Question about Computers & Internet
1. Check the BIOS, make sure the hard drive is being recognized and that boot order includes the hard drive, preferably before the LAN/PXE boot item. You may also want to test the memory in the laptop: http://www.memtest.org/
2. (ONLY if your tech savy), I'd check all the connection between the hard drive and the motherboard, usually there's some kind of adapter or ribbon that connects between the two but not always. You may want to look for a CMOS reset or pull the CMOS battery.
3. Take it in for service.
