Question about Computers & Internet
While working in laptop, suddenly screen went blank & tried to restart it, but displayed message as hard disk not found, in bios it is showing the presence but even loading windows xp setup showing the message as 'no hard disk is found'... service centre techs told that there may be mother board problem...please assist me get rid off this problem. Thanks, madhu
There might be few reasons for this.
The worst is that your Motherboard/HDD is broken, but I am almost sure that this is NOT the case. Motherboards and HDDs do not burn just like that !
The good thing is that you can 'see' your HDD in BIOS, which means it is not dead!
There can also be a wrong BIOS settings for the HDD controller. Check BIOS settings for your HDD-SATA controller. Somehow maybe your BIOS lost/changed HDD settings.
The problem is that I am not sure you can check your HDD on another computer. If you can do that, then it is the best chance to determine if something is wrong with your HDD, Also there (on another computer) you can more easy use some HDD test and repair software. Also, that way you can easy make backup of your important files.
