Hi,
its possible that the hard drive has partially disconnected.
Turn of your laptop, the remove the small plastic cover over the hard drive area. Remove the screws that mount the drive, remove the hard rrive and re-install in reverse. (searh Compa website for info, or consult your user manual)
Try to reboot your laptop.
If this doesn't work it can be one of 2 things:
a. a virus
b. a corrupted boot sector (or Master Boot Record aka the MBR)
Find a friendly computer geek friend..they will sort it out for you.
Feel free to add more info to here and I will give you some more advice.
Cheers,
Steve

Hi yes try this, if no joy come back to me.
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing ESC button, or delete in some machines. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.

I am running vista. About every 4 - 5 time I launch Quicken 2008 it lock up my PC and has to be rebooted. This all started about 1 month ago. Before that everything worked fine.


Hi,

Very easy problem to fix. Reboot your computer when it's in the boot up stage just keep hitting the F8 Key. This will bring up the repair menu with a list of options. The hard drive in the Vista operating system is partitioned. This replaced your operating system disk from all previous operating systems as it is in a safe section of the hard drive out of the reach of viruses. You access it by hiting the F8 key during boot up. Start at the first option and work your way down until the problem is solved. Should take all of about 2 minutes.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Try turning off the system and unplugging the control. Wait 30 seconds, reattach the control and turn on the system and test if it's working.

If not, you probably need a new controller.
