hard drive issue, won't even get into the bios....I had a similar problem
two years ago and they swapped out the motherboard....so as luck would have
it, my extended warranty expired about a month ago....
Anybody have any suggestions other than taking it in for servicing? I may
still do that unless I can find someone who has an old nc8000 they are
looking to sell.....

Look at the cost of buying a replacement system vs the cost of a new
motherboard. An indexpensive USB disk drive enclosure will give you a
simple way to retrieve all of your data from the NC 8000 disk drive and
will give you a backup drive for a new system.
Try bargaining with service and see if they'll do a warranty repair even
though your contract expired. You've already had one board fail and
might make a case that the new one should have laster longer than just
past the end date of the service contract.
