Weird hard drive crash

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I store all my music, pictures and misc file on my 2nd hdd (was a Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9). last night i get on my computer open my windows media player, it plays a few songs then freezes. I try to close it out of task manager does not do anything, had to hard reset only to find out that i cant boot into windows. Says that the bootmanager is missing, i look in my bios to find that the maxtor is not even named right anymore. i go into its settings to find this.



Drive did not work for over four hours.

just thought i would show you guys the weird size on the disk.

That shows that your drive is failing in the worst of ways :*( at the core. It is delivering false reads and your system is merely reporting what it is sending out. If there's anything important on it i recommend trying to get it off asap if you can.
