Turn the system over, remove the battery and the hard drive cover to see if the hard drive has simply become disconnected http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1300/en/sm/hdd.htm#wp1084976

as for the wife, I don't have a manual for mine either :(

How to reseat hard drive from dell inspirion laptop?


Ambiguous question but I will attempt to help.

If you are wanting to restore the computer to factory build, then the OS disc will be required, or you can roll back with 'System Restore' How to restore Windows XP to previous state

If the hard drive is not showing in the BIOS then a replacement hard drive can be purchased for a few pounds.
Amazon co uk IDE Hard Drives Computers Accessories

Hope this helps you out?

When my wife boots up her Dell Inspirion 1525 about every third time, she gets a black screen reading "No bootable devices found".


it seems your harddisk connection is not tight enough, you'll have to open your notebook up to check it.

Help! My Dell Inspirion 1525 laptop crashed, black screen, nothing..I ran the diagnostic test for the os and there were several errors. I have the reinstallation discs but do not know to do that.


0F00 errors are hard disk drive errors. You will need to replace the hard drive. If under warranty, call Dell Tech support. If not, then you can buy a new drive from places like Newegg.com

I crashed my Dell Inspirion B130 and used Windows XP CD to restore it. Now all the configurations and files are gone, the screen doesn't look the same and the modem, speakers, ethernet controller, etc are...


I'm affraid you just installed a clean XP on your laptop which would mean that all data has been lost (you probably formatted the hdd at some point).

Such data could be recovered, but it takes quite a lot of work and a pro to do it.

Ran diagnostic on dell inspirion got error code


OK, that is EASY. That basically means the optical drive (cdrom/dvdrom drive) does not "see" anything in it. If you do not have a disc inside it during the diagnostic, open the drive and insert a disc, then click RETRY. HOWEVER, if you DO have a disc inside and you get an error, that COULD mean you have a scratched or damaged lens in the drive, OR, you could have a bad disc in it. Try it again with several other cd discs. if they all fail with the same error, that means the drive needs to be replaced. Good luck. :)

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

Error code c0000218 for a dell inspiron..


your best bet is to get a convertor connector for the laptop drive to full size IDE drive and put it in a desktop as a 2nd drive to format the laptop drive using the desktop, put it back in the laptop and do a clean install/restore.
