Hi, thanks for having this forum.
My friend has a HP laptop, that boots up sometimes in safe mode, then the screen shows all lines across it then nothing happens. The fan does appear to be running correctly. Also, sometimes, the screen will go blank and freeze at startup. This laptop was bought a year ago. I have not looked at it yet, I am just telling you what he is telling me.
Any ideas from the info given what the devil it could be.He has no clue as to what to do, and i have some ideas, but need to make sure I can get into
safe mode first.
Now barring that, Can I somehow connect my functioning laptop to his, and download the info that he needs from the harddrive, into my own laptop?
I read somewhere about an IDE connector.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
