Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
My friend brought me this computer that would not recognize the hard drive. I figured it was bad so I got a new drive and it still will not recognize the drive. I have been reading about f2 setup mode and a driver that needs to be installed. I cannot locate any issue within the bios or the driver on dell's website.
I don't know how old the Dell is but I have not seen a BIOS setup routine that did not automatically find and recognize a new hard drive for many years. Perhaps the BIOS is the source of the problem. Did you try the removed drive in another system? Did you check the CMOS backup battery? If this needs to be replaced, it may not recognize much of anything.
