    Default Jayfunks Hard drive not detected Help Plz!!

    Hey guys... Sure do need your help here. My old XPS Dell has stopped loading saying that a certain file is corrupted. So when I try to do anything with the Windows XP cd it always says that there is no hard drive detected and it is unable to continue. I went and got a new one and still i am getting the same error. The only thing I can think is that the Sata cable is faulty, or the psu is not giving it power. Ive tried several things in the bios but to no avail.
    Dont know what to do please help. Thanks so much in advance
    Jay

    Do you know what 'certain file' you are referring to as being corrupted ?

    Anyhow did you check your Bios to see if the new HD is listed?
    and are you setting the pc Bios to boot from cd as the first boot device ?

    If you installed a new hard drive you will need to reinstall Windows as well as all the Dell drivers.

    My aunt had a Dell, she brought it over with the same exact symptoms............. You want the bad news now? It was a bad hard drive. I bought a new one and put it in and no problems Jay. I did have a bad sata cable once and it would stall booting to windows. Try a different sata port.

    Download a copy of Hiren's BootCD 13.0. Burn it off onto a disk, and use the tools on there to scan and try to recover the drive. What tool you use will probably depend on what brand of HDD she has in her system.

    Another alternative that would be a better choice, would be to buy a copy of SpinRite 6.0. This is a tool that every geek should have in their tool box. It will find any bad sectors and repair them. This process can take many hours depending on the size of the drive, so don't expect this to be a simple scan and be done in 2 hours. If it is a bad hard drive, there is a high chance that she will still have all of her data available, and the drive will be recovered.

    Yes, SpinRite costs $90 if you've never bought it before, but after fixing to or three drives the investment will definitely pay for itself. Much better to be able to keep all of your data, than paying to replace a hard drive.

    Thanks guys... However even the new drive isnt being detected. And yes it is showing up in the bios. You see how this doesnt make any sense? Maybe something in the motherboard or something wrong with the windows CD? Im really stumped and would like to avoid taking it in to a tech. Aaaarrgg

    try to fdisk it sounds like it may be a bad drive, I just had one die on me. It still showed up in the BIOS and in windows but can't be accessed and can't be formatted in windows it self.

    @ smduff:

    If you still have that drive around, burn a copy of GParted. Its a Linux Live CD used for partitioning hard drives. Should allow you to get the drive reformatted.

    @ JayFunk:

    Do you have a HDD to USB Adapter? (Like this) If so, try using that to load it onto your machine. Also try the Windows 7 Repair Disk.

    As mentioned before, make sure you have set the bios to first boot device = cd drive. You should then see "Press any key to boot from CD", if the Windows CD is bootable.

    At that point does Windows files start to load?

    That's odd with AMD. You may have to install chipset or disk drivers before completing Windows installation.

    Did you try resetting your CMOS? I recently had to reset my cmos when my bios was inadvertantly registering a CPU temp over 85C and wasnt allowing my PC to turn on for more than a couple of seconds. I had to remove the battery on my Motherboard for 30 seconds and the bios boots in its original form. If your bios is either corrupt or in some way has been edited to cause it to not register devices properly then I would recommend at some point trying to reset the CMOS. Just use your fingernail to push back the metal clip holding the battery in. There should be 2 slides holding it in, one moves the other is stationary. Just don't use anything metallic like a screw-driver to pull it out. Best of luck!
