First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My Toshiba satelite e-100 wont go passed the toshiba screen I think it is locked. Is my laptop ruined?


No, the laptop is not ruined. Only a little sick. At bootup press F2 and enter the BIOS. On the first screen you will find an option for Auto detecting the HDD. Use it to detect the HDD. Once HDD is detected, save the settings and reboot.

I have a packard bell imedia mc1539 and have done a complete recovery on the system. Now the system will not boot. It keeps saying boot from CD and if I go to the BIOS and change the order it then will...


You'l have to make sure that the HDD is detected as the pc posts. Or, you can verify by going into the BIOS and see if the HDD is detected. Also try and check if the HDD is receiving power. When a computer is first started, the HDD will make this certain noise and initiates when powered. That's just know that the HDD powered up and initiated. So then, if the HDD is receiving power but is not detected in the BIOS, it might be the IDE cable. But in most cases, it's probably a connection issue of either the data cable, or the molex connector. Check it and verify that the HDD is detected. Good Luck.
