Getting "reading error" of boot sector of harddrive w/ AVG 7.1 virus scan -- ???

Q: Getting "reading error" of boot sector of harddrive w/ AVG 7.1 virus scan -- ???

Hi,

I just downloaded the newest updates for the free AVG anti-virus, etc. (7.1) and ran the scan for my harddrive. For some reason, in the second entry of the scan (which is for the boot sector of drive c, my harddrive), it says there was a reading error:

Object: Boot sector of disc C:
Result: Reading error
Status: Error

...however, there was never any error before I updated to 7.1 (though that could be a coincidence). Before, it would just say:

Object: Boot sector of disc C:
Result: Ok
Status: Quick checked

Why would this be? My computer boots up fine, so what does it mean that there's an error reading the boot sector? And is this something I can/should fix somehow?

I also have ZoneAlarm and am running Windows 98SE.

Any help is appreciated -- thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:CDROM => "Error Reading Sector 1054 (0)"

"Error Reading Sector 1054 (0)" means that your CD-ROM drive is having problems reading data from a particular section of your CD-ROM.
Your CD-ROM is divided up into Manny sectors.

Could be dirt , use water & hand soap to clean CD , make sure CD is dry before inserting into player ;
- could be scratches on the CD , usually your CD is ripe for archiving into the round bin next to your desk (bey bey cd) ;
- could be dirt on the lens inside your CD-ROM player , people can clean this lens but considering how cheap CD-ROM players are you better buy a new 1 with DVD capability ;
- could be security feature from the producers of the game , errors are included to make copying harder.

Hard core gamers :kuch: make a virtual cd-rom drive on there hard disk drive & store the CD somewhere safe never to see daylight again to prevent the original CD from getting damaged.
Or they make a copy

Is it possible for you to test the CD on a different PC ?

I tried formatting my hard drive using the provided software from the company I bought the computer from, but it did not install correctly. Now there is no Windows or any files of Windows showing up on my hard drive whatsoever.

Whenever I pop in the Windows CD to try and repair or re-install, I get an error that states "Disk Boot Sector is to be modified! Press Y to continue, any key to abort" and once I do, it seems like the Windows options are about to come up, but then it just shuts down my computer. Any thoughts or possible fixes? I'm not sure of the correct location for this thread so I put it here. Thanks in advance!

A:ERROR: "Disk Boot Sector is to be modified! Press Y to continue" then crash?

I'd try a bootable hard drive diagnostic that's available from the support website of the manufacturer of your hard drive. That'll let you know if the hard drive is failing and we can move on from there.

Hello im unsure where to place this thread. " Disc boot failure, insert system disc and press enter " Is the error i get after i took out an IDE 80GB HDD. The primary boot drive is a OCZ vertex 2 120GB. Somehow my pc will not boot unless the 80GB HDD is in. Im unsure how they are related so could anyone help me out so that i dont need the 80GB HDD to boot up anymore.

A:Taking out IDE harddrive error "Disc boot failure, insert system..."

When you installed the OCZ drive, it sound like you had the 80gb HD connected. So the boot up files got written to the 80 gb HD. Do you have a Win7 install DVD ? If so run startup repair 3 times in a row with the 80gb disconnected.

The quot Idle-time Full System Scan quot in Norton v is bogging down my computer constantly and there is no option to turn it off in quot Automatic Tasks quot I contacted Norton and after several attempts to find someone at Norton who could understand what I just said above and getting quot hung-up quot on over Norton chat Inexcusable I was able to get a hold of a technician who told me that Norton intentionally removed this option quot for security reasons because they didn t want people turning it off quot The problem is people will then be forced to turn it off by turning off ALL scheduled tasks under quot Settings Norton option Tasks" available under "Virus Scan" No v4: 360 "Settings/Automatic Scheduling Schedule Manual Schedule quot and that is an even worse security problem than the relatively small one that would be created by turning off idle-time full system scanning Once the system has completed a full system scan all files are on-access scanned anyway so running a full system scan every - days is rather silly and extremely annoying--especially because it will continue to try to run every time the system Norton 360 v4: No "Virus Scan" option available under "Settings/Automatic Tasks" is idle if you cancel it A warning urging the user to not turn off idle-time full system scans without fully understanding the risks and after explaining the risks would be VERY preferable Or at least the option to run the full system scans when the system is idle on a certain day of the month week The schedule for idle-time full system scans really needs to be separate from other tasks In fact the BEST solution would be the option to change the scheduling options for EACH automatic task INDIVIDUALLY--with the option to change EACH one to quot Automatic Weekly Monthly Manual quot By forcing people to turn off ALL automatic tasks in order to control that ONE idle-time virus scan option ALL or NONE Norton has made the security problem they are trying to avoid much worse So in the mean time does anyone know a registry setting that will turn off quot Idle-time full system scans quot un-check the invisible box without turning off the other automatic tasks nbsp

Welcome to TechSpot

I'm not sure about Norton Ghost (I use Drive Image instead).
It would not hurt to format that HD first in NTFS. Make the partition the same size as the backed-up one. If there is any space left, use that for a second partition.
Then do your Ghosting.

It is time for you to get another hard drive or two. I would advise instead of spliting up a single hard drive into 3 sections, use another drive for backing up important stuff. If that mutiple partitioned hard drive fails, like yours has, you loose everything

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that crashed a couple months ago. I posted several times on these forums trying to fix/ repair/ etc.. It ended up being a toasted HD. So I bought a new 320 GB HD. I just installed the new HD and when I put the flash stick in that has the latest Win 7 Home Premium with SP1 on it to try and do a reinstall, it comes up with the following. I must be missing a step or three. Please advise.

A:New HD for Inspiron -Win 7 INSTALL- "No boot sector on IHD..."

It's not booting the flash stick but trying to boot the unformatted internal HD.

At boot immediately start tapping the F12 key to get a boot menu. The flash stick should be listed under USB, REmovable or HD's - you may need to expand an entry to see it listed. Choose it and it should load files and install.

If not then rewrite your flash stick with the latest official ISO and tool in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

OS is Win2k. I ran norton virus-check after renewing the subscription on the net, when i returned the pc was frozen in mid-scan. No response to ctl-alt-del or anything. There were error messages about being unable to write to a log file and a connection may have been lost etc.
Eventually i switched off the pc, but then it would not run after that. Once powered, it comes up with a black screen & error message :
"Invalid partition boot sector, press any key to restart loading operating system"
but pressing any key just repeats the same message each time. You also get this short low 'burrrp' sound from the hard drive each time one presses a key.
Can anyone help ?
Thanks
 

A:"Invalid partition boot sector"

Not positive on win 2000, but on win '98 etc you would run the boot floppy and at command prompt type fdisk /mbr which would restore the master boot record which has been corrupted / lost.

It actually sounds as though you had a multi-partite virus freelove, onehalf.3544 etc which affect the boot sector and give errors exactly like what you have, including the 'press any key' part.

I have actually been getting this error for the past month, at least since March 29th. I've made several attempts to work around it but to no avail. It appears that there is an error with the other browsers as well. I have searched for solutions for this for several weeks, none of which fit my problem. I uninstalled my clamwin antivirus in favor of Windows Security Essentials, though, most people have fixed this problem by messing with AVG? I don't think I have AVG on my computer?

Anyway, if someone knows how to solve this problem please let me know, I'm willing to try anything.

Hi all,
I received help here a few days ago about reinstalling MS Photo Editor on my computer. Somehow Windows Picture Gallery had taken over and I've since downloaded MS Photo Editor and set it as my default to view photos. The new problem is that I just uploaded new photos to my computer from my Canon Powershot and when I click to open them with MS photo editor I get an error message saying "Error opening file." MS Photo Editor is opening all of my old photo files just fine - it seems to be these new ones off my camera that are giving me trouble. When I open them with Windows Photo Gallery they open fine, but I hate using that program. Any advice? I'm so frustrated!

A:Dream Scene Stop Working After Restarting "error reading original wallpaper bitmap"

You have altered the original BitMap photo of the calendar by adding events and Dream Scene cannot find the original un-altered photo so it gives you a black screen. I don't think you are going to be able to have an active calendar for a screen saver that you can add events to, as far as I know.

Hi there-
I am in the process of re-imaging my laptop (Sony VAIO Win XP Home) and at about "66%" complete of Recovery Disk 2, it tells me "Critical Error Abort Retry Ignore Fail". I have no idea waht is going on, as I completed this successfully about 1 month ago. Also, soemtimes it asks me for a "Command line"...but I have no idea what to do. The system was orignally FAT32 with 2 partitions. I am interested in making it 1 partition. Regardless, I can't do anything because now I have nothing!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

A:Win7 pro startup error "Boot MGR missing"/"Operating System Not Found

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

I am posting this for a friend so he at least can get past the first hurdle. He is unable to start any programs or connect to the internet. Whenever he clicks on something he gets a popup that says "Click here to run scan" ... which he says must be a virus. He started in safe mode and ran Super Antispyware, but it didn't help.
 

A:Virus? Can't open programs or internet, popup says "Click on here to run scan"

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

After that last error message he can't even start his computer. If he purchased Windows 7 and tried to install that would it clean out the old windows and fix everything automatically? Or, does whatever is in there have to be fixed first, before he can install it. He got the system from someone awhile ago so he doesn't have the installation discs, he is going to check with him. I just thought it might be easier to install the new windows instead, and it might be cheaper overall then taking it to geek squad or whatever they're called. Not sure what to do in this situation, never had it that bad with any of my problems.

Question: Is there a way to turn off Microsoft Word’s virus scanning feature? I’m having a problem with Word running a virus scan any time I open a file. It really slows me down as I am constantly opening and closing documents.
Answer: Norton Antivirus has a Word plugin that is known to cause problems with opening documents and slowing down computers using it. This plugin remains even if you have removed Norton AV for years.

To remove the plugin download and run:

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe
This exe will remove all the Norton applications from your system.

In Word, there is an annoyance that really gets to me. Every time I open a file in Word, it says on the bottom of the screen, "Requesting Virus Scan", and it drives me nuts because it takes about 20 seconds to open the file. Now, all my Word files are ones created by me only. I know there is no virus present. So, how do I disable this feature. I looked all through the Word options. Also, I looked through my anti-virus software, which by the way is Norton Anti Virus, version 8.07.17c.

Frequently when I start up Word 2003 (& Xp before that), in Windows XP, I get the message on the bottom left "Running virus scan ..." and it takes forever to open. And the same thing happens sometimes when I open a file. I'm using Norton Anti-Virus and Zone Alarm firewall. They take care of the email virus scanning. I really don't need internal scanning like this that holds me up for so long. How do I put a stop to it?

Whenever I plug in my USB device it wants to "scan and fix" but works if I just continue. On the other hand the G drive which is for my SD card gives me errors of corruption even before I took it out for the first time. Something is up with the drives and they are updated and all that. Also, with the SD card it doesn't let me delete and when I do add it is just the folder without the contents which then I can't delete. Help me fix this problem. I have a LX series Gateway computer with the pop up drive if that gives you any idea what I am dealing with.

PS: Should have bought a Mac.

I am running MS Word 2003 on Windows XP, and it takes something like 2 minutes to start up because it is "Requesting virus scan ..." From reading other articles about this issue on the web, it seems this is activity from Norton Anti-Virus, but I no longer am using NAV. I even used the symNRT.exe uninstall utility provided on the NAV website, but Word is still requesting a virus scan.

I'm now using the McAfee VirusScan provided by AOL, but I don't see any options that would be responsible for doing this. So are there remnants of NAV still on my computer, or is Word still looking for a component that no longer exists, or is it something else I am missing? What can I do to get rid of this behavior?

Thanks in advance! You guys are great!

Ran- hi jack this, norton, avira, malware bytes, msoft sec essentials. which found the trojans first go but all the rest come up ok multiple times. and the font systemwide is garbled and crappy.

The particulars = When video card is updated to 2010 driver (geforce 6600. yeah a 05 card) the font is normal and videocard wont work.

When i format the font is clear for a few minutes then garbled back again for good.

should i get anew card?

Bless.

A:Corrupt font after "SCAN" virus...

1. Reformat and clean install the system, make sure there is no malware
2. Get the right driver for your card, GF6600 is quite old and not every driver will work - not necessarily the latest (know this from my own experience, a few years ago I had GF6600 AGP8x)
3. Stress test it FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
4. If you see any artifacts at standard clocks, especially if you see them before you log in to windows, that means the card bit the dust. Hopefully not.

Download these free apps and check your system.

Malwarebytes

CCleaner - CCleaner 2.0 (Backup Registry When Prompted)

This will clean up the system files and repair any minor errors.

My uncle managed to scew his computer up, whenever it starts windows, the monitor starts displaying "out of scan range". I know what the problem is, he changed his display settings to something the monitor couldnt handle, but I dont know how to fix it if I cant see anything in windows?? It will display in safe mode, but changing the display settings in safe mode doesnt fix the problem. Is it possible to fix this if I used a boot disc? The only idea I can come up with is to get a command line program that changed resolution manually, but I dont think that would work

Hi there.

Those are most probably false positives. What files are being detected as such?

When something is labeled "Generic" it means that McAfee doesn't know what it is but that it looks like something else it knows about.

I looked online for troubleshooting solutions, and I have so far found two options:

-Re-download because the error could be the result of a failed download that wasn't identified when the file was downloaded.

-Find and delete old files that could be stopping the file from being reaad properly.

I need help with the second solution, as in how I search for those files. Also, any other solutions for this problem would be much appreciated.

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Are bad sectors always irreversible hardware problems How do programs test for bad sectors and could it be possible for soft data errors to come up as damaged blocks even if they are physically just fine I recently had a drive come into my possession that had completely failed within the laptop it was used The Windows system failed at every boot CHKDSK run from installation media would spend days on end trying to make repairs and reformatting and reinstalling Windows was unsuccessful So the first thing Sector" errors? by blocks caused write Bad False "Bad Positives: I did with this disk was plug it into my "Bad Sector" False Positives: Bad blocks caused by write errors? desktop and run a surface test in "Bad Sector" False Positives: Bad blocks caused by write errors? Paragon Hard Disk Manager It found tons of bad sectors and I was convinced the drive was trashed The weird thing was there were two partitions and only one partition had errors so I suspected maybe it wasn't purely a hardware problem To test this hypothesis I wiped the entire drive to zeros and told it to verify every bit There were no errors I then ran another surface test on extreme mode and found no bad blocks I then formatted the drive to NTFS and scanned the file system in Paragon with slightly enigmatic results It came back saying there are no bad blocks and listed no problems in the log but for some reason it said there were quot minor problems quot As expected viewing it in any file manager showing hidden shows nothing and dir in cmd comes up as quot file not found quot but strangely the file system test said that there were directories and files I ran CHKDSK and Windows told me that it found no errors I could run another surface test but I'm worried that if I keep testing and testing I might encourage this drive to move closer to the end of its life Were the bad blocks I found simply caused by write errors or temporary data damage Is it possible that most of the ills of this drive were fixed by the wipe Or is it more likely that this is only temporarily masking the real problem and I will very soon see problems again I know it's impossible for you to know for sure but I'm wondering what your experiences would lead you to predict

A:"Bad Sector" False Positives: Bad blocks caused by write errors?

There are two types of bad blocks - physical and logical. Physical bad sectors are surface defects which can't be repaired. Logical bad sectors are those which are physically good but the ECC ( Error Correction Code ) of that sector became corrupted and hence OS can't read data from it. Logical bad sectors can be repaired by low level formatting the drive or writing zeros to the surface.

Although physical bad sectors can't be repaired by performing a low level format, all modern hard drives incorporates a technique called "Sector Remapping" to repair bad sectors. All hard drives will have a hidden area of reserved sectors ( sector reserve pool ). When the disk controller detects a bad sector, it will mark the physical address of that sector as bad in an internal table named "G-List" ( Growing Defect List ) and allocate a good sector from the pool to replace it's logical address. This process is called "Remapping" and is transparent to the user and OS.

Usually the remapping process is happened like this ;

1. Disk Controller performs a media scan to verify sectors when the disk is in idle stage ( Background Media Scan ). If a sector is identified as bad or unstable, it's physical address will be marked on an internal list called "Current Pending Sectors". Usually the total number of pending sectors can be viewed in the SMART log.

2. When the next time this pending sector is accessed by OS (usually a write operation), disk controller will move the data stored in that sector to a spare one and the sector will be marked as bad in the "G-List".
So when you perform a zero wipe, following will happen.

1. Logical sectors will be repaired ( ECC code will be reset ).

2. Performing zero write to physically bad sectors which are marked to be pending will force the remapping. Since the logical address of bad sectors are remapped, it will look like the defects are repaired to the user.

For more info, please refer - Bad Sector Remapping - Data Recovery | 0800 072 3282

Although the disk may looks like working after the zero wipe, i won't suggest to use it as the disk may be unstable and hence it may fail again soon.

Hi,
I bought a WD Passport 1 year ago, and I've tried to test it by HD Tune Pro and Hard Disk Sentinel.
And result are listed below:





How could I fix this error? I feel my drive doesn't work softly anymore
Thank you so much!

A:How to fix "Current Pending Sector Count" on WD External Drive

What does "work softly" mean?

https://kb.acronis.com/content/9133

which says:

"Current Pending Sector Count S.M.A.R.T. parameter is a critical parameter and indicates the current count of unstable sectors (waiting for remapping). The raw value of this attribute indicates the total number of sectors waiting for remapping. Later, when some of these sectors are read successfully, the value is decreased. If errors still occur when reading some sector, the hard drive will try to restore the data, transfer it to the reserved disk area (spare area) and mark this sector as remapped.

Recommendations

This is a critical parameter. Degradation of this parameter may indicate imminent drive failure. Urgent data backup and hardware replacement is recommended."

You could run checkdisk and see if the number changes.

Or you could reformat, which is a drastic step and may not help.

Or you could adopt a policy of "watchful waiting" and hope. Hope that it doesn't get worse, while keeping your personal data backed up elsewhere.

Or you could throw in the towel and buy a new drive now, if this is causing you to lose sleep.

Hey Allen. I would call Western Digital support and see what they say.Since you have data on it you need, I wouldn't play around with it, get some answers from the drive makers, and as is always said, have important data backed up in at least 2 different places, with at least one being to CD/DVD.

We are getting the above error randomly on some of the laptops we have deployed. The error comes right after you boot or when the windows 7 is left running. There are no special software running. The error in details is below.
"The boot configuration Data (BCD) settings for the following boot application have changed since Bitlocker was enabled
boot appplication: \windows\system32\winload.exe
change settings: 0x26000090
You must supply a bitlocker recovery key to start this system.
Confirm that the changes to the BCD settings are trusted.

If the changes are trusted then suspend and resume bitlocker. This will reset bitlocker to use the new BCD settings.
Otherwise restore the original BCD settings"
 
Can anyone please explain on how to correct this error. As before this is happening on few of the machines and we are seeing more as we go. Any tips would be nice...Thanks

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hi!
I'm really curious about hard drives and what is considered an "iffy" reallocated sector count in terms of hard drive longevity (is she ready to blow? ). My ancient Toshiba Satellite A205 Vista home basic 32bit SP2 was misbehaving when I took it to a hot, humid climate and I was sure it was on its last legs. I bought a newer Toshiba which is now having trouble and now my old Toshiba is running GREAT (back in cooler climate), with a little love I am trying to keep it alive as long as possible as it seems indestructable! Dropping it! Slamming the lid shut! Years banged about in Brasil and Africa! Ant colony invasions! TSA numbskull handling! Diskcheck is fine, harddrive says fine, but what of this reallocated count?

When I plugin an external USB hard disc or USB stick it appears that Windows 7 pops up a dialog window asking me:

"Do you want to scan and fix removable disc?"

After reading a while in Internet I saw two methods for disabling these popups:

1.) Disabling service "Shell Hardware detection"

2.) enabling "Turn off Autoplay" in gpedit.msc

Whats the difference?

I want be sure that if I plugin a new USB device (like an USB stick or USB printer or USB hard disc) this USB hardware IS successfuly detected and joined by Windows 7.

So I can imagine that the first method is too brutal because it prevents inclusion of new USB devices

Is this correct?

If yes: Why is it recommended so often for avoiding the popup?

Peter

A:Disable popup "Do you want to scan and fix remov.device""? 2 methods?

You get that message because Windows detects something wrong with the file system on the device. This can happen if the device was unplugged without "Safely Removing Hardware", and a transfer was not complete.

The methods you mention just mask the problem.

You can let Windows scan and fix the drive, choose: fix file system errors.
or, do a full format on the drive, not the quick format.
Or, run Chkdsk /f X: manually, X = the problem drive letter, you may have to run it more than once.

It is always a good idea to move all data off the drive first, then copy it back after the fix is complete. This also fixes bad file problems that can contribute to the error.

The drive probably has it's "Dirty Bit" set. This is a single Hex value that tells Windows the file system is no good. Chkdsk and formatting will often reset the dirty bit, but sometimes not on the first attempt.

To see if the dirty bit is set:
Open a command prompt > Start > type: cmd > right-click on Command Prompt and choose “Run as administrator”
and then type:
fsutil dirty query x:
(substitute the letter "x" with the drive letter that is giving you problems)

If the dirty bit is set you will get a message that "Volume X is DIRTY".

Keep running chkdsk /r , or chkdsk /f /r until the dirty bit clears.

Hi

Have tried going into the Advanced BIOS menu and changing boot priorities 1, 2 and 3 to "Hard Drive" - no help
(NB. 1st option, "Hard disk Boot priority" (where it says press enter) cannot be changed from "Bootable Add in cards". Not sure if this is significant)

My other computer got some sort of virus. Some sort of generic "Virus Scan" started running. I was not able to stop it. I was not able to get my McAfee to run. I was able to shut down the computer and restart in safe mode, but I can't hit the internet to download DDS in safe mode.

I tried to run McAfee in safe mode, it wouldn't. Tried to run AVG in safe mode, it wouldn't.

I'll subscribe to this thread.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I am trying to load NT on a computer. It worked fine. Added SP6 and rebooted fine. Added sound card driver, vid. drivers, and network card drivers. Rebooted and I get this error. It then goes and tries to boot from CDROM and then says press N to boot from network. It then says "Boot failure Insert boot disk in A: press any key when ready" Of course, I didn't make a repair disk either. I am on location and need a fix ASAP. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello buddies I have a gb WD EIDE Internal Hard Drive It is quite old more than years old I did not know about the S M A R T things before I bought a new gb WD hdd I installed the new drive as my primary drive to boot "Reallocated to do? Sector What Count".. from and then downloaded some utilities to check my hard disks speed as I was feeling a bit of down grade in the older hard drive speed HD Tune highlighted the quot Reallocated Sector Count quot SMART attribute of the older GB hard drive It gave me following data Current Worst Threshold Data After searching a bit on net I came to know that this actually shows bad sectors on the hard disk "Reallocated Sector Count".. What to do? I also learned about Zeroing the drive that it may get the values back to normal I dont know how it does or maybe its not true So I backup-ed my data and zeroed the drive but now when I check it in HD Tune or any other such utility like Everest and Active Smart it still shows the same data Can anyone please suggest me what should I do The hard disk after "Reallocated Sector Count".. What to do? zeroing the drive is showing quot Un Initialized State quot in disk management Will be grateful John Wright nbsp

Hey Guys,

So I pulled my external harddrive off the desk last night. Now windows wants to format it. No clicking, no bad noises, just dosnt recognize it.

I think I scrapped the boot sector or something.

Anyone know any way to repair this and return to using it like normal withought having to pull all the info off using a recovery tool, then reformat?

I have ultimate boot CD, just not sure which tool to use/how to use it. (used to use this to fix a previos harddrive a long time ago..)

Hi there!

One of our CPUs and monitor gave up most of the ghost. I monitor is hosed, I tested so that is no biggie... But the CPU says that the CPU fan is not running, press F2 to continue boot or it will shut down in 5 seconds.
If I press F2, it boots fine. I have a new HD in the CPU because my boss REALLY needed his computer and I had a spare. So he is set, but I am still dealing with his old one. I have checked the fans on the PS and the MB. BOTH are working. So am I missing something? It is a HP pc 864n Media center.

Thanks!
 

A:Error message "CPU Fan is not working" On boot. Press F2 to boot...

It could be that the CPU fan is connected directly to the PSU rather then on the CPU_FAN connector on the motherboard &/or the CPU fan is spinning at such a low RPM level that the motherboard cannot detect it.

If the CPU fan is spinning & the temps are decent, then you shouldn't worry.
