    hi all, i think my laptop drive has gone down.
    i have tried to chkdsk it connected to my normal pc using a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor.
    but it wont check it.
    so im looking for something i can put in there and see if i can do an windows install to make sure it was just the hard drive and not something else.

    even if there is another member that has a spare one laying about, but doesnt want to sell it.
    if i could borrow it to try, and if it turns out to be the hdd then i dont mind buying a new one.
    cheers

    You could download Ubuntu and boot it from a live CD / USB and see if your laptop boots that. You can do hdd / ram tests etc from there too.
