After a sligt jolt from droppign the laptop, a Twinhead P97TE, it wouldnt work, so we bought a new toshiba HD that is a compatible replacement for the original. The problem is that when we start the computer, it doesnt detect the new harddrive. I think the AMIBIOS Mobile 97 Bios is too old, but i cant find a website that will give me an updated version. Please help..

I looked around the Twinhead website and found nothing.. I looked at the Amibios website, and under the Mobile section it had nothing.. i cant find an updater anywhere....

one more problem... when i start the computer up half the times it wont even get to the bios, but ill hear the HD trying to start up.. i think its because it doesnt have enough voltage, the new HD might be too power intensive.. any ideas?

the harddisk might not be the only part that has suffered from the fall.
