  • Means of hard drive failure cannot use the recovery partition. Alas! recovery discs will not read!

    Hard drive decided to throw a wobbly and abandon me. I can't access the drive at all so decided to but a new and use the recovery at least discs bring the machine to its status as an out-of-box.

    That's the problem... It will not read the recovery disc. I know there is some stuff about it because I read in another machine. Until you tell me to change the DVD hardware... it reads very well all the other disks. I loaded Arcronis, as well as other system repair stuff, using the DVD Player/Recorder.

    I have a pukka Product Code for the software, Vista Home Basic. Can I get a Vista Home Basic disc and then use my key to sting?  I'm happy to pay a price, but do not want to buy at the price high. After all, I already paid for it once!

    Any help/suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Mr. Blue Screen.

    Hello

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-Vista.html

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • HP Pavilion g7-2054sa Notebook: imminent hard drive failure - code GLQ3J0-65V838-MFPX0J-60C403

    I have the black screen at startup saying hard disk failure is imminent. Controls of the f2 said

    Drive hard SMART test failed

    ID GLQ3J0-65V838-MFPX0J-60C403 failure

    Product ID B1P45EA #AEU

    What it means? I also get messages on Windows 7 hard disk failure is imminent. What is in fact a hard drive failure?

    The problems started after system restore to a point previous (5 days ago) after downloading some updates of the site Web HP that have been identified as relevant, but caused freezes, which is why the restoration to the previous point. Still trying to get an idea of the problem areas. Most things work very well, but Windows Media Player does not properly is the most obvious fault so far. More I bought a new external hard drive to perform the emergency backup, but it is not recognized when I plug. It is however grateful already used very happy memory sticks.

    I'm likely to have a real failure, or is a false reading because things did not settle down properly after the system restore?

    I am not technically very advanced - perhaps at the limit of my understanding so simple popular suggestions/instructions.

    Thanks for all those who have followed this demand. Problem solved - I took it to a local repair shop in the end. While I could probably physically replace the drive myself quite easily, I wanted the confidence of an expert to provide the correct replacement and manages the much larger task to transfer everything at the latest so that I can resume normal with all that where it should be.

  • Hard drive failure? PC Vista

    Vista Home Basic.  Windows does not start, not even the dvd system.  Startup Repair runs and crashes, never finished.  F11 diagnosis indicates hard drive failure which are the only tests that fails. Its seems the hard drive will need to be replaced.  Looking for a confirmation before ordering parts.  Any of you have any other thoughts?  Your comments would be appreciated.

    If the player does not there is no other options

    Hi Carolinelightfoot,

    This error message occurs when the system could not read and write data to the registry file. The error indicates a problem with the registry.

    Method 1:

    You can run a Checkdisk to see if there are drive errors that can cause this problem.

    Check your hard drive for errors

    Note: When you run the disk check, there is a chance of losing the data that you can take a backup of important data before you run checkdisk.

    Method 2:

    You can also try to boot from a full version of Windows Vista installation disc and try to perform a restore of the system to WinRE (Windows Recovery Environment)

    What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista?

    Hope this information is useful.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline S5: Internal HARD drive failure, PC does not start

    Drive HARD internal of my HP Pavilion Slimline S5 failed and died recently (bought in 2011). My HP warranty is long gone.

    The splash screen has shown this message:

    1720-SMART hard detects an imminent failure

    Due to lack of player: SATA0

    Failed attributes: # 05

    I have several questions about this:

    1. Is it only caused by HARD drive failure? I want to replace it myself, but I don't really know if there are other parts to replace. Or it will be better to bring it to the computer shop to do carefully check?
    2. I can replace it with Seagate Barracuda 3.5 "(7200 RPM, 1 TB, SATA 3 or 6)? I think that the current HARD drive is Hitachi.
    3. I still need to transfer Windows OEM once the HARD drive is replaced?

    Thanks in advance.

    According to the packing of the Seagate, it might come with the software.  But if it is OEM drive then found the software by clicking HERE.  In general, I use a USB adapter for hard drive to clone if the PC will not support an additional drive.  Given that a number of incomplete model for the PC, it is difficult to find accurate info, but the Pavilion Slimline S5 I checked all have a motherboard with additional SATA ports.  Just have a spare SATA cable and power on the power port and try the cloning software.  Make sure that the drive is not touch a conductive element.  Usually, I place the additional reader on a cardboard box.

    Install the new drive as a replacement for the existing drive and connect everything as it is now.  Then connect the old drive in the manner discussed.  Boot from the CD created with cloning tools.  If the old drive is cloned stll, then when the software is finished, remove the old drive connections to see if the drive can start the computer.  If this is not successful, try to run the recovery screen (F11) BIOS boot manager.  If that does not work, use the Recovery DVD set brand when the computer was new.  If you did this, or lost them, then see THATto order a series.
