There are several ways you can check if you have a working hard drive in your laptop.
1. Get into the BIOS configuration of your laptop, you may be able to see your laptop's configuration, and maybe even see your hard disk. This means your computer has been configured to work with the hard disk, but does not mean the hard disk is OK
2. If your laptop has a floppy disk attached then you can use a boot floppy disk and boot up in DOS. Then you can then run FDISK and then display the hard disk. If FDISK does not detect a hard disk the it is most likely dead.
3. If you can get access to a USB hard drive adapter cable or an IDE adapter cable that you can connect to a working computer's secondary IDE controller. THEN
Remove your laptop drive and connect and connect it to the USB adaptor or an IDE cable, (make sure you connect the drive correctly to the connector) then connect it to a working computer.
If you use an USB adapter, when you connect it to a working compute with XP or Vista operating system, and if the hard drive is OK then you will see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you connect the IDE cable to the secondary contriller and then boot up the working computer with XP or Vista operating system, if the laptop drive is OK you should see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you don't see the hard drive, then most likelt it is dead.
