Well, lets just say my Internal hard drive is trashed... If I put XP on my external drive and boot from that, I should be able to just run off that until I can figure out if C: is repairable right?
Lets just say that the problem was caused by a virus... If I take out the C: Drive, is the Virus anywhere else on the computer? Do viruses attach themselves to any other part of the computer like memory or anything?
Hi, right after upgrading to Spyware Doctor 5.0, my computer said to shut down for it to take effect... Now it wont come back up... It powers up, (black screen), and makes scratching noises and just sits there.. This is what I have tried....
Windows XP SP1 disk (one that came with computer)... Just sits there with black screen scratching at me
SP2 disk... Error message "No operating system found"
System restore disk from Compaq... Once I click restore factory image, it goes to an hourglass, then ejects the disk and restarts...
Now it's beeping at me frequently... No parts have ever been switched on this laptop
Compaq presario 2100 laptop, was on XPSP2, IE7
Anyway to get it to do anything??? The safe mode pretends to load, then goes blank... Anyway to do a scan on the hard disk from where Im at?
