Hey!
So I'm in a bit of a dilemma after I decided to wipe my very slow Intel computer so that it would work again.
After it spent all wiping I turned it on this morning to find a disk error or something of the sort. It said that I should hit any key and I did so, with no result.
This computer isn't turning on which is frustrating for me considering I have work that needs to be done (saved to a USB).
Something else that you should know is that the disk port doesn't work....

I really need this resolved so thank you very much!!

If you wiped the Hard Drive then you would need to reinstall an Operating System (Windows or Linux for example) for the computer to work. If you wiped the disk with the WORK on it, then the Work is gone as well. Which Disk Port are you talking about that is not working?

Exactly HOW did you wipe this computer? ie from a boot disk, secure erase using linux, just wipe free space, what?

Exactly what does not work ie sata port on the motherboard or what?
