Question about Seagate 750GB ST3750640AS SATA300 16MB 7200RPM (Bare drive) Hard Drive
I installed a Seagate ST370640 750G HD last Oct. It's 30G short of full. Fragmented even. Worse, not backed up. Yesterday it locked while I was time shifting a TV programme, rebooted, Win XP came up normal, but froze after a while. Repeated this a few times, each time getting less further into the boot. eventually it only just got to a movable pointer on a black screen. I noticed HD activity. My Seagate was tapping out the beat, tick, tick, tick blank, repeatedly. So I disconnected it. My PC rebooted normally. Reconnected it, the problem returned. The HD is still under warranty, and if I ask my supplier to see if he can extract the data, it will void the warranty with no guarranty of success. Is my HD stuffed, am I snookered, any ideas.
Lots of ideas!
Can you boot in safe mode?
