Question about Dell Latitude C800 Notebook
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.

The first thing to try is removing and reseating the hard drive. Sometimes the drive just looses it's connection with the motherboard, reseating can resolve that.
If that doesn't work, you can get a 2.5 in USB hard drive enclosure, and see if you can read the drive in another system, and recover you files that way.
Most likely though is the hard drive has failed. If this has occurred, then your options are limited. You can contact a data recovery service, but that is expensive. Http://www.ontrack.com or http://www.drivesavers.com are a couple options. You can contact them and get an estimate of the cost if the other options do not work.

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.

If you press F12 during bootup, you should get the boot menu. Run the hard disk diagnostic. If the hard disk is bad, you will get a DST Short Test Error code.
Replacing the hard disk in a D600 is a piece of cake though so if you need a new HD, it's easy to do. The tedious work will come afterward.

Reseat both the Hard Drive and Optical drive and see if they detect. If they do not, then a HDD failure is most likely. The I8000 is quirky in that if the HDD fails, the Optical drive will not work.
If reseating doesn't resolve, Replace the HDD and the optical drive should work. (Controller is a serial design and neither drive will function if the other fails)

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.
