The BIOS, which handles the initial start up of your computer, cannot find your hard drive and thus cannot boot your operating system (ie, Windows). Open up your computer and confirm the power cable is firmly connected to the hard drive and that the cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard is firmly secure. If both of these check out, then try downloading this bootable CD on another computer. This CD, among other things, has a few hard drive utilities that will help further diagnose the problem. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Finally, if the utilities on this CD are unable to see the hard drive itself, then is may need to be replaced. Try testing with another hard drive or another cable to connect it to the motherboard.

check your harddrive, is it detected in bios ?
if no, it could be motherboard or hdd, but most of the time is hdd problem, so just replace it.
if yes, your operating system is corrupt, so you can reload your operating system.

This error comes up if the computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Power off the computer. Power it back on and tap the number 2 key 4 - 5 times at the Dell logo screen. This will take you to the system setp screen. Check if you see any thing listed next to solid state drive. If you dont see any thing try reseating the hard drive. Here are the steps to reseat the hard drive..
If you see an entry next to the solid state drive. You'll need to reinstall windows on the computer. If you have been shipped XP you will need an external CD drive to reinstall windows. If the system was sen with ubantu try to download it to a usb drive and boot off it.
Rate if useful.
