Can't do a restore on it you can't get that far when you start it up you just get a black screen with a thing at the top saying it needs drive installed or something like that you push the ESC button a few times and it looks like a diagnostic thing where you choose what to want it to test when you try and test stuff it says it has no memory bloody things got dementia
I think I've tried that to is that the bois or BIOS thing nothing seems to work on that thing as well
I was going to try a hard drive pb has new one that has been removed from a computer for 40$
Good to know havnt really played with this kind of stuff before I'll probably take the old one in to them so I get the right one
Sounds like a good plan.
If you get stuck feel free to pm me or @ my name on here.im no IT pro but learnt this sort of thing out of necessity.
I hate fixing computers but enjoying helping people, especially when they are willing to give it a go themselves.
Ok thank you I was told to download Windows onto a rebootable USB if that makes any sense haven't got that far yet tho
Does the laptop have a cd/DVD drive? If so, find a Windows 7 DVD. Making a bootable USB stick is a whole other level of fucking around, plus you'll probably need to edit your boot settings in bios to allow booting from USB.
There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
I think its got a DVD player I've never used this lap top so not sure just don't want to throw it out
