Re: problem in open drive
Its a simple virus problem which makes the drive autorun and cant be open directly by double click.So if you have some good antivirus than scan your system and i will prefer macfee for this problem. or u try this also go to --> tools -->folder option-->view-->so hidden files and folder and than remove the any auto run files from the disk except system files.

If possible get partion manager s/w and format it,it's better you have partio magice bootable CD with you and format with it,even after using partition magice cd, if your hdd doesnt format, there is a way to open a hdd and fixing the head of hdd try it out and let me know.
you can bye pass the bios password by removing the hdd. then use an external hdd connector to connect it to another computer. then use partion magic or easus partition manager to delete the partion in the hdd.(leave it uncreated and unformarted).then put it back to your laptop and format it without selecting the boot order. for more mail to email@example.com
Problems with hard disks are indicated by 17XX errors.The computer more or less suggests booting from alternative diskette drive.Unless you have old parts to substitute for the repairs, I would disconnect the hard drive and boot from diskette for the time being until you find the parts( being drive, controller and cable).Check your bios settings to boot without the hard drive after disconnecting it.
Whenever you switch drives, you must access the BIOS and have it redetect the drive every time. Try the new drive again. Have the BIOS detect it. Use the Windows XP disk and do a full fomat (youll get an option to quick format it, but dont) If the format fails, then the drive is defective.
If you're trying to format this drive, and you have nothing on it you want, then I would suggest that you use a windows 98 boot disk HERE. And first thing you need to do is load dos by putting the floppy disk in your drive A: after you create it from that site of course. Then allow dos to boot up. I'd opt for the allow cd rom option when it asks. After you get a dos prompt A: type in fdisk. Go to the display partions section and see what your drive is partioned as? Once you find that out, I'd delete the partion from the main menu choice delete partion. After that create a new partion from the main menu. Creating a new Dos partion will allow you to choose the size of the partion you want, then after that it will create your new Dos partion. When that's done, exit fdisk, and go to the A: prompt and type in format c: This will format the drive all over again, and give you a clean fresh starting point in which you install your OS.
Three possible reasons: 1. Your IDE cable is defective or is not seated/plug in correctly. Try to replace or re-seat/re-insert; 2. The on-board disk management of the hard disk is corrupted/defective. There is no remedy except to replace the PCboard or the entire hard disk; 3. Your motherboard BIOS/CMOS needs to be flashed and/or something is wrong with the IDE interface.
Of the 3, # 1 is the most common.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
