    I have two IBM Thinkpad T40 laptops and both are coming up "No Operating System Found" when I try to boot. Everything was running fine with both machines, #1 laptop al of a sudden came up with the error when I tried to use the machine, didn't change a thing. I tried a brand new HD and tried to install Xp, says "Can't find any hard drives". Ok, I pulled the HD and put it in #2 laptop which was running fine, now same thing with #2 even with it's original drive "No oper sys found". Both HD's are recognized and work in my dell so can't be anything wrong with them. Tried a brand new HD in #1 and #2, will take the Xp CD and go as far as "No HD's found" Help!! Thanks!

    Seems like the hard drives aren't getting power. If this were a desktop, I would say change the power supply. If your laptops aren't on batteries, and using just the AC adapter, then I would change the adapter.
