Qosmio F60 - 11F - problem of failure of HARD drive for the 3rd time
My Toshiba Qosmio F60 - 11(f) does not continue 6 months with me until a HARD disk failure that happens with the same massege (failure of HARD drive on disk0 hard to predict Intel SMART)
I took my laptop to the service center for 3 times now, and I would like to fix this kind of problem for good and do not reproduce.
Qosmio F60 - 11F

The HARD drive may begin to malfunction because it s a part not reusable.
I'm not very well why the HARD drive starts to malfunction in these times early in any case the party m can be replaced very easily and usually you don t we had to send the laptop to the ASP.
Get in touch with an ASP and ask compatible HARD drive. If it s covered by the warranty, you should get so much for free, otherwise you will need to purchase these parts.
However, here you can check how to replace the HDD:

So, I finally got an external hard drive. I formatted for Mac (the device has been verified as being correct), and then he started to do a backup, which stated that a full backup would take 95GB. However, it only supported 19GB. When I have my 'open' backup drive, I saw that only 'Macintosh HD' received support upward, not my user profile with all my folders containing documents, photos, movies, etc...
I'm quite confused, because I thought that it would save. I plan on Snow Leopard update to El Capitan, but if something is wrong or I don't like, I'm afraid that I won't be able to restore all my personal files - but only the applications that are on my Macintosh HD.
Should I delete everything in my backup disk and try again?
This is an image of what's inside my external hard drive:
You have not indicated how you have saved, if you've used Time Machine then you do things the hard way and you'll find very difficult TM. Please use the Time Machine interface to locate your saved data. You can benefit from the research on:
Use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac - Apple, Support the section you want to find is the restoration section.
I just got a new hardisk. What should I do before using it? Can someone give me instructions step by step?
IM using Windows Xp
In this case, shut down the PC, unplug the power cord, take anti-static precautions and install the disk drive. Turn on the PC and use disk management to partition/format-it as wish you...
... NTFS file system is the best.
To store your data, I recommend to move the My Documents folder...
... but you don't have to do if you want to keep some data on C: and the rest on a partition on the new disk.
You could also start to install some programs (games or other) on the disk by making custom installations and change the drive letter.
Is it possible that I can export my photos from my lightroom cameras sd card and an external hard drive at the same time so I have pictures original/master in both places
Thanks in advance
Looks like you want to make a backup during import. If this is the case, you can designate a different location for a second copy when importing.
- Check the mark a second copy of box in the management of the files Panel and choose your external drive in the menu drop-down
- Then you set regular destination of Lightroom in the Destination panel.
However, if you mean that you want in the foreground images in Lightroom, but have them physically located on an external drive, then all you need to do is choose this drive in the Destination panel. Lightroom Catalog can be on a different drive.
I find it useful, however, to use the automatic backup in file management Panel in case.
I have a Qosmio F60 - 11F and I install * windows 7 ultimate 64 bit *, I installed all the drivers from the Toshiba site,
and I am facing a problem with some drivers,
1 - BIOS update v B2.10 - EC1.60 the message "this computer not supported.
2 - v Eco Utility 188.8.131.52 the message "no supported BIOS.
3 - PC Health Monitor 184.108.40.206 v & v 220.127.116.11 the message "not support".
4 - TV Tuner v 18.104.22.168 nothing happens.
Can anyone help?
Have you installed the Toshiba value added Package?
You need the correct PVAT designed for the Qosmio F60 and Win7 64-bit. Take a look at the Toshiba site (section support/drivers).
I have just installed a new western digital internal hard drive for my toshiba. The problem is that my computer called the unknown hard disk and also need of a digital signature. How can I fix these problems?
You must follow the instructions provided with your hard drive. This would involve the creation of a partition and format. If you have a Windows 7 installation disk, you can boot from it and simply follow the instructions on the screen. However, you need to get the drivers you need from Toshiba. If you can get the discs to restore the factory settings, this would be ideal because that would include drivers AND software pre-installed. This includes free software from Toshiba. On my Toshiba Satellite L755 I bought in December, it came with instructions to create these discs. If you did, you're all set. If you do not, well see what you can get from Toshiba.
When you got your system back as you, I invite you to buy an external hard drive, and a good backup 3rd party program. You can configure it to automatically do everything in time and frequency of your choice. 1.5 TB external hard drives is approximately $90 these days and a very good FREE backup program corresponds to the Easeus todo backup free of charge that you can download from
http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm . Who can make you save a lot of time and frustration, the next time something like this happens. Sooner or later, it happens to all computers for one reason or another.
I have the Satellite pro A200 (PSAE4E-03401FDU). The LT has an option for a 2nd hard drive, but it is not included a cable.
Someone knows the reference to the 2nd hard drive cable?
When you remove the HARD drive to the second HDD can see HDD SATA conector?
My question is about the HP Pavilion Entertainment dv6-1230us PC. Recently, it was abandoned, and since then it has been giving me the following message if poster every time it starts.
Not found boot device
Please install an operating system on your hard drive.
Hard Drisk (3F0)
F2 System Diagnostics
"For more information, please visit: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup"
I know it's important to run the hard drive test, but when I run the diagnostics of the system for the Test drive, it says:
"HDD test failed.
There is no hard drive.
I was also on the proposed site and even after "reset my BIOS to default", it recommends running the hard drive test, which does not simply because it has not really helped me the "there is no hard drive. There was a YouTube video that I came across thus suggested pulling the hard drive and diconnecting and reconnect to correct the error in this case that the son is detached, but that no longer works.
SO, I don't know if there is anything more that I can do, I guess that the hard drive is super dead.
It comes with a Seagate ATA hard drive. I was wondering if I could replace it with a SATA hard drive or should it be an ATA? (Even has the material capacity to support a SATA drive?)
Also, it is even useful to replace the hard drive? Should I get a new laptop instead? This laptop is used mainly for just browsing online and checking emails.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Yes, the hard drive is so dead, that he not yet register as a hard drive. The dv6-1000 series certainly uses SATA, not ATA drives so I'm not sure of what you see. You can replace it with any drive SATA 2.5 inch width 9.5 mm thick.
Watch this video between: 53 and: 59 and see that it's a SATA drive. If yours is different, so you have confused with your model.
Hard disks are a small fraction of the cost of a laptop and if your what it takes to, I would say that to replace the hard drive rather than buy a new one.
It is an excellent drive at a great price:

I have a Toshiba Qosmio F60 - 11: when I installed in triple-boot Windows 7, Debian and OpenSuse. I have trouble using the Yuan STK7700D integrated dvb - t tuner, because I was unable to find the suitable driver for Linux.
You know how I can fix this problem?
Linux is not supported by Toshiba, so you're on your own. You can check is supported by the manufacturer directly and see if they offer a Linux support.
By the way: If you have Win7 you can watch TV on Win7.
I need to know what to do in response to: "short hard drive DST-Failed", failure ID: 60E3KV - 0007Q 9 - WPTXOK - 60QD03 on a desktop pavilion p6-2330.
When the computer is turned on, it presents a loop; try to solve the problem, but unable to do so.
The memory test is 'spent '.
SMART hard disk check is 'passed '.
This 24 character of error codes when generated from the HARD drive test indicates a Smart failure or disk Self Test - in both cases, this means that the drive is defective and must be replaced.
You always have access to the data stored on the disk? If you do, then save as much information as possible and look for a replacement drive. If the product is still under warranty, you can contact support, but in case you have no guarantee and you would like a guide to replacing the hard drive yourself – please let me know.
I hope this helps and good luck!
Mylène for the long post - but think if give good info, I poss of correct answer:
After the crash of QOSMIO G20... managed to reinstall of XP Recovery DVD-ROM. Immed after, looked at the config with Win Explorer and two hard drives all present and correct. even copied a picture of my images on the D: drive, just to make sure that all aok.
Then downloaded SP3 and tried to install - it reported failure and then shut down the PC. After attempts to get again - until finally resorted to reuse the Recovery DVD-ROM.
Come back XP again - but now, while the BIOS sees two hard drives (reports size, Fab details, etc.), as far as Windows is concerned, it does not exist.
Tried to initialize in disk management - no sign there.
He was then released, put it in a shopping cart, connected to the office and initialized and formatted - then returned to mobile... zilch!
Your kind suggestions and recommendations could save just the remaining strands terrified of hair of a violent end...
A lot of TIA
Normally, if the BIOS recognizes the HARD drive, but not Windows, this means that the HARD disk is not formatted, but it must be visible under the Windows disk management.
You see it now?
If not it is not easy to say what the reason are you should try load default settings in the BIOS and save it. Then start Windows and check if HDD is visible there too.
In the worst case, it s that a malfunction of the HARD disk controller, but what you can test if swap you the two drives and put them in another location.
Hi - the hard drive on my Pavilion 4070 - crashed us, so I bought a replacement - a Samsung SSD 850 EVO, 256GB drive. The problem is that I can't seem to get the recovery disks to work, and neither Microsoft nor HP is willing to help me. Of course, Microsoft tells me they don't give me any help for Windows7 OEM versions and HP said that my product is no longer supported so they do not help me. This is ridiculous - I own a legal copy of Windows 7 and I can't get any help from the company who sold me the computer?
What happens when I go through the process of installation with the recovery discs, is that instead of the Windows installation continue as it is supposed to, I have "no boot device - insert boot disk and press any key any." I'm desperate, I tried two different options - one was the minimum image recovery, the other was a factory restore. Nothing seems to work. What can I do? Moreover, the original hard drive is not * completely * dead - I can still access most of the data on it.
Yes... It works fine for me.

I recently acquired a desire m6-1105dx, that was wonderful, but there is one thing I am very furesterated with it is that the hard drive that he said would come with that, was 750 GB. Well, I have only 672 so I'm misssing 78 GB which is close enough to lack a set 100 gb I don't really find who either acceptable, I know that hard drives usually (or always) are not exactly the amount but I think lossing only storage type cheat me of what I paid for... I noticed only today when they told me my hard drive was full (for some reason, I never checked it once I received it guess I shouldn't just assume I get what I pay more) now I can't even support for this issue because my warranty is up... I feel a bit like it's FRAUD. Sorry I have no need to get out the word, but I feel really cheated I used laptop computers HP for 10-12 years now and never had no problem, I had probably 5 laptop computers HP although I never had no problem getting support from them then. I once spilled a drink on my keyboard. I called them to tell them and see if I could order a new but before I even had a chance to ask how the keyboard was etc etc... they offerened send me a new expedition and all FREE. HP PLEASE help me understand this point before I get really disappointed... and not to toot my own horn, but you don't want to see me I had thousands of clients and members of the family I know with certainty of the employee would be willing to boycott because of something as stupid as this. I swear it's like trying to break into fort knox, just trying to find a way to get help because my warranty is expired, they said I would have to pay for a support call... and gave me no option to use the chat or e-mail, so this is my last hope, post a message here... Thanks for your time everybody and I'm sorry if I offened anyone that I know, most of the people running things like that have very littl e access for comfortable people correcctly. Once again
You can check the WHOLE hard drive? Your duty to account
(a) recovery partition,
(b) HP_TOOLs partition,
(c) and inportantly 750 GB is NOT 750 GB, it's only 750,000,000,000 bytes. They use decimal and Windows uses the number of the HEXAGON.
For example, the following HDD RAW is an a HARD drive TB. You can yourself using the SPELL of training the number:
This is in anticipation of the next clean install of Windows 10 ISO.
It is understood that I need to move from Win 7 to win 10 first, before clean install. (Select MS verify the legitimacy)
It is understood that I need to reformat the hard drive before a clean install.
It is also understood that the "recovery disk" can reformat the hard disk.
One of my computers in Win 7 I would successfully created the "recovery discs. (Wonderful)
Problem: My other Windows 7 (Vista upgrade) will not let me create the "recovery discs.
When you do: start / run / recovery
It allow me to create "backup and restore disks. (This is not the recovery disks that I need).
Question: How do I reformat my another computer on Windows 7 (Vista upgrade)?
Note: Two computers are different: the first is a HP, the other is a gateway.
("Partitions" of hard drives may be different.)
I don't know: if I can use the recovery made the first computer disc to reformat my second hard drive? If this isn't the case, I'll be in trouble, because I don't know how to reformat my second computer.
You need to use the means to reinstall that you can upgrade Windows Vista Setup to format the drive.
The other system recovery media is likely to not work, but you can always try, but have appropriate reinstall media just in case.
For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.
It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.
Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:
