Question about AOpen 1555G Centrino Notebook, 15" LCD (AN555CE) PC Notebook
Ahad a bad dll file in Windows and had to run System Restore Disk for Aopen 1555.
Result is the computer won't start. Can't even get into Bios file as screen won't light. Hard drive light is on and the hard drive is making a small amount of repetative clicking noise noise. I suspect one of 2 things:
1) the hard drive has failed
2) the Restore Disk was re-installing something in the the bios and failed to do it properly which left a damaged bios.
Can anyone tell me whether one should be able to get into the bios without the hard drive being plugged in ? Any other suggestion would be welcome.
U have to be able to enter BIOS, without the drive (does not matter if it's missing or damaged !!! ). Try pressing the button to enter bios, from the moment u turn the computer on (even if the display aint led yet)
From my knoledge System Restore Disk's don't interfere with the BIOS !
If u're drive is making that noise for a few seconds - minutes, most probably it has faild !
U can try to boot up u're laptop with a "live cd" linux version and see if u can acces the drive .... if u can than reinstal u're OS.
