  1. I have big problems, please someone help me.
    With no reason one day my computer didn’t wanted to boot up OS. When he came to part where he have to show Windows XP welcome screen, on start up, he just goes black, and can do nothing with him.
    Hard disk is RAID 160 GB.
    I’d try to format partition C, but he need more then 2 hours just to recognize start up disk (floppy), and still don’t see drive C, just saying “drive not found”. I’d try with other disk like primary and my RAID like a secondary master and then computer seeing that RAID existing, but not give to read it.
    Please, is anyone have problem like that, or know what can be solution? Do you thing that hard disk is dead? Is there some tools whick I can you to check it … Any suggestion will be helpful.

    All hard disk manufacturers supply diagnostic tools. Go and download the one for your HD.

    How can your say that your hard disk is RAID? RAID by definition means several disks acting as one.
