My Hd Died :(

Recommended Posts

Heya all

Just hoping that i can get some help here. Basically i turned on my pc the other day and i got a message saying that there was an error reading the drive, I was also given the option to reboot the pc(which didnt help). Im wondering what i should do? Should i just buy a new hd install windows and try and recover my files? any help would be great!!!

Thanks

Have you tried putting it in a different rig as a second drive and then see if you can save anything. Or try using the "Recovery Console" on the XP cd, assuming that you are running XP and run FIXMBR & FIXBOOT.

if you have a windows 95 bootdisk you could try reformatting the MBR... that might be the issue...

 

also check ALL connections
