Please reinstall the operating system on the new drive you kept and install ALL drivers. Even after installing all the drivers if you face any problems, there might be some other problem might be present in your laptop.
Hope this helps to you. .

My laptop crashed and we installed a new hard drive, as HP said, but we received a message that it did not recognize operating system. So we ordered recovery disks and put those in turned it on, still no...


ok, First you should understand the new hard drive is empty, it is not even formatted. At this point the most likely issue is the bios not recognizing the Hard Drive because the Bios is not set to automatically detect the hard drive. Enter the Bios and go to the hard Drive selection sub menu and have the computer automatically detect the hard drive size and type. Then go to the boot sequence menu and alter the boot order to CDROM, Floppy (If you have one), Hard Drive, Network. Reboot the computer and you should see the RAM test, hard Drive Identification and then the CDROM should start to boot. I can't be more specific about the steps because your post didn't include the model of the laptop. All of this assumes your CDROM is still in working order since HP laptops have a known issue with CDROM's going out for no reason. The hard way for dealing with this would be to get an encloser to put a hard drive in to make it portable and connect to another computer and do the partitioning and formatting of that new drive on the other computer and solve the problem that way.

The hard drive crashed will not start


If the hard drive have crashed meaning that the hard drive itself is damaged, then your solution is to replace a new harddrive. If you do have a recovery disc already made, or one is provided then you will have to use that disc once the hard drive is replaced with the new one, and follow the procedure to reinstalled the operating system. If the original hard drive had crash and does no work anymore (where the bios/computer cannot detect it) and you have important data that you would like to retrive, there are places such as office depot, bestbuy, where they can help you send it to a recovery file center to recover files from your damaged hard drive. Do not attemp to fix or open a damaged harddrive, you can forever damage the files on the cyclinder disc. 2) Now if your harddrive crash in term as windows just crashing and you cannot get into your operating system and the bios is still able to detect the hard drive, and it's giving you a error message, then you will only need to reinstall, or do a windows recovery through your recovery disc, If you do not have a recovery or made the disc, then you will need to buy a new operating system software. If you computer does not start meaning no display on the screen at all, then please replay back. That is a different story.

It doesnt detect my harddrive and it causes windows to crash...how do i fix it?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then probably the hard disk is faulty.
To check if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect the hard drive or open the folders and files, then the hard disk is faulty.
To get your computer operating again, replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Look carefully at the hard drive that you are replacing. When you take it out of the [mine is a Compaq f750us] computer you might see, for want of a better term, a "STRETCHER" attached to the contacts/connectors, remove it. Put it on the NEW hard drive, put hard drive into computer. Try it again. I did and I did NOT get the "error" code! Why because the HD is now CONNECTED...touches the contacts..

Hard drive crashed


Nope, it's just a matter of pulling the old hard drive and putting in the new one. Sometimes there will be an adapter attached to your old drive that you'll have to transfer over to the new one. What you need is a 2.5" mobile PATA (IDE) drive.
