Noise from my hard disk
ekajohn Dec-26-01 10:51 AM
I finish to work. Next day I start my omputer and no hard disk present. I turn it of and power it aigain. I heard noise (ka ka kaka) from it. Someone told me virus can damage the hard disk engine.
Is it possible?
Can I repair it?

Possible, but it more likely that the drive failed. What drive is it? Larry

A Virus CANNOT damage or destroy an engine, but can corrupt your hard drive's BIOS.
If so, it becomes USELESS.
It can also be a failure due to wearing out.
Both cases are unrepairable.
