Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop
I have a Dimension 8300 on day just quit . It beep 2 times and have an errow on the screen “ SATA prim drive 0 not found strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup”
I called dell tech we went through every thing that he think of by replacing the SATA data cable on the back of the pc the diagnostic lights ABC are green but the D is yellow the tech indicated then I have bad hard drive so I went a bought new one I installed it still having the same problem.
I called Dell tech again this time she indicated that perhaps I have bad motherboard so I went bought a new on I installed it as will. I powered the pc I still having the same issue.
I replace everything as I indicated I am afraid that if I call Dell tech this time they may ask me to buy a new case.
Anyone there may have any idea? I am latterly stumped. I truly appreciate any comments.
Have you tried settings defaults in bios, and making sure the hard drive is plugged into sata0 controller on the motherboard?
