Always worth a go, but probably you will need to attach the HD to another pc.
There a a couple of ways to do this.
1 open pc remove HD and attach to the other pc
2 remove HD and fit it into an external hard drive enclosure
or finaly there are usb hard drive docks that you just push your hard drive in.
No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.
A clicking sound coming from the HD is a bad sign. If I were you, I would back up your HD now just to be safe.
Before doing anything else, make sure your hard drive is seated on a flat surface. Some older hard drives may have trouble operating on an uneven surface. If the clicking sound persists, follow the procedure below:
In the Start menu click on Computer, then Right-Click on your HD. Open Properties, and open the Tools tab. You will see a process called Error-checking. Click on that. Check both boxes, then press Start.
After the Disk-check is finished, restart your computer. Hopefully the clicking will be gone.
If the clicking is not gone, the hard drive is most likely dying. So make sure your files are backed up, because you will need a new HD.
Hope this helps!

You can get a drive enclosure for the SATA drive that is in the PC, and copy your files to the new PC via USB. You can get them for about $15, and it will take no more than a half hour to install. Then, after you get your files off the old drive, you can format the drive, and use it as a portable external drive that would come in handy for doing backups. Everyone should keep at least two copies of their precious files.
Go to either bestbuy.com or compusa.com and look for the hard drive there. The hard drive will be cheaper going thru either of those places. Also check out pricewatch.com cause you can compare prices there. Also go thru google and check out the shopping results of the hard drive your looking for as well.
Lots of places to check and the hard drive will definitely be cheaper then going thru HP.
Hi. Once I had this similar problem with a HP Pavilion dv9000. "No Operating System"; "Windows Recovery Console cannot continue because there's no HD present..press F3 to Exit". No progress with Safe Mode nor Command Prompt, etc.
Then I went to the Bios, change tab to "System Configuration" and change the "Sata Native Support" to disable, whitch says that by changing to disable the HD would work better if the Operating System are Win2000 and Win9x.
Hit "Safe and Exit" and the computer started normaly!
I relly don't know how or why. It just work.
I don't know if would work for Linux (mine had Windows XP) and don't know the Bios view of your laptop. But you can explore and give it a try.
Hope this helps.
God Bless You!

To recover your files you will need a 2.5" external sata usb hard drive case. Take the hard drive out of your lap top and install it in the case. Plug the USB drive into another computer with enough space to copy all the files you want to save. Once you have all the files backed up that you need format the drive and re install your operating system fresh. Then load all your rescued files back to your laptop with another external USB backup drive. This is the only way and I know it works because I have to do it every time I thrash my laptop running bad cracks. Please take the time to rate this fixya for sharing my secrets for free.
