Just to summarise to save reading the other thread. Basically the other thread the possibility of my system being infected by malware of any type has been ruled out and obviously by the title my HD is at fault.
I have emailed Fujitsu asking for an interpretation of the error hoping of course they come up with something like it's a loose connection. Unlikely but never say never. In the mean time I'm looking for a replacement internal HD and also on the market for an external HD for back up purposes.
I was alerted to the fact that I should be careful in choosing the capacity of the new drives as my laptop BIOS may not recognise large capacity drives. Thanks Oldf@rt.
My questions are:
1) anyone recognise the error code or able to point me in the right direction?
2) How do I ascertain what capacity HD my BIOS will recognise?
3) Does the recognision size of the BIOS apply to both external and internal drives?
