Dell XPS 17 L702X :: Hard Disc Not Detected

Apr 14, 2013

Problem: Chucked a hot sugary drink over my DELL XPS 17 L702X laptop (accidentally!)

Actions Taken: Mopped up quickly and let Laptop dry out.

Initially Laptop booted and I managed to email 2 important documents to myself (must be more religious with my backups).

Laptop started making a whirring noise (Hard disk problem?)

Keyboard "interesting" and will need replacing

Rebooted laptop and get to Blue Boot Menu

Perform Diagnostics and get the warning (!) No Hard Drive Detected - all other tests (including memory) PASS

Have tried booting from my restore disc - but, unsurprisingly no Hard Drive Detected

Have removed Hard Drive and carefully and gently cleaned with cotton cloth

Replaced - same problem

Have tried Hard Disk in second HDD slot - same problem.

My plan is to buy a new Hard Disk (along with a Key Board)....

Dell Inspiron N5050 crashed and upon boot, I got this black screen. Upon seeing this, I did a diagnostics test.

I have a Dell N5050, still under warranty. I was using the laptop tonight when it started beeping and shut down. I restarted and again had the beeping for a few seconds.

I ran BIOS and passed all tests except that the hard drive was not detected.

HP Pavilion 15 P080ca :: Hard Drive Not Detected In Win 8 - BIOS Errors / Unable To Recover

Aug 28, 2014

I purchased a new Pavilion 15-p080ca Windows 8 laptop from tigerdirect.ca and received it a couple of days ago.
 
The computer had randomly rebooted during working on it, I remember having read an IO error message in a windows popup. Since then, it continuously reboot, tries to load windows, fails and reboot until automatic repair kicks in.
 
Bios system log has many warnings/error: 03F0, 03F1, 0021.  I got about 3 times a hard disk not found error on POST.
 
I am unable to repair the installation whether from the recovery partition or from recovery discs,  I get "The drive is locked error" or "Automatic repair could not repair your pc".

Also recovery manager can't find the recovery partition. On command prompt, diskpart does not list disk;  "There are no fixed disk to show".
 
However, Ubuntu live cd and Mini xp are able to see every partitions, show files and read them,  a fast HDtune read test shows no disk error.

The computer is able to read from hard drive since I am able to get on recovery and windows tries to load until I get the "Your pc ran into a problem that it couldn't handle and it needs to restart"
 
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics SMART test passed, Short DST returns Warning.  HP diagnostic smart test returned "no hard disk installed" message one time.
 
Anything Windows 8 based, whether recovery disk, original media are not able to see hard drive.  
 
I tried booting recovery disk, recovery partition with every combination of Legacy support and Secure boot to recover the partitions without success since the hard drive is not detected (from diskpart list disk command).  From the recovery dvds I get a 0xefffff08 error. I also tried to remove the recovery partition thinking it could want to recover from it to get things faster.

Dell :: Latitude E4300 Second Hard Disk

Jul 18, 2009

Is it possible to install a second hard disk in E4300?

Earlier the option used to be available whilst configuring the E4300 online to add a second 1.8inch hard disk. Now it is no longer there. Can the same be ordered through a Dell rep? What exactly is it that comes when you order this?

I will be grateful if someone can share this info. This will be the deal maker/breaker for me on the E4300.

Dell :: Added Second Hard Disk Studio 17

Jan 15, 2009

My Studio originally had a Toshiba, 5400 rpm 250 gb drive in it.

I bought a Western Digital 7200 rpm 360 gb drive to add to my laptop.
I also got the carrier assembly from Dell and I installed the Western Digital into the Studio 17 in drive bay 1 , and put the Toshiba into Drive bay 2.

I had made an image of my C drive with Vista on it, and after installing the new hard drive I put the image onto the Western Digital drive, and all seemed to be well, I booted up and get into Vista, but now I see the C:

local hard drive shows exactly what I had before, and Vista is showing my new drive as Drive F: but it also has all my files on it exactly as the original C image that I made .....

Dell :: XPS M1530 Motherboard Does Not Recognize The Hard Disk

Jan 24, 2010

My motherboard on a Dell XPS M1530 (configuration below) does not recognize the hard disk.

I checked the hard drive and it is working well so I concluded it is the motherboard. I need advise on how much a new motherboard would cost, which motherboard I need, and whether it is worth going through a repair/replacement.

I gave the laptop (it is out of warranty, but with the cause being water damage the warranty would most probably be void anyway) to a repair shop and they want $349 to attempt a repair or $149 to replace it with a new one (this does not include the cost of a new motherboard).

I was looking for one on ebay, however I am not sure if it will be compatible with my configuration.

I would appreciate if anyone who had the same problem or experience with a similar issue can provide any input. Here is the configuration: ...

Dell :: XPS M1730 Internal Hard Disk Not Found

Nov 30, 2009

I am having a problem with this beast. I was playing MW2 and suddenly, the laptop stopped responding. The whole thing was just frozen. Nothing I could do but press the power button to turn it off.

After that, I turn it on and got the message: "internal hard disk not found To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive No bootable devices-- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics."


I was thinking about "reseating" the hard drive but do not dare to do so. What could it happen if the laptop just sat on the table all the time. Under it is a cooler. I did not even touch the keyboard ( I use a wireless one). Any idea how to fix it.

Dell :: Additional Hard Disk In Inspiron 1720 Will It Fit Into A Studio 17

Apr 22, 2009

I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a second hard disk I bought and fitted myself. If I get a Studio 17, will I be able to fit this hard disk into the second bay in there? As far as I'm aware the disk itself should be okay, but the caddy might be slightly different for that model - is that right? If so I'll just buy a new caddy or modify this one - otherwise I'll be 100 down for this hard disk!

Dell :: Procedure To Replace A Hard Disk And Install Vista
