    If you can boot from a 64Gb USB Flash Drive (in the bios) that might save your computer from the trash, if no one else has a fix for your hard drive problem.

    Do you have an external hard drive you could connect to the USB port and try that?
  3. so the problem is the hard drive..?

    It sounds like your hard drive has crashed, run a hard drive test in DOS ...Hirens cd etc...

    All the best Brett :)
