    What he is telling you, is to open your case. take a look at your hard drive. Is it a Western Digital, Maxtor, IBm, or what. Go their web sit and download the utility. Sony did not make it, They probably didn't manufacter one piece of that computer. They had others make it Stamped their name on it. So find out what hard drive you have.

    you can use the PC you are posting from. just download the utility from your HD manufacturer's website and make a bootable floppy with it. that will allow you to check your HD for problems.

    Thats what my previous post said...dident it?.. :roll:
    Just for Confussions sake That had nothing to do with you Spider.



    I understand that your on a diffrent comp right now. Just to clarify viaos website tells you that you need to Restore you computer with Their disk?

    Can you look through you currently collection of stuff that came with your compter and see if there is a Restore disk...

    spideropt: looks like there is some problem with Maxtor site. you will have to wait untill the site comes back up.
    what you will download is known as "Powermax". it will be an executable and it will help you make a "Bootable" floppy.

    Wilde,
    Saw you had a problem early this year that sounds almost identical to mine (getting a "Disk access:Sense operation failed" error during system recovery). I have a Seagate harddrive (yours was different I think). But was the process you followed to :
    1) download harddrive diagnostics from the manufactuers site
    2) put the diagnostics on a floppy disk
    3) boot up w/ the floppy

    Does this sound about right? And did you get the PC back up and running?
    Were there any tricks to creating a bootable floppy - or is it as simple as copying the diagnostics download to a floppy and booting with it?

    Thanks.

    disk access: sense operation failed

    I had this same error message with a Sony VAIO desktop machine. I was able to install XP with a regular OEM disk and I used a program to test the hard drive and it was fine. Then I used a free bootup floppy from http://www.killdisk.com/ to completely wipe the drive. After I did this, the Sony restore disks worked again. =)

    I had the same problem, Disc access: Sense operation failed. I decided to take dork's advice. I'm using the tool from http://www.killdisk.com right now, and I was wondering if it's supposed to take very long. The process is at 50%, and it has been over an hour since I started.
