Hard Disk hangs

Hi there. Need help. My hard disk hangs everytime it boots up, and it shows a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the upper right corner of the screen. I tried to slave it to a functioning hard disk and it causes this hard disk to also hang, it is not detected initially by the functioning hard disk but when I run "scan for hardware changes" in device manager, the failed hard disk sometimes shows up, but causes already the functioning hard disk to hang. Any advice?

Sounds like your Boot Priority is set to USB first. Go into BIOS and change the Boot Priority to CD/DVD, Hard Disks, then USB and you should be good. It is doing this because it is trying to boot from the USB drive instead of your hard drive. You unplug the external disk and so that takes USB out of the loop, then allowing it to move to the next option which is probably Hard Disks. So get into BIOS, Change Boot Priority, Reboot. You should be good from there!

Good luck!
