    Well now, missing HD showed up again in Windows just as I was about to replace it. Guess I'll back it up and replace it anyway. Thanks for your help everyone. Much appreciated!

    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    Shows up in Device Manager but in Disk Manager shows up as Unallocated. Both say device is working properly. Disk Mgr says status is Not Initialized. Whenever I try to initial it, I get I/O Error. I was using it yesterday when I first installed Windows 10 but then I tried to backup some files...

    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    Looks like I might have to convert the partition MBR instead of GPT. How can I check to see if I'm booted in UEFI mode or Legacy? Thanks.

    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    Now trying clean install but it says that it can't be installed on SSD because it is of the GPT partition type. Ideas? Thanks.

    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    It didn't accept my key from Win 7 but might have been because it was OEM version.

    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    Tried to do a download Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 7 Pro. Did not work out very well. System will not boot. Bios recognizes my HDs but the Windows boot sequence does not. Am using Boot Repair Disk (Linux) right now to back up files. Is it worth trying a clean reinstall of Windows 7 from DVD...

    Need Help Urgently!!!

    Went through first two procedures with no change. Removed GPU and plugged into Mobo VGA and booted up. Think I'll check with a friend to see if he has a GPU that I can borrow to test. Thanks.

    Need Help Urgently!!!

    Well I got everything up on a table where I can work at it. Hooked up one monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Inadvertently plugged monitor into Mobo VGA and it booted up fine. So I re-seated the GPU and now it won't boot either way again. Will follow all of lowfat's suggestions and report back. Thanks.

    Need Help Urgently!!!

    Hi Folks, Been quite a while since I have been on the forum. Long story short, lost my job and had to start my own company a couple of years ago. Time to play much or stay current on computer tech went out the window. This morning, my computer shut down suddenly and will not restart. Powers...
