Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook ?

No HDD Detected

\015 My inspiron 1300, when powered on, says NO BOOTABLE DEVICE. I went into diagostics, ran the test, and got an error 1000-0141 No HD Detected. The HDD is a 80gb fujitsu, less than 6 months old and when I replaced it with my factory HDD, the laptop booted up normally. Is it just a bad HDD, id so how do i get my data back?\015
