I have an old Inspiron 7000 laptop and recently it quit working and refuses to\nboot. At powerup I press F2 and get the PhoenixBIOS setup utility, Under Main tab\nit says Hard disk "None". Floppy disk drive and CD work ok.\nFDISK also reports "No fixed disks present".\n\nIt there anything I can do? Is the HD dead as a doornail? (sniff, sob)\n\nWhat should I do with it?\nGive it a decent burial?\nUse it for target practise?\nUse it for boat anchor?
