Specs: Windows 7
Hi I purchased a Leader computer at the end of June 2010.
It said I needed do a disc check, whickh I tried to do. It said it would do the disc check unless a pressed any key within one second. That is where the screen stayed. I eventurally force a shut down, it then came up with the same screen, so I pressed a key within the time limit and nothing happened. Can you please advicse Thanking you Trish

What is a Leader computer? Is that the brand? If so, post a model? Is this a laptop or desktop computer? Windows 7 or something else?

Thanks for your reply, it is a bit hard to take it back as I am about a five or six day drive from where I bought it

Did you get any disks with the laptop?

If not, did you burn any restore disks?

Do you have a manual?

Googling for that model yields some hits but they are not by Leader. Do you have personal data on the laptop that you need to recover?

if you can open the HDD cover and check the sort of drive you have you can then download the tools from the drive manufacturers site and check the drive on another machine, or check your drive via the usb or floppy depending what specs.
the tools will allow you to run checks repairs formats etc etc.
you may also be able to do a factory restore of the OS, usually by tapping a F key at boot, however you will to get a linux live cd/usb to load and save your files, you can also use linux live to run checks on your drive.
try giving the head office a call and they may just send you a new HDD.if you dont call and ask you will never know.

If nothing happens then you are not doing something you need to do or the boot order is set wrong.

Even if the hard drive is dead the system should boot to the restore disk. Not knowing the brand I can't tell you exactly what you need to do. I can suggest you watch the start up screens. If the restore disk/s are only restore and not full versions then you need to hit certain keys when your first start the computer with the restore disk inserted.

If the disk is a full version then you may just need to hit any key when prompted to do so on the screen in order to start the CD drive.

Describe everything you see on the screen from the moment you start the computer with the disk inserted.
