    sorry forgot to say its a Toshiba Satellite laptop with WIndows 7 & Vista hp
  2. Can you boot into safe mode or will it not let you get that far?
  3. No it wont let me do anything im in big trouble
  4. Well, how hard was it slammed? If it was real hard, it could be a number of things: inverter, a wire was knocked loose or two, the graphics card was damaged, or even the LCD was damaged.
  5. Not too hard, i have green lights on but hd/udd light blinks green, i can hear it trying to do things, im lost now..
  6. I have just started getting the mesage a disc read error press ctrl alt & del to restart but i keep getting same message

    Well that's either the drive is bad or the connection between the drive and system is loose/bad. This can be fixed hopefully by just removing and reseating the drive. If drive is already in solid then either it's the connector is bad or the drive is toast.
Ask a new question
