The drive needs to be formatted. I assume you can see it in the BIOS but not the OS?

Dell Optiplex 260 IDE hard drive dead. Would like to replace it with external Sun Brite hard drive. Windows 2000 installation stopped because it couldn't gain access to ext. drive. Says that special...


Windows 2000 cannot access USB drives for installation.
You need to replace the dead drive with a new IDE or PATA drive. That machine will not accept an SATA drive.

OptiPlex GX150 series. Diskette Drive 1 Seek Failure. Primary Hard drive 1 Not found. Secondary Hard drive 1 not found.


Sounds like a hard drive failure. It is fairly easy to purchase a new hard drive and put it in, but then you must have the software to re-install everything. If you are a bit concerned about doing these things, take your PC to a PC Repair shop and they will install a new hard drive and put a new operating system on it. Depending on how old the Desktop is, you may want to buy a new PC as the old motherboard may fail on you in the next 6-months to a year. Check your gut on this.

I have a dell optiplex and the hard drive has been removed how do i get new hard driveto run tried to install windowsxp disk failed on restart would not find hard drive HELP


Did you replace the old hard drive with a new one?
Check the connections on the drive itself. When you plugged the new one in, there should have been two cables you plugged into it. 1 small one that goes to the motherboard (called the SATA cable), and one wider one which comes right out of the power supply. If either of these is not plugged into the hard drive, you would get a message that says "could not find drive".

Check your connections and try again. If they're ok, then write back with as much detail as you can provide.

Good luck!

My Dell Optiplex GX60 will not recognize the Hard drive I have just installed


Search the net for the answer. Dell have a irritating need to used a winchester drive utility to setup new drives. This is downloaded and installed onto a 3 1/2 inch floppy or if your lucky a cd.

My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"


No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.
