Hi, I have a NEC 366MHz / 128mb / 6.4 Gb / Laptop computer, with Windows SE. A while ago the laptop had stopped detecting my hard disk... I have no idea why. Im not a technical type of person so i havent a clue y its doing this. The Laptop powers up fine and u can see the power light go on, but a blank screen. The only thing that happens is that instead of the hard drive indicator light coming on, the cd drive light comes on (even though the hard drive flashes for about a second)... ive tried seeking advice to rescue this laptop myself, and have been told that "it seems like its looking for something to boot from" what ever that means. So I gave up there! Any help you can give me would b much appreciated. Many thanks.
Try one more thing first before doing anything more.. Find the memory cover unscrew and look carefully at the sodimms fitted make a note of where (which slot its in ) Ground yourself and remove & replace memory sim. try that to see if you get to boot up ..
