The shock has damaged the hard disk - this is unfixable, you will need to replace the hard disk and reinstall Windows.

    The only thing that prevents the chipset of the motherboard from recognizing the disk when it's correctly attached it's a defect in the hard disk itself. This is unfixable, the disk is dead - downgrading me won't change that.

Vista will not boot

Shutdown and then take your hard drive out, connect it to another PC with a USB adapter/cable, and use that other PC's anti-virus (e.g., McAffee) and anti-malware (e.g., malwarebyte) to scan and clean your hardrive. Make sure your hard drive does not overheat during the scan/cleaning process. After cleaning, re-insert hard drive in your laptop and boot.

My PC is working fine, when my mouse starts lagging and a blue screen pops up, telling me to reboot my computer. so I do, and when it comes on, a screen comes up saying American Trends and some other...

The message you are seeing (ami trends) is the 1st stage of the netbook booting (the bios), this checks that all the system components are present in a sequence.

From what you are describing, it looks as though the hard drive has slowly been failing and this would account for the lagging mouse. The Bios error message "hard disc error" confirms that the bios has not been able to detect the hard drive, which could mean that the drive has failed, the drive controller has failed, or, (possibly) this is virus related. Pressing F1 to resume will achieve nothing, as this is a sort of skipping step that ignores the problem.

Before going into the stages below, try to access the bios (press F2 just as it powers on), look for the screen which lists the boot order and drives attached, see if it "sees" the hard drive (primary master) and that it is selectable. If so, reboot and see if it now detects it. Sometimes removing and reinserting the drive is enough to get it to be recognised
If it then works, worth virus scanning the drive to be on the safe side

Fixing the problem:
Firstly, you need to see if the hard drive has indeed failed, the best way is to substitute the hard drive with another one known to be good. If this is recognised in the bios, than this has most likely been the issue. You will need to reinstall windows (external CDrom and windows OS needed)

Secondly, if the hard drive is not detected by the bios, the fault lies in the hard dive connection ( check the connection from the hard drive to the motherboard, make sure it is firm and not loose, sometimes even a loose fitting drive will not be recognised). If it still is not recognised then the problem lies with the motherboard and will possibly need specialist repair

I have a two-year old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. for no apparent reason, it will now not boot up. When I turn it on, I get the following message......"Internal hard disk not found. To resolve this...

The hard drive may have failed or a virus has corrupted the Cmos data.
Try entering the BIOS and checking that the Cmos recognises that the hard drive is there. If it doesn't, remove the hard drive and re fit it, booting up again.

Whenever i run my computer i get windows cannot find ssvichosst.exe at the startup

sounds like a virus or malware has infected your system. if you can at least boot in safe mode, do a virus/malware scan of your system. if available, schedule a boot scan. If unable to boot using your hard disk, try to boot using your Windows CD and try to go to the recovery console to perform your scans, otherwise, it may be faster to just completely wipe out your hard disk and reinstall Windows. if you have important data, try to create a backup, but be sure to do a full scan of the backup afterwards before restoring them back after an OS reinstall

I am unable to fromat my IBM machine,its not

your bios maybe infected with a virus. first try removing the cmos battery in your ibm machine for 1 minute and put it back. next, make sure that the hard disk is working and is not corrupted try making a new partition in a different pc. Paste all the files from the windows xp installer to your newly made partition. next put the hard disk into your ibm pc. and wait till it boots into your hard drive and the setup will begin. make another partition for your windows xp system and install it to that directory. if you cannot boot into your hard disk, there may be a problem with your ide cables. try checking the cables from your ibm pc connected to your hard me if you still have problems and questions.. heres my email
Thank you

I caught a virus on my sony laptop. now i can't

Do you have an emergency disk? With this scenario, you need to boot to another boot device, like an emergency disk, then virus-scan and fix your hard drive.
