If you have a disk inside, get a paper clip and straighten it. Locate a tiny hole on the "door" usually next to eject button. Poke the paper clip in gently and push when you feel resistance. Remove your disk and claim warranty from your supplier

Reseat hard drive

The hard drive can be removed and reconnected (reseating) by removing the screw/s on the bottom of the laptop. The hard drive compartment will have disk symbol. Open the laptop lid slightly before you slide out the hard drive. Insert the hard drive back into the laptop so it makes proper connection.replace the screw/s.
Boot up the laptop, if it does not boot up then power off and power up and press F1 to go into IBM BIOS setup - check to see if the hard disk is detected. If not then the hard disk is faulty and needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard disk to get the laptop operating again.

note yet..............the hard disk is the problem.
did you by mistake drop the laptop or someone did. It may have sloted out of place and sometimes makes it not function well. sometimes a little tap at the disk compartement side could solve a shifted disk which can be the case here or try opening the hard disk compartment with the appropiate screw drivee, remove the disk and reinsert it again and make sure it fits firmly. if you are within warranty period do return it to be atttended to by a technician or counsult a local technician for help.
good luck.

Hi there.

When you turn the laptop on, keep pressing Alt+F10. This should open the recovery program. Follow the on-screen instructions for factory settings.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work.
