Hi..Can't figure this out! My friend's computer crashed after running a virtual community. I've tried loading windows both by way of repair and clean install. Every time stop code 000000050 creeps up and when we try a fresh installation, it says there are no partitions listed to format. It says unknown disk 4 times down the partition list. I looked up stop code and it said possible memory error, so I ran bootable memtest. Both Rams seem to pass. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

not sure what nortons will do for the drive ,did you get to format the drive ,and then get the errors when you tried to install .

I can't format the drive since windows disk always comes up with error screen no matter what I choose. I was told by someone that if a virus had been downloaded, that running Norton bootable and leaving for about 8 hours, would scan pc for viruses. Norton is only giving me an A prompt. Trying to troubleshoot that now.

if it not seeing the drive then its quite possiable that the drive has died!! I thrown out many that no longer function in this way !try taking it out and slaving it to another computer,to see if you can excess it .

Sorted..kinda! I used Ranish and deleted existing partition. I created new one and loaded windows. PC now showing I drive as my C drive, but I am still missing my other hard drive. Windows loaded and fully functional so I will leave for a bit until I can figure out how to get both drives up and running
