I accidentally pulled out the HDD IDE cable while the PC was running. And I stupidly pluged it back in while the PC was still running
The computer turned off, and I started it up again. I got the normal eMachines white screen, but after that the I get a black screen with a flashing ' _ ' on the top left.
I took the HDD out and put it as a slave on a differant system, and all was going well untill a slight nudge caused the PC to turn off, and from then on, I couldn't access the HDD.
Now I put it back into the orgiginal PC, and I get Operating System not Found.
Once again I took it to another PC, and tried it there. Now I for the error Slave HDD Failure.
I cannt afford to lose the data on the harddisk, I have all my GCSE Course work.
Please let me know what i must do.
