This is a weird one...we have a HP/Compaq laptop and all of a sudden its not booting up. The problem is, it powers up and makes the noise as if testing the DVD drive, but it will keep doing this forever, with nothing on the screen.
Once it suddenly sprang into life after leaving it like this for about 3 hours, and then we could use it as normal. Today I tried it again and its done nothing for 6 hours, now I know windows take a while to boot sometime but this is ridiculous
Does anyone have any idea what we can do? I am considering a new DVD drive to see if that solves it.
