how did you manage it, what steps did you take?
Also, in Setup under advanced did you find the boot order of your computer
Did you set to CD first than harddrive afterwards?
EDIT>>Remember, after making changes in the bios, you will have to hit a key such as F10 and select yes to save changes
I actually used RepairPST and although I had to purchase it, it was definitely worth it. I had tried all other options and nothing else had worked. Now at least I have my pst file back and running.
I did set the cd first in the order, and saved the changes. It still came back with the same error message. I ended up taking it in for a diagnostic, and they said the hard disk was fried (as you mentioned earlier back) and so was the optical drive. Luckily, I have the extended warranty and it was worth every penny!
Thanks a lot for all your help. Hopefully after starting over new I won't be visiting this forum any time soon. Best wishes to you for all your graciousness & patience.
