My roommate's laptop stated:
Primary hard disk drive 0 not found
No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility
This problem was so immediate, we don't know what happened.
It sounds as if the hard drive may be crashing but I have a rare circumstance.
One of my roommates is an ex-military intelligence officer. He is divorced, alone, and a severe alchoholic. We told him today that if he doesn't get better (he can't control himself when he's drunk) that he will have 30 days to get better or he'll have to move back in with his parents. When he gets mad he takes it out on the other people in the house, like a drunk form of revenge.
What I am wondering is can a person with that knowledge crash someone's computer? Can a person totally distroy it because he had the opportunity, knowledge, and motive to do so? Or did it just crash because it's a crappy Dell? Please let me know if it is possible either way.
Please and thank you,
