    hey guys i've a real problem on my hands here and im hopeing someone here can help me with it, i'll try and keeps this short, basically i wanted to wipe my laptop off and install a new OS on it, and i kind of taught that my drive was acting up as of late, i ran windows vista ultimate on my laptop, everything went smooth untill it was near the end of instalation, it restarted and said there was an error with the OS, and now my drive is buggered all together, wont read CD's properly, therefore i cant install any CD versions of windows, external hardrive wont work as i dont have the drivers for it installed so its not picking it up, cant boot from USB as its not supported on the laptop's boot screen, cant get into BIOS because i've no idea of my password, cant boot from floppy as there is none on my laptop and, i connected an external one up but its very hard trying to install an OS from a floppy as most of them want you to put a CD in half way thru, i've even tried making my USB HDD show up as a floppy disc, hoping to install of that, so basically if anyway has any info on anything at all, please let me kno....
