Hard Drive not found when starting PC
Posted on 2009-04-15
I have a fairly new Levovo (7 months old), the hard drive however is from 2003, I thought I was getting a deal little did I know this drive was sitting on a shelf for 5 years. Anyway, all was great then one day it hags and when I try restarting it, it goes as far as the WINDOWS screen with the status bar on the bottom and never gets any further that. I took the drive out and put it into another machine and when it (the drives are SATA) is in the 3rd SATA slot on the MB the PC doesn't start it just goes to a blank screen. I unplug the suspect drive and the system starts fine. Do I have to trash the drive all together or is there a way to get the data back and put it back onto a new drive?
