G 70 120 EA, Run-in test...

I went and did a run-in test and it had came back with "Hard Disk 1 QUICK" (303)

 

Also said the start-up test failed.

 

Now I`ve never had any problems with it I was just doing the scans just to see how it would do.

 

Now its just on a black screen, on start-up the command prompt is there in the top left hand corner for a second and then nothing, just a black screen and the fan is going a fair bit.

 

I cant do anything cause nothing or any options come up to cancel or bypass to windows.

 

Anyone have any idea what I can do, to get back into windows??

Hi, since the hardware test failed, you will need to replace the hard drive.

Are you are still under warranty?

 

Did you create a restore CD set?

Yes its under warranty, I ended up bringing it into PC World, as for the restore CD I might have but I`ve no idea where it is...
