My fathers computer has recently crapped out on him, so , as I have the only internet capable machine in the house, its up to me to find a solution.
Firstly when the computer is turned on it boot straight to a black screen that asks me to boot from CD . It also lists the components of the machine by number, function , vendor/device class and IRQ. It also make a beeping sound (similar to the "I can't find my HD" sound i have herd other comps make IE my own)
I have run the check function and the repair function from my windows disk , neither has had any affect. I am wondering , given the symptoms i have offered, is it not possible that the hard drive ( he has only one ) has died ? or at least can not be detected ? any help would greatly be appreciated.
Any questions will be answered very quickly so feel free to ask .
Thank you for your time in advance.
