Hard drive undetectable

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525  Two weeks ago, I was typing a paper with the laptop on my lap and my left elbow pressed against the corner of the laptop. Suddenly I saw a blue screen and it the machine shut down. I restarted it it, but it has since then it has been malfunctioning. I heard some tics , like the computer will start but it won't.
I tried to reinstall window Vista on it, but the laptop won't detect the Hard Drive.
I wonder if the crash came from me resting my elbow on the laptop.  Any help ? And

    This just happened to me about three days ago! I was thinking about reinstalling Windows Vista, but I was afraid that it would erase my files. I get the Error 2000-0141. No hard drive detected. I'm afraid I've ruined my hard drive and I'll just have to get a new one. =(

How to reset settings


A persistent operating system error on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop requires more than just a system restore as there is a problem with a driver that a system restore cannot correct.


A full factory reset of the laptop wipes the hard drive clear of all data including existing driver settings and programs and installs the original operating system back to the hard drive.


Once cleared, previous computer files and programs are non-recoverable.


Press "Power" on the Inspiron 1525, and continuously press "F8" on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the laptop's screen.


Press the down arrow to highlight "Repair Your Computer," and press "Enter" to select the highlighted onscreen option.


Click your preferred keyboard layout, and click "Next" to continue with the laptop's restoration process.


Type "administrator" in the username field, click "OK" and click "Dell Factory Tools."


Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and click "Next." Click the checkbox next to the hard drive reformat confirmation, and click "Next."


Click "Finish" to reboot the OS after the restore process finishes, which can take up to 10 minutes.


Hope this helps.

What hot keys will unlock the hard drive in an Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop


There isn't a hotkey to unlock a hard drive. It's locked from within the BIOS.

When you boot the computer you should see a message saying Press " key " for setup.

Inside there is where the hard drive password is set.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Remove the hard drive on the left side hand edge of the laptop and put it back again making sure that its properly press. This will require you to use a + screw driver. If the same thing occurs, unfortunately, replacing the hard drive will resolve the issue basing on the error code pertains to the hard drive being undetected. Please let me know of the outcome.

The dell inspiron 1525 says cannot detect hard drive when I turned it on. Can you help me?


Check the bios if the HDD is detected, reboot the computer and hit f2 to go to the bios option. Try to reseat the hard drive, your hard drive is on the bottom left side of the computer. There will be two screws to be removed so you can reseat it.
Run the PSA diags, do this by turning off the computer and then while the computer is off press and hold the <FN> then the power button. This will initiate the PSA test and once you got an error code like 2000-0141, report this to dell tech support for assistance
