    Hi,

    I have a WD HD was possibly damaged in a strange way
    when my son unplugged the CD Writer connected together
    while the computer was on. Since, the HD stoped working.
    I've formated it, and re-installed Windows XP on it, but at start
    (in the black screen) it gives the following Warning:
    "Failure predicted on your master drive. Immediately back up
    your data and replace your Hard Disk drive. A failuke may be
    imminent." Then it asks to press F1 to continue.

    On the other hand, it works fine with Windows newly installed.
    Do I risk any thing or it's just one of those warnings ?...

    Thanks for replying,
    BD

    In my experience, take the warning seriously.
