Last week my main hard drive broke, in the evening it worked but next morning it wouldn't. When I boot up my computer the hard drive makes a loud looping noise, like it would be reading some data over and over again. No clicking.
The hard drive is Seagate ST31000, Crystal Disk info has shown some "warning" and some reallocated sectors (~100) before.
BIOS or Windows won't boot when I have this hard drive connected, after pressing Bios setup it will just initialize. When trying to enter Windows it asks to enter a boot able device.
I can't seem to get far with just Googles help, as I cant find out if the BIOS is recognizing the HDD or not..
Is there anything to be saved here?
My computer specs:
Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro
CPU: Intel i5 750
RAM: G.Skill ECO
GPU: ASUS 5870
Power: Cooler Master GX 750 W
Thanks for your time.
