Couple of questions for you if I may, have you changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to CD drive first and the hard drive (HDD) second and do you have an installation disk that may have been supplied when the computer was new.

As no HDDs are being detected by the BIOS you may need to do a physical check on them, are you ok with working inside the computer.
While the case is open I would also remove the MBs CMOS battery to restore the MB back to the factory default settings, just in case the issue is/has been caused by a bad setting.
For how to set the boot sequence in the BIOS see the Dell details @ http://www.hiren.inf...bios-boot-cdrom please ignore reference to any other product or service offered at the link.
