If you have the "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were shipped with the computer, you can use them to reinstall Windows to the "factory" settings.

If you no longer have those CD-ROMs, contact Fujitsu, and order a replacement set. $20 ? $20 for courier-shipping?

Sata Hard drive errors and Raid errors


See this answer

Reboot your system and hit F2 as soon as you see the Dell startup screen (the options are F2 for setup, F12 for boot sequence).

In the System Setup screen, do these steps.

Select Drives:
Make sure your Diskette Drive (3.5 floppy) is set properly (Usually set to Internal)
Make sure that "Drive 0: SATA-0" drive is set to "ON"

Go to "SATA Operation":

Your system proabaly came set to "RAID Autodetect / AHCI" - THIS SETTING CAUSES YOUR SYSTEM TO GO INTO AN IDE LOOP AND DOESN'T ALLOW IT TO FIND YOUR FACTORY INSTALLED SATA DRIVE.

CHANGE THE SATA OPERATION SETTING TO "COMBINATION"

Reboot - make sure that the boot sequence is set to CD rom before HD and make sure that the reinstall CD is in the drive. Setup will load, hit enter to reinstall XP. Your HD should now be detected and you should see the licensing agreement.

If you have your files backed up I reccommend deleting the partition and reformatting prior to installing XP, it will give you that option after the license agreement.

Once you have successfully reinstalled the OS, Dell reccommends that you change the SATA Operation setting back to RAID AUTODETECT / AHCI (or back to whatever your factory setting was) to avoid any problems with other IDE devices installed on your system.

How to solve boot failture.


Boot failure will be displayed if the computer cannot find the operating system on a bootable device.
Your hard drive could be defective or the computer bios is not setup to locate the drive due to lost information from a possible dead backup battery or a power surge. To resolve the problem you need to find out what type of hard drive you have for example MFM, RLL, SCSI, IDE, ATA, PATA, Enhanced IDE or SATA. With a SATA drive, you do not have to worry about jumper settings, which are the newest of the hard drive interfaces. You need to start your computer and read the system prompts to enter the set up bios (example: Press Del to enter System Bios). Once you are in the system bios you need to select boot devices. Make sure the drive with your operating system is selected in the boot devices. If this will not work then you may need to reinstall the Operating System. I would buy a new drive if you can afford it and install the operating on the new drive so you may be able to recover some of the data. If you do not care about the data you can reinstall the Operating System on the current drive. If your drive is not recognized during the installation then the drive is most likely bad. If you reinstall the Operating System on the new drive then you can install the current drive as a second drive to recover previous data. If you do not have a SATA drive you will need to change the jumper settings to operate as a slave drive. If the data from the old drive is not accessible when install with the correct jumper setting then the drive will need to be repaired or discarded.

Xp installation problem


“No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting

I am trying to replace hard drive with a larger one in a acer extensa 5420. Going from a 120Gb SATA (Vista pre- loaded) to a 320 GB SATA. Also having problems loading vista ultimate on new drive.


if you want you can try using acronis. its fairly simple and can handle your transition to the larger drive. are you upgrading to vista ultimate?

to handle the clone, download the acronis and it has a trial 15 day version. have a usb to sata connector available, you can pick this up for about 20 dollars at most computer places. turn on your computer normally and attach the new drive to the usb connector and let it load up in device manager. then from there load your acronis, in acronis select the tools/utilities and select clone hard drive, leave everything standard and it will start the process, it will ask you to reboot and from there clone your existing hard drive as is only on a larger partition size now. if you are comfortable with acronis you can change partition sizes if you like to suit you. what kind of problems are you having with vista ultimate?

I have a dell dimension4700, trying to replace the hard drive.


ata is a big flat cable whereas sata is a newer thin flat cable. it really depend on your motherboard and if it accepts them. if you could plug it in then it means that it accepts the connection. you can use any harddrive as long as it has the ata or sata connection and also if it can plug in to the mobo (motherboard).the windows insatllation may not be recognising the newer drive or the original one. make sure you have the jumper pins on your original drive set to master and the ones on the new drive set to slave. then as the pc boots up repeatadly tap the delete key and you will eventually go into dos. in dos go to peripherals or boot devices (different with some) , it may be called something else but find the boot sequence and set your cd drive to 1st boot device then your old harddrive to 2nd boot device then 3rd to your new drive. or if you have a floppy drive you can set that to first and then cd to second and master drive to third. if you want to only use the new harddrive then you will have to set it as master on the jumper pins and then 2nd boot device in dos after your cd drive and floppy drive. then you would have to do a fresh install of windows on the new drive and not use the restore disk.then you would have to transfer your files off your old drive which you would have to set as a slave drive on the jumper pins. if you do a fresh install of windows then you could download it. if you still have problems then write back. if you do get it to boot up it may not recognise the new drive, i would recommend checking the jumper pins on the harddrives and then reinstall windows. and format your new drive.

I have lost the scsi drive on a dell 1600sc and would like to convert to sata. During boot up the sata controller is reconizing the 2 hard drives but, come but with "no primary drive found"


The best thing to do is reinstalling SCSI, SATA can only manage two disk per channel on this server, and the data transfer time is longer.

If you set SATA, check jumper settings, that is probably reason why you get no primary drive.
Also check bios settings , do hdd auto detect and save in bios if you want to use sata.

If instead you want to go back to SCSI, download the drivers from the link below.

Download page from Dell.

Computer wont start


Have you tried doing a system restore? This will pretty much wipe the entire hard drive and reinstall the original factory settings and software. To get to the system restore screen turn the laptop on then as soon as you do that press the F8 key, then follow the instructions.

This again will reformat the hard drive and then reinstall the original system/settings, just as if it were out of the box.

I ahve a lg p1 laptop but i have lost the original image cd. I have tried to reinstall windows xp of a xp inatallation cd but it keeps saying it can not find the hard drive. Can I download the recovery cd...


Sorry and thanks for the prompt reply

P1 Express Dual

the information on the bottom of the laptop is:

model: LGP1
Config: P1
Manufacturer: LG Electronics

Thanks you for the reply: What model and MFG is it?
The reason it does not see the hard drive is probably the hard drive is a SATA drive (serial drive). Xp will not see the dive unless you have the SATA driver disk.


Can you suggest what I need to do to reinstall windows or download the image

Am I asking to much for a basic step by step process.

Thanks again
