Toshiba L750, core i5 - win-7 64bit installed. 4gb ram, 600gb HDD,
50gb os, 250gb, 250gb partitions. 8gb Virtual memory on 3rd partition.
Used sparingly and working fine until a few days ago. I heard some faint whirling sound (probably the HDD) and in some time the OS crashed.
It went into an infinite loop of shutting down and rebooting trying to recover the system.
At some time, I chose command prompt and ran chkdsk on all the partitions chkdsk /f /r
It seemed to work, although the computer was only half as fast.
After a couple of boots, I only get a blank screen and a cursor at left hand top, post the bios screen.
Has my harddisk crashed? If so, how do I get it working back, either with the same HDD or another one
The data is not really important to me ( I have a back up on my desktop)
Thanks in advance for your help
