HP pavilion laptop will not boot windows...IDE device not found

\015 My hp pavilion dv6000 has the same problem, it will turnon but after the HP logo screen it will power down and then loop all over again..this problem started after my cat knocked my laptop off of a stool that is only 1 foot from the ground...im thinking it has disconnected some cord or something...also when i go into setup i choose to do a primary disk check and it says "no ide device"...please help!!! Thanks,Clueless\015

Answers :

This seems like a hard drive damage. the DV6000 laptop is equiped with a SATA drive and it could have locked up. I would suggest changing the hard drive
You usually get that message when the hard drive has crashed.

Try removing the hard drive from the unit, then reseat it back into place.

Hopefully it was just dislodged a little bit.

Let me know what happens.
