Wed. morning computer booted normally, but still had same clicking noise. I thought it was the CD drive, it wasn't
Next I got the Blue sceen of death, the computer rebooted and I got the same screen.
After the blue screen it went black and I got this message "operating system not found"
Is my hard drive dead?
My husband has the same computer, can I put my hard drive in his laptop to get any data?
I also did some searching around and saw some suggestions to try the recovery consol on the start-up CD
What should I do next to troubleshoot the problem and fix it?
Or is playing around with a hard drive better left to a professional? What about the help desk at Best Buy?
Also, I am I better off with a new computer (mine is from Aug 2002) or a new hard drive?
If I put a new hard drive in if there is an electrical problem it will just fry it? right?
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR HELP
ps I have a lot of baby pictures of my son born just a year ago that I would like to keep!
