Whatever you do 'DO NOT' put the hard drive into another working computer. That is the worst advice anyone can give. Because if it is infected then you run the risk of infecting the other computer.

I know nothing about laptop stuff.
Theres no way for me to veiw hardware once the XP is up because everything is blocked. When i try to start in safemode it generates an error and sets it to restart in 30 seconds. i can reach system restore before the timer reaches zero, but it shutsdown.
When i use the boot cd it gets to the part where i can veiw the partitions but then shuts down.
I have no idea how to remove the HD from a laptop, but i know best buy will install any component you buy for a small charge. then i could just reload Xp with my disc.
Is there any way i could use another laptop's USB port to acess the Infected laptops HD and format it from there?
