Question about PC Desktops
Depending on the age of the computer or hard drive itself, the hard drive may still be under warranty. What I recommend is to call Maxtor and see if they can do a warranty replacement of the hard drive. It sounds as if this hard drive may have failed completely. It would be a good idea however to take the hard drive to a reputable computer repair shop in your town and see if they can recover any data you may need from the hard drive. They may charge a little bit to do it, but it may be the only way to save any data you may really need. If Maxtor sends you a new hard drive or if you buy a new one, you should be able to reinstall Windows or whatever operating system you have currently installed. If you made a recovery disk for your computer then you should be able to use it to install the operating system. If no disk, the computer repair shop may have a disk that can be used to install the operating system. They may want you to bring in the computer (as there is a sticker on it that has a product key for the operating system (if Microsoft, and if it is a factory built computer)). I hope that this information helps you. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
