My System Specs

Default

Thanks for the help guys.

I'll let the owner know this thing is toast.

I'm now wondering if there was a short or something. When I first got this home I took out the drive, plugged it in my computer and made a backup of it, everything seemed fine. Now the drive has those "beeps" - yes the drive itself is beeping - and plugged it in into my computer now and it says drive error when booting. It's weird that it worked at first, but now after me trying to fix things the drive doesn't work at all. So a short or overheating has fried more than just the motherboard I'd say.

I don't even think its worth a new motherboard, I'll just suggest they get a new laptop.
