Question about Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
I replaced the battery. i got an error message saying floppy disk drive not present. tried to disable all floppy drives as i saw as a solution on another site. after doing so, got an error message saying hard drives could not be found. please help! still paying on this computer but warranty is expired.
turn on your computer when you see the dell logo press f2
once in the bios screen check drive and see if your hard drive0 will give you your hard drive details at the lower right side of the page
you can also do some diagostics by pressing f12 when you see the dell logo and go to diagnostics. if it passes that means there is nothing wrong with your hard drive.
if the hard drive appears correctly
be sure that the drive0 is in sata or sata is highlighted on the right side of the screen

Replacing a laptop battery should not make a drive all of a sudden not appear.
You will have to enter the BIOS of the computer by hitting the required key stated at the first screen when Turning on the computer (usual located at the very bottom, it's almost always F2 or Tab or Delete)
Once in the BIOS the very first screen visible to you should tell you the drives hooked up to the machine VIA IDE or SATA. See if your HDD is located there.
