Question about PC Desktops
Although I can't find the exact release date of the 700, I can make an educated guess based on the specs. I would say around 2001 to 2002. If this is correct, it sounds like the hard drive may have gone bad, as this happens to all hard drives at around this age. Hard drives are basically just pieces of metal that have been magnetized. And just like magnets, they will lose the magnetism, and, when it comes to computers, the ability to boot. You can still save the data if you need to, but the service to recover from a drive like that runs around $2000-$3500. My recommendation is to buy a new, better hard drive, and reload xp.
The hard drive is a basic IDE notebook drive, and can be replaced with something similar for almost nothing.
