Having problems with your Dell Latitude C640 Notebook ?

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable

\015 Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable devices\015

Answers :

Try running a test on the SYstem by Shutting the system OFF and while it is off, Press and hold the Fn key and keeping it down, Turn on the System. It will initiate a test on the system Which will ask you to press y if you get colorful bars on the screen. Then it will run a Short-DST test. That is a HDD test and if it fails then you need a new HDD, it gives an error like 014x (X can be a number 2,3,6) , If it clears the test or gives 0146 , just need to reinstall windows.But before you reinstall windows please Reseat your hdd once.

Hope this Help.
Cheers!!!!
Did you do diagnostic on the Hard drive yet? if you did and error come up that mean your hard drive is shot up.
