I have a windows 98 comp, and it seems the hard drive fails to load after a power outtage occurred in my house. It comes to the "os wont load" screen. Right before that screen, you physically hear the hard drive loading, like powering on, and then it suddenly turns off. I checked on a win98 boot disc that the hard drive wasnt present, and it surely wasnt. So is the hard drive dead and not worth trying anything else, or is there a simple fix to this? Thanks!
