Dell Vostro- rarely used, purchased only 18 months ago for a volunteer organization
suddenly cannot boot
Fan runs computer screeen starts the XP splash screen but then I get white writing on black screen that no HD is found.
I restart,click on F2, see that the HD is the first boot up option but when I select it,again get written error that HD cannot be found.
Could this be a virus?
A corrupted system ? (someone may have left the computer running for days and any power disruption might have corrupted)
I don't think the HD is dead because the Dell gets to the splash screen and I am getting these messages.
I have read that I could run CHKDISK /R but how do I get to command line?
