Hello,

my computer suddenly does not boot. when i turned it on, i had a black screen with the message "strike f1 to boot." when i strike f1, it makes a beep sound and ask me to strike f1 again.

after i tried again and again with failure, i tried to reinstall the xp, then it said that hard drive could not be found.

is this hard drive failure or processor failure or something else?

thanks for any suggestions

This could be a hard drive failure or just a bad connection on the cable from the MB to hard drive.

Good Luck
