My dell windows hard drive won't turn on .. It's was working now it won't turn on there's an orange light inside the box we can see but it won't turn on

The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this. Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

My p c tower was turned over now it will not work

First check your cables. Are all the internal cables tight (especially the ones connected to the hard drive)? If this computer has SATA connections, try moving the SATA connector to a different port on the computer. If all of these fail, try a different cable (a new one or removed the one from the optical (DVD) drive if it is the same as the hard drive). If this fails it is more than likely you have had a hard drive crash and will have to purchase a new hard drive. Keep in mind the new hard drive will be completely blank. You will have to reinstall your OS and software.

Coding that no hsrddrive found

Go into the BIOS reset it back to defaults. Then save and exit. The computer will redetect the hardware in the computer. If it still doesn't redetect the hard drive, turn off the computer. Unseat and reseat the data cable and the power cable to the hard drive. Then go ahead and turn it back on. If it still doesn't see the hard drive then thats because the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

Windows wont start. dont know how it happened.

press F2 to go to the system setup, then press arrow down to highlight Standard CMOS feature, then press enter. Verify if the hard drive is detected, mostly it is installed in SATA 0 and you should see like a serial no of the Hard drive. If the hard drive is not detected, you might need to reseat the cables of the hard drive inside the computer. Make sure that all the cables at the back of computer is unplugged to be safe. After you reseat the hard drive cable, plug cables at the back of the computer then turn on computer and press F2, verify if the hard drive is detected, if still not, try to swap the connection of the hard drive and the dvd drive of the computer. Plug back the cables and turn on comp and press again F2, this time the the dvd drive should be on the SATA 0 and hard drive should be on the oter SATA port. If the hard drive is still not detected, you need to replace the hard drive, but if the hard drive is detected on the other SATA port and the dvd drive is not detected on SATA 0 then you need to replace the mother board.

Shut down your computer. Turn off the power for your external hard drive and disconnect from the computer. Boot up the computer and then plug the hard drive back in and turn it on. Does your computer find it?
