... I'm officially at a loss...

I'm assuming you have a drive that's on it's way to harddrive heaven... I'm hoping that I'm wrong though...

@zzz2496: I was able to get to the command prompt using the f8 option. when I tried to check the disk using chkdsk it says something like RAW. then later, it is already unrecognized. I need those data found at the Hard drive. OHHH!

Can you read the data off that HDD using other means (Linux/XP/whatever you got there)? If it said RAW, most of the time you're screwed... But I think most of data recovery software can recover it... probably a corrupted MFT or something...

Did you try re-imaging?
What platform do you have AMD or Intel?

You want the HD diagnostics for your make HD which theog posted. Burn to CD, it will autostart with HD plugged.

HD diagnostics/repair full scans can repair HD's and extend their life indefinitely. I have saved many HD's using GWScan for WD and most other makes. You only need to autostart it and run full scan to find out what will be.

Re-imaging

Reimaging is formating the pc and installing xp, vista, or windows 7 over again. Its usually the last resort. But if you have a backup image it much faster than troubleshooting.

Changing the Windows 7 Boot Screen back to Vista's boot screen
Hi all, I find that the Windows 7 boot screen slows down the boot process on my machine. Is there a way to restore the old Vista scrolling loading bar? I know it's there as my netbook uses it. Thanks.
