Question about Dell Latitude X200 Notebook
I have my Dell Latitude X200 sitting here. It worked fine the other day, but when I tried to boot it up today, I hit the power button, lights flash like normal, and that's it. All I hear is the HD doing a repetitive clicking noise, but there is no screen that comes up at all. No matter how many times I try, docked, undocked, powercord plugged in and unplugged, I get the same result. If it means me HD is dead, do I have to disassemble the entire thing to get at it? Thanks in advance, it really is appreciated.
You have what is called the "click of death". Your hard drive has failed and it's almost impossible to repair the drive to a working condition again. The drive should be located on the underbelly of the laptop. You'll need a small philips head screwdriver to remove the faceplate that holds it in. Once removed you can simply purchase a replacement drive and then reload windows from either the recovery disc that came with the system or regular windows disc.
