Dell :: D430 Hard Drive Failure

Oct 8, 2008

We've got 2 D430's in house and they are awesome. One of them just had the hard drive stop working and it was confirmed by swapping drives between the two systems. These have a 2.5" proprietary connection and Dell is telling me that there is no way to access the drive to potentially recover the data since its not a standard PATA interface. It's got some really small ribbon connector on the drive that hooks into a custom connection to the D430.

Does anyone have any ideas, or familiarity with how we can get access to this drive so we can run some utilities on it? Dell seems to be of little help here and the D430 simply doesn't recognize the drive at all. I'm not sure I would have bought these systems knowing that this was a potential issue.

I'm hoping there is some know interface that will allow the drive to hook into a standard PATA connection to recover data.

Dell :: Hard Drive Failure Of Primary Drive On Studio 15

Feb 13, 2009

I hate for this to be my first post, but after looking everywhere on the internet and on this site (I've been lurking a while) I'm still at the same place I started with my Studio 15 laptop. I'll try to include as much detail as possible.

I had my laptop plugged into my LCD tv via an HDMI cable as I often do, and when I went to close the laptop to use just the LCD, the tv flashed, showed a blue screen of death for a quick second and then went black. I opened the laptop and it was still on, but the screen wouldn't go on.

I restarted my computer and from there on out it kept making a beeping noise and stalling for a really long time at the "Dell Studio/progress bar" screen. After leaving it at that screen for a while the clicking stop and then it allowed me to access the Boot Options and Setup. Under setup, when I click on the drive under SATA hard drive, it shows something like 10GB and nothing more, and I have no options on the screen .....

Dell :: Hard Drive Failure[ish]? What Should I Do Now?

Oct 10, 2009

My WD 320gb hard drive failed for the first time since I got it in January by registering the error 2000 0141.

I phoned dell after it wouldn't turn on again and I reseated the drive, took out battery, powered on to discharge static etc.,

he arranged for a replacement drive to be sent on monday. after that I tried again last night and now it works., typing from it now, and no noises or anything seems to be functioning fine!

So, what should i do now?
install the new drive & all my software - real pain, but knowing new drive won't fail? did the error message mean my current drive is on the way out anyway?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Power Up - Hard Drive Failure

Nov 5, 2014

Unit powered up fine before, no issue's....worked like a champ until drive failure.

Had a hard drive error code, replaced w/ upgraded 500GB from 320GB. Computers are not my acumen although I found that I can take them apart and put them back together w/o issue-so far. Rebuilt my old Toshiba Satellite base, top, charger jack, screen, perfectly!  It would be the drive which slides in on the left,, held by two screws, not the disk drive unit.

Powered up fine, than several minutes later powered off. Charger is fine, I replaced the charger jack, still won't power up.

I broke the WLAN white connector, pulled the male end off the board by accident., black OK. It  broke when I went to replace the charger port. That wouldn't cause it to not power up though right?

I replaced the complete charger port board, not just the port. Seems something happened after I replaced the new driver card

Sony :: Z Series Hard Drive Failure (US Laptop In UK)

Feb 4, 2010

I have an almost-new Z series, bought in the US (I am in the UK) in December.

It seems the hard drive has failed, as it started BSODing on boot. I tried to run the recovery partition and also Windows 7 recovery mode from a Windows 7 install disc, and these simply hung. Further attempts to fix it using Windows XP and Windows Vista media also failed with similar issues.

I was able to boot using NTFS4Dos, although it didn't seem to read my data partition very well, as files were missing.

Booting with Knoppix was more fruitful, as everything seemed to be there. I rewrote the MBR and didn't get anywhere, so then I deleted the three partitions (recovery, Windows reserved, and data partition) and started again.

Now Windows installs, but it BSODs after the first reboot.

I guess my hard drive has failed, somehow (there are no mysterious noises, and I don't recall any impacts, it's remotely possible my kids took a magnet to it, however).

HP Envy 17-j162no :: Instant Hard Drive Failure

Oct 6, 2013

I bought yesterday  new notebook, HP ENVY 17-j162no. The very first time (and each time later) I started the laptop, I got an error of smart drive failure. I have never before on any computer experienced that even after such an error, nothing seems to be broken. I went to BIOS and ran the examining tool, and you can see below the results.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Hard Drive SMART Short Self Test Failure

Feb 17, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron N5110. The Warranty ran out in July of last year so for some reason I cannot email technical support directly.I ran the Dell PC Diagnostic test earlier today, all of which passed with the exception of the SMART Short Self Test which failed. Apparently my hard drive is "operating outside of normal parameters and should be replaced". I tried this twice, once with the Dell diagnostic software installed on my laptop and once using the downloadable diagnostics from the Dell website, both had the same outcome.  

I then tried the system diagnostics accessed via the F12 key on system startup. Again all passed but the hard drive test which would not run and provided the following message:

Error code 2000-0142
validation 12985
Msg Hard Drive 0 s/n (omitted), self test unsuccessful status = 7

I have read around on the support forums that the next step to try is removing and replacing the hard drive then re-running the diagnostics. If this does not solve the issue and I have to replace the hard drive does that mean I will need to buy a new copy of windows to install on the hard drive, as my laptop came with no disks? I have backed up all my important files but obviously not any programs.

what my next steps would be and what the process is should I have to replace my hard drive? I am a "noob" in this area and don't want to spending uneccassary money on parts that don't need to be replaced or buying software I don't need to replace as it is already available if you see what I mean?

HP Pavilion Dv6-2140EI OS/Software :: Hard Drive Failure - No Recovery Partition

Apr 23, 2014

I have a Pavilion DV6-2140EI notebook with a failed hard drive. I purchased a new hard drive but to my surprise, all recovery disks or system image files are useless without the recovery partition on the drive. It appears that HP and Microsoft teamed up to not support hard drive failure. As you no longer get the original operating system on disk anymore, it looks like one is forced to purchase Windows again after hard drive failure.

HP Envy 14-2160se :: Hard Drive Failure - Disk Read Error Occurred

Sep 21, 2014

There's a "disk read error occured" when I startup and it won't boot into windows at all. I did a hard disk test in BIOS and the Short DST failed and the failure id is GTU23F-5QF788-XD6V5F-60UR0 for Hard Disk 1. I know there's an 80 SSD and 750 HD but which one failed?
If the ssd failed can I use the 750gb HD or does it need both?
If I do need to replace the SSD can I replace it with a regular HD (on a budget) and what size drive do I need? 2.5?

Dell :: Need To Save Hard Drive Files From Laptop Where Drive Might Be Damaged

Jan 3, 2009

Something recently happened to my laptop, and now whenever I boot up my laptop, I get a message stating that "No drive detected", and I don't know if the hard drive might be damaged or not.

I tried connecting the hard drive directly to a desktop pc since it's a sata hard drive, but my desktop pc just froze on the boot screen whenever this hard drive was connected.

I also was going to try and use a hard drive external case to maybe connect it to the pc this way, but I wasn't sure if it would work

Dell :: XPS 1640: Replace Slot Loading Optical Drive With Hard Drive And Caddy

Sep 29, 2009

I'm thinking of removing my DVD drive and replacing it with a caddy and hard drive as explained here.

I don't use the DVD drive very often and would much prefer a 500GB or 1TB hard drive in there. The DVD drive can then be used externally via the eSATA port using this cable.

The ideal solution would be to use this NewmodeUS caddy as it supports the larger 12.7mm 1TB 2.5" hard drives and has a removable faceplate. The problem is the price.

At $55 including postage to the UK plus customs, VAT and clearance fees on top it's going to work out pretty expensive for what is essentially a slimline SATA to SATA extension

Dell Inspiron 7720R :: RST Drive Failure When Turn On Computer After Hibernation

Apr 29, 2013

I recently went to turn my computer on after putting it into hibernation, and was greeted with an error screen telling me one of my RST drives had failed. After hitting CTRL-I and going into the config for it, I was able to disable RST completely and get my computer to boot back up. However, the "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" monitoring program now shows no RST drive, and I am not sure how to troubleshoot it further without potentially affecting my C: drive. The computer is also running noticeably slower, though I would guess that's because it no longer has the SSD available.

I have already run the pre-startup diagnostics (F12 at boot) and have found no errors. I would like to know if this is something that can be corrected on my own, or if I will have to request parts or service from Dell. For reference, the laptop is a 7720R.

HP Pavilion Dv5-2077cl OS/Software :: How To Install New Hard Drive And Create Recovery Disks Before Installing New Drive

Aug 20, 2011

HP Pavilion Dv5-2077cl Entertainment NotebookProduct #: WQ799UA#ABAWindows 7 64-bit

I have been getting a random blue screen popping up every once and a while, that will "dump my physical memory" or something and then reboot itself after like 30 seconds. my hard drive was the reason for these constant errors. So I backed everything up, in preparation of a real crash. I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive from, and I would like to know if it is hard to replace a hard drive in a notebook, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. Also, I dont think I have the Operating system disc that came with my computer, so how do I order that from HP and how much is it?And last but not least, Is there a post or video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and the operating system?

Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.
