboard & do the same. If no cable seemed loose than replace the hard disk drive's cable with a new cable. Standard 80-conductor Ultra DMA IDE/ATA interface cable. See below;

ab2779a.jpg When you start up the dimension 4600, enter the bios, watch your screen at start up. You will need to press F2 or F10 key to enter the bios.
Once in the bios check that you hard disk drive is shown.
Most bios will list the drive by its model number. If you see the model number of the drive chances are you can save & exit the bios. Button up the case. You should be able to load windows.

Boot failure asus a7v 133 motherboard installed a pci sata raid


Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.

Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.

First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
