When your computer does boot up, shows a black screen, or shows the log screen and then reboots, you can sometimes fix the master boot record (MBR) that is in the boot sector of your hard drive. In this example I am using an original Windows XP CD (not an OEM).How to repair the boot sector of a hard drive 1..Put your original Windows XP CD into the CD drive of your computer.2..Restart your computer and hopefully it will come up and say press any key to boot from the CD.3..So therefore you must press any key on your keyboard to start from the CD.4..If this does not come up you need to enter your bios and change the boot order or sequence. See How to get into Your BIOS and change settings.5..A blue screen will appear and you are on your way..6..You may need to press F8 to agree to the Windows Setup agreement.7..After that the setup options will appear (see screen shot below).8..Do not press ENTER as it will start installing Windows from scratch and you will loose all of your data on your hard drive. 9..Press the letter R on your keyboard to enter the Recovery Console.10..When Recovery Console starts you will have to enter the number that corresponds with the installation you want to repair. For example if you have only one Windows installed on your computer then you would press the number one key. If you have two operating systems on your computer and you want to repair the second one then press 2.
I will try this. Last few days my E drive gets very slow. Every time i paste some data i takes long time paste. Is it with bad sector?
