It seems like your hard drive might have failed. Please check to see if the drive is recognized by the BIOS: Press DEL at startup and try to find the HDD into the menus, see if it displays correctly.
If it's not there, you can try plugging it to another computer, and see if it can be recognized, if all this fails.

You need to purchase a new hard drive.

Computer wont boot completely up missing or corrupt files


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message 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.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

It won't turn on. It shows a black screen with "disk read error occured, press CTRL ALT DEL to restart. Then when you do this it does nothing.


Make sure you don't have any bootable CD/DVDs in it. Disconnect any external USB flash/thumb/hard drives.

If that does not work it is your primary hard drive. Either the data on it got corrupted, the drive is failing or has failed.

The first step is to try to repair Windows. Below is a decent tutorial but you can find more with a web search.

If Windows repair cannot find the hard drive the it has failed. You need to install a new hard drive and hope you have backup.

If Windows repair is buggy and gives you errors of missing data during and after the repair the disk is failing and "forgetting" data. Replace the disk.

Otherwise, repair will fix things so the only thing you need to do is scan for a virus or find the program that corrupted Windows.

Good Luck!

Wont boot on its own, wont boot with install disc,


As the hard disk appears to be showing up when you boot up using the install disc, I would suspect that the system is somewhat corrupted. You could reinstall the system again and if you are happy starting from scratch and wiping the hard drive select this option failing that and there is some data on the imac you could install using the preserve user data. A fresh install should sort out any problems. Hope this helps.

Read corrupted hard disks


one thing u should know first is that you cannot open the hard disk in another system if it is not the same system, because of the drivers and chip set. so to confirm this, u must test it from a system that is the same with yours.

OPS - windows Vista Business. Not able start windows Vista: 1. system restore - failed, error code 0x490 2. system files integrity - failed, error code 0x2 3. system volume on disk is corrupt.


You basically are having BSOD = Blue screens of death of the boot manager and causes your computer to crash and not log into the OS, I would recommend you do a DFT , Drive Fitness Test on the computer, you can download it from google and burn it to a cd and boot off of it and test your Hard Drive. Most likely you have a bad hard drive or bad sectors and these damaged sectors could have been system files that vista needs to boot into and since it can no longer access / find them you wont be able to log on. If you replace the Hard Drive and reinstall using your system Disks/ restore cd's you should be golden and up and running. If you dont have the disks you can call the computer manufacturer and they should be able to supply you a copy for a small charge. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.
