Make sure the hard drive is connected to the ide cable that has a blue end. Don't connect anything else to this cable. when the pc is booting up watch the screen for the option to enter setup usually Del, or F2. Once into the bios see if the boot options are set to cd first and ide 0 second. You can also see if the hard drive is being detected in the bios.
Hope this helps. Let me know.

It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

It sounds to me like the on-board HDD controllers are dead. Have a look at the motherboard... I'll wager you'll see a fried capacitor right in the middle. Common Dell failure :(

I would check to make sure that the video card is seated well in the mother board. If it has a fan on it be sure that it is turning when you turn the power on. Check all connections to the card and the back of the monitor
