Problem with Windows98 and HD?
Posted on 2000-04-12
The past few days I had a huge problem: Every now and then (interval fo 5min or so) my computer stops working under W98. The HD led is on, and sometimes I get the error message "Unable to write to C. Data or files may be lost". I have to restart (by pressing the reset button) the computer, but even then sometimes it does not find my secondary h/d which is a Creative 52x CDROM. I have to switch it off and on again. THe CDROM and HD are on the same cable as primary & secondary.
I have scandisked my hd thoroughly and nothing comes up. I reinstalled the Windows (format + reinstall) but still the same thing happens. I am strarting to wonder whether it is my hardware, but what? motherboard or hd?
Any help with this?
I give anything
