chkdsk/f from a Recovery Console prompt. Sounds like a corrupted hard drive.
Here is the problem:
My laptop stops at a black screen with a blinking "_" on the upper left corner after the initial POST. I'm able to go into BIOS and change the boot order, however, when I try to boot it using the XP cd, it takes like 15 mins to load. I tried to use the Repair option, but then it hangs after it reboot.
Any suggestions/solutions will be greatly appreciated.
