Starting from Scratch
I am helping a friend with their laptop. The Hard drive when ka-put. So now we have a new hard drive installed.
Here is were it gets tricky - She doesnt have her boot disc and i'm trying to help her (very old lady) so she can get back to socializing with her friends. i have the windows XP Professional code, so thats not a problem. when i turn the computer on it powers up but NOTHING happens. and i do mean nothing. The screen stays black and not even a promt sign shows up. can anyone sugest how/where to down load a boot disc to help get me started? or if there is something i'm missing here? Thank you very much a head of time.
PS - its a Gateway M520 Model Number: M520X-3400307
ok so i put the original ram back in and now its booting. i think i have found an .exe file for winxppro hopefully something will work here.
