Dell Latitude C600 laptop will not boot

  1. I have a Dell Latitude C600 laptop that will not boot. I installed Windows XP
    and it worked fine for a few days. All of a sudden the comp would not
    boot…telling me no bootable devices found. It would boot randomly when it
    wanted to. I used XP recovery console to boot the comp. I removed SP 2 and it
    would boot, but functions were limited…for example….I couldn't copy files
    that I saved to disk. I formatted c drive and reinstalled XP and it worked fine
    for 2 days…back to square one. When I was reinstalling, it said that the
    files were corrupted and that it repaired the hard disk. Any ideas? Bad hard

    sounds like it is failing. Make sure the drive's connections are good
    though. It's worth checking before you have a new drive put into it.
