Hi,

first download and install Drive Rescue . Click on Find lost drive, select the drive you miss and click "find logical drives". Now you should access all of your files. Save them to another drive and format the hard disk.

hope to be helpful

How to install windows it's showing there is no hard disk in the system pls help me


If the BIOS does not detect the hard disk, then reseat the hard disk and then check the BIOS again.
The hard disk maybe faulty, if so you need a replacement.
If the BIOS detects the hard disk and you are installing 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.

there are no drivers required for a hard drive.
Windows 7 should automatically detect the new hard drive and it should show up in disk management to format or prompt you to format.
Check your cable connections again.
Otherwise your new hard drive may be DOA. Return it to the store that you purchased from.

Hi, when I power up my laptop, it get a message saying boot from a bootable device, if I click on any function key when the logo appers the system will boot into windows


It appears your hard disk has failed. Go to the BIOS configuration and check if the BIOS detects the hard disk, if not then re-seat the hard drive and then check the BIOS again.
If the BIOS still cannot detect the hard disk then it is faulty.
To get your computer working again, replace the hard disk, install Windows on the new hard disk plus the motherboard's device drivers and your programs.

My laptop does not boot. it always ask for a cd to boot but i already reformat it.someone told me that it is a hard disk problem and advice me to replace my hard drive.


When the computer starts it flashes up press f2or delete or some other key to enter setup. Go through the settings and there should be one that will allow you to change the boot device. It sounds to me like it is set to boot from the cd rom drive only. Change it to boot from the hard drive and save changes to CMOS and restart the computer. The computer should now boot from the hard drive.

A disk read error occured and keep on re-start


Please check that the hard disk is connected properly. If you know that the hard disk is working, check whether it is detected or not. If it's not detected, you'll need to recheck it again with the power supply. If possible, try it to another Laptop so that you can make sure that Hdd isn't the culprit. In case it's detected and the problem still persists, repair the operating system installation, this will definitely solve your problem. Good luck.

It doesnt detect my harddrive and it causes windows to crash...how do i fix it?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then probably the hard disk is faulty.
To check if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect the hard drive or open the folders and files, then the hard disk is faulty.
To get your computer operating again, replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

I cannot get my gateway gt5028 to reboot,, i have no disc,, people tell me yiu can reboot and get computer back to normal without one,, help!!


there are 2 things about reboot that is the reboot from the bios or reboot from the windows... if you mean you can't reboot and there are no hard disk as your primary hard disk try to check if the bios detected the hard disk. by pressing Delete key when you start to reboot the computer... make sure there are someone with you who knows something about the computer BIOS. if not keep in touch.. in Main menu in BIOS you will find If the computer detected the hard disk, if not detected try to check the IDE/SATA cable or Power Cable of your hard disk. Check if that hard disk is the first boot in the Boot section of the BIOS, if not then change the Hard Disk as your first boot.. That will help you boot your computer properly in windows..
