I talked to an expert online from hp, and the guy mentioned i need to do a system recovery again but i needed to use the recovery cds not the partition (i needed to order the cds because there was no cd for system recovery it is supposed to be done from the partition on the hard drive)... i waited for a few days... then i decieded to give it another try... I turn the computer on got the recovery consule back up.. i was going thru the system recovery process once agian and then without having that finalized bang!!! another blue screen the message above.. i need to mention. I was doing a low level recovery... i was formatting the whole thing to put everything back on... so in the middle of this process after there no OS i got the blue screen for the second time.. I decided on troubleshoooting the issue, i took some memory modules because i though memory has to do something with it memory turns out to be working fine... then after trying to get the recovery consule back up agian.. i was not even able to do that... turns out i had no hard drive anymore..BIOS was not showing a hard drive.. to make the story short.. i try to reseat the connections on the hard drive.. i tried another drive to see if it was the connextion or the motherboard but other hd was recognized with no problem and i even took it to a repair shop for them to test the [bleep] hd.. they told me it was death.. then I came back after gettitng an enclusure unit (i need to get one for my self to use an internal dvd burner and make it external so i deceded to try the hard drive thru a usb port connected to my own laptop toshiba computer.. turned out the [bleep] computer did saw the hard drive.. but it was acting weird like it was there and not.. i would see the content but my computer would halt for a while... now i dont know what to do.. is it the hard drive.. is there something else?? last time I talked to someone at hp they mentioned i should try to format the hd (fujitsu is the brand, I searched around and i believe is not a good one) and i'm not completely sure where to go with this hd.. i dont want this friend of mine to spend 74 canandians on stupid 40 gig hd... but I'm running out of altenatives.. now.. if it's not the hd.. what else could've caused a failure like this in the middle on a system recovery.. the computer did the recovery the fist time fine.. without any inconvinience... could it be the fact that is 5 years old and the recovery process was probably too much for it to handle??
any suggestions would be highly appreciated...
PD. I tried chckdsk /r while the hd was connected to my computer thru run> cmd (and got an "unspecified error occured" message at the 3/5 stages) It has got to be the mf hd. doesn't it? but some how it feels It may not be.. now I'm just a freaking cheap [bleep] but i feel like i completely mess it up for doing a simple system recovery, that's why I'm not willing to give up just yet on the hard drive.
