I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.
1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well.
Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad.
Continue to part 2.
2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
