Your PC cannot acces the Hard disk drive. You can try unplugging the cables connected the hard drive and reconnect it, then try powering up again. If ti doesnt work, sorry to say your hard drive could be defective

    a loose connection to the hard disk of a laptop pc is very unlikely. I would have to say your Hard Disk drive is defective.

How do you run CHKDSK /F with the blue screen stop error on my desktop?


You MUST have a boot device like CD, DVD, or USB. Use the install disc to access command prompt, by choosing the repair option. You could also download and burn a boot CD like Hirens.

The other option is to remove the drive and attach it as a slave or USB to another computer.

SATA Primary hard disk drive failure


Sounds like your hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced. You will need to make sure you have all the recovery cd/dvds Dell sent with the system; or you created when you got the system. The new hard drive will be completely blank, so you will have to install the OS, drivers, and other software from these CD/DVDs.

Hope this helps

Boot selection failed cause of a required device is inaccessible


The problem you are dealing with may be because of the fact that you have your BIOS settings modified (its a little program that comes installed in your computer that chooses which piece of hardware to start up with).
To solve this issue make sure you have your computer turned off first and have all devices (like iPods and flash drives unplugged) and try to reboot. This may solve your issue.
If not:
Step 1: Turn on your computer and look at the very first screen that pops up. There should be a brief message on the screen that might say F2 (or some other button) would get you into the boot menu. Most manufacturers have F2 or F4 as the button to tap. So as soon as the computer starts tap either button immediately, over and over again until the screen changes.
Step 2: You should now be in the BIOS (for most users its some plan text screen that has a blue background). Navigate your way to the BOOT submenu. From there choose to have your hard drive as the boot device.
Step 3: Save settings and exit
Step 4: You should now be able to load Windows. If not, you may have selected the wrong device. Repeat steps 1 - 3 with a different device listed, until there are no other devices to choose from. If the problem persists, you may have a dead hard drive - at which point you will have to get your computer repaired.

The proper boot device is your hard drive, when you boot hit F2 while it is booting up and it will bring up the screen to change boot devices select the hard drive and save the settings and this should work if it dont it is possible that your hard drive has bit the dust.

MY WINDOWS 2000 WONT BOOT UP (BLUE SCREEN SAYS INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE MESSAGE. TRIED SAFE MODE AND LAST KNOW GOOD SYSTEM (NO LUCK) PLEASE HELP. MY BUSINESS INFO IS IN THIS COMPUTER. THANKS KEVIN...


Unfortunately, it sounds like your hard drive is out. Or the boot track has been damaged. You can try a repair using the win 2000 cd. Read the following link :


http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic8356.html

Since it is your business computer, I would advise that you have the hard drive removed from the unit and have your data saved, before attempting any action.

1. Please start your PC with power button. At the very first screen, at the left down corner, you will see the button to be pressed to go to Setup i.e. Bios of the PC. For most of the PCs , it is delete button. For some of them, it is F2 also. So, after starting the PC press Del to go into setup.

2. After you enter setup of the PC, please go to Advance bios setup.

3. There you select Boot device priority.

4. here the first boot device priority should be CD ROM, then the HDD. Please see the instructions given at right down corner and select this priority.

5. After you rightly selected boot device priority as given above, Press F10 to save the changes and then press F12 to exit.

6. Now the PC will restart again, but be sure that you put win XP cd in the drive before it restarts.

7. Now you will see a note that : press any key to boot from CD ROM, so please press any key.

8. The PC will boot from the CD ROM now , now you can follow the instructions given on the screen.

On my screen, I have "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt" Windown/System32/Config/System. You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup...


Try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 while the system is booting.

Once in safe mode, use system restore to restore your computer state to an earlier date when this problem was not present.

Thanks
