Hello Computer gurus,

Please, how can one fix the following error appearing on a Dell laptop screen?

Kindly help!

Not from the BIOS but the cable connection. Also, reconnect the cable to both HDD and board.

Thank you for the feedback. But my HDD doesn't have cable... It's a fit (male and female insertion) e.g pictures below �

System still not coming up

With the information you gave, the hard drive is stucked due to shock. If after trying to reload a fresh OS on the laptop and you still experience booting challenge. I will advice you replace the hard drive and reload a fresh OS. You should be fine afterwards.

Follow what dx' says.
Your files will still be intact if you select to keep files, else, they're gone.

Guess the HDD is not being seen anymore by the system.

Wonder if it can be repaired
