I had purchase laptop Compaq nx6125 in the year 2005. Recently it had developed problem of not detecting hard disk some time. I have consulted computer engineer they suggested me that my hard disk got corrupted and required change. On there advice new hard disk 160 GB Samsung was installed. But to my surprise the problem still existing. The problem is when I open my laptop some time does not detect the hard disk. It says that please insert disk and press any key. I then turn off force fully and again restart once or twice / thrice it open and after that it function absolutely fine. Now computer engineer suggesting that change VGS Chip or some says mother board. Please advice me what should I do. I shall be very grateful to you

Hi Anil
I was having the same problem, i also replaced the harddrive with no joy and updated the bios,I was also getting a problem of the laptop shutting itself off now and again, luckly i had a spare motherboard, I replaced the old one and bingo problem solved,
So my guess is the problem lies somewere on the motherboard, Hope this helps abit,
