Hey guys, I have a problem with one of my hard drives, and hoping someone can help me. I just got a Used 40gb Seagate Hard Drive, and I wiped it cleaned, did a fresh install of XP, and then loaded my normal software, and video. However, the problem started when I wanted to abort of burning a DVD on Nero. I did that, and the DVD drive kept spinning instead, with the light blinking, I could not open the DVD drive at all, and it would not let me close it down. I had restarted the system, and the normal start up screens info came up, but when it got up the the section with the Windows Logo with the status bar, I got a black screen instead. I tried repair + other things, and finally gave up. The Data was still shown to be on the drive. I did another clean, and re-install again. When I tried to boot up today, the drive wouldn't even let me get past the start up screen before the Windows Logon, and I couldn't load my Win XP CD, it would just stale, no blinking light. I tried using my other hard drive 10gb, and have had no problems at all before and after this started happening when I got it 5 days ago from my bro. Could anyone explain the problem (corrupted HD?), or help me fix this problem? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
