I do not see the hard drive


I had the lion on my macbook pro when it stopped working. After that I hold on the power button to shut it down but did not work after that and it showed me a blue screen and a folder which has a question mark on it. I tried to use the CD to fix the problem but I do not see the hard drive :-(

Does that mean that my hard drive is not working any more? how can I make sure? is there anyway to fix it? suggest a hard drive to me if I need to buy one.

Thank u

Please tell us more about the system installation disk you have and how you installed Lion. What system (with upgrades) did you have before you started?Thanks

Yea it would seem your hard drive has died based one your description, however i would not give up on using other methods (Linux tools, command line + others ) of trying to get any stuff you need off of it and making sure it is in fact a hard drive problem .

There is no way to fix it if it is in fact a failed drive. (fixing the drive).

If you want to make sure beyond all doubt i guess you could take it to an apple store for an appointment, they should be able to tell you fairly easily if your hard drive is bad and you do not want to diagnose the problem.

As far as a replacement drive goes I have been using western digital scorpio black drives for a long time, in my personal machines as well..... their warranty/RMA is excellent..... 5 years for the black model line. i haven't had a problem yet in the computers i own..... their blue line is good too if a higher performance drive isn't needed......

WD has a model line now with AF (advanced format) 4k sectors which allows for more storage space after formatting.... and OSX supports this.

Seagate i don't esp like, thats just me,

Hitachi makes some nice drives too.

i would get a WD black or blue 500GB from their Advanced format model line....... my MBP has a 250GB black drive from western digital.

I only just noticed the Lion part, if this happened right after upgrading to Lion this is something you should look into, boot from the original system install disks that came with your laptop (snow leopard) and choose disk utility after choosing to install (from the menu), this should show your hard drive, if it does you will know the hard drive is not dead.(don't install snow leopard).
