My Son plugged his E Machine laptop into an extension socket and the plug sparked. Now it will not boot up.A message to insert disc shows. I have tried using the Windows 7 disc and press reset your pc,but it states "Unable to reset your pc. a required drive partition is missing". I then tried reinstalling Windows 7 and it asks "Where do you want to install Windows. We cannot find any drives. To get a storage driver click load drives" Can anyone help me as to where the storage drivers are? Lots of options show but i cannot see Storage Drivers I also got a message "To install the device driver for your drive insert the installation media containing the driver files and click ok. It can be a cd,dvd, or usb. I would have thought a fresh install would work but its missing something. I googled the messages and all i could find was to make sure Sata port was set to AHCI. which it is.The hard drive died a few weeks ago and i replaced it. Its been working fine since. I would be thankful for any help.
