As the name suggest I am having boot problems. Happend this morning as the computer had a black screen ( No not monitor).
I rebooted and what do you know the HDD isnt recognized, happens from time to time usually a good cleaning and reconecting wires fixes it. It did but on boot up it was acting slugish more like it started normal but would slow to a hault unable to do anything with it freezing. After rebooting it did the whole not recognizing HDD again so reconected it started up again same thing slugish and froze.
I used different conectors power and sata both and it did the same thing. I also used another HDD that has an old win xp os on it that has no problems even on the same sata connection as the win 7 HDD.
(I can access the data from the other HDD fine and transfer it and did with no time difference from not till when I got it)
Now it doesnt boot at all gives me the whole boot from cd or what ever.
UNfortionatly I cant reinstall win 7 unless I have an old cd/dvd drive that uses the master giant ribben slot conector, sata doesnt work for some reason when doing clean slate never has from what Ive read its my old mobo that prevents it. Just for win 7 win xp can be installed.
Anyway what is wrong with my HDD Ive read it might be it failing but it sounds fine on start up and I can still transfer data without a problem.
So is it boot file problems. Malware preventing boot up if so how do I remove it when I cant turn it on.
Thanks in advance
