Hello,

When i turn on laptop, i hear strange sound inside like "tick, tick, tick". Than message appears" reboot or select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key''. I tried to enter bios and change boot order but i see that hdd is empty (p0:      ) and dvd ram, so its not working. Than tried to boot windows from  bootable flash and immediately message appears " The Boot Configuration Data file doesn't contain valid information for an operating system. File: \BCDError code: 0x0000098".

I dont know what to do next.

The ticking sound is typical of a dead or dying hard drive.

You can download SeaTools for DOS, burn it to disc, boot to it and run: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

It says that no hard drives found and no controllers detected. Cant do anything else in that program( i mean all functions are inactive apart of exit).
