I have a Compaq nx6310 has been a great laptop ... booted through POST and then goes to black screen witha curser in upper right corner. I first removed all ram, then cd drive , network card , and hard drive with no luck. of course when I removed the hard drive I did get the generic error message telling me Hey u have no hard drive ...
I have run the disk dianostics that come with the laptop and I also made a boot cd from Hitachi and both say the drive is fine
Booted with a xp disk
Ran chkdsk /r (would not let me run /f ) ??
did find and reapired a error
Attempted to do fixmbr but got the "not a standard Master boot record error" .. so I backed off it
did fixboot said it had replaced the boot record .. still no progress
Deep down inside I want to sys the drive (I know Im showing my age) but I will let you tell me whats next
Thanks in advance
