Greetings,

It looks as if your hard drive is damaged and should be replaced. Have it checked by a technician. Before you replace it compare the cost of repair with a new lappy.

Good luck

Hi Leschkies,

Sadly, it seems that the hard drive has failed. Is it visible in BIOS? I would try connecting it to another PC, as a secondary drive. If it is recognized, I would check it with some tools from the manufacturer's web page. Is your laptop under warranty? If it is, you should contact the reseller. If it is not and the drive is not working on another PC, you may need to get e new drive.

Hope this helps
