Hello. I have tried for 2 weeks to get my Parents computer up and running again. It died several years back, but I cannot for the life of me figure it out. I have tried burning recovery disks that I've downloaded online, along with Driver dvds, tried boot from USB.. At one point it says No hard drive detected.. I cannot install Windows Vista again, as there nothing listed to install it on. How do I get this computer fixed? Please let me know any information that you need.. I have the Windows Upgrade Cd but cannot get anywhere with that either.. I put Ubuntu on a USB drive and boot into that, but because there is no Hard drive detected, I cannot do anything. I even connected the desktop to the internet but cannot get Ubuntu to download and run anything.
Acer Aspire X1200
Running Windows Vista Home Premium
