Question about HP Pavilion dv9700t PC Notebook
There should be no reason why the hard drive was not recognized by the system straight away when you powered up the new motherboard.
Now the type of hard drive is a serial ATA (SATA)
You can try to reset the BIOS by holding down the F9 key and hit the enter key.
Then go into the BIOS and see if the drive is recognized in the main page of the BIOS, if the hard drive is seen in the BIOS listen to see if you hear it spinning up, if you can hear the drive spin up then you may have to wait for the drive to initialize.
If you can hear anything from the drive at all then there is a possibility that the drive has locked up.
Please post back if you require anymore help or advise.

First Refix RAM memory.
Reconnect connection to harddisk power cable and sata or ide cable of hdd.
Also remove pci cards from pci slot .
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are defaults.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then check that your harddisk is detected .
Go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddrive.

I have seen this a couple of times. Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor. Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55. If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard. Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim. This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.
