    First of all why dell??????????

    sorry but i cant stand dell, they just give you things you don't need!

    Anyway to the point, HD not found: -

    Well first of all i am assuming your dell Collect and return has expired, is it an old laptop unit? I am not famillar with the dell internals, but i have seen some others.

    There are two possible things: -
    1) Your hardrive unit is knackered!
    2) Most likely, the HD unit has become dislodged from the socket, this happens if the laptop is moved around (as you would), what you will have to do is locate were the HD is installed, sometimes you can access it from the underneath, or by removing the batterey, and try re seating it

    if it is possible try it in a desktop unit using a 2.5 to 3.5 convertor cable to see if the HD is alive! if you can and have a very understanding friend try it in thier laptop, a cable will then not be required.

    More details on laptop model and age would be helpfull
