My laptop says strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for set up utility, Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics.f5
What ever I do it just says cant find hard drive.
F2 gives me a bunch of options ,settings, system configuration and several other things , but nothing helps.
Has anyone any idea how to get my laptop working again?
It worked until yesterday. I had plugged an external hard drive in and after that it quit.
Thanks, Neil

Hi @xcaret

Is there a chance you can boot your laptop into BIOS Setup Utility and check if BIOS can detect the hard disk drive.
You can also run onboard diagnostics by pressing f5 and tell us the result.

It looks like hard drive has died do you have warranty if you do you should contact Dell tech support.

FreeBooter is most likely correct in that the HDD has failed but can I ask that you confirm that the HDD is not detected in the BIOS, this is important to know as a HDD becoming disabled in the BIOS somehow would result in you getting the same error message, see canned info below;

Is the HDD detected in the BIOS, a Seagate HDD will begin with the letters ST and a Western Digital HDD will begin with WD, other brands vary and please note that any mention of a HDD in the BOOT sequence that is not labelled with such letters is only the boot order and not the BIOS detecting the presence of a HDD.

Thanks for the help . No the harddrive was not detected anywhere you mentioned.
I just finished smashing it and removing the hard drive to see if my tower pc will recognize it, I have it hooked externaly . Oh I had a second laptop the same as the one that didn't work , I smashed it too. I guess because it was just one I used occasionaly and had no stuff on it I wanted. I'm going to hook it's hard drive up to my tower to see if it shows anything.
Sorry to have wasted your time folks.
I think Ill stay with this old HP compact tower for a while.
Neil
