Hi, Go into the BIOS settings and see if the HDD has been detected. If it isn't your HDD has either failed or the connection to it has somehow come loose.

Hi Betty,

Try to install an operating system (Windows/Ubuntu recommended) to Flash Drive and load it on your laptop. Then open the disk drive manager and check your internal Hard Drive condition. Below are possibly symptoms:

  • If the drive detected and there's no error, your windows partition isn't bootable, luckily it's repairable with windows installer CD
  • If the drive detected but it corrupted, this link will help you
  • If the drive not detected, your laptop's SATA cable which connects motherboard to internal hard drive was broken, or unfortunately your internal hard drive is dead (>_<) sorry..
