Question about Compaq Presario 1275 Notebook
Hi Myde, Without any other information this sounds like a hard drive failure. If it is you may want to try shutting down and restarting. It may take a few tries but if you hard drive is just in the beginning of a failure you may luck out and get it started. If you do immediately save you data to CD or USB drive. The easiest way to try to recover is to use Compaq?s recovery routine making sure you select the option that just replaces/repairs the original files. You do NOT want to select the menu option that formats (wipes) your hard drive. Depending on how comfortable you are with the technical aspect of computers you may want to consider taking the machine to a service shop. They have the experience to be able to save your data (just in case) plus can make the determination if your hard drive is shot. Let us know if you have any other questions of if you want to try to do it yourself. As always please don?t forget to rate the posting.
