Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop cant boot when i try putting it on an error "hard disk boot sector invalid" comes on. please help thank you
Try booting up your XP cd and enter R at the first option screen. Type chkdsk when you get the dos prompt. This will check to see if the drive is crashed.

If you're running Windows XP, put your Windows XP (or recovery) disc in, load Windows Setup, then press R for Recovery in setup. You'll be asked eventually which installation of Windows you want to use, it's usually 1. It'll ask for an admin password, if you haven't set one, hit enter. Then type "fixmbr" and confirm the action. Restart, then that should sort your problem.
