Hi,
Many computer problems are related to soft failures on the hard drive. The comprehensive portion of the HP Hard Drive Self Test repairs soft errors on the hard drive, but does not report the errors. After the test completes, be sure to restart the computer to determine if the test repaired any problems you are experiencing with your computer. If the computer has two hard drives, you should select the multi-bay test option and test each drive separately.
  1. Plug the AC Adapter into the computer.
  2. Turn off the computer and wait 5 seconds.
  3. Press the Power button to start the computer and repeatedly press the f10 key to enter the BIOS Setup menu.
  4. Use the Right Arrow or Left Arrow keys to navigate through the menu selection to locate the Primary Hard Drive Self Test option. Depending on your BIOS, this may be located below either Diagnostics or Tools .
  5. Select Primary Hard Drive Self Test , and then press the Enter key to start the test. NOTE: The exact wording of the option for your particular BIOS may be slightly different.
The Hard Drive Self Test performs a Quick Test followed by a Comprehensive Test . During each test, the window displays a status bar and an estimated time to completion. See HP Notebook PCs - Testing a Hard Disk using the Built in Self Test for additional information.
  • If any test fails , contact HP service and support for instructions on how to order a replacement hard drive.
  • If all of the tests pass, the hard drive is not damaged. As a rule, HP will not replace a hard drive under warranty that does not fail the HP Hard Drive Self Test.
  • If there is no physical problem with the hard drive or memory, then try reinstalling your Windows operating system to troubleshoot the problem.

If it fails then you need to replace the HDD. If you can provide me the product no. then I would be able to find the exact part no.of the HDD.

Problem with hp compaq nc8430 no see my hard drive Went I reinstall windown xp my hard drive it not present


Hi there,

Go into the BIOS setup (press f10 during boot process), then SYSTEM CONFIGURATION and disable SATA NATIVE SUPPORT. Try installing XP again and it should see your hard drive.

(If it will work then please vote for me).

Thanks

Blue screens - Testing Hardware for problems.


well that question, is what keeps me in business.... you see it is just so hard tracking down exactly "What is wrong" Usually it is difficult to find intermittent problems such as yours, where something is faulty, but in a non-specific way... I think your problem just may be the hard drive corruption... First before you go off chasing a fault, please Format the Hard Drive NTFS Full Format. This WILL remove all data and programs sorry BUT this is actually what is mucking everything up, the fact you are simply putting stuff in on top of bad stuff..see? Then using a FRESH COPY. Using a Windows Install Disc, borrow download, whatever it takes, install whatever version you are going to. Now see if this "Fixes" your problem.. If it doesn't well then you can work through, by disconnecting and swapping out pieces of the PC, for known good ones until you find the real problem, but for now try that.

Computer will only start in safe mode hp cue root and hp help and restore are not working? what is the best resolution? hard drive failure?


I have included some directions from HP about using an embedded Hard drive test. This is done using the BIOS. Try this to rule out a hard drive problem. This is supposed to also repair some hard drive issues. Then, we can go from there.

Laptop shuts off every ten minutes


Probably the fact that the fan is not working at the correct speeds (faster when working on processes), because of probable deposits of sticky coffee is more than likely causing the shutdowns, especially if there is no screen warning coming up.
