I get an error message boot failure


Doesn't sound too good.
Try to go into the BIOS of the computer and see if the hard disk is visible there.
To get into the BIOS you usually press either F2, Delete or F10, repeatedly, immediately after turning on the computer.
If the drive is not listed there, I would check the data and power cables are correctly connected to the mainboard and hard disk - unlikely but worth checking.
If its not a cable issue, then the hard disk may have failed.

If the drive is listed in the BIOS, I would test the hard disk for errors using a boot CD - such as Seagate's Seatools disk - its a free download, burn the image to dvd, boot from the cd and test the hard disk. It works on pretty much any disk, not just seagate drives.
If it fails to see the hard disk, I'd remove the drive and test in another system.
If it can see the drive and finds many bad sectors, I'd stop it and seek professional support if you care about your files.
Otherwise, buy a new drive, connect it up the same, and then use the recovery disks you have to install the OS again.

Hope this helps.

No sound device, just multimedia device after adding a new hard drive and Windows XP reinstall.


Are you booting in from one of 2 hard drives at start-up .. ie. do you have a dual-boot system?

If your sound works fine when using the original hard drive but not when you boot from the slave, then it sounds like a driver problem -in the slave. You'll need to download the sound drivers for XP/Slave.

I can't think of any reason why your computer should beep after you have opened and closed the case. I don't think it is anything to do with the case. It's more likely that there's a bad connection or fault (maybe you have the slave and master on the wrong cable) - or badly fitted RAM.

Count the error beeps - there is a pattern of long and short beeps. You can find a list of their meanings here:
http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1223

Though having said that, I would hazard a guess that you've got the master/slave configuration wrong. If you have both hard drives on one cable (ide) the MASTER drive should be at the end of the cable.

Remember there's a primary master (c) and a secondary master - your dvd drive. A 2nd hard drive would be set up to be the primary SLAVE. You cannot have 2 'master' drives on the same cable or bus. That would cause an error beep ...

Hello,Help,my Compaq Presario 6000 won't boot, turns -on starts it's POSTthen massage...WINDONS DID NOT START SUCCESSFULLY RECENT HARDWARE ,SOFTWARE CHANGE. no changes made. the screen goes black...


Hi Chas,

sounds like you have a piece of hardware that has a bad driver. If you connected something recently, try disconnecting it and then start your computer. If it starts, then you will need to find the correct driver for it before you attempt to hook it back up again.

If that does not solve the problem, try unhooking all hardware, except for the hard drive with the operating system on it. If it starts normally, then you can turn your PC off and hook up one piece of hardware... start the PC... turn it off again... hook up another... start the PC... etc. until you find the hardware that is causing the problem.

If it does not start with only the operating system hard drive attached... then, the hard drive may be defect. You can take it out and put it in a USB casing and hook it up per USB to another PC... if you see the data on it, it should be ok (just in case, this would be a good time to backup any data on it that you may need). If you do not see the hard drive in Windows explorer then it is probably defect and you will need to purchase a new one.

Hope that helps

If there was no clicking sound before and now there is after you installed a hard drive (goes click...click...click) then that is bad. A clicking sound is what you never want to hear from a hard drive. Means it's bad.
Fans don't make clicking sounds.

No boot, a - orange, b - orange, c - green, d - green. weird clicking sound every now and then


That clicking noise, could be what's known as the hard drive click of death. Meaning that your hard drive may have died.

What you need to do is to check that the CPU fan is spinning when it is turned on. Check that the RAM is seated, remove them and clean the gold fingered contacts with tissue paper. Reinsert the RAM modules. Remove the connection to the Hard drive, power included and power on your system, any change? If not then the problem lies elsewhere.

Take care!

My computers hard drive is making rumbling and boiling noise.


The noises you describe could be the hard drive but could also be any of the cooling fans. The best advice I can offer, unless you are competent inside the computer, is to take it to a repair shop and have them check it out. Make sure to back up your personal files/folders first just in case they have to change the hard drive.

When I attempt to log on to my computer, I get message "Loading personal settings", but it immediately changes to "Logging off"...I can't even log on.....HELP!!! I am using an emachines w4685....


Hi,
My Name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. Are you seeing any flash of Blue Screen before it reboots? If not it sounds like you have a boot virus. If you can't boot to Safe Mode best the way to fix this is to pull out the hard drive and put it into another computer that has up to date Antivirus. On the hard drive are pins with a little plastic piece attached to them above that should be a diagram SL = Slave, MS = Master, CS = Cable Select. Depending on the Setting the persons harddrive that is in the computer you are about to put that Hard Drive into depends on the setting you need for your Hard Drive. So remember or right down the setting of your hard drive. If there hard drive is set to Master set your hard drive to slave. If there hard drive is set to Cable Select set yours to Calbe select. With the computer off and unplugged, locate the cable that the hard drive is connected to and take your hard drive and connect it to the second connector which is in the middle of the cable. This is where all slave hard drives go. Note: Dont worry you wont infect the host computer with a virus, because its not an active partition. <--- techy info... Now boot the computer and once the Hard Drive is detected run the Antivirus program on that drive.

There are other solutions, but this is one way you can remove the virus without having to format your computer and start over. If its a Blue Screen please make a post with blue screen issues so that we can figure out exactly what the error is.

You need to backup everything on that drive now while you can. It will quit forever soon.

Hard drives go bad quite often, Get a new one soon - but DO NOT WAIT to back up what you can now.
