I think the answer is to buy another laptop. But why not a new hard drive? These are far cheaper than a new laptop. Is there some reason we want to save this drive?
When booting my sons laptop I receive an error that the laptop cant read the HD. I tried to boot from a CD and it will only read the CD-ROM every now and then. Once im able to boot from the CD I tried to FDISK and reinstal and it keeps telling me that it can find the HD. What can I do besides go and buy another HD?
