You can easily find an inexpensive hard drive for your computer. I suggest you do a search as I did for "Inspiron 1100 hard drives" Immediately I was able to find http://www.comptick.com/dell-inspiron-1100-memory-ram-hard-drives-battery-batteries-upgrade-options.html which had compatible drives for well under $100. This is just one example and I am not actually recommending this particular source. You may be able to find better pricing if you just search for it.

Test does not detect hard drive boot up problems


Either your hard drive is bad or the controller circuit that controls it. So you have 1 option, replace the hard drive and run the test again. Depending on the size of your drive it may run you $50 to $ 150 bucks. If it's the drive controller circuit, you may need a new system board. Might be cheaper to buy a new computer.

your HDD may be corrupted, re-installing windows vista is one option.

Hi There. I am looking for an Internal Hard Drive to suit a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb ST9160821AS. Where can I get one or is there another Hard Drive that would be OK to use...


I suggest you check the specification of your Dell laptop to see the maximum size hard drive it can support. The maximum size hard disk you can install in the laptop depends upon the BIOS.
Any major brand of 2 1/2" hard drive will work with the Dell.

It may be the DC to DC circuit, which is in the motherboard or could be just the DC power jack.
If you gently move the power plug of the laptop left, right, up and down and you see the LED lights changing that, is a sign of a lose DC power jack to fix it, you will either re-solder or replaced it.

Good luck

Dell 4700c


take off the side panel of the computer and listen to it a little closer when its on. there are very few actual moving parts so i should be fairly easy to isolate the noise. if it's a fan anywhere in the computer it can be replaced for less than 20 dollars and shouldn't be left till it dies, replace it , it's protecting something.

If it's a cd drive making the noise , it can be replaced for 25 dollars.

If it's the hard drive, then you need to back up your important files AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, because when it crashes, you generally have a hard time retrieving stored information from it.
hard drives can be replaced for 50 to 150 dollars depending on type and how large it is.
Most times the noise from a computer comes from the fans and power supply, then the cd/dvd roms , then the hard drive : so check them in that order. post here again if you need further assistance.. Regards

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

Hard drive


jamesroland1,
You have a computer with a 40GB hard drive and you want to add another hard drive (150GB), is that correct? Not knowing the rest of your system age, setup and configuration makes it hard to know what you may encounter. If you can add more memory (RAM) it is always helpful to make applications work faster and multiple ones as well. You may want to add an external hard drive if you don't have the room or don't feel comfortable with opening the computer and installing an internal hard drive. If you want to replace the lower capacity drive, you need to reinstall the operating system on the drive and start from scratch.

PAGING FILE ERROR ON HARD DISK DRIVE


You don't install backup files; they're just files.

What you want to do is back up files to a portable hard drive. Then you want to find the backup files on your D drive and delete them.

The biggest commonly available flash drive is 8gb. That's enough to back up your word processing documents and such, but not enough to back up your entire computer. It's may not even be enough room to back up just your music files.

A 1tb external hard drive runs less than $150 now, mail order, delivered.
