The best thing you can do is take your laptop to a repair shop, it sounds to me like the hard drive was not damaged, it is a little expensive but not as expensive as buying a new laptop. In the mean while you can buy an s-video cable and hook up your computer to your tv they are around $10.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

That happened to me too. Like they said, you're gunna have to take it somewhere and get it fixed, but you can hook it up to another computer screen for now.

Excellent advice!


The other option, depending upon your laptop, if there is a desktop computer in your home, and your la ptop has a VGA connector, you can unplug the blue VGA cable and plug or push into your laptop, you could also use that. If you have a netbook, you're unlikely to have one of these ports on your laptop.

I THINK, its that funny blue connector that connects the screen from your computer to your hard-drive. What the suggestion meant, was that you connect your laptop to you home computer screen. They look like this http://files.sandberg.it/products/im.../501-61_lg.jpg


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

dont forget that you can keep ur old harddrive! u can easily unscrew it from the bottom and take it out... buy an "external harddrive enclosure" like this http://www.newegg.ca/Store/SubCatego...nal-Enclosures

And put it in.

make sure u get the right harddrive size.. a decent harddrive encloures are cheap... and u can get them from computer speciality stores... or newegg for the best prices (no joke) or amazon
