Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario 2100US Notebook ?

I can't log onto my laptop

\015 When i turn on my laptop all i get is media test failure, check cable. It also says it don't recognize operating system. what can i do to fix it\015

Answers :

The error message means that system cannot see your hard drive and therefore can't recognize the operating system.
\015\012The fix can be simply just re-seating the hard drive or a more serious problem - a faulty hard drive or worse still a faulty disk controller.
\015\012You can remove the hard drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as an external hard disk if hard drive is OK and you will be able to view the contents of this drive. (And this means you have a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.)
\015\012If you cannot see the hard drive then it is faulty and you can purchase a new hard drive and install it in the laptop and install Windows on this hard drive to get the laptop operational again.
