Question about Dell Latitude E6400 Notebook
Have you tested the hdd? i believed dell system has quick test for ram and hdd. try this one, turn off system, press and hold on the Fn key then press once the power button while holding the Fn key. a quick test will appear to check the integrity of the hdd. if the hdd failure after the dell logo then like msgs such as no device found just try to reseat the hdd. this will not void your warranty since the hdd is a customer replaceable unit according to dell terms.

Yes it is a trend, my company purchased over 1000 of these horrible units and continuously we have to replace the failed drives. All seagates. From the D series with their faulty video cards they didnt admit but finally did and extended the warranties (unpublished) to another year, to the E series and their cheap screens and harddrives. We will never buy Dell again. We are talking about millions lost because some empty head at Dell didnt QA properly.

You can have them alter the bios so that it won't show hard drive errors when you do the diagnostic test. Then you just wait for the drive to fail with error code 0146. Doh!
