I am about to shoot myself.  One day my computer was working the next, It tells me there is a hard drive error then finally it decides there is no hard disk to be found.  I have tried fiddling with all the connections and as a last resort want to reformat it.  However, when i try and use a boot disk the computers doesn't enter dos.  I still get the annoying ' no hard disk found' message.  I am not a computer whiz - can anyone help.

Hi,

Have you recently installed any new hardware?

The motherboard's BIOS needs to recognize the drive before any utility can 'see' the drive. If the connections are right and no new hardware (e.g. cdrom drive) was installed, then try to auto-detect the hard drive in the BIOS (usually <DEL> key during system power up).  If BIOS doesn't recognize the drive, it may have failed on you! Sad

Does the drive spin up?
