Mother Board: I dunno (4.5 years Old) all i know its INTEL
Processor: Intel Pentium 200MHz
RAM: 32 MB
HDD: 2.1GB SEAGATE
I have a major problem here, last night my HDD was working fine though for past one week whenever i switched on my computer, scandisk started on its own (even if i switched off my computer properly) i got message saying, "one or more hard drives have bad sectors, run surface scan".
I ignored it all this while.
Then this morning, when i switched it on, i let scandisk run, it asked me to save some lost cluster, i saved it, then it asked me for undo information screen, i said "skip undo"" then i let it boot normally,
i got an error saying (i dont remember file name clearly) VFBACKUP.exe (not sure) file could not be loaded, please load OS.
so i rebooted my system, it got an error saying "press F1 to continue, Primary Master Not Found, Press Del, to enter Setup"
I pressed Del, i got into the setup, i "auto detected my HDD" it successfully detected it, but when i save it any tried to reboot, i get the same error, saying "Primary Master Not found",
so basically, my computer is detecting my HDD (2.1 GB SEAGATE) in Setup but when i boot i cant access it!!! please help, i have some critical data in it... i badly need it, :(
i dont know what should i do to retrieve my data!!!
