Symc810.sys is corrupted?

  cara 22:09 30 Nov 2004

Continuing from my earlier thread re: re-formating my computer in conjunction with a recovery disk - I much prefer to do it via the disk if possible.

However, when booting up with the recovery disk I get the above message. What does this mean?

The only thing I can think of is that my brother has made a couple of minor upgrades. Surely that would not make the recovery disk useless?

I can re-install Windows XP with the disk, but a formatting option should also be included (according the the mesh instruction booklet). But I cannot format with the disk!

Thanks, Cara

Thanks VOG,

I have been told by Mesh that the error message 'symc810.sys is corrupted' indicates the Hard Drive has failed.

Other than trying to re-format with the recovery disk - there is no idication that the HD has failed. So, does this seem correct. Can a HD fail in this way with no other apparent symptons?
