I have an HP G70-246US laptop and I have been having some problems with it. I had an error message a while back (3 months?) that it could not find the OS when I booted it up. I performed a system restore, and it worked just fine. Then it happened again, and the system restore failed. I ran the hard disk test from the BIOS, and got the following:
I purchased a replacement hard drive (Western Digital Scorpio Blue 250GB), and installed it. The screen popped up and said "Insert boot disk, then press enter." I did as prompted, and the cd/dvd/ drive began to read the disk. All of the sudden, the disk drive stopped working, the computer restarted
, and i just have a blank screen.
What the hell did I do? Any advice, ideas and input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
