Do you have any flash drives or external drives connected? If so unplug them and try to reboot. If not check to see if the hard drive is firmly in place sometimes they can come un hooked and that error will appear.

    Look under the bottom of the case it should look simmular to this

    Remove the screws there will only be one or two. then carefully push on the bottom of the hard drive to make sure its firmly in place.

No diagnostic utility partition found to run diagnostics


Think about this for a min.

The Primary hard disk cannot be found by the System.
The Diagnostic Utility is ON the Primary hard disk.....OF COURSE IT WON'T FIND IT...

Since the motherboard is not able to even detect the drive as being present, there is nothing YOU can do to get it 'going' unless you replace the BAD hard drive with a new one.

[PS: I hope you've backed-up any important data....]

My dell leptop refus starting i got message : Primary hard disk drive not found , CDBOOT ; Memory overflow error


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Older dell latitude cpx running XP. yesterday after loading firefox and a few mozzilla add ons .. today I boot to error 0 no primary hard disk found.. bios says no hdd installed ????


Hello, Jay.

Well, as the message indicates, your hard disk drive is failing or failed. Try running your diagnostics to verify (boot and press F2 or F12 repeatedly).

If the hard drive is failing, see if someone locally can help to retrieve your documents and other files by removing the drive and setting up the drive as a slave drive on another computer.

The drive would then need to be replaced. Price the same type of drive but it may not be cost-effective to use another drive in this computer.

Hope this helps.

No bootable devices-strike F1 to retry boot,F2 for setup utillity


Is there a hard disk installed inside the computer? try reconnecting it.

The motherboard, the hard drive, or the connector could be faulty in this case.

Remember to unplug and remove battery if you open the laptop, the hard drive is in most cases in the bottom under a cover with few screws or in some dells its on the side with few screws and comes out from the side instead from the bottom.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found


Hi Kenneth,

If you just bought the laptop, then it is still covered by a warranty. Then all you have to do is contact the seller or directly to dell. This is the fastest and most appropriate way, and usually you will get one-to-one replacement (they will replace your laptop with new one). But, please make sure by contacting Dell.

Regards,

dC

[Repost] Can't start windows


Ok i had the same problem today:

firstly check to see if the HDD is on its own IDE channel (ie. not sharing with another IDE device such as a CD-Rom or DVD drive)

if yes disconnect the Optical drive or other device on the IDE channel and boot and if it still isn't working change the IDE interface used if this still doesnt fix the problem.

Boot with the Windows Install CD and see if you can do a system repair / chkdsk , if the HDD is still not detected you possibly have a problem with your motherboard / HDD

to determine if its the hard drive if you have another HDD spare which you can try boot off give that ago and if it succeeds your other hard drive is failing time to get a new hard disk.

If you still have no success time to look for a new computer or get it changed under warranty if you still have it ?

Can't start windows


The issue you are having is that your computer is not seeing the harddrive or the boot drive. This could be a simple fix from the bios by telling the computer what device it needs to boot from which in this case is your hard drive.

You say that it did work and it was working how long ago was that? It also could be more serious in which you hard drive has crashed or exceeded its MTBF (which means "mean time before failure").
