    Have you tried to use a boot disk and done the command:

    fdisk /mbr ?

    Good call TeKniques :)

    recon4data - I am not sure that the BIOS have been hit, but you can do it this way.
    Remove battery - move BIOS jumper into position to clear - refit battery and start.
    I usually then go to the save screen and select 'default settings'.
    Now restart with a boot disk and fdisk/mbr - or with XP fix/mbr
