Question about Dell Dimension 4300S (Refurbished) (4300SB8BZ411) PC Desktop
I don't have the total solution, but I will tell you this, don't hit restore unless you are fully backed up and you have confirmed your back-ups. I had the same problem - dead hard drive, hit restore and it wiped out any chance I had at recovering the files I had not yet backed up.
I am assuming you have tried to do a safe start, if not, that would be the first place I'd start. A lot of times this will set things right.
Beyond that however, the computer mfg support should be able to walk you through opening the bios and checking to see if the hard drive is functioning. If not, it will have to be replaced.
