Dell Inspiron HDD problem

Post by Scorch on Sun Apr 15, 2012 11:02 pm

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop that is about 2 years old. Today when I powered up the system, I received an error message: Internal hard disk drive not found, to resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive. No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diganostics.

I tried reseating the drive, no change. I ran the onboard diagnostics, and I get a Hard Drive DST short test error. "Test Results - Warning Msg, hard drive, no hard drive detected."

There was no warning before this happened, so I guess my question is: What is the most likely culprit? Hard drive failure, motherboard?

The computer is well taken care of.

Thanks!

Most likely culprit would be the hard drive.
