My laptop is running windows xp. It works like charm until recently, i had accidently opened the boot setting (f10) when the laptop was about to start up. And for some reason i accidently select the 'restore default setting' or something along the lines and confirmed it. Ever since that mistake, my laptop just refuse to start up. Its gos like this. Turn on> windows xp loading> bsod > turn on > so on in a merry go round way. I sent my laptop tp technician and he asked me for some bucks to replace the HD. Is there any other way?. Pls help me.

you need to go back into the BIOS and change the SATA Operation to ATA if it seleted AHCI. Or if it selected ATA then you need to change it to AHCI.
