Because I am really dumb with computers I have to ask all you intelligent computer people
I have the HP Mini 110 netbook but the hard-drive has apparently died.
I have been trying to boot it up for the last 4 months but getting nowhere.
When I try, it says:
< F9 > = Change Boot Device Order
< F10> = Bios Setup Options
If I click on anything or even just leave it alone eventually the screen changes to say:
Reboot and select proper Boot Device
or insert Boot Media in selected Boot Device and press a key.
Sometimes it also allows me to open the blue page with settings in it, andwhen I go in to Change the Boot Order it says I have no Hard Drive. In fact there is nothing in the list.
I have searched all over the internet and discovered thousands of people have had the same problem and all have received the same answer:
Check the HHD has good connection
(I have about 50 times), failing this the Hard Drive is dead. Replace it.
That's it! That's all the help thousands of people have been given from hundreds of sites
My questions are:
1. If I buy a new Hard Drive for it do I lose everything I have on the old Hard Drive? (Programs like Photoshop, ImagesPlus, etc etc and all my files and photos)
2. Is it possible that the old Hard Drive can be fixed?
Thank you all.
Also, if all else fails, where can I buy a Hard Drive for it? and what Hard Drive do I buy?
