Question about Maxtor 7Y250M0 250GB Serial ATA 7200rpm 8MB Hard Drive, OEM (DSMXSATA250G8M)
HD not readable at boot..first sector bad?..
media is write protected..how to undo? Dell error code 1344
Sounds to me its a bad hard drive. Set it as slave and install it into
another PC with enough empty hard drive space to copy all needed files. Try to observe also your hard drive if there's any clunking sounds and if it does any, eventually that drive of yours is just waiting the right time to give in.
Back up your files as soon as possible.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
