|Ok, I had to replace the HDD in my laptop. I installed the new drive and was unable to locate my copy of XP so being impatient, decided to try and load WIN98 (I have since located my copy of XP). Everything was working fine during the install, till the laptop rebooted. I wasn't paying attention when it said don't touch anything while it reboots. When the option to boot from the HD or the disk option was given I hit the boot from disk button (I think, it was a few days ago and I am a little foggy). It froze up and I ended up turning off the power. Now when I turn it on the power light comes on and I can hear the cd-rom drive spin, then nothing. The monitor never comes on at all. I have tried restarting it with a DOS boot disk on 3.5 and cd to no avail. |
If anyone can tell me how badly I screwed up, and how I might be able to fix this I would be very greatful.
