my laptop was working great for a long time, untill i shut it down to take it on a trip (i had it on but in standby like most laptops do for a couple of months prior). it does not boot up anymore, i am greeted with the non-system disk error you get when you have a floppy disk in when you startup, the first time i got this there was in fact a floppy in the drive, please remove and press anykey. upon completing this action, the stupid thing gets cheeky and says something along the lines of system disk error please replace and press the anykey, so i put the disk back in and get the later messege in a nasty little circle of frustration. i have had this bug or glitch if you will on my PC twice now, but the difference being that i have a recovery disk for that and not for my laptop. is there anything i can do to bypass this? or should i start looking for a new hardrive?
