Hi, I have a Compaq laptop CQ57-229WM that will freeze up on occasion. It has not go a lot of use since I bought it and I would like to use it more often with out it freezing up.
Most of the time it won't start up and get's stuck on the red Compaq screen with the q and won't budge. After holding the power button and resetting it a few times it finally stays on for a bit and I can use it until it freezes again.
A couple of times I got to the diagnostic screen and checked the hard drive and didn't find one installed, weird. A different time the message said there was no bootable device or something like that.
Is it time for a new hard drive?
Thanks in advance.
