Hi Frank,

Do you know the reason why you had to perform a system recovery?

Since you are concerned with your Windows Experience Index score, I am going to assume you are running Windows Vista.

There are many reasons why your hard disk may not be performing up to par.

If the recovery was caused by hard disk problems, your drive may be experiencing errors and recovering them. In Control Panel, select Administrative Tools. From the new dialog box, select Computer Management and then from the next box, select Disk Management. Ensure that all of the disks on your system are Healthy.

Next, and from this same dialog box, right-click on your system disk (usually C:) and select Properties and the Tools tab. Click on the Check Now button and then select both of the disk options checkboxes.

If your drives are OK, then the system recovery may have moved files around, so I would suggest a disk clean-up from the General tab followed by a defragmentation from the Tools tab, in that order.

Hope some of the above helps with your performance issues. If so, please leave me feedback when you have a chance.

Thanks,

Lee

Hard drive failure in system less than 2 years old!!


Since you are comfortable with working inside your computer, the best thing to do now is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of hard drive, SATA or EIDE.

Alternately you can use a live linux cd, boot up with that, and transfer your data to an external drive.

Once your data is safe, try booting to the Windows cd and attempt a repair installation.

And finally, yes, hard drives can go bad in 2 years or less.

Comp doesnt boot after installing USB 2 drivers


Hi rogueonline,

Disconnect the external drive from the PC. (It's possible windows registry is messed up).
It sound like your windows system is a bit confused as well. First try resetting the bios. See page 9 in your manual. (Don't forget to set it back to normal). This should allow you to get back into the bios. Go over each setting & adjust as needed.
Make sure your primary hard disk drive is listed in the boot order. Advanced Setup Page 30, in manual. If your windows operating system seem is a bit off (OS not installed correctly or driver software not installed correctly). The over-all function of the system can & will run slow. If your primary drive seem to also run slow, the FAT or MBR can be slightly corrupt which will also slow the drive down including file transfer & eventually the drive will cease to function. (The drive can be repaired by doing a full format through windows).
Do a fresh install of windows, including the full format, (Not a Quick format) on the primary drive. Even though ECS does include the USB 2.0 driver so does windows update service. If your windows was all ready updated & you re-installed ECS's (2003) USB driver, that may have been enough to screw up windows. If you have data on your current drive & need to get that data off & if you have access to another system you can pull your drive & slave it into another system & remove the data. There is no quick fix. Play it safe. Start from scratch. After windows has been installed & you install the ECS driver software, update windows until there are no updates left. I'm sure your system will regain its speed.

T30 2366 not recovering from original recovery disk


The 2 gig partition is probably your recovery partition that allows you to restore your computer from the hard drive instead of the Operating System discs that came with the unit. You don't really want to mess with your partitions (you may accidently delete all your data). I'd recommend using Acronis True Image and backing your data to an external hard drive first, you can copy individual folders or the entire hard drive. Then you can just destructive restore your entire hard drive back to factory settings.

HDD data recovery


most hard drives have that erie only 2 partitians at a time this is with your computer how it can handle since you made three particians there is a chance that it only allows partitions of only 2

say for instance you have a celeron your comp would only allow what you memmory can give you this would knock out the 2 partician when created the 3rd partician
not enough memmory to fill all 3 partitians

safe end to this particians in long run can hurt your comp more than help it i suggest buying another hdd to make your back ups or get a portable pull out system hdd this ensures your files are as easy to get as putting in a new hard drive
hope this gave some insite
