Dell DataSafe Local Backup 2.0 is a backup application installed on Dell Inspiron, Studio and XPS computers as of April 22, 2009.

Unlike previous versions of Dell's system protection software, Dell DataSafe Local Backup 2.0 is able to restore a Dell computer to the original factory-installed configuration without erasing personal files and data.

... this depends if Dell DataSafe Local Backup exists on your laptop!

... turn on the computer and press the <F8> key when the Dell Logo appears.

... from the Advanced Boot Options highlight Repair Your Computer
with the arrow keys [press enter]

... click [NEXT] and login to your administrator account on the computer. The administrator account is the account created the first time the computer was turned on.

... then click "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" and follow the prompts provided.

... let us know how you get on.

... try booting into your bios and see if it'll auto detect your harddrive.
