Hi there again...

New trouble :p

My old computer (quick speccs: Athlon 1.4ghz, 512mb 99mhz RAM, geforce3 200 Ti 64mb)has began with not booting at all.

Just suddenly, when I took a break from building my new one (-.-) I tried to boot it, but it seems like the HDD is gone baby gone (broken).

The message I get is the usual one:

Verifying DMI Pool data ........
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM : Failure ...
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM : Failure ...
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


The computer is 8 years old, so it's not the monster it was when I bought it xD

I have some data on the hard drive which I'd like to have on my new one, and also I don't think it's ready for the scrapyard yet :p


I've never had a single problem with it before, not hardware nor software.

It's probably because it's old...but if someone knows anything I can do, please :O



EDIT: tried again, and this time a new message:
Updating ESCD ... Success (yehay =)
Verifying Pool Data ...............
(yes, there was an empty line here)
*Ett diskläsfel uppstod
Tryck ned Ctrl+Alt+Del för omstart*

*A ^diskfaulth^ occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del for reboot*

^Dunno any better translation for that word, sry^

You can attempt to slave the old hd into your new pc and recover the files you wanted. It really depends on how "dead" the drive is. Just try reseating connections on the old machine first
