Can this be fixed or is it better to move on?

My laptop either doesn't see the HDD on bootup (cannot find OS), or stops seeing it a few minutes into use (BSOD). Could this type of problem:
a) be reasonably easily resolved by me for small amount of cash
b) be easily resolved by a professional for a reasonable amount of cash
c) be best resolved by selling it on ebay for parts or repair for a reaonably small amount of cash?

The laptop in question is a Thinkpad X31 - I asked about this before
when I was at the troubleshooting stage (I then thought it was the RAM, but it wasn't).
It's not the HDD itself as I've swapped it out with another and I get the same problem. I have already posted to the Thinkpad forum, but I didn't get any answers. (And I've already bought an X40 as a replacement so I'm not looking for recommendations - thanks!)
