Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
On start, I get "Primary hard disk drive 0 not found. No boot device available. No bootable devices." Any ideas
Hi, I don't have a solution but I get this error, but it does it without me knowing, my laptop can be on for alittle while and then I can walk away from it for a few seconds to go to the kitchen and have a small glass of water and then come back only to find that the laptop somehow restarted itself and has that error up on the screen so I turn the laptop off for atleast 2 hours, and then I turn it on and it reads it again but I already know that it's slowly starting to go and I'm backing up as much as possible before replacing the hard-drive.

If it used to start up OK, then the hard drive is probably broken and needs to be replaced.
If you're adding a new hard drive, it may need to be partitioned and formatted. Insert your Windows CD, and start up off that, and run the Windows setup. It will format and partition the drive for you.

Is there a hard disk installed inside the computer? try reconnecting it.
The motherboard, the hard drive, or the connector could be faulty in this case.
Remember to unplug and remove battery if you open the laptop, the hard drive is in most cases in the bottom under a cover with few screws or in some dells its on the side with few screws and comes out from the side instead from the bottom.

Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.
