Hi there, I have and Imedia 1601 and I have been having problems with the recovery program. i cant get on xp at all now it just keeps launching the recovery program everytime I switch on. ive tried partial recovery, complete recovery and it keeps saying at the end of recovery "erroe happened during recovery plz try again"

It has also said "no valid partition plz wait until we create a partition" it reboots and recovery starts again and the process is repeated.

I have noticed that during the recovery it seems to stick at certain points..81% and then 91% i can hear it sticking too.

I havent had a new hard drive or anything installed apart from ram ages ago (it has been recovered since then)

what do u think?? i dont know it itss the HDD i dont know how to check.

Im taking it to get repaired but just wanted to know what you think first.
