There could be a problem with your hard drive. I would try another one if possible.

Make sure all the connections to the Hard Drive are tight and secure. Then see if it will boot. If not then try loading a windows cd and see if it detects the Hard drive. If it does not the hard drive is no good if it does try running the automated system recovery you may have a corrupt MBR file.

SOURCE: How to remove the hard drive from my dell

Hi there.
Firstly remove the power cord from the back of the desktop, then turn the unit round so the back of it is facing you, on the right hand side there may be a couple of screws and plastic catches, remove the screws and lift the plastic clips so the side panel opens up, once that is done you will be able to see the motherboard, the hard drive looks like this >>>>>e340c2b.jpegnow depending on the type of dell you have there maybe screws or green plastic strips that holds the HDD in place, if you cannot get it that way then the front panel has to be removed.
If this is the case post back and I'll tell you how remove it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.



Regards.

I have a Dell 2400 Desktop that all of a sudden won't access the login screen. It powers on then the hard drive makes noise with the green lights blinking but it then says press F1 to continue but


First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Can i make a bootile usb for dell dimision 2400


If the BIOS setting for the Boot up device order does not have the USB as a boot up device then it is not possible to boot up your computer with an USB device.
For a Drive 0 seek problem -
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Your computer cannot find a boot-able storage device, i.e. hard disk drive, to boot from. Either your hard disk drive is defective or the OS (operating system software) is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

I have a dell dimension 3000 series desktop and when I turn it on it does not get passed POST and tells me the following: primary drive 0 not found primary drive 1 not found gives me the option of F1...


This normally means that the Hard Drive is not recognized, and most likely can be attributed through a crashed hard drive. If it's not POSTing, then I think you need to look for loose cords/cables as well. That can cause the hard drive to not be recognized.
