"It will not boot, when you turn the laptop on , it just goes to savemode"

Do you mean it goes to "Safe Mode"? If yes, well the laptop has to boot to do that, so that part of your post does not make much sense.

Try doing a Factory Recovery.

sounds like your hard drive may be dying or your AC adaptor isn't putting out enough power. You may have to take it in to a shop to have the problem assessed, I WOULD NOT suggest taking it to Best Buy Geek squad...they are the worst. Try to find a local person with a good reputation that will not rip you off...

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:
http://www.computing.net/windows95/...

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.

E.g.
Seagate's Seatools will test (almost) any brand of hard drive.
Do the long test.

The bootable Dos versions of SeaTools can be used even if Windows is not working properly.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.

Another screw on the bottom of the case may be identical - try borrowing a screw from somewhere else. They usually are screws that require a tiny Phillips head (cross) screwdriver tip or bit. Most people don't have that size handy, but if you have a set of tiny screwdrivers with a straight tip, you can often get them out without damaging the head with one of those. If you have niether, local "dollar" stores or other stores that have tools often have cheap sets of "jeweler's " screwdrivers that may have both the ones with straight tips and the tiny Phillips tip ones

In any case, make sure you press downwards at first to prevent damaging the cross in the head while trying to get the screw to start turning - that's easy to damage otherwise. DO NOT try using anything that will not go into the recessed cross well.
