My girlfriends Toshiba died because while running defrag, she accidentally unplugged AC adapter, battery ran down and every off. Now it won't boot, says PXE error, I assume because HDD is no longer bootable. I tried WD lifeguard, and every program I could find on the web, including easus. Back in the old days 80's, as long as HDD was not physically damaged, it was easy to Fdisk, or format, etc. It seems I have been out of the loop for so long that there is software on the drive now that I know nothing about. I really don;t think the drive is physically damaged because all I was, was power off wrong. Any ideas? I am thinking maybe if I can get it to boot off something else, I could try to use a new UBCD on my external enclosure to try to fix old drive, But ?????
