I may not be clear on exactly what it means for a computer not to POST. What I mean is that when it runs through the POST check, it sees the failed hard drive, but then it says there was an error reading it. When Windows boots up, I cannot see the partition that should be showing the failed hard drive, I only see my main C: drive.
When I tried to go into BIOS, it hung up my computer. After 10 minutes of waiting for it to go into BIOS, I finally just powered it down. If I let it go to POST, it boots up fine.
