No drive detected

All of a sudden today, my Dell Insprion E1705 froze and then went to "disk error". It gives me error code 2000-0141, which is "no drive detected". I cannot get it to recognize the hard drive. What can I do?

    I tried pressing delete whn starting up, but it just gives me multiple "disk error" messages. When I was able to run diagnostics, it said it could not find the hard drive.

    I don't have an extra SATA hdd, so I guess I am going to have to pay an exorbitant sum to have someone do all this.

    I have confirmed the death of my hard drive. I have a replacement to install, which I will tackle tonight. I found out why it happened...I moved my laptop from my study to the kitchen without first turning it off. Apparently that kind of movement can cause your hard drive to crash. Thank goodness I have been using Carbonite.

Try inserting another SATA hdd (hope you have an extra) and see if your laptop computer detects it or not.

if it does, then your old hdd is confirmed to have totally crashed

if it does not detect still, then you are faced with a bigger problem which is the board.

    By the way.

    Accessing the bios for the Dell inspiron 1705 you need to press F2 upon boot up and not DEL key.

Hey koko

can you try to restart your laptop and try to go into BIOS..

press delete when your laptop is starting up.

when your already in BIOS, look for the booting sequence. you must determine that your harddrive is recognized at this point and make it a primary boot.

post back for any more questions ok.

Dell insprion 5315 error code0f00:0244


This looks like a problem with your hard drive. Have you tried running any disk check software to make sure that the data on the disk is not corrupt?

Error message: Pri Slave Hard disk A S.M.A.R.T. ERROR has ben detected


Your hard disk might be dead due to sudden power cut or may be a shock on the hard disk while it was working due to an accidental hit on the c.p.u. You can give it to a computer mechanic to test the drive if its working or not. If not then you may check its warranty period and if its over you have no other option than replacing it. I also had the same problem with my hard disk.

Dell Inspiron Error Msg 2000-0141 cannot detect Hard Drive


You might have a hard drive crash, Meaning the hard drive needs to be changed out in it.

This happends over time,heat,AGE and all other sorts of occurances. Hard drives to not last! period! The only fix here is to have the hard drive replaced with new. Now in this model the hard drive should be on the bottem of the unit under a cover. you take a screw driver and open that hatch and take the hard drive out. You can bring that to a local best buy or computer shop and have a replacement put in Around $89-150 bucks depending on size you get and brand.

Thanks I hope this helps you out please do be considerate and leave postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today.
