My IBM cant read the HDD during boot, but it displays it in the post boot screen, tried installing fresh XP but keeps on hanging on examining hard disk


Is this really an IBM? Didn't know there were any around any more. Is it old? Most old motherboards can't use newer hard drives. And some expect proprietary hard drives. Or is it just a "PC"?

First question is, what happened before that? Did it EVER read it?
Did someone change the Bios configuration?

Hard drives are pretty cheap. If XP can't read it, it probably has failed.
Replace the hard drive.

Hard disk led fix after 3-5mn and system freeze


With the items you say you have changed, the only other item that may be causing the problem is the power supply. The RAM would give an immediate fail, not wait a few minutes. The power supply on the other hand could have a faulty Capacitor in one of the output lines. Try a known good power supply.

Can not boot up computer


possible your hard drive

A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions EIDE SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
You might need to upgrade your graphics card drivers

you might have to remove your graphics card to make sure the socket is clean
restart your computer the reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
if your computer came with a mother board disk the drivers could be on it

click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings

I am having frequent BSOD and also flash/shockwave player problems.. what to do ???


I can only assume that you have added some new hardware to your system recently. BSOD is usually an indication of a hardware conflict, caused by new hardware, Remove any new hardware and try again, BSOD can have other causes although hardware is the most common. Hope this helps.

On my IBM t21 laptop when I press the power button the hdd light flashes ones and then it just gose off Help me pls


This usually means thehard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controlleris faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive 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 USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then 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.

My hard disk has an error and computer cannot boot. what should i do?


first, recover your files. You can recover files with file recovery software like asoftech data recovery. download the software from
http://download.cnet.com/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-75328850.html?part=dl-75328850&subj=dl&tag=button

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Try to go into the bios and set the first boot device as your sata hdd. There will be a option in boot section of the cmos setup where the hdd drive order will be mentioned. If PATA is shown first press enter in the option select SATA and press enter save and exit changes things should go on fine.


Also check your pata hdd and cdrom specific jumper setting. For more help post your HDD model and make and cdrom model and the bios type
