[SOLVED] Corrupted FAT table?

Q: [SOLVED] Corrupted FAT table?

My daughter's IBM ThinkPad 600E won't boot up into Windows 98SE. It tries to run scandisk but gives an error message that the FAT table is bad and it can't run. It then freezes when trying to open Windows. I also can't boot into safe mode but can boot to a DOS prompt. Any idea of a utility that can fix the drive?

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Corrupted FAT table?

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am a complete novice so please be patient and talk to me like i'm a 6 year old if possible.
I have a 10 yr old hp with xp. I use a modem with Charter internet supplied by my apt complex for free. I recently bought a belkin router and a netgear tv box. Everything was working fine until we had a power outage during the night. The next morning nothing was working. A day later i got my modem, router and tv box to work. The computer worked after trying to turn it on 3 times. The monitor wouldn't come on at first. Now everything is working but i still can't get online. My connections say they are connected but nothing is received.
I ran the IE connection problem diagnostic tool and it says:
default gateway
no default gateway entry
corrupted routing table
the default route is missing or invalid
invalid IP address
could not connect HTTP connection
HTTPS and FTP connections

I have no idea what any of that means. Can you help? Thank you.

My Hitachi Touro 4TB disk partition got corrupted.
Originally it was one 4TB partition with about 2.5TB of files.

One minute it was fine, then it came up with "Need to format hard disk before use", then it wouldn't even start up.

The disk is currently mounted in a disk dock. The disk wouldn't start up in its original enclosure so there might have been a hardware problem with the electronics of the enclosure which corrupted the drive.

Now it has 3 partitions

465.75 GB RAW - Healthy (Primary Partition)
1582.25 GB Unallocated
1678.02 GB Unallocated.

I have tried TestDisk but for some reason after about an hour of scanning or so, the drive seems to switch off. But it seems fine when I'm using Windows software. I've tried writing MBR but TestDisk says it can't!!

Should I use something like easus partition manager and set the primary partition back to one 4TB partition and then use recovery software to recover the files or is there a better way?


A:Best way to sort out a corrupted partition table?

Sorry to say this, but in every instance where any of my partitions were reported as "raw", that mean that the drive had suffered physical damage. And, in NONE of those cases was I able to recover anything of any of the drives.

I had two fairly new Seagate drives do this to me last year, and in both cases, they were sudden head crashes.

Hello Sir,

First of all,to inform you, this has happened due to my mistake! and i am really very guilty about it.

The thing is that i have both ubuntu 12.04 and win 7 home basic installed on my system.
I installed ubuntu later so as expected the win7 loader was replaced by the grub loader.
What i wanted to do was restore my original win7 loader so that i could set my default OS to Win7 so that i didn't have to select it every time my system booted up.

In this regard,i searched some youtube videos and then ended up with a video which was not described very well, still i followed it because i wanted to get back the win7 loader desperately.
I am providing the link to that video:

Restoring Windows's Bootloader After Installing Linux - YouTube

I went ahead with the steps described in the video, And then shit happened.
My windows partition got corrupted and now i stand at the risk of losing about 500gb of important data which i had collected in about over an year.

I am able to boot using ubuntu but i am unable to browse my files on the hard disk(which i could do easily, earlier) as it doesn't show any partition.

When i inserted the recovery disc,it simply gives the option of restoring the factory settings,nothing else(like repair,which it used to give earlier).

My question to you sir, is that, is there any way through which i can restore my computer to normal and save my data?

I will be really very very grateful to anyone who helps me out of thi... Read more

I have a 20G hard disk that is (used to be) divided into 5 partitions.
When my computer booted up yesterday, only the C partition was visible -
the other partitions, containing all my personal files, installed games and
digital photos, had disappeared without a trace. Partition magic, which I had
used to partition the disk in the first place, informs me that "Logical drive
chain points to sector without partition table." Is there some utility that
can recover my partition table for me?

Silly me, I just saw the instructions here on how to post which I somehow missed before:

Hello everyone,
After I used "Acronis Disk Director" in a HirenBoot CD to cut some space from my D drive to my C drive (boot drive), I've got this "Windows is checking the D drive" then "Corrupted master file table. Checkdisk is aborted" on my D drive. After doing some homework, I've tried corrected it by using testdisk's Fix MFT function but "Both of the MFT files are corrupted. Can't fix".
I did not back up the whole partition.
Are there any other ways that I could try to fix this? I do not really want to buy $60 + commercial software that TestDisk recommends just to fix this possibly once-in-a-lifetime issue. However, if recovery softwares is the only option left, then I have to use them.
Cheers guys. I'd really appreciate any help.

I have a Western Digital MyBook ES 500 GB external hard drive (USB and eSATA interfaces) for data backups formatted from a Windows XP PC that I now use with my laptop running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. Recently my son connected it to his Apple PC and tried to create a partition to back up his files. Apparently this corrupted the partition table. I can no longer access any data on the hard drive. The drive does not appear in Computer but does appear in Device Manager and Disk Management.

I believe the problem is that the partition table (formatted for Windows) was modified by an Apple computer so that Windows can no longer tell what file system is on the partitions. My son is gone for a month and I no longer have access to his Apple computer so I can't plug the drive into an Apple computer to check if the drive gets detected.

I looked at the drive using:

1. Windows 7 Disk Management
2. Acronis Disk Director 11
3. EASEUS Partition Recovery (latest version)
4. Partition Wizard 5.2

None of them could do anything except delete or format the partitions. I saw no repair option or ability to mark the partitions as NTFS file system.

The partitions on my external drive are still there but no file system is shown for most of them. Acronis Disk Director shows the following information:

Hi I've ran a mem check through windows and it says my ram is fine. I was thinking of re-flashing my motherboard.
The story:
A week and a half ago I had to go back to windows 7 from windows 10. I did a clean install with a boot drive everything seemed fine then this blue screen happened. Updated it and everything the blue screen happened again. So... I reinstalled windows 7 again from my CD this time and wanted to upgrade to windows 10 and I got Safe OS error. Tried it with a boot driver had the same error again. Then it blue screened again. So I reinstalled windows up Updated it completely and it messed up with the updates.
I reseatted my ram switched slots reseated my gpu etc. I do not know why windows 7 is being so unstable when everything was fine when I had windows 10. I'm thinking its a driver issue but I do not know where to look.
Currently this version of windows 7 SP 1 I have only has a few updates. IE 11 has direct x stuff etc.

If I move a table row in Word 2007, it seems to split the table at the point it is inserted. The row above gets the table bottom formatting, the row I insert gets both table top and table bottom, and the next row gets table top. If I hover the mouse at the start of the inserted row it offers me the table start marker, as does hovering over the next row. This happens whether I drag and drop or cut and paste.

What&#8217;s going on, and how can I insert the row as part of the existing table, or at least re-merge the tables back to one again? I never had this problem with 2003.

Hey there folks...
I am in need of some assistance. Obviously!

I need a form which allows a user to select a record from one table and completely move the record to a totally separate table in the same database. I need it to transfer all the data for the selected record.

AutoNumber will not be an issue as each record has unique identifiers.

I found this article online but it seems it will append ALL data and doesn't allow a user to select the correct record. This uses an Append Query which makes sense but again it seems as though it will transfer ALL records. All I need is for it to transfer a specific record depending on the user's selection in the form.

A:MS Access 2007: Moving a record from one table to another table...

Is this to "Archive" the record?
It is not normally necessary to actually "Move" a record, as you can just have a tick box called archive or similar that can be used to exclude that record from normal display and to display it as an Archived record.
There are 2 ways to do what you want, if it is really necessary, one is using an Append query, you can Identify the currently selected record on the Form using
forms![Form Name]![name of Key Field]
in the First Criteria row of your Key field, where Form name is the actual name of your form and name of Key Field is the actual name of your Key Field.
The other version is to use a VBA recordset Clone to do the same thing.

At least two ways to do this but I wouldn't make it automatic. What if the wrong Part name was inadvertently selected? I would ad a button to the form "Take one from Inventory" and execute an update query that basically does Quantity= Quantity-1 . This query would need to link to PartNumber on the active form.

The other way would be to write the SQL to do the update in VBA and run the EXEC SQL command under the new button.

I dont want to have to delete the table and put in all the information again. Is there an easy way to do this? I looked at a similar post and it said to press the filter button on the data tab. This does nothing.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly aprreciated.

Can someone take a look at my two pages?

Notice index.html has light blue tables that are 90% width.

Pools.html is also 90% width but looks much smaller. It does't appear that it's covering 90% of the dark blue table.

I am trying to make them both the same but I can't quite figure it out.

Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

It seems OK with Mozilla Firefox (see the attachment).
But with Internet Explorer, you're right. The Microsoft HTML is not standard.

I am new to the IE Forum!

I would like help with IE 7 keyboard/mouse commands for choosing tables and table elements (i.e. <TD>). I know this is no problem in Firefox. If I want to choose a <TD> element in FF, all I have to do is point to the element I want and press the Ctrl + <left mouse> and the element is chosen. If I want to choose a whole table in FF, all I have to do is place my mouse beside the table and press the Ctrl + <left mouse> and the complete table is chosen.

My question is, can I do something similar with Internet Explorer? I hope so, I am running another application that works better in IE.

Thanks for any help on this matter!

I have two access tables I would like to merge data into one table. How to do?

I tried blank database importing one by one but result is I get two tables not one.

A:Importing data from one table into another table

You are going to have to write an insert query. If you view it in SQL mode it would look something like:

FROM MyTable2;

I'm trying to help out a friend long distance with a computer issue. I'm fairly certain that she has a bad hard disk. She can boot her computer and work on it but it is very slow and non responsive at times. Her HDD is a Seagate. I had her download their disk utility and it failed 3 out of 4 of the HDD tests. Windows XP refuses to run a check disk on it.

I'm assuming that this is an actual physical problem with the hard disk itself and not something that a repartition/reformat would take care of. She is going to replace the drive but I'm just curious for my own knowledge whether or not this could be something other than a physical hardware problem.

Any ideas?

A:Solved: Can a bad partition table cause this?

I've never had this happen to me but i would say you are correct in saying that HD is bad. I would try and replace it or if there is a spare try that one. Also and this is just a suggestion. I never had good luck in the past with seagate. Western Digital makes a real nice HD.

You may have seen programs like this in outlook and other places but my boss recently asked me to write him a program that had a table that the administration staff could mark their positions on. ie, In, Out, Office, Do not disturb. things like that. They also have to be able to log on and change thier location on separate accounts and everyone else has to be able to open it and view the table so they can find people. I honestly have no clue where to begin. any hints or pointers would be nice. (and do you think it would be better to just buy a program that does it instead?)

Aloha!! Using Access 2007 Im have a Form to capture caller information.

I need help creating a insert statement VB code to have Unique Case No inserted (write) into the tblComments table.
Currently the code is displayed =([UID] & [CaseNo]) MM100 on the form but does not write into the table.

Agent initials are recorded and a case auto number is assigned = example MM100
Simple fields look like this: UID=MM CaseNo = 100 (auto number)

NOT working:
The a Unique Case No is built by truncating =([UID] & [CaseNo]) ie.. MM100 NOT WRITING INTO TABLE.

Hi All,
I am running a query which adds up scores like a league table. I then open a from which is linked to the query showing me the league table. The form is set to continuous form.

The form shows my data sorted from top to bottom like this.
Client A...........34
Client F...........23
Client Z...........20

What I want to do now is to add an index to show the leagure position:
1.....Client A...........34
2.....Client F...........23
3.....Client Z...........20

How do I add these number 1, 2 and 3 to my continuous form?

This might be to simple so it might not be what your asking, but just add the field to your table, and then add it to your query and then to your form.

then delete first row of the temp table
then trying to append back

what i get is just the last record value(see attached pic actualresult.jpg)

What can be done is to use manual coding to read betwwen records but the db i have is HUGE and going back and forth to get next records is going to kill my app.

Hi All,

Does anyone know if there is a maximium amount of records that are allowed in an ACCESS table. I am currently working on a database which has 20,000 different sales orders in a single table.


A:Solved: Maximium table Size

Simon, as far as I can see from the Access Specifications in access help there is no limit. So it is limited by the overall database size of 2 Gygabytes and how slow you are prepared to allow the database queries etc to get.
