Oneday my HD stoped functioning, it wouldn't load.. gosh i forgot what it the screen said but it wouldn't load in safe mode or anything, it just do stuff like move text around then load, and then a message came up everytime (but darn it i forgot what it said) so i went to a HD manufactuer (compusa) and they couldn't fix it, (they still charged like 300 even tho they didn't fix a darn thing, but they said the orginal manu. can do it fro $1000 ) a couple months later i tried loading the HD via duel boot but i had a prob w/ it, it froze up, and couldn't open it via "my computer" drive f.. I know the files are still there.. (i hope!) is there another possible way to recover the files/fix the harddrive? anyone have an idea?
