|Ran advanced e-diagtools on my HP Pavilion ze4100 laptop and everything checked out ok. I have Windows XP os. Everything original except that I installed 1 gig of RAM a while ago. |
Problem is that it won't boot in safe mode, last working config, or normal. I get the Windows logo as if it were going to boot and then I get a sudden blue screen that appears for only a fraction of a second (can't even read what it says because it flashes so quickly). Then it tries to restart all over again with same results.
I called a local tech company and they said it was definitely a hard drive problem. They charge me $80/hr. + $100 for the HD. I am not 100% convinced about that option. I want to save my files and do not want to spend that much. Any suggestions?
Thank you very much in advance.
