I was working on my laptop a few days ago, suddenly it shut itself down. I tried to get it running again, but all I could read was the message "operating system not found" on a black screen along with the sound of what seemed like the the hard disk running in circles, like it would be eating himself up.. My question(s): What do I do now? Is it the harddrive/motherboard that developed a fault? What could be the cause, for I do not recall a virus on my laptop? Are files on the harddrive now lost? Repairable/recoverable? I would be grateful if anyone could give some helpful advice. Thank You.
