This forum seems very helpful from what i've read and so I thought I should post my problem to see if anyone can suggest a solution to me. I recently was watching a video file on my laptop when the computer just shut down. When I try to reboot now, I get an error message saying "Internal HDD Hard error! Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility". When I hit F1 with my windows install disk in the CD-rom drive, I get an error saying that there is no Hard Disk Drive recognized and to make sure that the Hard Drive is powered on, etc. I thought that maybe my hard drive had died on me so I purchased a new hard drive and it is the same exact problem still occuring. Any tips or links on what I might need to do would be very helpful...Thanks for your time! Sep 11, 2010 #1 hughva TS Rookie Posts: 58 Most Dells have a diagnostics program (F12 at boot).
