Tecra m8 boot up problem

\015 When I turn on the laptop the on light comes on but the forth light (HDD) does not come and the sceen does not light up. If I shut it down using the ON/OFF switch (held for 8-10 seconds) and try it again, sometimes it will start up and everything will be working. It can take several attempts.\015

Answers :

The true test here is, can it boot into the BIOS every time. If it can, then I suspect your getting ready to have a hard drive failure. Intermittent boot failures and non-start-ups are usually caused by a faulty hard drive. If it was your boot menu or boot loader, then it would never boot period. I would suspect the hard drive overheated and is damaged, or there are damaged sectors on the drive that contain some of your windows files.
