I have a little problem here. I was playing a game on my XP sytem (NTFS) and the monitor blanked out and the computer rebooted. Upon startup, it hung on the DMI Pool Data screen. I tried several things to get past there, and then booted from the CD with the XP disk. I got as far as Repair, using the repair console, which just looks to me like DOS. I ran "chkdsk /p" and it found a lot of errors and fixed them.
I was then able to boot. At this point I probably should have tried to get my files off the computer (no, they weren't backed up ). Instead, I ran Norton Disk Doctor, which found no errors. I ran WinDoc, which found like 65 errors, and fixed them. Then I rebooted, and ended up in an endless loop of rebooting. I booted to the CD again, and went inot the reapir console, and ran "chkdsk /p" again. This time it said there were 2 unrecoverable errors on the disk.
When I exited, and tried to reboot, I got that endless rebooting loop again, and I also couldn't boot with the CD. I finally pulled the hard drive and put it as a slave on my wifes computer (running XP). It found it, but I can't access the NTFS partition on my drive. I can access the FAT32 partitions on the drive, but the NTFS partition properties says the disk has a RAW file system. Is this partition toast?
