    There are only two kinds for the MAJORITY of laptops use either IDE or SATA. Does the computer recognise the hard drive in the bios?

    Yes if they are both either IDE or Sata.

    If one laptop has IDE drive and the other laptop has serial drive (SATA) , the answer is no.

    What model of HP and Dell laptops. I could pin point the correct answer.

You will have to reset your BIOS password. To reset the BIOS read the information from this link

In case of your HP laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

HP Pavillion ze4400 can this laptop use an external mouse & keyboard ?

Any external USB mouse can be connected to the system. As well as USB keyboard. Or specifically if you go through HP, the mouse part number is: NR152AA, and keyboard is GM321AA. As far as non-HP products you will need to check on compatibility on each. Hope this helps you in this question.

How can i fix a problem with my laptop

That is never fun. The first thing to always do is reset the laptop (disperse all capacitors) by removing the battery and ac adapter then holding the power button in for 45 seconds. Then I would remove your hard drive(s), wireless card and ram,turn it on and see if you can get an error for not having ram. That would mean your motherboard is POSTing. If you do get an error code (beeps), try putting the devices in one by one till you can find the faulty device. Another thing is to try without the battery in it, ac power only and opposite. If there is no way you can get it to do anything other than cycle on and off, replace the motherboard. Good luck, hope you find something simple.

This sounds like a processor or system board failure. Most likely it is the processor. If the unit is still under manufacturer warranty contact them for replacement.
