Using the F12 Diagnostics
* Reboot and press F12 to enter the Boot Menu
* When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
* The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
* If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
* Press any key to continue
* Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
* After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -
Express Test = Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part
Extended Test = Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically
Custom Test = Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run
Symptom Tree = Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing
* When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen

SOURCE: Internal HDD hard error

By your description it is very likely your hard drive finally failed. You probably looking at total data loss unless you have made recently an backup of it. You will have to get a new HD and then you can install your OS and software.

Another more remote possibility is that when you opened some covers, you accidentally disturbed the HD connection causing this problem.

Just for clarification, was there a lot of dust inside ?

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: no boot sector on internal hard drive. No bootable

Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

Regards,
Jeep Brainy

SOURCE: Won't turn on

No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: i have no picture. all

It would appear that the hard disk has failed and because the BIOS cannot find a drive, it is getting confused and continually resetting.
Fit a new hard drive and install your OS. Don't forget you will need to install all drivers that are not included on your OS disk.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: internal hard disk drive not found To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive. No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics.

it looks like your hard drive has crashed but before i confirm you need to try these steps first.1:remove the hard drive if its a SATA make sure the connectors on the drive and laptop are clean, if not clean it. if its an IDE check for any bent or broken pins.2: connect your hard drive to another pc or laptop using an external cable and if it is detected try and retrieve as much information from it as possible and format it with the quick format option deselected.3:if you dont have an external cable to connect it after you have physically cleaned the hard drive, mount it back in the laptop and check to see if it still gives the error. if it does run a windows installation setup from a disk and see if it recognises your hard drive. you can then format it from there and reinstall the operating system on it. 4: if non of the above methods dont work you should consider replacing your hard drive.

Hi ajmedina89,

If your system wont boot up and has a no "bootable devices" message, is often caused by a defective harddrive. I recommend to try a different HDD before replacing your system HDD to isolate the issue.

Hope it helps.

Check your BIOS, by pressing F2 and see if the hard drive is recognized. It should indicate the MFR next to the hard drive listing. If it's not there, then you might have a bad hard drive. If it is there, try re-installing the operating system with the set-up disk. You can also go to the Dell website, enter you service tag number, and get technical support for your particular laptop. It might have a recovery partition in the hard drive to recover to factory settings.

Restart the computer, and read the first message (white text on a black background), hoping that it says something like "press F1 to enter BIOS setup, press F12 to select boot priority".

If it does, press F12, and then select the CD-ROM device as the "bootable" device.
