When prompted again hit F2 as the bios clock may be incorrect, which means your cmos battery needs changing, reset the time and save, exit for a re boot. Take the side off the pc and look at the motherboard for a flat disc shaped watch type battery and replace if required.

you can try this steps to resolve your issue:
1. clean your disc drive with white cloth and alcohol
2. try to re-install the OS
3. if this won't work try to download another boot disk like EBCD
or ask a friend to create you a boot disc and try to boot your computer with it.

- This can rule out or confirm a Bad Windows OS disc, thus let's you install you Windows OS in the process.

No boot device

Your CPU isn't recognising your hard drive. If it is a lap top, check to make sure u didn't accidentally loosen it, there is an unlock button on bottom of some laptops that unlocks your hard drive. If that isn't the issue, then some how either the plug came loose or your drive is corrupted. There are many ways to fix it, but recovering data will be difficult. If there is data that you must have, you will have to replace the drive(or use a friends CPU) and get data recovery software. You can also just bring the drive somewhere like best buy geek squad or other reputable CPU repair man to have it recovered. If you do that, they will sell you new drive and recover all data possible and restore CPU to factory settings.

Check your BIOS, by pressing F2 and see if the hard drive is recognized. It should indicate the MFR next to the hard drive listing. If it's not there, then you might have a bad hard drive. If it is there, try re-installing the operating system with the set-up disk. You can also go to the Dell website, enter you service tag number, and get technical support for your particular laptop. It might have a recovery partition in the hard drive to recover to factory settings.

Primary disk drive not found

Check the connection of your hard drive and make sure it's plugged properly On The Motherboard.

Is this a SATA drive? Has it ever operated properly? If worse comes to worse, you'll have to reload windows from scratch.
