It started when windows has been slow to boot up recently. Tonight I went away for a couple hours and came back to find my computer frozen. So I restart the computer and it gets to the bios screen and won't do anything. Keyboard won't respond or anything.
So I replace the bios battery and when I press the key for settings or boot menu it just says loading boot menu.....
it will sit there for hours.
How can I fix this? Is this computer toast?

So with the HD plugged in your PC hangs and without the HD plugged in you can boot into the bios? Is this correct? If yes, then it's a good bet that your HD is bad.

Yes that is correct. I know if I have to buy a new hard drive, I am buying a western digital not another seagate. But I would like to have it work until at least monday when I can buy a new hard drive plus allow me to backup my files.
