Im working on my dell inspiron8600 yesterday when it went black and said not boot disk detected.
I checked the Bios, not hard drive detected
I checked the diagnostics, same result.
Next i reseated the drive and ran through all of the above troubleshooting , nothing has changed.
Before the problem started i wasnt doing anything but checkijng email. I didnt hear anything strange, not clickig or grinding.
Could this be the board instead of the drive?
If it is the drive, are there any other ways to recover the data then getting blackmailed by one of these recovery companies. I just got a quote of $1500 - $4500.
Any help or Suggestions would be greatly appreciated
