I have a Lifebook A 556 with Win 7 on it since 3 years ago. It worked well until 3 days ago. When I start it, everything seems to go well: the little flashing dash on the upper left appears, then the Fujitsu Logo, black and grey screens alternate; then only a glowing grey screen remains, with nothing on it.
I could manage to enter in BIOS but did not change anything there (I do not know what to and if I should at all). I inserted the original WIN 7 CD in the CD drive and it started booting (the progress horizontal bar appears); I stopped it because I didn’t want to lose the data on the HDD.
Could someone tell me what could be wrong? Someone suggested that the HDD would be gone but I’m not sure. Thanks a lot!
