a FREIND?  has asked me to look at his hp pavillion ZT1141s laptop, it wont
boot, just offers to boot from A: or CD drive?

I booted into the bios and it shows HD size as 0mb

I booted form a boot recovery cd (mag cover) and it seems no HD is present?

I removed the HD from side slot and then returned same drive to make sure it
was seated ok, same problem

Could an internal HD lead have come off? if so how easy is it to dissemble?

are there any other test I could run prior to getting a screwdriver out
