Get message internal hard disk drive not


This may mean that your computer is trying to boot from a non-bootable drive. Try hitting f12 when you restart the computer and select which drive would have your OS on it. You want to change the boot sequence to diskette drive as your 1st choice. The order should be Diskette Drive, Internal HDD, USB storage Device, CD/DVD drive.

I have reseated the hard drive in my inspiron 1525 laptop and it still says internal hard disk drive not found. what can i do?


Hello,
You might need to borrow another hard disk drive from your friend or relatives and try it on your laptop. If it still does not work, then we can assume that the laptop needs repair with the hard disk drive port.
Hope this helps in resolving the issue...

My laptop wont start up..its saying "internal hard disk drive not found..To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive.." NO bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility or PRESS F5 to...


This message it telling you that the PC cannot "Find" your drive. This usually happens if the drive has failed or the "Boot Track" has been corrupted. Well,I suggest, to try all the "Options" first, press F1...If it boots all good... if still no good... then press F2 and make sure the Hard Drive shows in the setup. If it does NOT show there, it is probably best, to then run the diagnostics, but I am fairly sure at this juncture it will tell you your hard drive is kaput, and you will need to replace it. If it does show up, then we need to fix the boot track... insert your Windows DVD and do a repair,and running the Fixboot command from recovery console.

Internal hard disk drive not found


This is due a hard disk failure or setting changed on your bios. Insert the Win CD and check the status of your disk or use some utiluty program to check the hard drive.
