Your problem seems to be related to the subject in this knowledgebase article as my guess is you have installed XP?


To change the setting back to compatabilty you need to enter BIOS and change it in the Config > SATA menu.

Re: t61p 6459CT Hard not detectable after BIOS update

Thanks mate,  that seems to be the issue.


In panic given laptop to a service guy, not the authorised one as the authorised ones are pathetic and costly here in India.

will update if this solution resolved the case.
