I'm trying to help a friend with his laptop. He has XP Pro. It stopped getting into the computer just after getting to home page....then wouldn't advance any further. I removed the 40 GB WD hard drive and connected it to my HP desktop and saved what needed to be saved to CD. Then I put it back into the laptop to re-install Windows. When I turned it on it wouldn't boot and HD not seen in BIOS either. I then removed it again and tried to re-install and the same problem. I took it back and connected it to mine and it showed up in there. The only difference is the connection adapter or the connection slot in laptop. I looked at the slot with flash light and it looks ok to me. What would be my next move??????????
