hi, was fine for weeks, even months and i tried to boot up this morning and it wouldn't. tried to repair but didn't recognise my windows folder, so i just installed on my second drive. i now want to repair the original installation. can i do this, and how plz. thanks.
when i trty to boot up, i gat the message; we appologise fo rthe inconvenience, but windows could not start proprerly. this may be due to a poor shutdown etc. etc. i get thte choice of; load normally, safe mode and all the others. safe mode doesn't work. neither do the others. although, i i select; start windows normally, i ge tthe splash screen, and it begins to load, but then i get a bsod, but only for a bout half a second. not enough time to read it. i have just used a seagate diag programme. there is a generic test on there also. the drive seems to be fine. except the serial number is just a collection of zero's. the drive size is reported correctly, as is the name of the drive, jst the serial no is wrong. i'm going to try unplugging the other seagate from the ribbon, and see what happens.
rayuk, the drive is nearly 3 yrs old. the fact of the matter is i have threads in this forum going back 3 yrs. had lots of problem with the machine locking up all the time. looks like it was the temp, ,but i sort of have that sorted now. dismantled my system to get loadds of air thru it.. temp is still around 46-50+ under load.
Can you see the Nikimi drive from the 2nd drive you have installed the os on?if so you could transfer any data you need to keep onto this one just in case anything you do loses the drive completely.
You dont say what Windows you are using.As a last resort you could try installing over itself though I think you loose all the programs you have previously installed[thats why I advice to try and copy over any data first]
Try Google "repair MS Windows installation" Dont forget the MS as I have just done or you will get double glazing out of your ears
