    Odd hard drive behavior

    Two days ago I defraged my primary hard drive before I went to bed. When I woke up the next day my laptop was on a black screen so I held the power button until it shut down. When I tried to boot it up I got a message saying no hard drive was found. After a while of searching online I decided to reinstall windows with a bootable USB device. I installed my second back up hard drive (has nothing but miscellaneous files and programs. Nothing windows related) to get a few important files onto it for when I reinstall windows. With the second hard drive installed the computer booted normally from the primary drive. I thought this was just a glitch of some sort and forgot about it.

    Today I removed the second hard drive to use on another computer and when I tried booting my laptop it said there was no hard drive installed. So my laptop won't recognize any drive unless both hard drives are installed.

    N95 Odd Screen Behavior..

    Hello Odd hard drive behavior :)

    2 days ago, when I turned the N95 V20 on, the system booted as usual, a little while later the screen lights went off, which is normal since there was no activity.

    I put the phone on my bed, and like 5 seconds later the screen lights (only the screen lights, not the keys)came on by itself, like I pressed on button or something.

    Like 5 seconds after the lights come on, a SMS message appeared on screen.

    Usually, when there is a new SMS message, the screen light comes on and immediately after the screen lights come on, the message appears on screen with the corresponding sound.

    But in this case, there were 5 seconds or so delay...

    Should I worry about this issue?


    Thank you.

    Ok so I looked at both the hard drives in disk management and the second hard drive has a 200 MB partition called "EFI System Partition".
