Help is here for the system modular bay :
My Dell inspiron is old, but the problem is happening with newer models. I first noticed my CD burns were coming out really bad, cliping after the first 3 songs. Then I get the error you did. Then I search 'system modular bay' via yahoo and low and behold Dell Inspirion problems comprise the first set of links.
What you might do is linked below. If you are under warantee, contact dell and insist they replace it.
I noticed the same question is on the dell community forum and unanswered. I will never buy a Dell again, granted mine lasted 10 years as a custom built $2000 laptop (remember those prices?), so maybe I shouldnt ***** but the cheaper parts are being used and failing on the newer models.
I swore off HP also when I found out on an 15 year old laptop that they hard wired the CMOS battery into the board so it would fail in 5-7 years automatically.
Ive since been told theyve stopped doing this, so I am back to HP or is it Compaq. If you can log on to the dell community please help the poor soul Dell is ignoring here:
