Laptop Failure? HELP!
Ok, I have a Dell Latitude D600.
Here's the problem, one day I was having a freeze up problem with my computer, I turned it off expecting to turn back on and all is well in the world of technology.......wrong.
I get this message after the screen comes up saying Dell with the screen loading and what not. Then after it loads a message comes up saying "Invalid configuration information- please run SETUP program, Primary hard disk drive 0 not found, Time-of-day not set- please run SETUP program. Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility."
here's another, I press either F1 or F2 and nothing happens.... at least during the loading screen, but after the message comes up I press F2 and setup appears.
A friend who is good with computers told me the hard drive failed as the arm inside makes a clicking noise.
I wonder if this is true?
Any help would be appreciated, this is a nice laptop and in good condition. I hope it's repairable?
