Can you provide the laptops brand name and any model name or series number.
When you power up go into the BIOS and see if the HDD is listed then let us know.
Not knowing your laptops details at the moment we cannot be very specific but for
getting into the BIOS try tapping the F2, F8 or Del key when powering up.

You could try removing the HDD from the laptop, clean the connections and then refit it and hope it is detected, if it is back up all important data to disk or flash drive a.s.a.p.
Should you need to replace the HDD consider http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136280
If the HDD is not detected you should try and loan an external USB HDD enclosure and attempt to retrieve your data that way http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817729011 as an example.
Below is the best info I could find on removing the HDD;
I hope it is as easy as it sounds, good luck and let us know how it goes or if we can assist you at all.
Installing a new hard drive is easy.Unscrew back cover for hard drive,unplug, take off old hard drive off the mounting, install new hard drive and plug in and replace cover.

The problems seem "similar" but operating systems are different... XP and Vista
Are both of these topics referring to the same machine?
