Just go a new internal hard drive for my Dell Inspiron 1545 because my last one crashed. I plugged in the new hard drive and started the computer and it loads with the dell screen. But then it goes to another black screen. This screen says "internal hard drive disk drive not found to restore this issue try to reset the drive" I have reseated the drive 3 times and still comes up. When I hit F2 and go to system info under primary hard drive it says none. I have loaded the defaults. I have done a diagnostics test and it can't find the hard drive. Please help, do I need to bring it somewhere to check the wires? If so how much would that cost? I already spend 40 on the new hard drive.
Dell-Ravi Should I back up my hard drive before I do this? This process won't delete anything off of it right? Thankyou for the response

I have a dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop and when I turn it on a black screen pops up saying "internal for multi core processors will be disabled" "No bootable devices-- strike F1 to retry boot. F2 for setup utility. Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics." When I press F1 the same message pops up. When I press F5 it will run the test and everything passes. Except it says Msg: Hard a drive - no hard drive detected I have already taken the hard drive out and placed it back in "reseating it" but that didn't fix the problem. When I press F2 and go to setting, general, system info, my hard drive appears under "primary hard drive" I don't know what I should do. Should I buy a new hard drive? And then take my old hard drive to a place to get all my old data off of it? I have read a lot of forms online, youtube and Google and a lot of people have the same problem with no solution. I can not get to safe mode or get to my desktop in windows. Thanks for the help!
