I've just had a text message from a friend who works out of the country - his Dell Studio XPS has died and the following message is displayed on a blue screen - does anyone have any idea about what could be the problem?

May be a dead Hard Drive. Look for a Plate on bottom of Laptop, there should be one for Ram other for Hard Drive. Remove the Drive the Press Start button to see if it boots to BIOS or get something on Screen

Thanks woodchip, I have passed that on to my friend by yext message, might take some time for a reply though as he is working in Asia at the moment.
