Hello all,

I dropped my laptop by mistake. Looks like hard disk is dislodged. It shows up Failed hard disk while
booting and I can see that it is not showing up the hard disk name either. After that I get this error.
0200: Failure fixed disk 0. I am really scared if anything else is wrong. I know nothing is wrong. Still
I am concerned about my data more than anything. Before taking it to the repair guy I want to be sure
what is wrong so that he doesn't take me for a ride.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards,
Chitra

You can check if the hard drive is not connected properly yourself. Tell us the laptop's make and model and we can help you to do it.

Thanks for the mail. It is Dell Inspiron XPS 501x. It shows up RAM ok and other stuff.
THen it recognizes the mouse and after that this error shows up. It is not recognizing keyboard
either I think. If I press F2 it doesn't get into BIOS. If you need more info, kindly let me know.

This video shows how to get to the hard drive, you can start at around 2:15 into it. I would take the hard drive out and then reverse that and put it back in, put the keyboard into it's normal position then switch on and see if it works now.

EDIT : forgot to say that if your laptop looks different than the one in the video don't dismantle it just tell us in your reply.
