I have a laptop that the harddrive disappeared the other day, I got up for something and came back to the blue screen saying something about unable to write to drive C:. Thought that was a little weird but knew I needed to redo the harddrive since it had been acting a bit funny as of lately. Well I tried to restart and got "op sys not found" So I grabbed a win98 start disk (floppy) so I could do "fdisk" to split the 20 gigs up and got "no fixed disk" Also says no valid FAT or FAT32 partition causes; create partition or virus causing C: to not register.
Any help getting a heartbeat back in this drive would be appreciated. THANX in advance for your help, TJ
i personally go with WD data lifeguard (which creates a boot disk if you have another computer available), boot it up and see if it detects the hard drive, if it get's detected it should work.
That's only me though,
I used a WD data tools disk and it came back with not a WD harddrive which it is not. Everything I try says could not find hard drive. Everything just fine with other harddrive so it's within this drive.
ok, i don't have any non-WD products, i actually thought that the program supports nonWD products, sorry about that, the only other option i could think of is try your hard disk's manufacturer's version of whatever tools like data lifeguard they may have. or maybe you could try seeing if warranty will repair/find the problem to it (if that is an option)
Yes have gotten fujistu's version of tools to get the same results. Everything I try says no harddrive. says to create partition or run virus scan. How do I run a virus scan in dos and where do I get a dos virus scan?
