I have recently been given a laptop, Compaq pretty basic but should suffice.
I have had difficulty in getting the computer to start up, basically to begin with it would not start up without the mains plugged in even thought the power management showed 90% battery life etc.
The problem has manifested itself to a point where it won't start up at all now not even in safe mode, it says that this following file is missing
is either missing or corrupt.
I have tried to reinstall and boot from CD, CD is one for my E-Machines desktop but it won't load and have been told that is due to it being specific to the desktop.
Can't restore even though it gives me the option, basically can't do anything other than enter BIOS.
Really quite frustrated now and a couple of friends have used the forum and suggested to ask you guys for some much needed assistance.
Don't have too muchinfo on the laptop other than it is a Compaq EVO N600C and it won't start!!
Any help would be really appreciated as I need to get this laptop up and running for work purposes!!
Thanks in advance for any help and advise.
