    probably an hd problem. if youa re comfortable, you can order a new hd from newegg and install it yourself, otherwise take it to a comp shop and have them do it.

    It could be the drive controller that went to shit. They'll often take the drive(s) with them when they go, but if you can find another box to drop it into you might just get lucky. (You'll likely need an adapter as this is a laptop HD we're talking about). Downside of this would be, of course, that if it is the IDE controller, you're going to need a new mother board.

    What type of laptop is it?
