Hard Drive Gone???

  ventanas 09:00 15 May 2007

One of the office machines, started with a STOP (Unmountable Boot Volume) Now all it comes up with is Disk Read Error Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart. Which just brings up the same message.

Grateful for any confirmations etc.

Hi, I would suggest that the hard drive has had it! I did a Google on your behalf and found many others with the same problem, I could not find any who had 'cured' their problem.

If there is info on the drive which you would like to keep it might be possible to connect the drive as a Slave on another pc.

Otherwise I think a new drive is in order.

Yep, just had it confirmed by Dell support. Fortunately being a business machine it has a full set of restore discs, not one of those infernal partitions. So just need to fit a new drive, and I've got a drawer full. Could just do without this today.

Grreat, so no life-threatening problem then. Thanks for the feedback.
