daughters laptop (advent modena m200) wont fully boot in any mode. has windows 7 OS.
in normal or repair mode it gets to the wallpaper and sits there doing nothing at all, no activity from the harddrive.
in safe mode I get the usual dos boot list then freezes on that list.
booting from norton disc gets us a yellow wallpaper then no further.
Is this the hard-disk do we think or something else?
and how do I resolve it.
ta in advance
