Hard Drive Help :]
I am at school, and I am trying to fix a teacher's computer.
It is a Dell Dimension 8400.
Here is the problem:
I turn on the PC, and it goes past the Windows XP screen with scrolling loading bar, and then you get a blue screen of death.
The blue screen of death message is as follows:
STOP: 0x000000ED (0x873D6A68, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000"
So I tried to go to the Recovery Console with the XP cd in the CD-ROM drive, but it wouldn't let me go to it because it said:
"Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer."
I ran the diagnostic on the HDD and it said failed and the return code was just "?"
There are files on the computer that are needed, and I need to get them back, and get the computer back running.
So... Help away :]
