How do i get my SSD to work in my replacement laptop?

ok so i had a samsung laptop die, so i removed my SSD, sent laptop back recieved the replacement.
i put my SSD in the laptop but it will not read my SSD at all, it just goes straight to bios.
same laptop so everything should work since the drivers will be for the same hardware..

I hooked up my SSD as a external to another pc which reads it fine so SSD is fine, not sure why it wont boot with the SSD? or read it.

SAMSUNG Series 3 NP350V5C-T02US
SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

You didn't boot the other PC I am guessing. = The SSD has different drivers than is required in the replacement PC. This tutorial should get your PC going again. Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

the replacement pc is the exact same model as the pc it replace therefore all the hardware is fine, other pc's motherboard died, was never a issue with the SSD

In the Bios, did you check the boot device setting? It should be set to HDD.

If everything were exactly the same, there would be no problem.

it is the same exact model laptop, its instant boot to bios, it does not read the SSD, not a driver conflict.

It looks like you have a UEFI Boot Support setting, try changing it.
