Fixed Disk Parameter Table or BIOS Error - System Halted

Typically, this error will come with a BIOS post beep, and typically will stop the booting process in its tracks. This occurs generally before any operating system boot is initiated. Some good quick fix ideas might be:

1. Check with your computer manufacturer's support forums for common issues - Sometimes, this is merely a BIOS error. In cases where this is the issue, there will likely be a BIOS fix, or a flashing utility which can be downloaded and run. Ensure that when flashing your BIOS, you DO NOT power off. This may result in a complete loss of your motherboard's BIOS.

2. CMOS Battery - All motherboards require a CMOS battery in order to store information in the BIOS. When the battery burns out, it may show this error. Replacing the battery in regular PCs is very easy, whereas attempting to do so in the case of a laptop computer is NEVER recommended. Only professionals should typically open a laptop.

There are some cases, meanwhile, where this error can occur when your hard disk drive has reached failure point, and is mechanically flawed. If this is the issue, never attempt to open your hard drive on your own. Doing so will destroy it and all of its data, nine times out of ten. Instead, consult with a professional like the data recovery technicians at Hard Drive Recovery Group. We are here to help, and the call is always free.
