There is a chance that the place holding the HDD could have gone bad.. Try to take the HDD off and reinsert it.., If still not working.. Could be a faulty motherboard...

My samsung r510 hdd has been locked. When i start the laptop it display no operating found and when i start xp setup there is no found any hdd and in the bios hdd is available


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

could be a dirty graphics card you might have remove the graphics card and clean the socket

also check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge
hope this helps you

there are a few things that could cause this but here are the first two to look into before the last and worse case

your power adapter may have died. you need to have it checked. if it is ok then you porbably damaged the jack. if the jack is ok well then your motherboard has an issue. either the board is damaged or another problem exists.

Hi Lofimodernis

Regarding your inquiry unsing a USB 2.0 external or HDD enclosure is basically used to connect a laptop HDD to another computer to be used to extract or back up files on to new HDD or another device. regarding with the error 2000 0146 as far as i can remember as a technician when it comes to dell laptops it would really be a HDD replacement

Hope I have answer your inquiry about the USB 2.0 external enclosure

How do I replace the hard drive in my Dell


Did you format the drive before installing it on your laptop. Some laptop will not detect unformated hard disk. Try to format the hard disk somewhere else and check to see if the laptop detect it after.

Is there any adapter neccesary (or is it even possible) to make a SATA hard drive compatible with a laptop that uses an IDE hard drive?


Basically not internally. About the only way to do this would be if the hard drive was an external hdd. Hope this helps.

Dell latitude e6400 hard drive failures - is this a trend? I've had 2 out of 3 hard drives in 3 e6400 laptops purchased at the same time about 6 months ago.


have you tested the hdd? i believed dell system has quick test for ram and hdd. try this one, turn off system, press and hold on the Fn key then press once the power button while holding the Fn key. a quick test will appear to check the integrity of the hdd. if the hdd failure after the dell logo then like msgs such as no device found just try to reseat the hdd. this will not void your warranty since the hdd is a customer replaceable unit according to dell terms.

Dell inspiron 5150 primary hard drive disk 0 not found


You may find that either the cable is not connected properly or is faulty, or the worse case the mother board has problems (driver, chips, breakages)
May even be a power supply problem, as the power supply has many output points and different voltages that the HDD power out may have blown. If it has then the rest of the system will appear to be ok.
So first off, check the cables connections on the motherboard, and look for any breaks in the cables, and if you have a power meter of some sort check the power connection, or plug in another power connector, the ones with the same end are generally the same power outputs. The ribbon cable for the HDD should have 2 sockets for HDDs and you must connect your HDD to the end one.

Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!

Dell latitude D600 problem


The flashing caps lock is an indication of a failed POWER on Self-Test (POST)

Remove the HDD, Battery, AC adapter, RAM and Modem

Press and hold power button for 15 seconds

Connect AC, see if you get any beep codes. If you do, power off, disconnect power, insert RAM, connect AC and reboot. If system boots, power off and add hard drive. If it doesn't, replace the motherboard.

If the system boots with RAM, but fails to boot with HDD, replace HDD 1st.
