    You just install the new drive over the old one, you dont need to uninstall the old one if you dont want.



    What driver is it that you want to uninstall?

Have you ever opened a laptop before? you have to be very careful and be sure you don't ground out the motherboard which in turn could short out some components, To be on the safe side, I would take it to somebody with experience takin the backside off the laptop to install the drive. You don't want to do trial and error on your laptop.

Hi I was just wondering... If I have a virus or a few on my Dell vostro 1000 laptop that caused me to be unable to get windows updates or anti-virus updates which disabled or eat my anti-virus software...


Yes it would be better to save your data to an external hard drive or flash memory stick. Remember to scan the this data before you copy them back onto your laptop, if the data files are infected with viruses you will infect your laptop again.
If is best to re-install Windows, the installation process will allow you to delete the old partition, create a new partition and then select a full NTFS format, do not do a quick format.

Dell 1000 Inspiron won't get past start up screen, frozen


Had this exact problem on the same model (Dell Inspiron 1000) laptop. Solution was simple: remove battery, problem goes away. I guess the battery was so far gone it was hanging the BIOS on startup.

Fresh install


Thats ok so I believe the HDD and the memory diags have passed and no error codes. Make sure the windows XP CD is there in the drive and turn off your system. Now try this remove battery and ac adapter.Press power button for 10 seconds. then connect only the ac adapter. Here is the link for instructions on how to boot from the CD.
