First, test the HDD as a slave on other PC. If it can be seen on that pc, you better check your RAM. Or try to replace your cable. I had that problem before.

I have done the suggestions that ahYeop has given you. Sometimes it's something as simple as the cable going bad (pinched between parts) or a bad boot sector.

If it is seen as a slave try doing a repair and if that fails format the drive and see if that works.

Our organization uses 90% Dell computers. We get the CDs for troubleshooting and most of the time it turns out to be a pinched cable since Dell put alot of their Optiplex (GX 60, 260, 280, 270) in swing open cases and the cables get pinched.

If none of those the vendor and if the system is still under warranty get the drive replaced.
