You can either burn recovery CDs using software generally supplied by the manufacturer and boot from them or it can be activated by a keypress when booting (usually F12) or many manufacturers also supply a recovery program that can be run right from your desktop that will take the necessary steps to use the installation data stored on the hard drive.

Hello
seems like your hardrive is broken. one thing you can check is to remove the harddisk and check the IDE connectors and put it back it can be something loose. the other thing is to remove the plastic under the laptop so you see the HD and feel if the HD make any noice or vibrations when you start the computer.

HI aoi,

There is no clear indication that a hard drive is about to fail, but there may be several warning signs that trouble is on the horizon. Excessive drive noise (such as loud clatters or whirring noises) can be one common warning sign. Other warning signs may include unusual read/write errors to the drive, often leading to the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), in which the computer freezes and the screen turns blue.

If the laptop is under warranty, contact the laptop’s manufacturer for service. Some manufacturers may honor the warranty for a marginal drive if the technician agrees that the system is unusable or a total failure is imminent, but other manufacturers may not agree to replace the drive until it actually fails. If the laptop is not under warranty, contact your nearest full-service PC repair center such as CompUSA or Best Buy. They may be able to arrange a depot repair, though the task may take several weeks and cost you a fee. Always get a price and time estimate in writing before giving permission for a repair job. Remember to back up your data before dropping the laptop off for service
