First off..hi all I'm new to Techspot and got a problem:-( One day we had a power outage and when i turned my pc on again,one of my hd's was just dead. Used all the standard methods of trying to get it back,but with no luck:-( Oh well..to the real problem: Now that it is removed it haunts my memory somehow. Leftovers from my installed programs bugs me when i try to install to my new hd. Or to say it in another way..the pc acts like the old hd is still there even though it's gone from bios and device manager. Also..the traces (shortcuts) are still active in the startmenu and can't be deleted. Any solutions anyone?
