    I have a friend with a computer problem. When he restarts his computer on the black screen, it shows an error: Disc/IO. He says you can't log on to your desktop. So i guess it just basiclly sticks to that black screen and won't get anything started.

    he uses Windows Me

    All help appreciated.

    and it also says "Replace Disk and press any key" and he doesn't even have any disks. I ain't really a comp expert so i dunno what really to do.

    Does it get to where it is trying to start Windows or does it die before then?

    He says it sometimes work. Like 1 in a chance of 10. It dies before it hits windows. It'll just remain on the screen until he shuts down.

    Hard drive might be going out.

    There are no floppys/cds in the drives right?
