Description of the problem :
Computer had tendency to overheat and often crashed. I used Ccleaner and it gave him a new youth, the computer worked perfectly during 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, it started crashing a lot again, i used Ccleaner again and AVG antivirus and it didnt change anything.
One day computer just stopped booting, when i turn it on i just get a
"Operating System not Found" on a black screen.
Analysis and treatments done
-Went into setup and tried a Harddrive test and the computer doesnt detect any. It says "No IDE device".
-Saw a solution on internet stating that one or two small hits on the computer could solve that problem. I tried...5 times and it failed.
-No other solution tested, i'm planning on trying to burn a Ultimate Boot CD, is it what you would suggest me to do ?
The computer is a HP Pavilion dv 6700 with a AMD Turion64 x2 2gHz, 3g of DDR2 (i think) RAM, running on windows vista and i don't remember about the rest and can't check since it won't boot
I would like to know if anyone can help me and if you think there is a chance i can save the data that is on my harddrive (i care more about the data than the laptop itself).
Thanks in advance!
