Shut off the pc completely then open the cpu machine.then in that just remove all the wires connected to the hard disk also remove the power supply wire from the mother board then again reconnect the wires properly.also clean if any dust u can see on the mother board .and then ON the pc and check out .if same error then the hard disk has to be replaced to solve the problem.because either the hard disk is corrupted or having some internal problem.if its new and under warranty get it replaced.the company will provide u the replacement.

Restart your computer as soon as it switches on, press [Delete] or [Enter] repeatedly (once every second) until the blue BIOS screen appears. Use the cursor keys to select the Auto-Detect Hard Disks option. When it finishes a few seconds later, go to 'Save & Exit' or 'Exit & Save Changes'

And once again reboot .
Hope this helps .

When that happens , it is often because the hard disk is damaged and must be replaced.

    the problem is not the monitor, but the computer.

    The hard disk fail can be logical or physical.

    When the disk data inside the computer gets corrupted you say you have an hard disk logical failure.
    You fix this reinstalling the system and eventually formatting the disk.

    In this case, if the disk format is fine you reinstall windows and can recover your data.

    When instead the disk has an electronic or mechanichal fault, the hard disk failure is physical.

    In this case the hard disk (and the data inside ) cannot be easily recovered.

    The disk must be replaced, and the system installed into the new disk.

    This job can be done at a local repair shop, or calling a technician.

    If the computer is under warranty , call the manufactrurer.

What causes the machine to display messages like primary hard disk drive 0 not found. primary hard disk drive 1 not found. strike the f1 key to continue, f2 to run the setup utility?


The system cannot find your hard drive. Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case, then remove the cables that are plugged into the hard drive and plug them back up. Reboot and see if it recognizes the drive.

If not, you can try the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Probably the hard drive is dead. Did you drop it recently? Anyway, it could be just the connector, if your good with hardware you could open it and check. I would suggest you to use the warranty though.

Primary disk drive not found


Check the connection of your hard drive and make sure it's plugged properly On The Motherboard.

Is this a SATA drive? Has it ever operated properly? If worse comes to worse, you'll have to reload windows from scratch.

Can't access hard drive getting IDE master hard drive SMS mess


You are getting a SMART error indicating that the hard disk drive is/has failing/failed. Likely, the only way to get data off the drive is to send it to a data recovery center, then install a new hard drive. Data recovery is generally expensive, but if you are interested you can contact places like DRIVESAVERS 800.440.1904

Strike F2 to go to the bios to run the setup utility

Don't touch anything , save and reboot

If primary hard disk still not found

reboot press F2 to re-enter the bios

Look for Auto Detect Hard Disks

if the computer shows a hard drive is detected

set the drive to LBA if possible

save and reboot
