    Hard drive dead?
    Hello, yesterday i got black screen on my macbook pro, after restart i got question mark folder so i decided to reinstall my lion. Disk utility or reinstalling couldnt find my hard drive and i couldnt erase it, repair it or make partitions nothing so i installed OSX on external HD and its working but just in case external HD is connected. I still cant see my mac HD in disk utility, nothing in About the mac - no HD. Is it dead? Im enclosing pictures. Thank you

    It truly sounds like the drive died. What model Macbook Pro is it? What are the basic specs?

    Your hard drive needs to be replaced. Buy a replacement and follow the directions for changing it at iFixit: The free repair manual - iFixit. If your MacBook Pro is still under warranty (Apple care) take it to Apple and let them do it. Hopefully, you had a backup of your data?
