If yours can’t be detected its either the actual thing is faulty “if it was working before its most likely to be” or your operating system isn’t detecting it anymore.

Assuming you have xp or vista, go to control panel “found on start menu”
Select classic mode on the top left. And then go to “add hardware” this option
Will detect all the stuff in your computer once clicked and scans. If it find you
Missing hardware then install it. Restart and all should be working if it didn’t
Detect it then you’ll need a new drive “replace it”.

But to be 100% sure then you need to remove that hardware and insert it in
Another device and see if it works there.

The labtop was found and i cant get into without


You can try to enter setup, most users either forget or don't bother to setup a password to enter it, and either add youself as administrator. With admin rights you'll be able to change/reset passwords, add or remove users and perform other system related functions. To enter setup startup the computer and start tapping the escape key before windows is completely installed. If your unsure of the various options in the setup do a web search for setup options.
