Hi I have aproblem of hd. I lost 10 HDD the most of them are from seagat Maxtor and western digital; What is wrong with these manufactrors?
The problem hapen after formating, re install win xp. often I get the message Operating system not found. NDTRL ....something like that
May the problem is the bus, or the sloteK?
or may the cause is jumper positions?
or simply that HDD is dead, and it the case how to fix it?
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.

The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. . Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
When the computer/laptop cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message - "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"
First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem. Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller. If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.
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.
Any 20GB disk-drive is probably _MANY_ years old, definitely "out-of-warranty".
Keep trying to restart your computer, hoping that it will be detected at least once, so that you can do a "final" copy of its files onto your "primary" disk-drive (or write to a few DVD-recordable disks).
All I can think of is to completely remove all ya USB layer, via Device manager, uninstall & remove drivers on everything USB, then reboot, and then after try to plug ya drive in again BUT after it finishes re-installing the USB layer give it 5 mins or so...then do so. GL
1.do your computer works good. 2. your hardisk is detected before running the windows, is it. 3. after getting inside the window, your hard disk is not shown... is it.. 4. click my computer and explore.
i also encountered that problem about using seagate. first make sure that theres no loose connection between the MotherB and HardDisk. Or maybe it has a virus or a bad sector.,Try this, if you have another hard disk, try to make the 80gb a slave drive. then format it using windows base process (Right click the drive then FORMAT). or try DEFRAGMENTATION and scandisk for that drive.
