Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

Will not detect harddrive

\015 My B130 laptop is hard to get into the startup and boot menus. It absolutely will not go into either setup with a HD installed. Without a HD it will even start loading windows XP OS until it says no storage device present. I ran the diagnostic disc and everything passes the tests! What would the problem be that it will not detect the HD? I have tried other HD's that are good.\015\012Rod\015

Hi,
\015\012You need to go into the bios (f2) at boot. Configure the drive selections according to the drive you have; sata, ide, etc. It's probly just a wrong setting.
