    I am having major problems with my hard drive. When I attempt to boot the system, I get a "Boot Disk Error" message. I am able to boot from my rescue disk, but, once I get to the command prompt and try running my hard drive disk scanner, I get an error message that the system cannot access Drive C (the hard drive).

    I have tried re-installing Windows using the "System Recovery" disk that came with my system, and I, again, get the message that Drive C is not accessible.

    Also, the problem started when I got the "Blue Screen of Death" with the message that the system could not write to Drive C. When I hit enter, the machine rebooted itself and the problems began.

    Please help....what can I do so that I don't lose all of my data......

    Hi, RTS1971!

    Does the hard drive show up in the BIOS?

    Unplug the keyboard and powerup. It should tell you what key to press to enter Setup
