Hard Drive Not Recognised
Posted on 2011-03-04
I have a Toshiba Satellite P300-160 notebook running Vista HP. When turned on I can access the BIOS and the hard drive shows up and is set as bootable. However, exiting the BIOS nothing whatsoever appears on the screen after that. I can't even use PC-Check as the same blank screen appears.
I can run PC-Check with the hard drive removed and have tested everything else with it and no problems are reported.
I have removed the drive and can access it in another machine without problem. I have run HD Tune, Easy Recovery and Chkdsk, all without anything turning up.
Installing a new hard drive into the Toshiba everything boots as it should. I'm guessing that I will have to replace the drive but is there anything I have missed here that I could try?
