I have a compaq presario with vista basic that won't load. When starting it dosen't find the boot record and asks for a boot record. I have tried recovery with no luck. I have dismounted the c: drive and ran virus scan and chkdsk from another computer and nothing found. This started with the desktop not turning on. I thought I had a bad power supply, but after resetting cmos by removing the battery and then reseating the memory stick the power returned.
One other symptom after running chkdsk I tried to change the drive with the cd command and it won't access the drive
Hope you can help
