Hey, first post!
I'm trying to fix a vaio laptop at the moment and am a bit stuck
The screen doesn't go past the vaio. It just before the windows logo would normally appear. I tried using the windows 7 cd to try a repair or cmd/chkdsk etc, but the OS wasn't found/listed. I also tried to do a clean install and the HD wasn't detected by windows 7 setup. I also tried booting up with ubuntu and the HD still wasn't detected.
Can I assume this is a busted HD?
Should I still shoot for a bootage diagnostic cd for the hard drive?
