XP says no hard drive on 3 different drives
Posted on 2011-10-21
I have a HP Pavilion dv5000 Laptop that crashed and will not boot to any Hard Drive (3) that I try and one is new. Each HD will try to boot and then restart. I formatted the hd that was in it, using my desktop computer, and it still acts like it's going to boot to XP even though there's nothing on it and then reboot's.
When I boot to XP CD and press Enter to set up Windows, it reads: Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Again, this happens on 3 HD's and one is new. Is the BIOS messed up?
