I haven't used my inspiron 8100 in a couple weeks since i got my xps m170 and i go to turn it on to grab the last bit of stuff of it and I get the dell screen and then it says primary hard drive not found fixed optical drive not found press f1 to boot again or f2 for set up. If i put a cd in the drive i can hear the drive spinning up so i don't think its dead and the hard drive light is on so i don't think its dead either. What do you think could be the cause of this? I backed up most of my data but i still wanted to get a few things off my inspiron 8100. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
