Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
I turn on my computer and I receive this message:
Drive 0 not found:Serial ATA, SATA-0
Drive 1 not found: Serial ATA, SATA-2
Drive 3 not found: Parallel ATA, PATA-1 (PRI IDE Slave)
Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility
When I strike the F1 key I get this message:
No boot device available
stike F1 to retry boot, F2 to set utility
It work fine Sunday evening, I came home from work Monday and this is what I get. Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.
You may need to replace your hard drive. But it's adviceable you ask a technician to support you since its a little technical.

Make sure your HD Cables are all firmly plugged in, and that all drives are starting when you turn on the computer. You can tell with harddrives as they will slightly whine, and have a small, steady vibration to them. If they are all starting, and all cables are fully seated, check in your Setup utility that the drives themselves are Auto-Detect. If none of this fixes your issue, you may have to refer your computer to a computer repair shop.
Hope this helps!
