Re: cant windows installation

Files are lost then reinstall if it dont copy the files during installation that means your RAM is having problem loading the files. replace the RAM and then check it.

best of luck

HDD Problem

The info is not clear as to if it is a desktop or laptop . However what u could try is reseating the hdd and also get into BIOS by tapping F2 and u would find a option to restore defaults, after restoring check if the hdd is getting detected . Also make sure that external peripheral like Ext hdd and other usb devices are disconnected. Update once u have tried this.

the comp detecting the HDD is irrevelant, the fact it detects it means only it has detected the electronic part of the drive, if the actual mechanical part of the drive, and the platter are failing, then it will not work, i suggest taking it to someone who can test it.. you will know then
