Hard disk not work


You have not stated if it starts or doesn't

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems



motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail



check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working



you could run the chkdsk disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive

or

click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart


have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive


hope this helps

Our LG RH397d/rh399d DVD / Hard drive recoreder will only turn on and display the Hallo message, and you can hear a clicking sound from in side. I have remove the power cord no change .


Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive

160 gig external storage


Plug In your external drive! if you have any data back it up!(you said it was new so i assume there little to none) Go to start->run type diskmgmt.msc In the bottom pane look for your external drive! If there is a partition, right click and delete! Now the drive should appear full black on disk management! If not delets any other partitionin the drive. (Make sure you are deleting the external drive partition(s)) Now you can create drives by right clicking on the drive and click create partition! It should bring up a wizard which gives you the option to format, set partition sizes and everything!! If you don't wanna go through all that check out a third party software called Partition Magic: http://www.partitionmagic.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=sp&pvid=pm80 hope this was helpful, regards, babb
