Hard drive error

Hi, I installed a 250GB hard drive and it was working with no problems but suddenly I am getting a hard disk error before any attempt to boot up. Using the repair facilities with the Windows XP CD I have done a chkdsk - no problems. Also did a fixMDr and fixBoot and no problems. Have I got a BIOS problem?? Please help

Go into the BIOS setup and see if it detects it.

How old is that computer?

Hi i purchased a dell 1318 laptop from china suddenly i cont install xp it,s support only win7 while trying to install xp it will display the error message like this


Your laptop may have a SATA hard drive.
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.

Windows is working normally and suddenly the ideapad Y430 shows a black screen and the following error messages: Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v11.0.11 Copyright (C) 2000-2008 Broadcom Corporation Copyright...


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Unfortunately the error that you getting means that there is a problem with the hard drive. So you will need to replace the drive in the system.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Hi,
I can understand the inconvenience you are going through. I have worked in dell so i would like to tell you that the hard would would cost you around $50. The sales rep will give you a costlier option but you can ask them for this price hard drive. If you get it from dell the rep in technical will also assist you in getting it installed free of charges.

I would say get it from dell either online or over the telephone..
hope it helps

Thanks and Regards

Hi,
That error means that the Boot Manager is Missing. This is usualy caused by either a failed hard drive, or a failed attempt at recovery. If you try to do a recovery and then suddenly halt the process, weather on purpose or due to somthing like power failure, then the first bit of the Recovery boot process, the BTMNGR, can be hosed. If this happens then your only option is to order recovery disks from the manufacturer and install the OS that way. These disks will run you about $15-$30

You might boot into bios (F10 on startup) and do a hard drive self test first to make sure you dont have a hard drive problem...

What does ' a disk read error occurred press ctr alt del to restart, everytime i do it it gives me the same error??


You could have a hard drive problem. To check the hard drive boot up to the Windows XP cd in repair mode. At the C prompt type: chkdsk /r
This will start a program called Check Disk that will evaluate your hard drive and attempt to fix any errors. it Check Disk is successful it will complete 100% and return to a C prompt. You can then attempt to reboot. If Check Disk finds unrecoverable errors you will need to purchase a new hard drive and rebuild the OS.

My laptop doesnt work anymore suddenly!


This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.

Booting Error Message No Operating System Found


Hi!

Make sure that hard drive is detected in BIOS. If not, there is a problem with the hard drive and any attempt to install OS will be futile since there is no hard drive detected. If this basically means you have a busted hard drive, you may need to replace it then to continue with OS installation.

Thanks.

Toshiba Satelite A65-S1762 hard drive problem


That means that the disk has a bad sector.

Try chosing the option to format the hard drive during the system installation.

If that does not work, then replace the hard drive.
