I rebooted the computer using the Windows XP Reinstallation disk and ran the CHKDSK /R and it came back with the message that there are 1 or more errors on the drive. I then ran a hard drive diagnostics test, and it returned the following information:
Drive 0: Maxtor 6Y080M0 - Fail. Return Code: 7
Drive 2: Samsung CDRW/DVD SM-352F - Diagnostics not supported
I have not run any other CHKDSK commands.
Is there anything I can do at this point to save my hard drive, or is everything lost, meaningless, hopeless, and grey?
