Hi !
\015\012
This error means either there is no disk (or disconnected/wrong connected) or your HDD is gone (which I don't believe) !
\015\012
I can't find a reason why you pulled out your HDD when it was (I assume) working good before ?!?

Anyway, . . .now, please check carefully the connectors - both sides, to the HDD and to the Board(if any), if they are properly fit!
\015\012It is an IDE disk and there are two groups pins on the HDD. Check the pins if they are all going to plastic male connector (and then to the board.
\015\012A group of 4 or 6 pins on HDD should not be connected. There is one pin missing in (about) middle of the second row of pins - it is o.k.
\015\012
\015\012Put your ear close on the chasis of laptop and find if there is a spinning noise when you turn your laptop on.
\015\012
\015\012If there you can hear noise, then check in BIOS if your HDD exists.

If not, try to check it on another Laptop/PC.
\015\012Regards.
Hi there.
Go into the bios and change the boot order to the HDD or hard drive, to do this restart the laptop and hit F2 as it starts, this will get you into the bios, change the boot order and set the HDD as the first boot device, save changes and exit.
The computer should boot into the operating system.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
