I have an old IBM laptop from ca. 2003. It doesn't boot anymore. When I turn it on, it gets to the IBM logo screen and just keeps resetting itself over and over again. But if I press the AccessIBM button, I get some options. One is to run diagnostic tests. I ran it, and it listed all these components, and they all said "OK", except "Option ROM" said "FAIL". Could this explain such behavior?
I don't really need this old machine, but there are some files I had made on the hard drive, which are pretty important to me. Should I try to physically remove the hard drive?
