Having problems with your Everex StepNote NC1500 Notebook ?

Laptop turns on but doesn't not boot up properly

\015 Whenever I turn on my laptop, it appears to turn on with the fans running and the display lights on, nothing is shown on the monitor. It will boot up again if I leave it on for about 35 minutes, turn it off, and then turn it back on again. I will get and error message that will prompt me to press F2 to continue, which I do, then I turn the laptop off and on again one more time. At first my laptop would do this infrequently, but now it does this about 98% of the time. It's annoying and inconvenient when I need to have my laptop on right away. Thank you for your help.\015

Sounds like the Hard Drive is toast!
My daughter's Dell just had the same problem after six years of faltless service. The new hard drive cost $92 Canadian and is 132 Gigabytes (old one was only 30 gigabytes) Easy to change on the Dell.
