HARD DISK NOT EXIST
« on: January 01, 2012, 03:08:10 PM »
Hello, and happy new year!

My sister's son has an HP mini laptop and suddenly it cannot start up. It shows a screen with some f keys that suggest some test. When I click f4 this message appears: hard disk not exist. Also, no mouse sign is shown, and when I installed a usb external mouse nothing happened.

The laptop is new, and it worked fine till now. Should I buy a new hard disk or maybe something else causes the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, DR M.  Happy New Year!

Since the laptop is new, I suggest your sister contact HP.  It should be covered under warranty.
