    It's perfectly possible for a new drive to fail. As it says "Harddisk2", it means the 3rd HDD (starting from 0). It could also mean 3rd partition, not sure about that. Do you have more than one hard disk?

    I have to 3 HD all together 2internal 1 external how could i find the numbers so i would know wich is failing :)

    EDIT: could it be my external one then ?
  3. I'm not completely sure, but it would make sense that Windows would treat the external drive as the last one. Probably SATA/IDE drives first, then external ones.

    Ok D.C my external one, going to See how things go cheers bud!
  5. I think Windows Disk Management may show you which one of your drives is actually HardDisk2.
