Your best bet is to get a convertor connector for the laptop drive to full size IDE drive and put it in a desktop as a 2nd drive to format the laptop drive using the desktop, put it back in the laptop and do a clean install/restore.

I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

To solve code error 0146 and 0148


Hi there.
0146 error is DST Log contains previous error(s).
0148 error is
IDE ERROR: status (x) (s)

This could be a problem with the BIOS, restart the PC and hit F2 as it starts up, this will take you into the bios, reset the bios to default setting, press F10, save and exit the bios, the PC will restart so perform another check and see if the same error code return.

Good luck

Computer is not booting up error code c0000218


You get this message from a corrupt or damaged registry or corrupt or missing drivers, or both. Unless you have made a full backup of the operating system and data, without the XP disc I don't know of any way you can fix this. See if a friend has the same operating system disk. If all else fails a reputable repair person can solve this.

Good Luck

Problem installing windows XP


This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.

Installing xp on inspiron 1525


The reason why xp does not see the hard drive durin setup is the ahci option enabled in the bios. you need to change the option to ata. to do that power on the system and tap f2 at the dell logo. in the bios change the stat operations to ata. the option most likely is listed under drivers. you may also have to disble flash cache from the bios. once the option is disabled hit esc and save and exit. boot from the XP cd and run the setup. at the partations screen delete the c drive and partation it according to the size you need for xp and leave the rest for vista. install XP and the drivers from support.dell.com. After XP is ready to use put in the Vista DVD once in XP and install Vista on the unpartationed space left from the c drive.

Problems with Dell Inspiron 9400 Video Memory conflict -


This solution is totally incorrect. He is having the problem that many of us face with the GeForce Go 7900 GS and the Inspiron 9400. There is a known issue with eventual overheating and the video card going bad. This is specific to the single-pipeline chip, in which their is a new dual-pipeline style that fixes the cooling/overheating issue that eventually fries the video chip. Dell has not 100% took ownership of this. I am on my fourth fried video card (thank god for the 3-year warranty I got) in which they have previously replaced with the single-pipeline style. This time they are finally replacing the laptop with either a new Inspiron 9400 (better be dual-pipeline chip) or a NEW equivalent laptop.
