A friend of mine has a notebook, when she turns it on all she gets is a blinking courser, any ideas? Sorry that is all the info she emailed. Any suggestions would be great to pass on. Win XP Home

Yah, not a lot to go on, she's not home right now, but if it's only a blinking courser, not much else going on:huh:

She would love to hear that. After about 20 reboots it finally booted. Time to get that extended warranty!

make sure that IDE 0 is set in the BIOS to first boot device that would cause a big delay in boot time

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
