    Hi Wendy

    I know a great laptop guy in Modbury North. He's really honest and won't charge you for stuff that doesn't need doing, or do anything without checking with you first.

    I'll PM you his details.

    If the laptop has software issues, I fix them. Hardware I leave to others.

     

    Anything between $30-$50 I charge.

    It sounds like your hard drive is failing or failed.

     

    Does it click when you turn it on?

    Hi

    your HDD probably failed, You have to check in your lap top BIOS settings, Boot options is it available or not, If it is not than it is failed, and you have to replace it with new one in order your lap top to be functional again

    Or you can find someone to fix it for you

    I hope I am helpfull

    I think its not that serious, Broadcom is your network card, it looks like it is trying to boot from that, go into your BIOS and check the boot order as the earlier post suggested.

     

    If you don't understand about BIOS let me know.

     

    It 'could' be that your HDD has failed and then it is trying to boot from something else, but don't panic.
