    Red box appears which reads:

    Hard drive not installed: If operating system not found, reinstall hard drive.
    Hit any key to exit.

    Then it reads: Operating System not found

    WHAT? WHAT HAPPENED????The system worked fine yesterday

    Any suggestions? Or did I fry the machine

    So if you enter the BIOS setup it doesn't see the hard drive either?

    Try finding the hard drive on the laptop and make sure its is securely connected. Try pulling it out and then putting it back in to reseat the connection. On IBM's this generally isn't too hard to do, just look for an access panel on the back, side, or bottom.
