    Sorry the answer you received was not the answer you were looking for. It is the only answer though. The rating should rate the answer and not your unhappiness with your situation.

    I did not base my rating on my situation~only on the response I received. It in fact was not helpful since it did not in any way answer my question. I was completely aware that it needed to be repaired and that I could send it in to Nintendo. My question was does it relate to the Disc Drive & is there in fact a hard drive. A simple glance at Nintendo's website will tell me to send it in for repair. Thank you anyway.

    Again, internal system memory relates to the boot portion of the system memory. There is flash memory with a boot sector on it and not a hard disk drive. So the answer was complete and the fact you have spent over $90.00 on a repair for a device you can now buy for $145.00 really surprises me. I am sorry for the incomplete answer, but I thought at this point you would be looking beyond this as a solution and just replacing the unit. I understand you have money invested into it, but it might not be a bad idea to keep this unit as a parts machine and purchase a new one. The cost of repairs will exceed the cost of a new unit. I hope this changes your feelings and warrants a much higher rating.

    That is a more thorough response. When you state "again,....", I don't understand because the original response I received was simply that it needed to be repaired. At the time that I had the repair done, I simply dropped it off hoping it would not be too expensive. It belongs to my children & I wanted them to have it to play and already had over 50 games plus accessories. If I had thought about it, I would have just gotten a new one. Thank you for your time & your more complete response.

I was restoring to "out of the box" settings with

Best bet is to obtain new installation media. If the recovery cds were corrupted chances are system files are corrupted as well. NTLDR or NT Loader, contains information regarding location of system files, operating system etc. To correct it you'll most likely have to reinstall, either fresh, or run a repair operation using whatever OS install disc you're looking to run on your machine.

Need to run HP PC System Recovery on Pavillion a775c. Files corrupted - fixing this older computer for a friend. No virus protection. Only one user account (the administrator). Cannot start any program...

One way but its drastic, you could replace the Hard Drive. It makes me think that it might be the hard drive because windows cannot boot from the drive. Its pretty easy to replace a hard drive, then run the system recovery disc.

Wii wont read disc

Either dirty discs, dirty laser or defective laser/disc drive. Wii cleaning discs are available to help wipe the lens clean.(has to be made for the wii $10). Replacing the laser is not a job for the novice. There are U-Tube videos that go through the steps. A new drive is $26, new laser $8. Some places will charge up to $100 for repair. Nintendo is about $90 with shipping.

My wii system is not reading the disc what does this mean

It could mean a lot of things.
  1. The disc is scratched or dirty, so when the drive tries to read the disc it sees all the data as being corrupted. To fix this, all you should have to do is clean the disc using either a kit or find some business locally that will do it (this is usually very cheap).
  2. If it's happening with more than one disc, your drive could be bad. You might want to call Nintendo and check on your warranty status. They may be able to fix your Wii for free.

My wii is saying that the system files are corrupted. how do i fix this?

Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the Hard drive corruption error

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a Wii Repair Guide , From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Nintendo, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $90

Glad I could Help!

Good Luck & Best Regards

Playstation 3 message "hard disc file system is corrupted..."

Your hard drive may have gone bad. Maybe try using a different hard drive. Once you put it in, the system data should install itself.
