You don't tell if it can run flawlessly (including accessing all your files on the hard disks) from a Linux Live CD/DVD.
- If it can't it's a hardware issue that needs repair.
- If it can it's a Windows issue, and the easiest way to solve that in such cases is a clean install.
Can somebody help me please. I'm not a computer newbie so i know what I'm doing. anyway Ive had this problem for a while but have sometimes manged to get my computer working again. when i boot up my computer it either goes blank and gets really loud, or goes into/or through bios then goes blank and gets really loud. Ive tried taking the battery out and moving the jumper to clear bios and then get to maintenance (this has sometimes worked). Now when i try it, it makes no difference. also it stopped picking up my hard drives but i manged to get it to pick up 1 of the 2. please help.
