I am using Dell laptop running Windows XP home edition. It worked okay until one day it stopped functioning. After doing some checking, I found out that the partition was changed(corrupted?).It was set to 'unknown' instead of NTFS. I tried to use the 'convert' command, to no avail. Later on I decided to format the whole hard drive and it stopped halfway giving an error message saying 'DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS '. Since then, my laptop could not detect the hard drive anymore. It even gives a cracking sound for quite some time after it is turned on. I tried running Dell diagnostic CD and it did not detect any problem, I could however go to command prompt and drive c only contains files like sys.com, scandisk.ini, and so on. It says 'Volume in drive c is MS-RAMDRIVE'. I suppose it is reading the RAM as the main drive or isn't is? How can I solve this problem and get my Windows running again? Thank you so much...:cheesy:
