Question about PC Desktops
After my move to UK from US my Dell 8250 would not boot and gave me this messages - Primary hard disk drive 0 not found. While trying to boot the hard drive made a clicking noise. I tried the system on 110 power via a transformer and directly linked to 240 power - switching the voltage input at the back of the computer. Upon multiple boot attempts, I even got a software error message. Any suggestions before I send to scrap!!!!!!
IT sounds like the hard drive went bad, especially with the clicking noise. If you want to keep the system, you will need to buy a new drive (relatively cheap) from tigerdirect or newegg and istall it. NOt sure if dell still send out recovery cds with their systems but if you have one just insert the cd after you install the new drive and follow the prompts. If you do not have one contact dell support and they should beable to send you one
