I am having a strange problem. I have two hard drives with 80 GB each. Drive 1 has a 10 GB windows partition while drive 2 is divided into two 40 GB partitions. Whenever I try to copy any data, the computer restarts and windows is no longer there. Sometimes the partition will also get wiped. First I thought this might be due hard drive so I changed the hard drive.

But nothing happened so I changed my motherboard and it worked. Nothing happened for a few months. Then last week, as I turned on my computer, my 2nd The hard drive was completely blank. I formatted it and tried to boot up but it failed as windows were absent. Any help ?

Wow… it’s awesome! You are saying that your window is gone. Now let me know whether your windows came back eventually or you restarted the system. Is there any way that someone is playing with your system and partitions? Try replacing old hard drives or cables.

It may also be due to your old hard drive corrupting your new one. Try installing one hard drive instead of two as you might be making a mistake with two drives, putting you in this situation. Also try to contact your hard drive manufacturers, maybe they can help you some way.

Some virus or mal-ware may also be a reason for this situation. So I will recommend you to run a full virus scan on both of your hard drives. Yes, motherboard may also be the reason but you already have ruled that option out by replacing your motherboard with a new one. Your motherboard comes with new cables so use those new cables instead of the old ones.

Power supply can also be an option. I think your power supply is not receiving enough power to spin up and report its partition. Data is stored on the HDD magnetically and so if the power supply is not giving enough power continuously, then this may be a cause, which can obviously be cured by replacing a good power supply.

And one last option is pull out everything you don’t need and see what happens. But leave your motherboard, memory, processor, keyboard, mouse, power supply and video card. And if the problem persists then you have a clue what thing is giving you the problem. You can reach this by testing these items with some other machine.

Hi,

It may be happening because of the back sector. When a disk drive has such a problem like back sector, then it creates this kind of problems. Windows can not store data in those back sectors and restart computer automatically for safety. In this case you can use software to remove or repair your back sector at once.

Maybe you can download this software “Disk repair software v1.10.x” and install it. It’s free and easy to use. It’s a hard disk utility. You can use it as hard disk space recovery or back sector remover.
