Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Hi mustwatchtv,

1. Stop any further activity on the HDD (if you have any data that you would like to recover).

2. In particular do not run check disk under this condition. In trying to repair there is a possibility that it could muck up the HDD further and corrupt any data and make it worse.When one suspects an impending HDD failure, running check disk is not recommended..

3. Prepare a live Linux CD/pendrive with another computer, boot from it and copy all data you may want to recover to an external device. Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer

4. Once you have recovered the data, run the HDD manufacturer's diagnostic/repair utility.

Hi NoN,
Congratulations on your Gold Member badge.
