reformatt it or find out who makes the hard drive and go to there website they might have a program which can fix it. I had a hard drive that a thought sh!t the bed. I went to the site grabed there hard drive test program and used it to reformatt it cause trying to formatt it any other way wouldnt let me. The program put I think all zeros at the beginning and end of the hard drive which somehow made it to let me formatt it. I could be wrong about zeros it could have been ones but thats not the point. Make a long story short see if theres a program for ur hard drive at the website its manufactured from.If ur lucky like I was theyll have a diagnostics program to fix it. Maybe someone else will know of a program thats universal to all hard drives but im not sure if there is one.

Do you have an old H.D.(one you don't care too much about) with an OS on it that you could hook up, and if it does the same thing , it's probably either a memory prob. or MB (corrupt BIOS)

Also check ribbon cable for defects, bent pins on the H.D. and MB where the cable connects.

Good Luck..... ;)
