Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
It is also possible that the cable to connect the hard drive to the computer has gone bad or disconnected itself. This can sometimes happen in laptops. Try checking your hard drive using the system diagnostics in the BIOS settings, or by creating a Drive Fitness Test CD on another machine (http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm). If neither of these detects your hard drive, it's very likely a connection issue. If you feel comfortable doing so, and it doesn't void your warranty, you can unscrew the cover on the bottom of the laptop and check the connection yourself. Make sure you're grounded, so you don't ruin anything with static discharge. If you don't have a screwdriver that small you can usually get one of those kits at the dollar store. They're the right size, but be careful because they will sometimes strip the screws. Good luck!
