But last week I started having problems when Friday night it would not boot except to a Black Screen with a White Cursor - right out of POST.
It appeared the HD was dead, because it has been a little flakey anyway - so I bought a new one.
When I had the newone installed and re-imaged it seemed ok until the next morning. Overnight I had left it in standby mode - nothing new here.
When I got up in the morning and turned it on the Video was not re-sizing to match the laptop screen like it normally does.
So I tried to manually adjust it - then it froze and the screen went White -
I couldn't get out of that and the HD was running.
Finally I was able to put it back into a Standby mode - it seemed fine still.
Then I re-booted. The OS didn't come back and system failed to book comming out of the POST.
I then pulled out my UBCD to find that both drives were working.
I did the following:
1) Chkdsk / r
6) still working on it.
Any clues would be great! I need to get this thing back on line so I can get back to work.
