Question about IBM ThinkPad R31 2656 Notebook
I had windows x p on my laptop, "i b m think pad r 31", I did format my hard drive, and after that the drive is not recognized. My e-mail address is: email@example.com.
Actually, have you tried running the Windows install yet? When you're in Windows Setup, it should recognize the hard drive as a device, even if it's not formatted or formatted properly.
Try going into the BIOS for the laptop (it might be called Setup Menu or some such - you should see a prompt for hitting a key like Del to get there) and look and see if the BIOS recognizes the hard drive. If the BIOS doesn't see the hard drive, then the problem might be with the laptop and not the hard drive.
