Question about Freecom Computers & Internet
Your Operating System may have crashed,or damage on the hard drive.
Try disconnecting your machine completely from power.
Disconnect the hard disk and then connect it after a few minutes.
Power on your machine.
Remove the hard disk and enslave[connect it as a secondary drive i.e remove the ROM drive and connect it] on another machine with a good operating system.Start this machine, and the 'damaged' drive will be repaired before loading the operating system.After 'repair' completes,remove the drive and fix it on your machine.
Still not solved?
You may have no other option but to format[install operating system again] your drive.If it a partition,well and good,most of your files will be recovered if not some may be lost.
Hope it helps!
