It sounds like a hard drive problem to me. If the computer does not see a hard drive, that is usually not a good sign. You might contact the shop that did the work and inform them that you are still having problems. A good shop will often give consideration (discounted or free labor) for a similar problem within a short time.
You did not mention what was done to your PC in the shop, but if they installed a new hard drive, etc., then you should have a warranty with that.
Normally a repair of $150 is kind of a lot unless there were parts involved.
Short of that a hard drive diagnostic will give more insight into the potential of this kind of problem. A good free one is called DFT, and you can download it but it's a bootable disc, so you need access to a computer with a CD burner, a blank disc, and CD burning software.
Here is the site for DFT: (also see DFT user guide on same page)
Burn that image file onto a CD, then insert it into your laptop and boot from it (ESC brings up the boot menu on HP's).
From there, I would run the advanced diagnostic on the drive.

1st of all you have to make sure your hard disk in enabled in system setup. maybe f2 when you boot. go into hard disks and see if your hard drive shows up. then boot priority and make sure your your hard drive has a check next to it because the check means its enabled. if not then it looks like you might have a bad hard drive. you can try to purchase a usb enclosure and install your hard drive inside,then take it to any 2.0 usb pc or laptop port and see if you can retrieve any important data then do a full format and install it back into your laptop and install windows again

I cannot find any printscreen or prtsc button on my (second hand) HP compaq nc6320. Can I make one with quickbuttons or so ..?

You should have a blue [fn] button to the right of the [ctrl] key. Hold it down and press [insert] at the same time. My NC6320 has lots of these functions printed in blue on the keys.

Hope this helps!

No problem. You need to enter The bios, And get the computer to start from The CD/DVD rom drive.
Put windows in the Drive, and you should be able to reboot from there with options to Format et,c.

Any problems Just Ask.
