Hi there robandviv,
IMHO

Unplug the cable that connects your hard disk drive to the motherboard and plug it again. Make sure that the cable is plugged properly. HTH

Just bought a used dell alienware m15 laptop. I7 intel core I turned it on once... and it booted extremely slow!!!! Than it would not open any apps... or reall do anything besides move the cursor around...


I would do a complete operating system reinstall.
The M15x uses a program called Dell Datasafe Local Backup for factory restores. You can access this program from launching the application from within Windows (it is on the Start Menu), or by using the F8 Windows Boot Options menu. Press F8 after the iniital POST screen (Alien Face), but before you see the Windows logo on the screen. There should be an option to repair Windows, which will launch you into a recovery mode that allows you to restore the system. This option is available even if you have uninstalled the Dell DataSafe Local Backup app from Windows (I did, as its constant polling causes stutterin in Blu-Ray playback). Good luck!

Password lock on laptop


Try pressing ctrl alt del twice at the login screen and you should get a different login window where you can change the username. Change it to administrator and press enter without any password

Trying to restore Dell Inspiron 1501 to factory settings.


don't hit ctrl, f11 instead hit F8 and then go into Dell Factory Image Restore, that will wipe, format and reinstall all the factory software that's stored on the Recovery Drive (usually the D: drive) good luck.

This means your hard drive is bad. You need to replace the hard drive and then the operating system.

That would be a hard drive failure. Unfortunately the your only option is replacement.
