The led that indicates that the hard drive is been accessed does not go on and the laptop does not go on. so does it mean that the Hard drive has crashed

Possibly. Remove the hard drive and boot the laptop. You should get a screen telling you there is no bootable device found. If you do, the hdd is possibly faulty.

It sounds like you have a hard drive issue or the windows files are corrupted, if by chance you have a rscovery dics install it now, if no change! remove hardware and reseat back into place, still no result! laptop hard drive should be assessed for possible replacement.

Dropped Fujitsu Lifebook A1110 wont boot past the repair mode screen. The hard drive is connected. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you!

Sound like the hard drive is gone my Friend. Going to have to get it replaced. The best thing I can tell you is get another PC or laptop install Linux maybe Unbuntu or one of those flavors. Use the hard drive retrieval method and moves as much UN-corrupted data as possible...when you do that let me know and I tell you how to take out your hard drive. And replace it ...if you don't know how to do the retrieval please email me at and I tell you step by step. Through email...goodluck

Hi, When I switch my MacBook on, I can see a ? mark appears on the screen and that's all it would not any further than that. Can you advice please?

Hmm, seems it can't find the OS to boot (start up) from.
Possible yr hard drive got disconnected some way? That would cause this...

If you have a boot-able CD/DVD, try starting with that (hold the 'C' key down while starting up, which tells it to boot from the CD/DVD drive).

If that boots OK, you may need to reinstall the Mac OS, (which, vs Windows, will not destroy the world as you know it on yr Mac)
