Hi, A colleague installed a cannon scanner onto a computer and as he did the computer crashed. Now I was sat next to him at the time and didn't see him do anything out of the ordinary and he's not a fool but I wasn't paying much attention so I don't honestly know exactly what he did. Anyway he restarted and the pc boots with a black screen and justs states "MBM: 1" exactly and does nothing further. Thing is I could really do with the data off the harddrive and I haven't got a clue what the problem is, google tells me it's mother board monitor but I can't find any fixes or such. I can boot the computer with a a bart live cd but it wont let me boot with an XP disc or knoppix live strangely. Any Ideas? Am I missing something obvious?
