Preferred Solution: check disk power failure

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.)

A: check disk power failure

How to run chkdsk or System File Checker (SFC) from the Recovery ConsoleBoot your Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD
When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter
At the "Install Windows" screen, click on Repair your computer at lower left
At the System Recovery Options screen, make note of the drive letter assigned to your boot drive (normally C: ) and click Next
At the Chose a Recovery Tool window, click on Command Prompt. You will be sitting at X:\Sources directory
Run chkdsk or SFC
If you did not note the drive letter of your boot disk, you can enter bcdedit and look at the osdevice line to see what it is.
For chkdsk, type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter (use the letter from above if not C: ).
For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
Let either run to completion undisturbed.

My power went out for ten seconds yesterday, and when my desktop computer re-booted, I got a message saying drive D (hard drive) had to be checked for disk consistency. It passes the test and the desktop appears. Then the whole computer freezes. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? Once the desktop appears, the whole computer freezes so I can't access anything.....

A:Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

I suggest trying to boot into safe mode.

If successful, then initiate a chkdsk /r on the boot drive.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter.

Type Y in response to onscreen message and hit Enter.

Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r will run before the system boots to the desktop. After the chkdsk /r has completed, the system will boot into XP automatically.

HI Techies,

This is my first post here. I am doing my first MOBO build and am having some issues. Here are my specs:

PC Chips A13G+ Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 2.0GhZ
4 GB DDR2 RAM
200 GB SATA Hard drive
80 GB SATA Hard drive

Now when I first turned on the computer I got the following error. I have seen posts with this error before and I tried some of the things but they didn't work for me. The only thing I didn't try is replacing the Lithium battery, which I will do tomorrow. But in the mean time the error I got was the following:

PXE - E61: Media Test Failure, check cable
...
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

Now here is what I have tried so far:

- Reset CMOS (by placing the jumper in the CLR_CMOS mode for about 30 secs)
- Unplugged Video card, HDD cables
- Switched RAM around
- tried booting a Win XP cd
- taking out the lithium battery and placing it in again.

I would appreciate any help from you guys.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Media Test Failure, check cable, disk boot failure

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from your optical drive first.

Or you have a SATA hard drive and controller and are trying to boot from an unpartitioned drive on a controller that you haven't provided a driver for.

So, Ive noticed that my computer started freezing while playing a game on my computer and I couldnt figure out the reason.
I ran a System Diagnostic and apparently some Disk checks failed, ie. SMART predict failure check and Logical Disk Dirty Bit Check.

Could this be the reason the game is freezing, and is there any way to fix these problems?

Thanks!!
 

A:Disk Check failure

Boot from the DVD and open a command window. Type:

chkdsk C: /b

It will take a while to run. It will retest any bad clusters that may be there and remove them from the bad cluster file if they work properly.

If I were you, I would turn off the SMART in the BIOS before running chkdsk so that only chkdsk is determining the drive's health independent of any other information. Though it doesn't happen often, SMART can be in error, too.

If you still have bad clusters listed in the results of chkdsk, you need a new drive.

Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping to get some help. I had a power outage while my WD Elements 1.5 TB Hard drive was on. I wasn't accessing it but apparently that was enough.

I had a lot of important data on it but losing hope after unsuccessful attempts to use PhotoRec to get items off it.

It doesn't show as accessible in MyComputer but is detected. I've included what it shows under the "Manage" view of the drive.

I've also tried MiniTool Partition but it doesn't seem to be able to fix the partition. I've also tried Partition Bad Disk and it just shows the whole 1.5 TB drive as one bad block. It won't let me fix it either.

Does anyone have any other bits of advice? I'm at a loss as what to do. It seems the data is not recoverable. I can't figure out how to get it to show or even how to use it again.

Please see attachments.

I'm grateful for any ideas/help please. Thank you.

A:no bootable disk/media test failure, check cable

Your HP notebook is not booting from the Windows DVD because the boot list is wrong.

In the BIOS Setup Boot Order list, move Internal CD/DVD ROM drive to the top, and move the Notebook Hard Drive to second place in the list. Save & Exit. Your notebook should now boot from the Windows 7 DVD.

You should see "Press any key" when the DVD is initially detected, so press any key to continue booting from it.

Don't forget to enter the correct Product Key - - the one that should be printed on a label on the underside of the HP notebook.

All of the sudden my laptop has this black screen with the above message. It also tells me to backup the content immediately and run the Hard Disk test in System Diagnostics. First how can I back up anything since I cannot get past the black screen? Second when I run the Hard Disk test (quick or extensive), it tells me Smart check and Short DST not available.  I am not an expert in computers, but when I bought this back in early 2013 the first thing I did was make a recovery disk, it only did the Repair disc and no others. Since it was newer than the one I had before that made 5, I thought is all I needed, but when I insert it does not work.  This is running Windows 7, not really sure if is a 32 or 64 bit sorry. It is an i7 and has an SSD. I went all out on this computer when I bought since I detest Windows 8. Spent a little over $1100.00, so I would appreciate any help.      

A:"SMART hard disk check has detected an imminent failure"

Hi,  Thank you for posting your concern on the Support Forums and sorry about the issue you are having. F2 Test on HDD giving error message ? SMART Check not installed Short DST not installed means that the HDD is not getting detected by the computer you might want to go to BIOS by tapping F10 and check if you see HDD listed. If not then yes HDD is not getting detected at all by the unit. I?m not sure how comfortable you are tearing down the unit to reseat the parts. But if you are, you might want to reseat the HDD, if that works well and good, if not nothing much can be done as either the HDD or the cable connecting the HDD to the Motherboard has gone bad, or I?m sorry you mentioned its SSD so it brings us down to replacing the SSD itself. The recovery media is not going to work as the Hardware component on which the recovery media would install the operating system itself is not getting detected on the unit.  Please write us back in case you would need any further assistance we would be happy to help. Or if the unit is in warranty call HP Tech Support at 1-800-474-6836, they will guide you further. To check the warranty status here use this link-http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/weInput?cc=us&lc=en.Although I work for HP but I'm speaking for myself. Please click ?Accept as Solution? if you feel my post solved your issue, it will help others find the solution.

Hi

XP Pro
Compaq nx6110 Laptop

Recently had this smart disk corrupt disk thing and proceeded to take steps to get rid of it:

Firstly ran the iexplorer.exe
As all my links were dud I had to log into my Admin account, update Malware bytes and run the process from there - did not have to go into safe mode with networking
This removed 3 files I think it was and from that I had to run the unhide process
Now the only thing I haven't done is restore my start menu items

Finally, apart from restoring my start menu, is there anything else I can do to check I am still not infected?

Thanks

What a mess...

I came to my PC this morning only to find it restarting after the BIOS continuously. I peeked in the case and the DRAM LED was lit on my ASUS mb. I pulled one of the memory sticks out, restarted, and it booted right into windows (I'm running win 7 x64 ultimate). I wanted to run memtest86 to check the rest of my memory, so I booted that from a flash drive, test was OK. When I booted from the flash drive, it changed my boot order and disabled my RAID1 for some reason, so it booted to one of the RAID drives (except now it wasn't in raid, it was just an IDE drive). When it got into Windows it did all the 'installing new hardware' stuff on my hard drives. But it was running fine. I knew what happened, so I shut down, went into the BIOS and put the RAID back on, and booted back into Windows. It booted fine, except that there was a red X on my internet connection icon in the tray (even though I could get to web sites just fine). Network control center said the "dependency service or group failed to start". A few seconds later, a msg pops up saying the firewall is off and should be turned on. It ran stable at this point, had it on for about an hour.

Then to fix the red X thing, I read that maybe I should try a check disk. So i went to do it in windows on my C drive and it said I couldn't do it while the drive is active or whatever, so it would schedule it for the next startup. Sure enough it ran, found some problems, and finished. Now when it gets into wi... Read more

Yesterday, I did a complete (Windows XP SP3)system backup, which I have reason to believe completed (file of appropriate size present on external drive) - but there was a power failure, during which the contents of an important drive disappeared.

When I rebooted, the system started running chkdsk and reported thousands of bad sectors.

I attempted to reformat the drive and left it overnight, but it froze at about 75% (bars). This morning in other attempts Windows is telling me that "Drive G: cannot be reformatted" . . . I read all posts on reformatting drives, downloaded Testdisk, which produced nothing useable (as I write this Testdisk is cycling through a seemingly endless cylinder check) . . .

My question(s) is:

- how do I reformat the disk? Windows can't . . . .

- a secondary question is scarier - I see drive G: in My Computer (and I used that to try and reformat it before doing a backup restore), but I am having trouble matching Drive G: to actual hardware (i.e. I have 3 physical drives on the system but 4 logical disks - so one disk has 2 partitions . . . ) Is there an easy way to do match logical to physical partitions? (yeah, I know that's Windows 101 . . .)

Thanks

The PXE-61 Media failure frequently that the hard drive has died or has otherwise become unreadable.

This can also be caused by a failure of the Disk Controller or even a bad data cable.

Hello:

Looking for some advice/help!

About 1 week ago I started getting a Driver Power State Failure BSOD after wake-up on my PC. At that time several issues started:

BSOD on wake-up from hibernation
Almost constant near 100% disk usage
Random spikes of 100% memory usage
Poor performance
Really slow boot times (went from~ 60 seconds to several minutes just to get to the initial motherboard screen image)

Solutions tried:
Windows restore
Norton and Malwarebytes screens
I've tried isolating and removing problem programs from startup and from running in the background without success.
Changed Page file size (recommended on different post)

The performance is painfully slow, the boot time takes forever, and I am getting constant performance alerts from noroton because the disk and ram usage are always near 100%.

The PC is ~ 3 years old and used mostly for work. No new programs have been installed, no new hardware added.

Any suggestions?

   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

I have a Latitude E6420, got error code 2000-0142 and blue screen. I replaced the hard drive with a new one. I put the new drive in and reboot. I am still getting "PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable".
In BIOS setup, i had my HDD as the first to boot already. I ran a Diagnostic test and got:
Error Code 2000-0142 Validation 119106
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - S/N 6WS1712X, Long Self test unsuccessful.
What can I do next? I have a new hard drive put in and still getting this?
Please HELP!!
Many Thanks in Advance

A:Replaced Hard disk, still getting "PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable"

You must install WIndows onto the new drive -- it is blank when it arrives from the factory.

Hi there

Recently, I upgraded my laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, but randomly, I get lots of BSODs, either Kernel Security Check Failure or Video TDR Failure igdkmd64.sys . However, these do not happen at the exact same time, ie when I log in, or boot up a certain programme (I think). They just occur out of the blue (no pun intended ).

Any help/advice/fixes would be super helpful, as I am completely lost

Attached is my bundle of files that were requested in this thread here; BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums

PC Specs
CPU: Intel Core i7 4700MQ
GPU: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 + NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M
RAM: 16GB DDR3 Dual Channel memory @2394.3 MHz

A:BSOD - Kernel Security Check Failure + Video TDR Failure igdkmd64.sys

Are you using 361.43 version of nVidia driver ? If that is correct, rollback to 359.06 version and report back.

Hi Chaps,

Have been looking at a pc for a pal of mine (Packard Bell Pentium 400mhz with 20gb hard drive running Win98SE), that receives the "Disk Boot failure insert system disk and hit enter" message. I checked all the connections and pulled them out and put them back in, but still the same. I checked in the bios and there is nothing recorded, all zeroes. I have tried everything to detect the drive, but no diagnostic disks, Win98se startup disk, or any commands like fdisk /mbr, sys c, scandisk /all etc.. can find anything. I would hazard a guess and say it's done for, but wondered if there was anything else I could do to wake it up. What gives me small doubt that the disk is dead, is that I got hold of a very old Dell 133mhz pc with a 1gb working drive and installed that in the Packard Bell, but got the same disk boot failure message. I tried the dodgy (Fujitsu) 20gb drive in the Dell and got error message "disk controller 1 failure hit F1 to continue, F2 to enter setup". I went into setup and the instructions indicated that IDE drives should be set for "auto" detect. I set all four of them to auto at one point, but still got same message. Just as a last thing, I swapped the cables from the bad machine (Packard Bell) to the good one (Dell) and it booted up okay, with it's original 1gb drive, of course. Thanks for any suggestions.
 

A:Disk boot failure and disk controller failure

can you hold the drive in your hand while the system is on
if so does it feel like its spinning
if not it is dead
try giving it a sharp twist from right to left and or light taps on the side
I'd say it cooked and if there nothing real important invest in a new drive and windows 2000 pro OS
should run on that machine

Hello All Computer hardware wizards,
My Dell Notebook a Vostro 1500, 1.6Ghz 4G Ram, 250GB Hardrive and OS: Vista Home Edition, suddenly acted up yesterday.
1) At first my screen displayed random horizontal color lines (sort of blinking randomly). When that did not change after a few minutes, I 'hard' powered off the Laptop.
2) When I pushed power on, it dispalyed the LED's for Num Lock, Cap Lock and Scroll Lock. The Cap Lock LED was blinking and the Num Lock, Scroll LocK LED's remained continously on. SCREEN was completely black.....no display!
3) After about 30 seconds all 3 LED's shut off and computer went dead.

I repeated this several times. Took battery off, tried unplugging from 110V power etc. Still does the same as described in paragraph 3.

PLEASE HELP! PLEASE HELP!
 

A:Screen Failure & Startup power failure. After 30 seconds laptop powers off

That doesn't sound too healthy!

How old is the laptop? If it is under warranty I would get it checked that way.

My initial thought, although not a certainty, would be a problem with the graphics card itself from your description.

Hi,

I've been browsing the site and the internet for a sollution to my problem, but can't seem te find it. There are similar postings, but they're always just a little different. So that's why i posted the new thread.

Since a couple of days i've been experiencing troubles shutting down my PC and using my USB ports. It started when i tried to log onto my work from home. It failed and the IT guy from work told me to reinstall citrix reciever. So I did and I was able to work from home. After finishing and logging out (to get back to my own PC) I found that my USB portst didn't work anymore. I tried rebooting, but af 10 minutes of "shutting down" I got a blue screen: Driver Power State Failure with code 1000009f.

I did the following:
- tried system restore - it failed with different time stamps
- update drivers - they were all up to date the system said
- Malware Bytes, CC Cleaner, MS Essentials, Hitman pro - Did them all, had some minor stuff, fixed that, problem remained.
- SFC/scannow - no problems
- Memory check - no problems

As it is now, the only update I have left is the update to WIN10. However it has tried and failed during a few of the reboots, so that doesn't seem to be and option.

After try all different kinds of things from a lot of posts I decided to refresh my windows install. Did a lot of updating and still the problem remains. Although I now found out that USB devices that are plugged in upon startup work. Once I unplug en replug them, t... Read more

Hey, I got some BSOD problems. Do you got time & experience to help me?

I got Windows 8 at the moment, I will install 8.1 shortly. Had 8.1 before i re-installed OS when the first BSOD showed up, so I doubt that 8.1 will fix things completely.

My problems ATM!

- Driver Power State Failure
- Video TDR Failiure (nvlddmkm.sys)
- Screen freezes at start up or when I get to the desktop
- Have to Disable my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M to use the CPU (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Got two other kinds of BSOD before I re-installed windows but don't remember what they said, I just felt like "Hey I need to re-install my OS anyways so w/e". But apparently that didn't solve the problems.

I also gained "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.52 stopped working While playing CS:GO" but that was before I re-installed windows. And now to use my CPU I need to go into Device Manager and shutdown my NVIDIA card to be able to use the CPU and use the Intel card instead. If I don't shut it down my CPU will freeze the screen for days, til I restart or I get a BSOD.

I will buy a can of air and open up my laptop and blow some dust away, perhaps that could help? Perhaps the NVIDIA card is burned/broken and I have to buy a new PC?

I've tried a few different driver for my NVIDIA card also, nothing works.

I'm no computer expert and thats why I'm here begging for help, so if someone could help me out here I would appreci... Read more

The following day I went to best buy and picked up a Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU and installed it. After plugging in the main power cord from the wall outlet I switched on the PSU itself. Inside, the SB PWR light on the MB lit up. I thought this was good news. I hit the power button for the whole system and

Hello All:

I have a HP DV6275US, Pavillion DV6000 with Vista Home Premium on it and I am trying to go to XP. Dual booting is too much of a ruckus and I do not like it anyways, so I bought a Scorpio to install it on.

When I installed the Scorpio, it initially would not detect the drive, so I disabled SATA Auto. in the BIOS, and it then recognized it.

So, I start to install XP, formatted fine, copied sys. files fine, but when I got to the actual GUI install it asked me if I wanted to install a driver for my battery, which could possibly disrupt installation, so I choose yes and anyways and it proceeded fine for about a minute, then power failure. Tried again, and again, and same thing.

I put my Vista HDD back in, a Seagate 160GB, and things worked fine.

I have read something about having to manually load the drivers for the nVidia RAID chipset, as the ones XP Install loads do not suffice. I could not find any problems about the battery, so please, ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Recently, after unplugging my system from its power source (removing power cable from the power supply) and then later reconnecting the power source, the machine will not boot unless a Vista system disc is in the drive upon boot, mind you, not booting from the disc, just having it in the tray and booting to the OS harddrive. If the disc is not present at startup the machine displays the following error message:

DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER TO CONTINUE.

If I insert the disc after this is displayed, the machine hangs and does nothing. If I restart my system after inserting the disc, the machine boots as normal.

Attempted fixes:

bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd, /fixboot

Operations complete successfully but they do not fix the problem. These actions were attempted primarily as a shot in the dark. Typically I have encountered this issue when the molex connector or other cabling is loose on the OS HDD, but that is obviously not the issue, since I am posting this from the machine.

OS is currently installed on an IDE drive, set as master on the primary IDE channel.

Any suggestions would be appreciated to save my the extra step in order to boot.

Repair MBR:

Boot From the Windows Install Disc
The first thing you?ll need to do is boot off the install disc, and then click through until you see the ?Repair your computer? link in the lower left-hand corner.
You?ll need to choose the correct installation of Windows and then click the Next button.
And then you?ll get to the System Recovery Options screen, where you can get to the Command Prompt.

Repairing the Master Boot Record:

If you want to restore the master boot record, you can simply type in the following command:

bootrec /fixmbr

You can also write a new boot sector onto the system partition with this command (which is often more useful):

bootrec /fixboot

And of course, if you just use bootrec /? you?ll be able to see all the options.

Hi, I've recently tried to install a new HDD (WD Black 1 TB) and a new vid card ATI Radeon HD 3850. When I try to boot and install XP I'm getting the msg Disk Boot Failure, insert system disk and press enter.

Before I was getting "PXE-E53: No Boot Filename Received." However I went into BIOS and disabled the OnChip LAN Controller and I'm now getting "Disk Boot failure, insert system disk and press enter."

When I check in BIOS it seems the HD and my CD Rom are both being detected (They both come up). My initial feeling is that my CDRom is failing, but could it also be that I've gotten a dead HD? If anyone can help me with the Disk Boot Failure problem I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Hiya

Well, as some of you may jnow, this pc has caused me a lot of trouble. So, now its installed witha brand new Motherboard, RAM, AGP card, and hardDrive.

Installed Windows 2000 using the upgrade disk, popping in Win98 to confirm I had it. It all worked okay, but on a restart the error comes up:

Boot from CD: Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter

Now, in the BIOS, I've had the boot sequence as all sorts. First, was

CDROM, HDD-0, Floppy

No joy, so went to

HDD-0, CDRom, floppy

then

Floppy, HDD-0, CDROM

Then, for the sheer heck of it

HDD-0, HDD-1, Floppy

Still nothing.

I tried it with Quick Boot disabled, nothing. Seek Floppy is Enabled, was disabled by defalut. HDD S.M.A.R.T is enabled, was disabled by default.

As the pc at home is the only one there, I can only answer via the work's pc during the day. I have my motherboard booklet, and the BIOS is Phoenix AwardBIOS

Hello everyone,

We have tried many things to get our computer running, and no luck. We have an older Pentium II 400 MHz computer, and we installed a brand new 500 GB IDE hard drive ( which is recognized at start-up ) and we have Windows XP to install. The computer will not install Windows, and the boot disk the hard drive manufacturer provided will not boot the computer.

We have been working on it for three nights and nothing!

We set the boot in BIOS to boot from CD, and it will not boot with Windows XP, or the hard drive CD that came from Western Digital. We even reset the bios, and took out the battery for over 5 minutes and no luck ( except that it helped the computer to finally recognize the new hard drive - we only have one which is set as the Primary Master. We checked all the cables, and disconected the main cables from behind the hard drive, and the two CD roms and nothing!

Can anyone please help us?
