    Dell Inspiron 630 M

    My laptop says no bootable device. I have tried the recovery CD and it comes up with the blue screen. Which one has died, the hardware or the mother board?

    What can I do to get this laptop up and running again.
    Can you help me please?

    Have you confirmed the HD is actually healthy?

    So you can boot off the CD, but trying to access the harddrives causes problems? Check the harddrive - get it out of the machine and put it in a USB case (or one of those converter cables you can get from Maplin) and try and read it from another machine, see if that works.
