|I am a amateur on computing so just trying with fail and error.|
Now my friend gave me his LAPTOP for repair. went to black screen and operation system not found.
Possible, yeah so went to the bios and placed boot from CD-DVD at top
Then booted with the windows 7 disk (not included with the laptop)
tried to install the new operation system. but the install program didn't manage to locate any drive.
So I started thinking, probably the HDD failed or anything inside the laptop might be loose.
opened the laptop and removed the HDD then plugged it into my desktop.
after booting my desktop i get a balloon pop up in the right corner Locked Hard drive found click here to unlock.
upon clicking Intel matrix storage console starts up and i can read all the info of the HDD
