Hello,
I am trying to fix my laptop,Evo N800c, actually it's an assembled one. While i am installing windows xp, there was an error found..." Setup didn't find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve a manufacturer supplied diagnostic or setup program. Setup cannot continue. To quit Press F3." I had bought my TravelStar Hitachi ATA/IDE 5400 rpm tested and okay.

I hope to hear from any one of you here.
Please help me, I want this laptop run.
Thank you so much.
