    Hi, my laptop hard drive seems to have been damaged. I downloaded the ultimate boot cd and burned it on a CD so as to boot with it and diagnose the hard drive, but when I started the process it unexpectedly turned the laptop off and it does not want to start again. Does anyone know what might have happened, and how I can get my laptop to start again? Thanks.

    Hello jucebreijo and Welcome to PCHF

    What kind of Notebook? -model/brand
    "...and it does not want to start again..." : The Notebook starts but hangs, it doesn't start AT ALL, the PowerButton LED is ON but nothing happens...?

    Thanks for answering. Its a Lenovo G550. Before using the ultimate boot cd it started and did not recognize the HD, but as soon as I started running the diagnostic it just turned off by itself and now every time I press the power button all is does is that the battery led flicks

    Yes, but unfortunately there is nothing related to what's happening. It's as if no power is coming in. I check the charger and it's fine. So, I guess the problem is in the mother board. Thanks
