> mostly it does not work

Then, it is time to copy all the files from it, onto your computer, before it ALWAYS does NOT work.

Then, take the unit to any computer store; they can remove the 120GB disk-drive, and put in a new 240GB or 500GB disk-drive into the casing.

How to put sata hard drive in


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, sit the laptop on it's side and look for the hard drive in a bay. The drive will have 2 cables going into it, one for the Power coming from the power supply and the other is the SATA Interface Cable that will come from the motherboard. SATA Cables are slim flat cables, most times they are colored red, blue or black. Remove the cables from the hard drive, remove the screws if any are holding it in a bay, sometimes there may be plastic rails that hold the drive in the bay (especially on Dell Computers, most times the rails are green or blue). Sometimes there may be a need to remove the bay to get to the drive. If so there will be a screw or two holding the bay in place.

Once removed, put your new drive in, put all the cables in place then reboot to your Operating System Disk to load windows on it. After windows is loaded check your drivers in the device manager, if any are missing, download and install them. Then start loading you application programs.

Hello. I use Intel ZX-865 GV Motherboad with three hard disks- Maxtor 20 GB Hard Disk,Samsung 80 GB Hard Disk & Hitachi 500GB Hard Disk. Problem is,the motherboard often can not detect one hard...


As the error says, the 3rd slave hard disk (which one depends on how you have connected them - most likely the Samsung) isn't responding in a timely manner to the commands coming from the southbridge. Because of the miscommunication, the master disk on the same cable (the Hitachi) can also fail the recognition, even if there is nothing wrong with it.
This is a hardware defect: that disk is dying and there is nothing you can do to fix it. Just take out all your information out of it and remove it from the pc permanently

Your batery is dead they don't like long period of staying discharging (If you 100% shure that your Nikon is working) The time of charge dosen't matter.

Only ocationaly rebooting the system. most of the time it says operating system not found.what could be the reason.Please help.My system Fujitsu seimens amilo pro 2065


Hey, either a hard disk corruption or some missing/corrupt files - Solution: Format and reinstall your Operating system. If that doesnt work, maybe you need a hard disk replacement.
But before that, are you sure you haven't connected any USB drives or flash drives or an external hard drive when you computer boots up. That could be the reason. Solution: disconnect any such device before you start your computer.

Bootmgr missing


Causes of BOOTMGR ErrorsThere are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

Another reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boot from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from. Fixes for BOOTMGR Errors
  1. Restart the PC. The BOOTMGR error could be a fluke.

  2. Perform a startup repair of Windows. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files, including BOOTMGR. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

  3. Check your floppy and optical drives for media. Often times, the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error will appear if your PC is trying to boot to a non-bootable floppy disk or CD/DVD.

    Note: If you find that this is the cause of your issue and it's happening regularly, you might want to consider changing the boot order in BIOS so the hard drive is listed as the first boot device.

  4. Check the hard drive and other drive settings in BIOS and ensure they are correct. The BIOS configuration tells the computer how to use a drive so incorrect settings can cause problems, including BOOTMGR errors.

    Note: There's usually an Auto setting in BIOS for hard disk and optical drive configurations which is usually a safe bet if you're not sure what to do.

  5. Reseat all internal data and power cables. BOOTMGR error messages could be caused by loose or malfunctioning power or controller cables.

    Try replacing the PATA or SATA cable if you suspect it might be faulty.

  6. Update your motherboard's BIOS. An outdated BIOS version can sometimes cause the "BOOTMGR is Missing" error.

  7. Perform a clean installation of Windows. This type of installation will completely remove Windows from your PC and install it again from scratch. While this will almost certainly resolve any BOOTMGR errors, it's a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

    If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows.

  8. Replace the hard drive and then perform a new installation of Windows. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.
BOOTMGR Errors Apply To BOOTMGR issues apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating systems only. Windows XP does not utilize BOOTMGR. The equivalent function in Windows XP is NTLDR


Whish you the best luck.

Packard bell chroma 2'5 EXTHDD 320GB tempramental sometimes works other times will not help


Check the Power Rating of Your System. USB Disks mostly draw their power from the system attached. Ifyour System's power is in sufficient then the operating system shut down the device to manage the shortage power. That is why it works sometime.

Hard disk clicking


Opening up the disk will render it unless you have access to a 'clean room' - which most of us don't.

However, I've been able to get 'clicking' drives to work by repeatedly connecting and reconnecting it to the USB and / or power source.

Sometimes it will 'catch'. Sometimes a nice 'tap' on it helps too.

Most of the time, it's spacejunk though.
