Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

2 Answers

When I try turning my dell inspiron e1505 laptop on, it doesn't boot up all the way and says that there are no bootable devices found on the computer. i ran the setup test or whatever, and it failed the harddrive test, saying that there was no detectable harddrive. i made sure the hard drive was in good and tight and tried again but the same thing happened. got any ideas?

    yeah, it's been clicking this whole time. so it's not something i can fix without buying a new hard drive?

  • phillyguy15 Dec 03, 2008

    alright... that sucks. if i buy a new HD though, will i still have the files that i saved on my computer while the old one was still working?

Try to listen the noise coming from H-disk and note that its normal or abnormal.. like clicking or something....


Remove your H-disk a try new one... its surely a H-disk issue...

    Nooooooooopsss old files are saved in the old drive which is not working now..

    but

    There are few ways to recover data from damaged H-Drives.

    Find any technician who repairs the H-dsks. he may be able to rescue some data..

    but as you are telling its Clicking whole the time...... Data recovery chances are very low....

My dell inspiron will not boot it says no bootable device found


Hi, try pressing the ESC key during bootup, this will allow you to boot in safe mode, from where you can reset your operating system to a time before the problem started.
If this dosn't help come back to me for help on re installing operating system.

I dont know my dell inspiron e1505 admin password, how to unlock it ... in the system recovery options


The only way to reset the Admin password is through SAM database, first you need to create a USB bootable drive and download password reset program (it's DOS base) after you've created a USB bootable drive put the password reset program there and boot your PC to USB and type the password reset program name, and you are ready to reset the administrator password.
