Hello

 

At start up I went into diagnostics and ran drive test from the utility disk. Everything passed, then when I rebooted it can't find the drive and it is making noise. I have a Dell Latitude and XP.

 

Thanks

Did you try running the Dell Diagnostics again?

Sounds like a dead drive, then.

 

But...I would still remove it and try it as a secondary drive on a different system.  Then check the BIOS to see it properly recognized there.  Then check Disk Management only if drive is properly reflected in BIOS.

Don't have any way to connect it to another system right now, I'll have to figure something out.

 

I should add that I ran a full diagnostic, the drive was scanned last. Everything passed, no errors, I reboot, and the drive is dead? Makes no sense to me. Everything was working fine before that.
