that will get the system running. From there the programs you can put back in at your pace.

The drive checks out ok, which means the ide ribbon and controller are functioning correctly. he memory checks out fine
It's not a memory issue then
We tried the repair and that wants to format. There is an issue that I am beginning to believe is still related to the infection that started all this. There seems to be something that is interfering with everything we do. The most likely suspect is that mcafee didn't get it cleaned before it did the damage.
What ever you do don't copy any exe files. If this is one of a couple of infections the exe files is what it spreads by. Just backup data only. the programs can be reinstalled after we make sure everything is formatted and back up and running correctly. Without being able to get you into windows the malware techs won't be able to help. Formatting will prob be the best thing at this point.

On the 4700 does the cable have a very small flat connector?
IDE has a wide multi hole connector ribbon

the problem plugging it into laptop is no way to power it.
the other option is to buy a external enclosure
have it for a sata drive to usb. That way you can plug it into the usb connector on the 4300 or if the laptop has a usb connector you could do it that way also.

Given that disk prices have come down, here's my new plan: get a new (and higher capacity) SATA, clean install Windows on it, then recover files from the old SATA at my leisure.

Please go to the "Malware Forum" link in my signature below and follow the instructions at the top
Especially the "You Must Read This Before Posting A HijackThis Log".
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself.
If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty start a topic and post the requested logs in THAT forum.
Once the malware technicians have cleared out any infection and given you a clean bill of health, and if the problem continues then feel free to post back here and we can investigate the problem even more.
Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

When I attempt to access from Windows it says "disk has not been formatted", from a cmd shell it says "CRC error", SeaTools reports a high number of errors.
Maybe it was an accident waiting to happen, but just wondering if anyone has ideas on other avenues to pursue.
