Ok so here is the situation. Recently I had my harddrive act funny. It would go through the shutdown procedures and remain in a stasis mode, if you will. I would have to shut it down via the good old reset then power button. Here is what happened two days ago. The computer was left one all night via stasis. Afterwards, I shut it down then reboot about 3 hours later. It works and I do a quick shut down. Hour later, it doesn't boot and I get the blue screen of death with the error "Unrecognizeable volume" I cannot reformat, I cannot boot with a different OS. I cannot do anything. Is there anyway that I can recuperate the data that I have on the harddrive. The harddrive is a Maxtor, 20gb. The OS is Windows XP Pro. The computer 800mhz P3 with 373MB of ram.\ If your wondering how I am able to communicate is that I bought a new harddrive and installed a fresh Windows XP Home edition. However, before any suggestions, I tried connecting the harddrive as a slave with the CS jumper configuration on the Maxter and tried to run windows xp home to see if I can use it as an extra drive and it gave me the blue screen of death.
