A friend of mine switched his laptop on this morning and got a message saying,hard drive bad,back up and replace,then another message saying,windows is shutting down to safe guard the pc.
He cant even get into the bios to do anything,any ideas what he should do.Not sure of the make yet until he brings it round later,
Many thanks for any help

Best bet here postie is to place the drive in a caddy or use a usb adaptor and plug in into another pc/laptop...and double check if its the drive thats gone.
