My lappy hard disk is giving status that hard disk failure try to install in other location. then i connected it to my pc to take backup


Not sure I understand your Question... or maybe you are making a statement? But, it sounds like your hard drive (HD) is dead, no good , non useable... So what are your options? Purchase another hard drive, you should have received system backup disk or install disk with your laptop , you can use them to reinstall the operating system (OS) Windows on the new hard drive. There is a slight possibility you could try them (the install disk) to re-install your OS on your original HD, but again it sounds like your HD is dead.

If you have never made a back up of you hard Drive, then all your data (pic, documents, game, contacts) are lost. The problem most people don't understand is if the hard drive crashes for physical reasons, the spring breaks inside, or a diode burns out, then the data on the disk are lost.

You may also take your laptop to a computer repair shop near you and they can tell you more about your options.

You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

My Laptop is running very slow and it is often giving problems with my sound.


http://www.piriform.com/

try running ccleaner, download and install from above web page.
run the cleaner to delete old files and clutter, run registry to tune windows.
In tools section go into start-up and disable all programs, and then any programs that need to start on switching on will still start, but normally lots of other programs start up that dont need to, stopping these from starting up will speed up your laptop. Don't woory about disabling programs, when you want to use them they will start as normal

Laptop powers down 5 seconds after turning on


Straight forward method would be to download Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset from microsoft.com, write it to a bootable CD. Make your Laptop bootable from CD drive (ie. is change the sequence of booting. At present it will be booting from Hard disk.) Boot from the CD you just created. Check what is the problem. And possible repair can be done. Check this link.

But.. may be a little difficult.
And while I am at this, be careful when you take out a hard disk from one laptop and insert it in another laptop. Even though it is from the same manufacturer, it may not be compatible.
Another easier option would be to get hold of a desktop computer that is working. Get a cable which can be used to connect your laptop Hard disk to the desktop. A desk top allows multiple drives. This way you can get the laptop HDD as a seperate drive in your My computer, (like you see a pendrive or a CD drive. You can try reading this drive and copy content to the desktop. And burn it to a CD. May be a little more easier. If you have difficulty in reading the Laptop HDD, you can download one or the other programs that helps in reading corrupted drives. Good luck.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop PC that crashed and will not boot up. What can I do?


You can try to re-build the operating system with the original disks.
You can get a new hard drive and reinstall the OS.
You can boot to Bart PE or other type of system disk to investigate the cause of the crash and try to repair it.

Make sure you start by deleting the old partition, and formatting C:. If it still locks up after that, then your hard drive is bad.

AMILO Li 2727 Can't Detect New Hard Drive


My feeling is that there is a problem with the interface where the hard drive hooks up into.

Best thing to try just to verify it, reset the BIOS to factory defaults and reboot the laptop and see if it recognizes the hard drive then. If it doesn't then go back into the BIOS and just make sure in the BIOS where it detects the hard drive that its not disabled.

If you do these two things and the hard drive still isn't recognized then you know without a doubt that the motherboard is bad.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk 4


Yes usually that error means that the hard drive is telling the controller card that there are some problems with the drive.

Although the drive may still work, it is highly recommended to replace it with a new drive.

I would replace the drive but keep the old drive just in case, after re-installing Vista you find that there is additional data you did not backup or remember to backup.

Just replace the drive, and if it's a Dell laptop, use the Dell Vista reinstallation DVD, and it will not ask for a keycode to reinstall.

May also want to go to another computer and go to support.dell.com and click Drivers and Downloads. Type the service tag and go ahead and download all drivers needed (i.e. network card, sound card, etc.) so after you reinstall Vista, if there are any drivers missing you will be ready to install them.

Hope this helps.
