    Default notebook will not start up windows

    I was using the notebook and suddenly there was a vibrating sound and my comp froze.
    Reboot it and it was only a black screen.
    Tried several times but i only get a blank screen.


    Does anybody know why is it like this?

    That is a really heavy usage from a notebook, I think the type of notebook selection is important, like Dell have Latitude series which would be for such heavy usage vs their lower end casual usage, likewise Lenovo T series would fit into your usage requirements.

    The problem could be that your current notebook was not designed for heavy usage, just my 2 cents.

    is it cover under warranty?
    I doubt it's heavy usuage cuz i use it 8 hrs straight in school,air coned enviroment and start using it around 8pm in the nite for 4 hrs.

    Haha sounds like the HDD died though. I don't know.. hope it's still under warranty. Honestly notebooks shouldn't be carried around much though it's portable, vibes are bad bad for the HDD.

    I did not hit it nor drop it.
    I was replying to some email and then this dam vibratin sound came.
    After which,restartig gave me only a black screen.

    If my Hdd crashes...it means i cannot retrieve my files right?

    What are my chances of having them fix the problem without them telling me it's my fault that such issues arise?

    As long as there is no sign of external damage and your notebook is still under warranty, they will fix it FOC.
