II replace the hard drive in my sony vio all in one desktop, wil that correct all errors


It depends on the type of errors you are experiencing. Replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system may resolve a great deal of software related problems, including issues with the operating system. And it will also resolve any hardware related issues that you had with the original hard drive. But replacing the drive won't help with other hardware related problems such as motherboard, ram, power supply and optical drive issues.

I need to reset the jumpers for my hard drive quit and i'm trying to install another HD and it reads no OS also will not let me install an Os either?


If you have installed the hard drive and it reads no OS, that means you have a blank hard drive. You need to install Windows on it.
If you took a hard drive out of your system and are replacing it with a new one, place the jumpers on the new one in the same location as they are on the old one.
Different hard drive brands use different jumper locations. When in doubt, the jumper location is printed on the front of the drive or, in the case of a Western Digital, is printed on the bottom of the drive right below the jumper posts.

My external Lacie hard drive was in the upright position on desk and while i was moving it, it tip over (into flat position) on desk. There is now a clicking and beeping sound in the drive and the it's no...


Hello,
traditional hard drives are sensitive devices and it is normal for them to fail even after such a shock. It is even recommended to not move a hard drive while it is spinning.

If you do not need the data on this drive, replacing the internal hard drive and then formatting with your operating system is all that you have to do.

If you need the data, you will need to bring the drive to a data recovery center, There is nothing you can try at home without taking the risk of negating any possible chance of recovering the data.

No matter the brand and type of storage device, it is recommended to always have a copy of important data on a different media.
Regards,

When drive is switched on blue light on front flashes rapidly but the drive icon does not appear on the dektop.


Hello, the light blinking rapidly means that the drive is trying to establish communication with the computer but cannot.
First, check if the power brick is silent when plugged into the wall power outlet. If it is noisy, like hissing or high pitch noise, usually replacing it will solve the issue.
If the power supply seems healthy, it might be the port you are currently using, either on computer or drive side. Try using a different port on the computer, if no change, try using a different port on the drive. Using USB if connected firewire or using Firewire if connected USB.
If your drive is out of warranty, you can take out the internal hard drive and connect it directly to an internal port or put it in another enclosure to access your data, the internal hard drive should have no issue.

Hi, My Seagate 500 GB Internal hard disk (Barracuda 7200.11) suddenly became non responsive (not detected by BIOS), Is there a way to make it responsive?


Please check the internal connection of your motherboard to your hard drive. Try reconnecting the cable connecting the hard drive to the motherboard. It usually fixes issues with undetected devices.

Btw, this model has a known issue, turns bad easily turns bad.

Just a suggestion, try using different models or a different brand.

Hope this helps! :D

I can not locate a driver for my Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive. Do you know where?


Your device should not need drivers Fte Fantom/Titanium drives are fully supported by both Windows and Mac OS's.
Try replacing the cable or using a different USB port.
Sorry I cannot be of more help, The drive itself may be damaged, You can test this by physically removing the drive itself from the case and installing it internally to your system....If the drive functions properly, then the problem is within the board inside the casing.

Sounds like your hard drive is toast but £145 for sony to replace it sounds expensive, you should just be able to replace it with any 2.5" internal sata drive
here is an example of one
http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/9663375/Toshiba-MK5055GSX-500GB-2-5-Internal-SATA-Hard-Drive/Product.html?source=5066&engine=froogle_pc&keyword=Toshiba+MK5055GSX+500GB+2.5%22+Internal+SATA+Hard+Drive+(Sony+Playstation+PS3+Compatible)

That one is about £80 but im sure you can find cheaper, the best news is that replacing the drive doen't void your warranty which is good, here is a link to really good guide for replacing your ps3 hard drive
