We got a Dell Inspiron 1200, it's pretty old. Anyway when we turn it on, we see the dell logo and also the F12 F2 commands. I've tried safe mode, debugging mode etc but it just fails to load the operating system. The Windows logo doesn't come up and it seems that the laptop just freezes. I ran a diagnostics test which said "fail" and it played some warning sounds or something. I also tried removing the HDD and putting it back in again, but the same thing happens - the OS just wont boot.
Anyone got any ideas how to tell what's wrong? If it's just the HDD it'd save me some money.
Thanks for any help.
