First of all here is the explanation of what has happened to drive c:

unfotunately the damaged area in your hard drive is in c most probably drive c is unusable any more .
the reason that u see 2 windows xp professional at start up is that there was an incomplete windows instalation in drive c.
i think drive d is safe but since the hard disk is still under warranty i strongly advice you to give it back and get a new one.

    by the way having a backup power supply ( ups) and i recommend a power stabilizer too is healthy for your system because a lot of system curruption occures from unstable electrical currents.

Not able to recover windows on toshiba l300


You need to get disk for Vista from anyone and then use your windows product key mentioned on the sticker on back of your Toshiba Laptop to install Vista again on your computer. But as you had already formatted it so all data is lost now.

PS3 Does not register external hard drive


The E.H.D. might not be formated correctly. The Playstation 3 will not read any disc or hard disc if it is formatted under NTSC. It must be formatted under FAT or FAT32 ( can't remember exactly). You would need to format the E.H.D. with windows and check to see if you can format it for FAT32 if not then you need a formatting software (Max Drive or some other). Mine works great.
Good luck

Hard Drive Problem


This has happened to me once. I unplugged it overnight and plugged is back in and everything (Except for the for the DVD that was being written when it malfunctioned) Worked fine. I suspect that a Capacitor is going bad but it’s still working (for 4 months) and I will put off any real trouble shooting until it fails hard.
