Yes I have just removed my hard drive from my laptop because I installed a new dvd rom drive. When I reassembled everything and went to boot it up my hard drive was no longer recognized. When I go to bios it says there is no hard drive. Just wondering if any one has and idea why it is no longer recognized

Have you checked to make sure connections to the hard drive are firm and tight?

What make/model laptop is that?

I've never heard of one in which you have to remove the internal HD in order to install a DVD drive.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

The reason I removed the hard drive was i had to get to two screws so i could open the laptop up and yes I have checked to make sure that all connections are tight

Remove the hard drive again and double check that none of the pins are bent, and that the little black adapter (between the hard drive and the plugs in the case) is seated properly. NOTE: You may not have the little black adapter depending on the make and model of your system - but if you do, it's very important to use.
