mabr Posted September 16, 2012 Share Posted September 16, 2012 Ok I need some advice. Some may remember I had a hard drive do the clicking death about a year ago. Well Toshiba fixed it under warranty and it has been great until the last 2 days. Yesterday the screen froze up and the screen brightness gradually went dim until the laptop just shut off. I hit power button and it came up with a warning that windows shut down in properly and asked the question of how to start windows up. I did normal and it rebooted fine. This morning It did it again, although this time after powering it back on a bios menu popped up and no matter what I hit it would say it was in-operable i think is the term it said. Well I pulled the hard drive out let it sit for a few minutes and plugged it in and it started just like nothing happened and is still acting normal as I type this.My question, Is this a symptom i need to be worried about, Like the HD is going to crash soon? I have kasperski anti virus and it says it's not a virus or similar issue based on it scanning the system . I backed up everything to my seagate free agent go flex external storage devise for this laptop today so I'm not worried about files i might lose if it were to crash. But I don't have any CD's made to restore operating systems or software installed on this laptop so I want to have those systems should It crash. Or are they already saved on the seagate drive? All I do is plug it in via usb port and it automatically does it, but what its saving i don't really know. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to be down again for 3 weeks waiting on Toshiba to get it back to me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
