Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

Internal hard drive not found dell inspirion - Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

Answers :

Try re-booting the system in safe mode and go to my computer->manage->hard drive..try to refresh it from there.
Go into the BIOS and see if the Hard Drive is detected by the BIOS. If the drive is not there than it might be a dead drive or motherboard issue. If the drive is detected in the BIOS it may have become corrupted and you may be able to run a hard drive partition program in dos to repair it. Use the program to delete the partition,then re-activate it, and then format the drive. Just be aware that all you information on the drive will be lost. You can make a bootable cd-rom disc from windows then put it in your cd-rom drive on your laptop so you can run dos commands. You may need to change the boot sequenc in the BIOS so the cd-rom boots first. Otherwise you may need to replace the harddrive.
