Question about Samsung SpinPoint M80 HM160JC Hard Drive
I had this harddrive in my laptop for 16 months. yesterday it wouldn't boot, so I tried the following:
- run Samsung diagnostic tool --> no error
- run a win xp repair: the setup goes fine, and seems to copy files to the drive, but on reboot, it's stucked after bios screen.
- put another drive: works flawlessly.
Can the drive be broken, despite the diag saying otherwise? Any other idea?
Thanks for your help.
