View fies in my hardisk when windows does not load

I have a "Non- system disk or disk error" due to which I'm forced to format my harddisk before reinstalling windows using the restore CD.
But i want to check to see if it has an files which need.
Any suggestions on how can do this without windows and starting from the 'C:\>". I tried using 'dir' command which did not show folders inside my 'c:'.
I have accesss to a bootable CD drive attached to this laptop.

Well it sounds like you are booting with the cd however it's your harddrive that's having a issue.
Go into the bios and check to see if your computer see's a hard drive.
If you can't do that put the laptop against your ear and listen to see if you hear the harddrive spin up.
Either way you do not have access to c:\
The harddrive either died or someone might have dropped it or jarred it and somehow it came unplugged depending on the laptop or notebook you have.

Try connecting it to another computer and if it also slows down, something is probably wrong with your external hard drive and you should get a new one.

Hello.

I suspect that your hard drive is faulty. If you formatted your drive, due to getting errors, this could be your problem in the first place.

I´d suggest running the hardware diagnostics (usually F2 or F12 upon boot) to see if that info is confirmed).

Hope this helps.

Did not see second sata harddisk


To know if your Hardisk is detected follow this steps:

In Windows XP

1. Open Control Panel
2. Go to Administrative Tools
3. Open Computer Management
4. Double Click Storage
5. Open Disk Management

All the list of Hardisk is here, your hardisk is not formatted that's why, so you have to proceed to format just right click that unformatted hardisk and choose format, specify the label for your hardisk or simply leave it blank.

Greetings,
There is no problem with your computer as a whole it is your hardisk that has a problem, It cannot continue installing the system files because an error occur in your hardisk. Format your hardisk with other computer.
If you have an extra hardisk much better.
