Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive
System started to go slow, lock up and then not reboot. Have managed to get it started after several failed attempts, so I could back up all the data. It was giving me message 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key' before it gets into Windows XP. Now it either just sits at a blank screen before getting into Windows or goes impossibly slow in Windows and then I find it difficult to open/close any programs down. I am mainly using Cubase SE, which I have been using on this PC okay for a few years. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Use powerdata recovery software and get back all your data first. use demo version first.
or use imaging software like acronis true image and make a explorable image . browse the image and get data back first
then low level format the hard drive from free software from hdd dot com
you will get suscess. imaging can take upto 3 hours. and powerdata can take upto 2 hours. keep a drive ready to back up data.
use a backup without bad sectors. dont over write or restore data to the same drive you do recovery from.

It really looks like your hard drive is giving up on you. happend to me a few times so far (have a shitload of copmputers) and happends only with drives i get sent via UPS. when i order them via FedEx they last so long until i replace them due size limitations. Looks like UPS thoses them around harder. i thnk i read once that they drop the packages pretty much all the time from about 3 feet in general. create an image of your harddrive while you still can and just transfer it onto a new one and you will be all set.
