Sounds like your HD failed, go into the bios and see if its recognized there.

i concur with nitestick's post.


however, i am going to add a bit more info. check to see if the hard disk is picked up in the bios. If it isnt, i would suggest pulling it out of the laptop and checking if everything is connected alright then replacing the disk. If it still doesnt pick it up, check if you can hear the hard disk actually spinning up or giving any signs of life at all. If not, your disk is dead.

If you're worried about some data (read porno) that youve lost on your disk and the only problem is that it's not spinning up, you can actually purchase a disk of the same MODEL and replace the circuit board on the back. Of course, if your disk is damaged internally, youre screwed and have to send it out for data recovery(read $$$$).

Pull out the disk, get a 2.5 to 3.5 hard disk converter. Slap the lappy drive into a desktop, copy and paste.
