My Dell Ispiron 1750 cant detect hard drive.

Specs: Windows 7 home
I think one of my kids may have dropped it! But when I went to use it, it would not boot up. first you get the Logo then black screen. I ran a diagnostic and it says, can't detect hard drive, try reseat, so I did that and it didn't do anything? Anyone have some advise?

Well if the hard drive is not being detected at all....could get icky. Ideally, I would remove the drive and try cloning the hard drive to a new hard drive likely also had the dell recovery partition, which along with your data are most important. If the a techi can't do it because the drive is not recognized by recovery software, then it gets ickier, and data recovery becomes more time consuming and costly (they may have to try replacing the hard drive circuit board) and it goes on from there....icky and costly. So I hope you get lucky, but you may have grin and bear it....remembering to back up in the future. No one ever thinks the kids will drop it....but it happens. They put peanut butter sandwiches in the vcr's didn't they!
