Oh dear, I thought as much. No I don't have recovery discs for my computer. I did back up all my files before this happened. They are on a cloud and I also wrote down the failure ID if that is any use. So what's the best and quickest way to resolve my hardware failure as I have took this week of work to spend time on my music, which I do' through my laptop. Why is nothing every straight forwarwad in things that I do. Can you show me what I need to do and the sooner the better jess. Cheers
Thanks Jess. I sort of already had guessed that those would be the 2 options open to me.I was just hoping that maybe there was another way, that would be quick and hopefully I could of been up and runningoing again in the morning.. so Jess what do estimate having this work done will cost me as I checked with HP and yes my warranty is now out of date. I don' a lot of music on my computer, recording, mixing ect. Do you know if I was to inveinvest in a new laptop, are there ones out there that would work well with my music mixing and recording. That's my last reply I hope you can answer it and again thank you although you could not resolve the problems on my lap top you were able to point me in the right direction. G think maybe the hard drive could no handle of mixing, playing, recording for many hours at a time. any idea on a good quality laptop reasonably priced that would be able to and maybe better suited to what I need.
