Try to get a screwdriver and take of the small backpanel at the back of your laptop, take out and put back the hdd, if it's a contact problam that should do it.
If HDD is dead than use your warrenty or buy a new one at your local store, they'll even fit it for you sourely.
If the HDD is fine and the OS turns out to be dead than try to boot from OS install disk if you have any and see fi you can reinstall the OS, for that maybe you'll need to change the boot sequence in bios to boot from CD/DVD first.

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.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable


Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.

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.

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.

HDD prob


The machine should recognize that there is a hard drive there, if it doesn't then the hard drive has crashed or failed. You will have to replace it.
