Operating system not found & no IDE device

My hp pavillion dv9000 has had a bunch of problems since I bought it about six years ago but it has always come through though. Now I haven't had a chance starting the laptop because of an error message right after the HP start screen that says &quot;operating system not found&quot;.. Seems like it can't detect any hard drive as it says &quot;no ide device&quot; when running a hard drive test in bios. I've tried everything, I think, reseating the hard drives, load default configuration (bios), hard reset, and simple things. This gives me the idea that the hard drive is completely broken :smileysad:<br>Would it be possible to get an external hard drive and start it in that way?<br><br>Regards Nossin
