That almost certainly means your hard drive has crashed.

You can swap it out with any 500gb and below SATA laptop drive. Right now Best Buy has a 250gb drive for only $50, or you can get a smaller drive from NewEgg.com for next to nothing.

Just swap the drives, turn on your PS3 and follow the steps on the TV and you're back in business.

Hope this info helps!

there is problem with your hard disk. your hard disk wire may be loose. try to remove and refix all sata wires of your hard disk.

Ps3 cannot start hard disk not found


The hard disk may be faulty. Try reseating the hard disk if the PS3 still cannot find the hard disk then it is faulty and a new hard disk is needed and the PS3 software needs to be installed on the new hard disk.

Dear Friend,

Have you consider to replace your hard drive?. That might be a good possibility why your PS3 can not start the way it should. Try that and see what happens.

Good Luck!

Cannot load operationing system because of fault saying, "no hard disk found in this computer"


Check the data cable. Make sure it is fully connected. (Sometimes they come loose). Check all connected data cable's & power cables within the system. Start with the new drive you installed. Unplug the data cable & re-connect. Follow it to the motherboard & do the same. If no cable seemed loose than replace the hard disk drive's cable with a new cable. Standard 80-conductor Ultra DMA IDE/ATA interface cable. See below;

ab2779a.jpg When you start up the dimension 4600, enter the bios, watch your screen at start up. You will need to press F2 or F10 key to enter the bios.
Once in the bios check that you hard disk drive is shown.
Most bios will list the drive by its model number. If you see the model number of the drive chances are you can save & exit the bios. Button up the case. You should be able to load windows.

Luck!

No operating system found


This is caused by :-
1. Your hard disk has failed.
2. Your BIOS settings for the hard drive has been altered
3. Your hard drive has been wiped or someone or a virus program that has deleted critical files.

Go into your BIOS setup to check the hard disk settings, if possible see if it will auto detect the hard drive.

Also boot up with a DOS disk run FDISK to see if you can detect a hard disk, partitions etc.

If the hard disk appears OK you may be able to do a disk repair, most likely you would need to re-install the operating system and the laptop drivers for video, audio, LAN, modem etc.
