Question about Dell Latitude C640 Notebook
Suring start up i am getting this message "invalid configuration file, please run start up" after a few minutes i get this message "no physical harddrive found" in the bios it does not detect the hard drive , i fear that my hardd drive has gone bad. Any expertise on this , anyone ??
Blues, The first thing I would try is to remove and reseat the hard drive. With the laptop oriented with the cover latch towards you the hard drive is on the left of the laptop towards the front end. -Flip the laptop over and locate the hard drive carrier door. -There is one screw holding the drive in place, remove it. - Lift the hard drive door up until you hear a click. -Slide the hard drive out of the computer. -Reinsert the drive and push the hard drive until it is fully seated in the hard drive bay. -Reinstall the retention screw. If that doesn?t work then you either have software corruption problems or hardware failure or both. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
