Hey someone i need help with my computer.... i Installed a password protecter for Windows 98 but it also disables the c drive and anything eles i want. Well that was all fine and dandy untill i decided i want to take it off i went into the add remove programs to get rid of it and it said that you need to type a password so i tryed everything and it wwould not take it. so i when c/program files the folder and deleted the folder and then went back to the add remove programs and removed it and that was that. (or at least i thought) i restarted my computer and the bios would not reconize the drive and cant access anything it really

Sounds to me like the drive died on you. Just coincedence it happened on the back of that password program deal.

I'd try this though. Pull the jumpers off of it and put it on it's own IDE channel to see it your bios will find it then. I have a couple of Western Digital drives and I know they're very particular about correct jumper settings. Worth a shot to see if your drive is still good.

harddrive probs

yep i agree with lonman. Sounds like the drive went bad. If his suggestion doesnt work, remember that most harddrives have a 3 year warranty from the manufacture or date of purchase with reciept. Go to there website and see if they have a serial number checker to check for warranty. Also there maybe a date on the drive itself.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
