Hi automan9,

Please try the below mentioned steps and check if this fixes the problem:

1. Disconnect the power cable and battery from the Laptop.
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to remove the residual power.
3. Open the computer cover.
4. Reseat (disconnect and reconnect) the Hard Drive connections and check if the computer boots. If the computer works fine the issue is fixed, otherwise follow the next step.
5. If possible, check the Hard Drive by connecting it to another computer. If the Hard Drive works fine in another computer, the motherboard is bad and needs replacement. If the Hard Drive is not detected in another computer also, you need to replace the Hard Drive.

Note: The steps above require you to reseat the components by removing the system cover/taking apart the chassis. Please perform these steps only if you are comfortable else seek a technician's help. Also, refer to the Service Manual for accurate steps and safety instructions.

Do reply with results.
