Dell studio xps, error code 0f00:1332 after installing new graphics card

Bought a new graphics card for my dell studio xps. The graphics card being installed is a XFX R6770. After installation I booted the computer up. Everything seemed fine except the resolution which I expected to have to change. After it installed the drivers I had to restart the pc. Since then it will not boot the OS. I get the error code 0F00:1332. From what I have found out most people say the hard drive needs to be replaced but I would like expert advice since I ran into this problem after the graphics card install. Thanks,

    Just so I'm clear you are talking about the hard drive correct? Do you think it's just a coincidence that the hard drive failed after installing new graphics card drivers?

Sounds like the drive is dying. Replace it.

    Yep. Now, you could pull whatever you added back out and see if it makes any difference. Otherwise, your hard drive probably just coincided with the hardware change.

If you are installing a new hard drive, it is possible that you have not connected the cables correctly. Check if these are seated firmly in the corresponding pins.

SOURCE: installed new hard drive now will not boot

1. First of all, you must open the computer case (with power off), and werify the power cable and data cable of hdd. please detach and put them right back.
2. then power on your pc
3. you MUST press F2 for setup utility in order for correct setings of your bios. the message "strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility" came from the computer bios, not from Windows XP CD.
4. verify if you followed the correct procedure of installing an new hdd as is described on page 66 of owner's manual from dell.


"Installing a Hard Drive
1 Unpack the replacement hard drive, and prepare it for installation.
2 Check the documentation for the drive to verify that it is configured for your computer.
3 Remove the hard drive bracket (see page 64).
4 Attach the hard drive to the hard drive bracket:
a Place the small bracket tabs into the drive-securing screw holes on one side of the drive.
b Gently swing the drive toward the bracket and align the three screw holes on the other side of the
drive with the screen holes on the bracket.
c Attach the hard drive bracket to the hard drive.
d Insert and tighten all three drive-securing screws.
5 Install the hard drive:
a Place the two bracket tabs into the drive slots inside the bracket for the additional hard drive.
b Swing the bracket forward so that it is flush with the bracket for the additional hard drive.
c Replace the bracket-securing screws.
6 Connect a power cable to the drive.
7 Connect the data cable to the drive and to the system board (see page 53).
8 Close the computer cover (see page 75).
NOTICE: To connect a network cable, first plug the cable into the network wall jack and then plug it into the
computer.
9 Connect your computer and devices to electrical outlets, and turn them on.
See the documentation that came with the drive for instructions on installing any software required for
drive operation.
10 If the drive you just installed is the primary drive, insert a bootable floppy disk into drive A.
11 Turn on the computer.
12 Enter system setup (see "System Setup" on page 80), and update the appropriate Drive option.
13 Exit system setup, and restart the computer.
14 Partition and logically format your drive before you proceed to the next step.
See the documentation for your operating system for instructions.
15 Test the hard drive by running the Dell Diagnostics (see page 36).
16 If the drive you just installed is the primary drive, install your operating system on the hard drive."

that's all

hi! try this. reboot your cpu, then press the CMOS setup key (del), then select load default setting, then go to hard disk detection settings, select the LBA setup. I believe you know how to manipulate the CMOS setup configuration. if still doesn't work out, bring it to the service center near you and ask for assistance, Im sure they would love to help you. Have a nice day!

Hello Wademyd,
It seems that the installation CD that you have is not a bootable CD.. must be old one.
Please down load the boot disk for windows from http://www.bootdisk.com or follow the Microsoft article link given below:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994
Do not be intimidated by the article, although it looks big but there is very little that you need to do, rest of it is general instructions like where can you order a new CD from etc...
OR
Simple solution is to borrow Bootable Windows XP installation disk and install it using the serial Key that has been given to you.

Please let me know if that helps and please rate the solution if it helped you.. it will not cost you anything but will make a difference for me :)

All the best and kindly let me know in case you need any further assistance.

Regards,
Srinivas

Which is best to buy? dell inspiron or studio?


Studio 15 vs XPS M1530

We specced a Studio 15 for $1457 on the Dell site (the official starting price is currently $1,149), to get it closer on paper to Dell's XPS M1530. We also specced an entry level XPS M1530 for $1798.

We're not entirely convinced the $300 step up to the XPS M1530 is a must.

Major differences are processor and graphics. On our Studio 15 we have Intel's Core 2 Duo P8400, vs the T8300 on the XPS M1530. The P8400 has a lower clock speed at 2.26GHz chip vs 2.4GHz for the T8300, and has 3MB cache (same as the XPS). On the other hand, the P8400 is a 25watt chip, vs 35W for the T series, so in theory it's more battery efficient.

The Studio 15 is also on the new Centrino 2 platform, and has a 1066MHz FSB, vs 800MHz for the XPs.

The other major difference is graphics. The entry level Studio 15 gives you the choice of either Intel's integrated graphics (4500MHD), the better choice for battery life, or 256MB Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450. The XPS eschews integrated graphics in favour of 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT.

Both notebooks come with internal DVD combo drives, though there is a Blu-Ray option on the entry level XPS. The XPS also has an integrated mobile broadband option, which wasn't mentioned on our Studio 15.

The Studio 15's Centrino 2 platform and solid spec stack up well against the entry level XPS M1530. It seems the XPS' advantages here are mostly in terms of its sleeker design, and slightly lighter weight (2.62Kg vs 2.77Kg for the Studio 15).

Studio 15 vs Inspiron 1525
We also configured a top end Inspiron 1525 for comparison. Our spec included Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 (same as the XPS), the same 1440x900 scren as the XPS, 3GB RAM (same as Studio 15), and 320GB HDD (same as Studio 15). Bluetooth and wireless n were add-on modules, and there was no dedicated graphics option, only Intel's older generation X3100.

With the older Centrino platform, older graphics, and without the LED screen, our Inspiron 1525 spec came to $1527 - actually more than the Studio 15.

In this comparison, the Studio 15 stacks up as the better buy, and it's also solid value against the more expensive XPS. If you're looking for a solid mid-range laptop, we recommend you place the Studio 15 on your shopping list.

I hope this helps to make your choice.

Depending on the main board, 6 beeps usually signify's either a RAM issue (like a bad connection or incompatible ram) or an expansion slot issue so check any other cards you may have installed and make sure that The new RAM stick is compatible with the main board.. The main board model code is printed on the main board. Use it to search for audible fault codes, or go to www.upgrading and repairing computers.com and search for the beep codes for the main board on this site. Also, try reseating all the RAM sticks and expansion cards, especially graphics card..make sure you have not dislodged any data connectors and double check everything..
