... which Operating System do you have on the laptop?

... you're displaying "OS: Windows XP" in your spec yet you post in the Vista forum!

... enter your bios by tapping <F1> or <F2> @ bootup

... is the harddrive "seen" in there?

... perhaps select "default setting" ...save on exit of bios

... does the harddrive pop-out easy enough? ...might be worth taking out and reconnecting, I have known heat expansion to effect contacts before... you might of had some warnings prior like mouse seizure or disk write halting!

... more help maybe:
