Question about Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook

1 Answer

No HDD Detected

My inspiron 1300, when powered on, says NO BOOTABLE DEVICE. I went into diagostics, ran the test, and got an error 1000-0141 No HD Detected. The HDD is a 80gb fujitsu, less than 6 months old and when I replaced it with my factory HDD, the laptop booted up normally. Is it just a bad HDD, id so how do i get my data back?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and when I turn it on it tells me NO BOOTABLE DEVICE DETECTED This happen one other time and I rebooted my computer and it came back on but it did not work this time what can I...


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"
There 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 hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard.
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.

Bootable device has not been dectected


When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

Did a defrag and after 2 hours computer went black. did diagostics says error 2000-0146 please help


Hi,

The error that you mentioned is about the HDD of the laptop. If you can contact a local tech to removed the HDD and maybe back up all your files is very much recommended. You will need to reimage the HDD and worse than that, you maybe have to replaced it.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

'No bootable devices


No bootable devices = the hard disk appears empty, either Windows was corrupted or the hard disk has died.
Reinstall. If the install fails to complete or the problem comes back the hd is dead = replace it.

Will not boot up


From what you describe, you may have a HDD failure. The Inspiron 8000 has a serial bus for the IDE drives and if one drive fails neither will work (If HDD Fails, the CD drive will not read)
Reseat both the HDD and Optical drive and make sure they are detected in BIOS. If HDD is not detected, replace it.

Installed a new hdd after my dell 1300 kept saying no bootable device and no hdd found now still says no bootable device restore cd wont start ether.


Have you tried accessing the bios and resetting it to factory default settings? Sometimes this will get the laptop to recognize the hdd. Otherwise, it may be either the connection isn't secure, or the bios has become corrupt and you may need to update (flash) the bios

I got the below error ... is it possible tot ake my backup from the HDD?


A 0146 error means that the hard drive has a failing sector, and the drive will need replaced. If it's operable, then back everything wanted or needed up, because it will fail completely if it hasn't already.
