    I have the hdd jumper set to primary master, and once in a while it will bring windows up, but the video is not set and the usb mouse is off, but it is very rare for it to actually start windows so is there other ways for me to access this drive to try to recover some data. not sure if it is a data issue or the hdd is bad or plugged in inproperly.
