You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

SOURCE: problem with dell optiplex 620 keyboard and mouse

the first thing you need to check is if the same keyboard and mouse is working with another pc.if it doesnt then replace the keyboard and mouse.if they work fine on the other system then go to start and right click on the computer option and then click on manage,once you have done that click on device manager.now look for universal serial bus controller and expand the option by clicking the plus sysmbol beside it.once you have done that right click on each of the usb root hub and click on uninstall.once all of them have been uninstalled.close all the windows and restart the pc.now it should work fine.

SOURCE: Dell optiplex will not recognize hard drive

Is it SATA or IDE? Have you tried another cable? If it's IDE, have you checked the jumper settings (usually Cable Select is easiest)?

Enter the bios by pressing F2 during the first seconds of the boot. Then look for "restore to factory settings".

I have a dell optiplex gx 620 i install a new harddrive put the os cd in it said no boot device,i put in the dell boot cd it booted the computer up it got to A> prompt and stop loading what do i type in...


First put your Windows CD in the drive.

While booting, the screen should offer you a couple of choices - Enter "Setup" and tell you which keys to press or "Boot Options" and again which key to select.

Try Boot options first, and choose to boot from CD. It will revert next time you boot.

If you choose or have to enter "Setup" . Usually achieved by pressing the "Delete" or "F2" key look for and change your boot options to select you CD drive first but make sure you put it back later.

You may have to re-boot a couple of times to find the commands I mention, they do flash through fairly quickly.

I need to remove a hard drive in a GX620 - where is it?


Open up the machine and look under the dvd drive. It's tricky to get out so take your time or you'll do some damage.

Check your BIOS. If it rebooted chances are it might work if you change the way the BIOS sees and boots the devices. Try rebooting without the flash drive in. What happens?
