My friend's got a Sony Vaio PCG-FR315S - 2.66 Ghz Pentium 4, 512Mb RAM, 60Gb HDD, running XP (not sure whether its Pro or Home edition).
4 weeks ago, he installed a wireless network card and it's been working OK since. It was working OK last week on holiday, but now it's not!
4 days ago, he started it up, and it went into Safe Mode with a message "can't load Windows". A restart resulted in a black screen. He inserted his Recovery Disk and was able to run it, but after 15 mins it stopped (the book said it could take upto 60 minutes). A restart again resulted in a black screen. Now it won't do anything - it just beeps when you switch it on (1-4-1-1 pattern). He's asked me to try and fix it - but Ineed your help please!
I've tried booting from an XP boot disk floppy, and from an XP Pro CD, but just with no joy. Any suggestions?
