Computer Photos by Tara_Evert | Photobucket
I know the basics of computers and could build one if I had the resources, my problem is that I can't tell if it is a firmware issue, since Windows isn't even showing up outside the boot disks; or an issue with the hardware, as TVeblen pointed out.
I'm going to try the reset as soon as I know what jumpers need to be switched or placed. If that doesn't work, I'll have to get a new hdd. Right?
The pictures in the link are my computer's hardware, and of what I have spotted of the issues in the system.
It isn't recognizing something and I'm not sure what it is missing. It looks like the driver data for hdd but if that is the case, I don't know where to put the information when I get it.
And before you ask, I'm on my friend's laptop.
