    Hello guys,
    I have a problem, Yesterday night i was just working on my pc, there was a problem, when i shutdown my system, it was not shutting down just hanged. Then i on my pc today 26/4/04, but it refused to accept my hard disk.
    When I boot from a bootable cd, it gives me some errors
    1-that your drive c: has an invalid fat or fat32 partition.
    2-there may some viruses preventing your hard drive to register.
    3-you may have 3rd party softwares antiviruses, that may be reason for this.

    Then I attach this hard disk as slave with another one, to pick data from this but unfortunately again it is not accessible, what can be the problem.thanks,
