what hard drive do you have installed?
If we are lucky it's gone back to default settings when the battery died.
If we are unlucky the drive is dying, but we can check that once we know its set up correctly
Still believe, that should be lucky option 😀
Hard drive is on the pictures- Conner CP3111. What do you think - what destroys Hard Drive faster - high amount of hours when PC is ON, or long idling ? Last two - three years due to various reasons I have not switched this PC on.
Nice, Conner drives have a nice sound to them 😀
This page shows the cmos settings you'll want to see in setup.
If that's all correct then run scandisk from dos prompt including the surface scan which will take forever.
I think its pure luck with hard drives. I've had drives sit idle for years and still work yet others in the same box have died.
likewise I've had servers go though 2 or 3 drives yet another drive in the array lasts the sever lifetime.
