Boot device not found

My laptop froze one day and I re started it and it started making a ticking noise then said there wasn't a boot device, hard disk does not exist. I took the hard drive out as suggested and put it back in and it still doesn't work. I've run every single test they allowed. What do I do?

Re: Boot device not found

You took the same hard drive out and put it back in? It appears your hard drive has crashed and needs to be replaced. We can help further with that once we know the model number. It is not as expensive or difficult as you fear.
