New to the forum so please excuse any newbie gaffes.
I have an HP Pavilion ze5170 that won't boot from the hard drive. As the disk drive is broken, I removed the hard drive to test it and reinstall the OS (XP) and it worked like a charm. Once I installed it back in the laptop however, I get a error message saying that there is no OS. The drive uses a connector to fit into the slot, and it feels a little loose when in place. My thoughts were that it could it be a crappy connector. Any thoughts?
