Error code 026

If you mean the BSOD 0x26 error, your hard disk/drive may be corrupt with bad sectors. You may want to check your event viewer to find out if a program is causing this or if it is just bad sectors. If it is a program, I suggest looking up solutions for that program or uninstalling it entirely. Otherwise, you can run a chkdsk to check your hard drives for bad sectors and fix them automatically. In order to do this, you press the Windows Key + R, and then type cmd in the run window. In the cmd window, type (without quotes) "chkdsk /f /r" and press enter. It may ask you to schedule it for the next restart; if so, then just press Y and then enter, then restart the computer. This may take a while, and if the problem persists afterwards, it may be a hardware issue that you should research immediately, as this can severely damage your computer if left unnoticed.

Coping with and avoiding Hard Drive Volume Bit-map Errors

If your computer "locks up" or reboots itself, the problem is frequently lost or corrupted files on your hard drive. Most of the time the problem can be corrected by running chkdsk. However, one of the exceptions is when chkdsk reports that the hard drive has volume bitmap errors.<br /> To run chkdsk, click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Command Prompt. This will open a "DOS Box" where you can enter DOS commands without the results scrolling off the screen before you can read them. Then key in chkdsk C: (assuming that drive C is the letter of the hard drive where your operating system files and applications programs are stored).<br /> Chkdsk will run in the read-only mode and report (but not repair) problems found on your hard drive. Chkdsk will then ask you to run chkdsk with the F switch to fix the file system. Make a mental note whether or not chkdsk reported any problems with the volume bitmap, then key-in chkdsk C: /F <br /> You will get a message that the drive will be checked (and repaired) on the next system restart.<br /> Enter exit to close the DOS box and the restart your system. Chkdsk will run automatically when your system restarts. If no volume bitmap errors were noted earlier, chkdsk should have repaired the problems with the hard drive. You can verify this by opening another DOS Box and running chkdsk without the /F. However, if bit-map errors were reported initially, chances are they will still be there as chkdsk cannot repair them.<br /> If you still have volume bitmap errors, you can either take your PC to a professional who may be able to repair the volume bitmap with specialized software, or you can back-up all of your data, format the hard drive, and reload the operating system and all applications.<br /> A frequent cause of volume bitmap errors is cloning (copying) a hard drive with more than one partition to another (usually larger) hard drive. The partitions should be sized proportionately on the target drive but sometimes the partition sizes are not reported correctly in the partition table and sometimes in the master boot record. <br /> Avoid cloning drives with multiple partitions, or if you do, immediately run chkdsk on the target drive to check for bit-map errors.

Ran a diagnostic on a SATA Disk Samsung HD160JJ1p and received the following error code: 650F:065D - Message IDE device failed. The self test failed to read a portion of the test. Will a chkdsk fix this...

No, chkdsk will not help: this is a hardware defect - part of the platter of the disk is damaged. The disk is dead, recover what you can from it and get a new one.

Operating System not found! HELP!

If you are running windows, Insert your windows cd and set computer to start from cd. When prompted to, hit a key to boot from CD. Let Windows start the install (relax it is not really installing anything) when it gets to the prompt tell it you want to Repair an existing installation. Then pick the prompt that gets you the recovery console. When you get to the prompt type CHKDSK /R and let it run. Sometimes this can take an hour or more depending on the size of your drive. Do not get worried if the percentages complete go backwards, like from 70% back to 50%. Sometimes it will go back and fix files. Hopefully you will not get the error that there are unrecoverable errors. This has worked for me on about 90% of the hard drives that I received the inaccessible boot device and about 30% of the drives where it said OS not found. If this does not work your hard drive may have failed. Let us know.

Ive ran out of ideas!!!

If you have tried recovery disks (i.e. reinstalling operating system) and are still receiving BSOD (blue screen of death) then you most certainly have a hardware problem.  As the person asked above, have you installed any new hardware recently?  Also, can you please tell me when you get the BSOD?  Is it immediate upon booting, or does it happen at random times while using your pc?  Also, if you could post the error message received that would certainly help to further troubleshoot your problem.  Thanks.
