Hey I was just handed a laptop running XP (sp2 I think). I was told it had a bad hard drive. I got it to boot once but it took a few times and I have tried again but can't get it to boot. Thing is I don't see a splash screen and it doesn't look to me like it is even trying to run post which makes me think it can't be the hard drive. No beep errors or anything just sits there. I have tried a few times to get into set up to see if I can run a fresh install from a CD but I can't seem to get into set up either. I don't want to spend the money on a new drive if that isn't what is wrong. Any ideas?
