My issue was that hard drive slipped out of it connector. Snapped it back in. Works! Thanks for great instructions.

Thanks for your help - now reformattting in a different laptop

I've replaced my drive as described above.

Can anyone tell me what comes next?

*I turned it on, got dialog on the drive recognized, but I couldn't get it started.

I did try the dell drivers & utilities that came with it with no luck.

I looked into the options under F2, F8 & F12.

No luck there.

I'm still digging through e-how links.

A new hard drive normally doesn't have Windows installed on it. Hopefully you have created the dell recovery dvds when you first obtained the laptop. If you don't have that you can try and download the dvd image from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-....
