What does the 0x00000F have to do with anything? You just can't get a screen? How did he shatter it? He may have damaged the graphic card.

I would take out his hdd and plug it into your desktop as a secondary and get the data off.

That I did and when I tried to boot from it is when I got the error message saying it was missing a file...I only have 1 set of sata leads therefore I can look at his hdd or run my disc player...otherwise I would have already run repair...
