If damage is too severe, you try other tools like Norton Disk Doctor and in the end a wipe and restore from backup.
New users are now demanding functionality that has not been included or even thought of. Let me be blunt that PCs are not appliances.
My computer one day decided not to boot.
It hangs right after the bad quality bitmap "loading windows 2000" screen and instead of jumping to a login prompt just sits at a blank screen.
To make a long story short, I ran three versions of the manufacturers utility and none of them found bad sectors on the drive. So when i dropped the drive into a working windows 2000 box and tried to chkdsk it says the following...
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>chkdsk H:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Unable to determine volume version and state. CHKDSK aborted.
What can I do to fix this?
I've searched high and low and well I haven't been able to find much of anything. :*(
