i bought a laptop off ebay and no probs for about 3 months, except two new batteries which both fail to charge. the problem that occured out of the blue is when i turned the laptop on one day and the following message came up

'PRIMARY MASTER HDD ERROR

RESUME
PRESS F1'

upon pressing f1 the following message comes up

'suspend to disk partition.....RUN HDPREPEZ'

i have no ideas what this means.

also the laptop fails to turn on sometimes, which after this problem occured happened quite frequently

your help would be gladly appreciated

thanks

Its caused by an invalid Hibernation partition/file.I will have a look round the www and see if/how to fix this error.
