Question about Dell (9K646) ATA Controller
Please i changed my bad hard disk, and in rebooting i get this msg DRIVE 0 not found what should i do? press F1 to continue and F2 to go to SET UP.
The first thing that you need to do is press F2 and go into the setup. The system may need to "discover" the drive so that it knows what is there.
There is usually a section for auto-detect on hardware and then it should find the drive listed. Then save the new settings (usually pressing F10 to save and exit) and then see if it boots up properly.
The computer will then boot up and should come up. Since this is a new drive, the system will not be able to start, since there is no operating system on the drive.
You will need your Windows CD handy so that you can re-install the OS and then go from there.

make sure there are no disks in your drives
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
