Now the PC won’t boot at all. It can’t seem to find my hard drives at all.
Oddly,I can boot straight from the CD-drive into Linux, where at least I can get online. But not even Linux recognises the hard drives.
and I don’t think the hard drives are at fault – they’re both bought new, less than 3 months old. Oddly, I bought a new one because the old hard drive just failed on me for no apparent reason. But it can’t be the motherboard that’s the issue because that’s less than 3 months old too.
I’m just about ready to buy a bloody laptop! But I’d still have the huge problem of retrieving my old data 🙁
