Maybe yall can help. I have an older lap top think heck I dont even recall what kind was given to me a few years back when a family member got a new 1. The only thing I use it for is to open up the PCIII on my bike and make small changes to my MAP. BUt my kids triped over the cord and unpluged it and it lost power(battery dosnt work) and now it wont sart up brings up the reboot screen then goes to the windows XP loading screen then right back to the to reboot. Told it prob fried the hard drive if that is the case its trash cause it anit worth a new hard drive but I woould hate to have to buy a new laptop just to open and save fuel maps. Is there any way to tell if it is the hard drive fried or any other way to try to get it to start up?
