System does not detect hard drive

  rmandok 07:37 05 Mar 2015

hi, I have a problem with my Dell Studio Xps 1640 laptop and its hard drive disk which is Toshiba mk5061gysn. 3 days ago the lcd turn blue and after that when I started win7 at the first instance everything seems fine but when I wanted to do something everything just freeze. I decided to install win7 again but when I reached the step of choosing hdd partitions, there wasn't any and I faced with this error "no drivers were found. click load driver to...". Afterward I downloaded some mass storage drivers and then click load drivers but none of the drivers match the hdd ,if the system could actually detect an hdd device, and that's it. Please help me through this.

I had a similar set of apparently unrelated problems with my laptop last month - it was actually the hdd dying. I suspect you need a new hdd.

Remove and refit the drive to remake the contacts,

and hope that works long enough for you to get your data off the drive.

I agree the drive is probably on its wayout.
