I am running windows XP machine has been working great. Kid loaded I tunes software last week and when I reboot I get the blue check disk screen and it takes a little over 7 hours to run thru the check.

Today Itunes rebooted the machine without any prompt , just stated it was restarting for updates to take effect. When the machine restarted it began running the disk checking sequence. It was at 0% and we lost power .

Now when I start the machine it does not recognize that a hard drive is present. When I enter Bios and there is no HD listed , when I run auto scan for hard drive from bios it says no hard drive present.


I have pulled the hard drive set the jumper for slave and put it in another computer , it does not see the hard drive either. I have aprox 3 years of Cad drawings and everything related to my machine shop business on this one hard drive and am shut down until i can recover . Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated.

sounds like your HDD died. confirm this by downloading the ISO for you HDD Manufacturer and making a Boot disc and running the diagnostic tests for it.
