1. It has been removed.
2, It has gone south.
3, The motherboard has gone south.
It's up to you or a tech to find out which of the three applies. It's up to you to see if it's worth the cost of repair.
Before I discard this laptop, I would like too see if anybody could help.
I have an Acer laptop, which I used mostly for testing software. Somehow it got a virus or damaged, I completely lost the OS, I have the OS disc but it will not load them, keep s saying no HD found,
it will not boot up, just a blank screen, I have bought boot discs from ebay, also bought formatting disc, which proved useless, would it be possible for me to format the HD, then reload my XP windows disc, or shall I dump it, any help will be appreciated
