When I turn on the laptop ...it says the dvice in the system modular bay can not be identified


Did you ever solve the non-recognition problem?

My C840 fails to recognize the/an extra HD in the modular bay, after I "overfilled(??)" it.

What to do to regain access to information stored on HD that the computer no longer recognizes? (Other components, including other HD's continue to work ok in the modular bay).

I need solution


Ok, this is a misworded error message on dells end. this laptop does not have a modular bay instead it has a locked in disc drive. Based on what i have seen on other dell laptops i would have to say the cd drive is going bad. To test this try removing the cd drive. Power the laptop on and push the eject button then power the laptop off. Flip the laptop overand there will be a screw to hold the drive in, this screw will be close to the center and will be the only screw in a square hole, remove this screw. Now if you followed my directions, you should have the drive out. Pull the tray out as far as it will go then grab the two sides closest to the laptop and gently pull it out. If you are having problems you can stick a flat screw driver in the square hole and push the piece of metel to the side to remove.

Now power the laptop on it may say something about there not being a cd drive(optical drive) if it does not say: "the device in the system modular bay cannot be identified" then you need to replace to CD drive.

It won't boot to the os


The modular bay refers to the optical drive (CD drive). There is a small screw holding it, I've had machines at my shop that this screw fallen out and the drive wasn't making a good connection. Be sure that the drive hasn't slid out a bit. Take it out clean the connection and put it back, making sure it's seated properly. Try this, then let me know, and we'll go from there.

This screen comes up when it is turned on: "The device in the system modular bay cannot be identified, etc.


I had the same problem.  I took out the optical drive, and powered it on, and it worked.  I may have to purchase a new optical drive?

CD drive casusing problems


Since the CD drive is not being recognized, here are my suggestions:
1-Reseat the CD drive. In other words, remove it from its docking bay and plug it back in.
2-If that doesn't work, reload the driver for the CD drive.
3-If that doesn't work, replace the drive.
4-If that doesn't do it, you probably need a new motherboard.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating.
Thanks you, and have a super day!
