My wife's laptop started playing up and wouldn't load past the XP logo, it just keeps rebooting. I've tried all the usuals, last config etc. Now it won't even let me boot in safe mode. We got the laptop econd hand with no cd's so cannot perform a repair/recovery. I removed the H/D and installed it in one of my desktops. I can see the H/D but for some reason cannot access it. It shows it as having 27.5 GB free, , but has XP on it so shouldn't show that much. I can find all the files using a boot cd with software on it, so they are still there. Any ideas on how to get it going again in laptop or gaining access via desktop.
