> My hard-drive pass both test in the  F10.

 

This means that the disk-drive has been "detected" by the motherboard, and that the *LIMITED* testing has shown that the disk-drive successfully can be "read" from, and "written" to.

 

> On boot up said no hard drive found.  

 

Really?  Is that the exact wording?  Or, is it something like "no bootable device" ?

 

The latter would suggest that the CONTENTS of the disk-drive, namely the "file-system" is messed-up.

 

Or, it would suggest that you should enter BIOS SETUP, and check the list of "bootable" devices, to ensure that the disk-drive is LISTED, and that it is listed as the FIRST entry on the list.

 

> What kind of  tool will I need to get the top off to replace the  SATA connectors ?  

 

 See: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03598525

for the "Upgrading and Servicing Guide" for your hardware.

 

Basically, you put it "face-down" (preferably on a soft towel on a flat surface), and start removing some screws, first to remove the pedestal, and then to remove the back panel.

 

At this point, it would be best to purchase a new disk-drive, remove the current disk-drive, reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive, and then use an external SATA-to-USB adapter to connect the current SATA drive as a USB device, and then copy all your personal files from "old" to "new" disk-drive.

 

If you try to reinstall Windows onto the current disk-drive, you risk "losing" all your Personal Files.  Don't try this!
