Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
The IDE device is the hard drive, if the system says its not working then it will have to be replaced, there is no way of fixing it.
Please be aware that this is a common problem so your not on your own.
I recommend the you purchace a Seagate hard drive as they come with a full five year guarantee.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.
The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.
There is a connection problem such as a bad cable
for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide
this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
for usb drives
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
hope this helps
