gives black screen with function options like sart up messages, recovery, repair, net BIOS, boot order, etc. None of which work. Compaq presario CQ60 on the bottom there' a small rectangular panel next to the battery that contains the wi-fi card I presume. It has 2 wires with connectors when I opened it one was off. I don't know if it was supposed to be or not.
Power will not turn off unless I remove battery and unplug the laptop. I'm stumped. It was lightly dropped (caught with feet).I don't think the hard drive is damaged. I have a USB 2.0 SATA/IDE Combo drive adapter. when I hooked it to my desk top it started (autoplay) to act like it was downloading files or configuring itself to my desktop. It won't let me explore. It won't let me reinstall vista. Someone please help. I've tried a few ISO's (the windows vista disk, PHLAK, and I think PCTools 10 in 1 maybe? I did manage to get into the boot order and change it to the dvd now none of the keys on the keyboard work. When I put a dvd in the player it starts you can hear it moving quickly then after a few sec's it slows down and...nothing.
I would appreciate any suggestions as to what the problem might be if anyone else is having the same issue.
I've read similar problems in forums but none quite like this. Would pulling out the SATA hooking to the combo drive adapter and going through the USB port be an option? I'm completely stumped.
Anyway, thanks in advance.
