At start up, enter the set up (usually press F1, F2 or Del during POST) and see if the drive is identified in the BIOS. If it's not, chances are that the drive is dead (assuming that nothing else has changed).

Quote: Its quite old. No it doesn't boot into windows. Using XP on the laptop Might be time to bite the bullet and replace it. Repairing this kind of issue can be expensive unless you have some sophisticated diagnostic equipment or lots of parts and time to swap them over. I hope you have all your personal stuff backed up. I had a quick glance at the page above but couldn't find a definitive answer to the problem.

I bought a new hard drive, a seagate momentus 20 gig but the laptop won't find the drive. I keep getting the error no bootable devices. I have looked for settings in the BIOS for SATA drives and can't find anything about hard drives at all. If someone could help I would be very greatful. Thanks Neal internal hdd hard Mar 7, 2007 #1 Tmagic650 TS Ambassador Posts: 17,233 +234 Did you have the drive properly installed in it's metal frame before installing it in the laptop compartment? There has to be something in the bios telling the system that it has a hard drive. You might have to boot up using a CD with XP or floppy boot disk. Any new drive needs to be formatted and an OS has to be installed on it Mar 7, 2007 #2 nealdarty TS Rookie Topic Starter I have tried to boot up using windows xp and get the message windows did not detect any hard drives and then the computer trys to restart. I have tried the drive with and without the drive caddy and I even took the bottom off the laptop and made sure the drive was seated all the way in. As for the bios I have looked in every option and only found one option that related to hdd and that was hdd aucoustic mode. Moderator Edit: Read: Dell Bios Password removal.
