In that case it is and you need to replace it before it does fail. If you don't know how to do that then take it to you local friendly pc repair shop.

1720 s.m.a.r.t HDD detects imminent failure the computer cant boot-up.


if you haven't got a good back up, external to the hard drive, it may be too late
dead hard drives are mostly un recoverable
take it to a computer repair shop to make sure that it is not a boot problem
if the hard drive is failing, replace it with a solid state hard drive that has no spinning discs to fail

Load clattering on hp 4500 startup


if the boot process takes longer that normal, regularly goes back to reboot or you have other problems it could be a failing hard drive (Save all the files and folders to external hard drive and install a solid state hard drive --no spinning disc to fail)
if it is not that check the cooling fan operation for the power supply or chip-- about the only other things that have movement

Pc wont recognize my hp simplesave 2TB external hard drive


No PC stated
No OS stated. (operating system) nor if PC is internet connected.
no Simplesafe model stated, is it the 3.5" HDD? version
id yes it needs power pack to use it. HDD uses huge currents to start up. and spin.
USB ports?
if the drive fails on all PCs, the drive is bad. (or was erased by grimlin's in the night)
plug in the power pack 12vdc is correct.
do not mix it up with other packs or boom.
then listen to the hdd case with you ear, here it spin up?
if not the pack is dead, or the hdd is dead.


here is the power pack for it sold in stores
see that model number there you forgot, to mention, MD2....~~~~

12V Mains AC-DC Adapter for HP Simplesave 2TB MD2000HB External Hard Drive HS....

the drives can fail and be good.
for many reasons.
  1. bad usb port
  2. usb port driver missing.
  3. OS virus corruptiong
  4. drive fails to spin means no 12vdc power. (bad power pack)
  5. using a laptop and expecting the weak USB ports to start HDD motor, will never happen, on large 3.5" HDD. some cant even start a 2.5"

Www com 500


there is no need for a driver. for PATA. drive!
If XP then SATA drives does. but yours is not a SATA.
you failed to state what hardware this is, desk top, lap top? what?
a server?"
and what OS, Windoz, , Linux ? and version.

my guess is you have a problem. but failed to state what.
we can diagnose any problems, but must know it.

Pri master hard disk s.m.a.r.t. status bad, backup and replace press del to resume


Hard drive is bad or is going to fail soon.

Solution


Backup your information and contact the maunufacturer of the computer or the hard drive for replacement or additional help.


In some very rare cases the S.M.A.R.T. implementation on your computer may have issues of its own and may need to be patched before replacing the hard drive.


If I am receiving the S.M.A.R.T. error, is it ok if I continue to use my hard drive and do not replace it?


As stated above, S.M.A.R.T. is designed to detect upcoming failures in the hard drive.

While it is possible that the hard drive may not fail for several months, it is still inevitable that the hard drive will fail.


It is ok to continue to use the hard drive, however, we highly recommend that if you are still under warranty that you consider getting the drive replaced before your warranty runs out.


hope this helps

My pictures are not being backed up. Memeo gives message stating failed to back-up. Error (9) is displayed


Failed backups can usually be traced to your antivirus running in the backgound. if you have any active antivirus and spyware detection running then stop them before you backup. Should work ok then.

I tried using the operating system disk to try and fix the error 0xc000000e like stated and it just loops back to the error.


This indicates a bad hard drive, remove hardware and re-seat back into place. If this fails remove hard drive and take it to the computer shop for testing, if it fails you will need a new hard drive.

My Hp Pavilion All in One Ms214 states operating system not found. Enter the bios and it isn't recognizing my hard drive. It states 0mb. It is a western digital caviar blue 320 gig.


Remove the hard drive from the laptop, and re-seat the hardware back in place. Turn the computer on and see if the hard drive will come to life, if this fails the hardware will need to be replaced.

Cant access files on my harddrive


Hello,

It sounds like either the enclosure or the drive inside has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Maxtor(Seagate) for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

A blue screen is an operating system error. this can be caused by either a corrupt operating system or a failed hard drive. What you will need to do is run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take then reformat the hard drive and install a fresh operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
