This system has onboard RAID, sometimes it is simply because the RAID controller is in error, to get it out of error:

* Disconnect the power cable
* Hold power button for 15 seconds
* Release the power button
* Plug in power cable
* Start the computer

If this does not work, please provide information, is is Windows XP or Vista?

I entered my restore disk after receiving message on hard drive on the dimension 9150. Got message


Hmmm, what concerns me is that your system BIOS is not discovering any of your SATA Drives, That sounds like an Issue in your motherboard not your OS. I would go into your BIOS settings and look for a link that says reset bios to factory defaults, then try and boot again without the recovery disk. Please keep me posted on what happened if this does not we will trouble shoot more.

A well meaning~idiot teenager changed my set up on my Dell Dimension in BIOS to Intell ARRAY.. now I cannot bring Windows up


If the well meaning teenager took a non-raid configuration and created a RAID array, then any data on the drives was destroyed.

If you reply with the RAID array and HDD status information from the boot screen (THE intel Raid Controller will report the status of the array, degraded, normal or Failed and the status of each HDD member or non-member disk.) With that information I MAY be able to assist in getting the system to boot

If it is ME or XP, tap the f8 key rapidly as you boot and it should go into safe mode. You can do a restore from there.

Raid failure


Not a lot of details, but here is some basic information, assuming you have a Dell with Integrated RAID

Dimension 9150/9200 and XPS systems have RAID, depending on the model the exact troubleshooting differs. At boot, after the Dell screen, you should get the RAID status listing. RAID 0 will either be normal or failed. Raid 1 can be normal, degraded for failed.

If the RAID array was RAID 0 and one of the drives failed, then all data is lost and you'll have to create a new array then reinstall Windows and drivers

If the RAID array was RAID 1, then you may need to add the new drive to the Array, CNTL+I or CNTL+N at boot (Depending on the system model) add the new drive to the array and reboot. If the system still will not boot to Windows, then you may have a software error too with the OS.

If during troubleshooting, the array was broken in the RAID BIOS, then the array will need to be recreated and Windows/Drivers reinstalled.
