Hello, this is my first question to a problem but i had to try something before proceeding to a computer store for repairs. Can any help. My brother has pulled out a wd 20.5 (205AA)harddrive by mistake while the computer was running. I have tryed to re boot it with a windows 98se soft ware that i have to no avail, all i get is -computer does not have hard drive disk or its not functioning correctly or your harddisk requires a special driver device.
I thought there may have been a spark go through the hard drive a buggered it so i bought a second hand formatted one 40gb(wd400) off ebay and i get the same problem.
Even if i try starting computer without cd rom support an type fdisk all i get is -no fixed disks present.
Am i doing something wrong or has the motherboard had damage, please help as i am to in experienced to deal with it.jo
