The computer WAS an asus running windows 7. It's now a computer with totally empty disk. If you don't believe that, boot from a Linux disk (CD, DVD) and have a loop at the wiped disk.
Hi all. I am new here and am by no means a computer professional. I am fairly good at being able to read things on the internet and steps to take to fix something that is fixable on a computer, however. My issue is this....i am trying to wipe a couple of computer hard drives and i am on the first computer ....all was going great and it was at pass 11 of 35 in the process and i checked it this morning and there is a black screen over the blue pass screen and it has this message:
irq 16: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)

Disabling IRQ #16
I have no idea what any of this means or what i should do to try and fi the issue to be able to get the wiping to work like i need to. Can anyone help?? In as simple of terms as possible please. The computer is an asus running windows 7 if that matters at all.
Thanks so much!
