Hey Thanks for reading my post,

 

My PC crashed yesterday and said i needed to re install an operating system, so today i sat down and tried to re install windows 7 with the disk but i came across the problem of it saying that it couldn't find any drivers to load. I've tried a number of solutions and tried one were i looked at my drives in the command prompts, i found my driver but it says there is no memory on it and under status it says "No Media".

 

Was wondering if anyone could help me.

 

Thanks

It sounds like your hard drive is toast.

Do you have the means to plug it into another computer to check it?

Do you have any personal data (documents, pictures, music, etc) on the hard drive that you want to save before formatting it and installing a new system?


All is well in Paradise.

If it's still on guarantee, it may be wiser to RMA it instead of removing the hard drive for testing, just in case they try to invalidate your guarantee because the computer has been opened.
