Had a problem with my drive getting on internet installed new hard drive now can not boot up dont see drives


it sounds that you have problem in the mother board, you can hooked up your drive to other pc as slave just to ensure if it will read. if ok, then their is no problem in your hard drive also with other drive.

My Dell Dimension 2400 refuses to load Windows XP


Hi,
What happens?Does it hang on the loading page or does it restart itself before loading?
If it hangs on the loading page,press CTRL,ALT and DEL.This boots the system.
If it restarts itself,remove the hard disk and re-fix it again.Problem solved?
Remove the CMOS battery and the hard disk and re-fix them again.Problem solved?
If not,you may have to repair your operating system.
This how you do it:-
  • Remove your hard disk and enslave[fix it as a secondary drive] it on another machine with a good operating system.
  • Start the machine.Accept to run unnix[using two drives]
  • The machine will automatically detect your hard disk's failure on the operating system and repair the damaged files.
  • On completion and after Windows opens,turn off the machine and remove your hard disk.
  • Fix the hard disk now on your machine and start it.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

My primary drive 1 an 2 not found how do i fix this


well primary drive is the hard drive from which the OS boots so if it is not detected PC cannot boot so check exactly which drive is not found and you can also check the power cable to the drive which is not found and make sure it gets the power .

good luck.

Dell Dimensions 2400 Primary Drive 0 Not Found


For this problem it only means that the Hard Disk of the computer is not being detected

Try doing the ff:
  • reseat the IDE or SATA cable of the Hard Disk
  • Clean the port where the cable is connected (make sure that the computer is unplug)
  • reboot the computer
  • if problem persist contact computer manufacturer
Hope this will help
Thanks

Before I start my dell dimension 2400 computer up, I have to disconnect my usb mouse and usb keyboard because if I don't I will get these 2 errors, Primary drive 1 not found and Secondary drive 1 not...


The resolution for this is to go into the BIOS with the help of F2. Then look for the option USB Legacy devices. If it is enabled disable it or vice-a-versa. Also look for Boot from USB devices. Please disable that option. And select the first boot device to be the HDD (Internal hard drive)

Hard Disk failure


Try to run CHKDSK from command prompt, and if that doesnt work, its probably corrupt / hard to recover

Dell2 2400 BIOS F2 reads backwords.


It sounds like you may have the IDE cables hooked up backwards on your motherboard.. The IDE cable slot on the motherboard labled IDE1 should be where your Hard drives are if you want them to read as primary. The Optical drives are usually on IDE2, designating them as secondary.
Let me know if you need more help.
