TOSHIBA MK6014MAP

by napalm / October 27, 2003 5:35 AM PST

own a Compaq Presario 1200XL-119 Laptop that has a Toshiba MK6014MAP hard disk drive in it. Recently when I try to boot it says Error loading Operating System. So I boot into DOS and when I try to access the C:\ drive it says that the media is not ready. I'm unable to do anything on my computer right now. I checked out Compaq's web site and they had nothing to say that helped. So then i tried Toshiba, and again nothing. If anyone knows of any third party utility that i could use to fix this problem i would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

If FDISK will have nothing to do with the drive, swap the drive out and see if that fixes it.
