Toshiba Satellite A300 - no acces to second HD

\015 I had a serious problem with my laptop, related to crcdisk.sys. (vista fails to load) After several hours investigating, I gave up and send my computer to technical service. \015\012Do not ask me why, but they have changed the Main Hard disk and mother board (after a whole month working on it)\015\012The question is that this laptop has 2 hard disks. The main one with a partition for recovery, and d: 250 Gb each.\015\012Now I can see the 2nd hard drive from windows, but I cannot explore or watch the content. However Mcafee Security, is analysing the disk properly and I can wacth the file manes on the screen while scanning. \015\012The only ideas from Toshiba Tech support is send it yo us again. I am afraid to send the computer again to this guys. Maybe they change the screen.\015\012Any idea?\015\012Thanks for your cooperation\015

Answers :

Okay, the driver for the second hard drive (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.
\015\012Do the following:
\015\012Press the windows key and R
\015\012Type in command
\015\012In the command prompt that comes up:
\015\012Type in cd C:\\Windows\\System32\\
\015\012Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
\015\012Type in del hal.dll
\015\012Then restart your computer
\015\012What taskkill does is kill the second hard drive applications that is using the\015\012driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will\015\012automatically reinstall the second hard drive driver, and the problem will be\015\012fixed!
