You may find that either the cable is not connected properly or is faulty, or the worse case the mother board has problems (driver, chips, breakages)
May even be a power supply problem, as the power supply has many output points and different voltages that the HDD power out may have blown. If it has then the rest of the system will appear to be ok.
So first off, check the cables connections on the motherboard, and look for any breaks in the cables, and if you have a power meter of some sort check the power connection, or plug in another power connector, the ones with the same end are generally the same power outputs. The ribbon cable for the HDD should have 2 sockets for HDDs and you must connect your HDD to the end one.

Go back to setup and check your boot sequence. It may not be looking for your hard disk. Do you know what Hard disk you have? It may not be wired in there properly if it's in the boot sequence. Set DVD/CD to 1st boot device and put in your installation disk. Do you boot now? Do you have data on your hard disk you need? If not, Re-format the drive.

Call Dell if under warranty. Start shopping for a replacement hdd if outside of warranty. You'll need
your OS disks that came with computer (hopefully). If you don't have OS/recovery disks, you can get
them from Dell or even using somebody elses (match version with sticker on your laptop).

Check the hdd connection underneath laptop - make sure cable is not loose, etc.

Probably safe to say your data is gone unless you're willing to spend $$.

Dell 8250 Hard drive 0 not found after move from US to UK


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

Do you have any flash drives or external drives connected? If so unplug them and try to reboot. If not check to see if the hard drive is firmly in place sometimes they can come un hooked and that error will appear.

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found


The first thing to try is removing and reseating the hard drive. Sometimes the drive just looses it's connection with the motherboard, reseating can resolve that.

If that doesn't work, you can get a 2.5 in USB hard drive enclosure, and see if you can read the drive in another system, and recover you files that way.

Most likely though is the hard drive has failed. If this has occurred, then your options are limited. You can contact a data recovery service, but that is expensive. Http://www.ontrack.com or http://www.drivesavers.com are a couple options. You can contact them and get an estimate of the cost if the other options do not work.
