Well guys, long story short.
Very old laptop, Toshiba Satellite 2400 with intel pentium4 with XP Pro. About 4 years ago i gave it to my brother when it was working just fine apart frpm the CD/DVD drive which had given up but i gave it to him as he was startin Uni and wanted a laptop to work. So being the big brother i gave him mine. Now he finished uni, got himself a new vaio last year, so i got the toshiba off him. And here the trouble starts. First off the screen is gone, i mean it looks like someone has stepped on it and it is cracked from inside, u could see the cracks but cant feel em on touching it. I have successfully tried to open the screen which was without disaster, now i could just go ahead and change the screen but there is another issue....it says something on the lines of disk error which i am unable to see as the screen is broken at that exact bit. Joy..isnt it, now i culd go ahead and do a repair install on this machine but did i mention that the disk drive is gone as well. so any help is most welcome. this is going to be my project for mow. also another request is if anyone has any idea where i can find cheap screen or may be they have one lying around which they are willing to donate;-p or give it to me for a reasonable price....I have all faith in you guys advice and might I add any donations are welcome.
Thanks for looking and any help guys.
