Harddrive Will Not Reformat
I recently accidentally shut off the power strip as my computer was shutting down. I was then unable to reboot my computer, tried a few fixes which failed, and decided to reformat. I booted up the XP Pro disc, let it load, and pressed enter (to "Set up Windows XP now"). After agreeing to the licensing agreement, the list of hard drives is empty and each space says "Unkown Disk, <There is no disk in this drive.>"
If I try to select a drive or fix a partition, it goes to a blue screen saying this:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer....etc etc.
*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xF77C0C13, 0xF73967E4, 0x00000000)
*** setupdd.sys - Address F77C0C13 base at F7794000, Datestamp 41107c8f
Can anyone tell me what this means? Is the harddrive fried?
And my computer is home built (3 years ago) with an AMD64 3400+ cpu with asus a8v deluxe mobo, 1GB PC3200, 75GB raptor, and an ati video card, 9800pro i think...
