View Full Version : Hard Drive

02-07-04, 10:32 PM
I am fixing a computer that started freezing on start up after is vacumed out...now I have it narrowed down to the hard drive. Maxtor's Powermax says that the Hard Drive is okay. But after doing everything before the first re boot in windows xp setup, the computer will hang with a blank screen and a white cursor. You can move the cursor around, but nothing else ever appears on the screen.

Anyone have any ideas?

Maxtors Powermax is crap... :rotfl:

had a HDD die on me..
Maxtors Powermax says it's OK..
magically starts working again for about a week or two..
then it dies for good..that time Maxtors Powermax said it was screwed..

Do you think it could be a PSU Issue?

ESD from the vacuum maybe?
