hmm…i left my comp running all night as usual yesterday, when i got back i couldnt access any of my 120 gig hds that are connected to a promise ata133 controller (along with 2 other hds).
windows kept saying “the semaphore timeout period expired”
so i go and reboot…as my comp is shutting down…i get an error for 1 of the 120 gigs saying “delayed write failed, data lost”
after the reboot…both drives appear in my explorer, yet i cant access them, windows says they arent formatted…one of my drives was empty so i go and try format that, as soon as it starts, my comp reboots. i’ve tried various ways to format the hd, all of failed…anyone know whats up?
