My bro has a Compaq Presario laptop and his hard-drives started playin up on him. Whenever he goes to boot it up, it gets so far then asks for the Boot CD . Weve tried usiing the restore points but to no avaiil. Hes not the kind of person to download useless s**t to it as he didnt like me havin MSN Messenger on his desktop. Anyways, his HDD is preloaded with Vista so im just wondering what the best thing to do for him is? Will it work with a new copy of Vista or is his HDD knackered?
Its out of warranty by 6 months. I rang HP yesterday n they want to charge me £15.99 to speak to a techie and then whatever its gonna cost to repair it.
Thanks for any help and i hope the above makes sense to yas :D
