hard disk crash
Posted on 1999-01-06
For the seccond time in the history that I have had this computer, the hard drive crashed. And in addition, I was in the middle of instaling a seccond hd. The bios recognizes the 2nd disk, but the OS doesn't. On it, there were several megabytes of irreplaceable data including home-made programs
and other important programs. The boot sector was completely destroyed (erased) and the first half of the disk was erased. I could not boot at all untill I did a sys from an old boot disk... Is it possable to recover this data? and how??----
New Problem, Now absolutely NOTHING is responding to ANY stimuli. All that happens is the lights come on and the fans turn on. I have quadruple checked ALL cables and the power supply. I think it is time for a new system... what do you think??
