Compaq Presarion Tower SR 1475Cl running xp ... It was fine last night and now will not go past the first screen with the Esc F1/setup F10.sys Rec options - absolutely unresponsive.
I tried the boot disk (I think it is) but that failed... (yes I know I should have had a better label ;-)
I do have full back up but it's a week out ...
Should I buy (where from ?) a new hardrive with Xp pre loaded and then try to make this drive tthe slave ? (not sure how of course)
Or just hit the machine with 2lb hammer ?
Any thoughts MUST appreciated
