Just a blue screen. When i press F8 i get 7 intermittent beeps. Ive tried switching the RAM cards from a working laptop-apparently this was favourite to be the fault-but no diff.

What else could it be ?

Thanx in advance.

At a guess I would say this points to a failed hard drive. I will wait to see what others have to say.
