Power on, F12, Dell diagnostics, extended test, hard drive.

Pre-boot test gives me 100% pass, but i see no hard drive test, extended or otherwise. It tells me 'No diagnostic utility partition identified' and only gives me an option to reboot. Does it need this for hdd testing?

...need to be installed first, and on the primary partition). Now whenever I boot up the machine, I get an 'Error loading operating system' 'Press any key to continue' message. I tried doing a format on the hard drive via a recovery boot...

It sounds like you've deleted the Dell diagnostic partition (or it is damaged). You can download a test utility from all the drive makers' websites except Toshiba - identify the manufacturer and download its test utility.

Power up, start pressing F12 immediately, until you hit a menu. Select the option for diagnostics, which will run the built in diags. The one to watch for is the DST (Drive Short Test). If it fails, the hard drive is dying or dead.

...it will turn on and get passed the dell startup screen, but then it goes to a black screen that says "error loading operating system" in the top left. i tried calling dell tech suport, i was on hold for quite a long time and they told...

Sounds like you need a new hard drive.

Ok. the Short Test did fail so I guess I have to look for a new HD. Thank you for your replies.

lsiy Dear leee488, Thanks but no thanks to your advice.The link you gave says: Does not ship to Philippines. Well,I happen to live in the Philippines. It was just an example. You don't have to take the "advice' literally.

What I mean is,compatibility wise,my old Vista OS worked fine before I switched to W7.It just stopped working and I have to re-install the Vista OS.Unfortunately,I don't have the original OS CD,so,I took chance with the W7 installer and that's how this trouble begun.

I am not going to spend that much money on a new hard drive.My laptop is old.Maybe getting a Windows Vista OS installer will make my expenses less,don't you think so?Something that will be compatible to my old existing hard drive which I think still works?

Besides that ,my old hard drive works fine with it's former Vista OS before I switched to W7.So maybe I'm right that it has something to do with the W7 OS installer.Maybe I just have to find a compatible installer and one that is genuine.

Try reseating the drive - -remove and reinstall it. If the problem persists, you have either a drive that's slow to spin up, or a bad mainboard - the drive is well under $100 to replace, vs $400+ for a board, so if the problem persists, try a new drive first.
