Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a HP laptop and it's trying to boot using the 'Attempting to Boot Network' status. I went into the BIOS and my HD is set first. Reboot, same status message. I went into the BIOS again, disabled the network device, this time, the cursor is flashing rapidly in the far left corner of my monitor as the HD indicator light is blinking rapidly. Not sure how to solve this issue. Thanks.


Answers :

Sounds like the laptop is not detecting the hard drive. Remove the hard drive ad plug it back in again. It usually solves that problem UNLESS the hard drive has crashed and cannot be picked up again.

Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
