It has been 4 years since I purchased my computer and it contains 2 hard drives.
About a month ago I purchased a DVD To iPod Converter, and it required me to download some sort of ASPI Driver. So, whenever I did, it asked for me to restart my computer, and that was the last I saw of EVERYTHING I had.
The problem was, It would go through its usual Boot Loading Process, from the startup screen, to the black page with the white words, and then lastly the computer would make its "BEEP BOP BEEP" loading noises, but it would never go to the "Windows XP" loading screen. Once I selected to open "Windows XP Home Edition", it would restart from the beginning, and continue to restart over and over again and never would go to the page where I could type in my password.
So, I went in my computer and manually disconnected the drive that I used, and used my other hard drive that I had, installed Windows XP all over again. I was wondering, can my damaged hard drive still be fixed?
Not long ago I loaded into Safe Mode with the newly installed Windows XP, and while I was on that I connected my old hard drive in and it showed up in My Computer. Some old files were there, but whenever I tried to restart with having that hard drive still connected, it did the same thing as before: restarted over and over again and never would go to the password screen.
Should I just delete everything that I see on that hard drive? Or is there something there that I need to uninstall? What do I need to do to fix this situation?
