I have a xp pro system (used) that worked for a few months. When I attempted to boot the system today, the bios booted up and memory, then there was a blinking cursor on the left of the monitor.
When I opened the computer to check the hard drive, the drive was not secured in the system - all plugs and power where in but the drive itself was half hanging against a metal casing inside of the system. Could this be the reason the system does not boot? and is the drive ruined?
