    If you enter the bios (either f2 or f10 upon boot) does the drive show up in bios?

It is possible that the HD has failed completely. However, this is a relatively new laptop, so I would suspect that is not the case. Sometimes the HD will lose contact for one reason or another. This can usually be cured by removing the HD and reinstalling it, which will remove any crud from the contacts.

If the machine is still under warranty, call Dell support. They will walk you through diagnostics to determine the actual problem.
If you're not sure of the warranty status, go here:

I have reseated the hard drive in my inspiron 1525 laptop and it still says internal hard disk drive not found. what can i do?


Hello,
You might need to borrow another hard disk drive from your friend or relatives and try it on your laptop. If it still does not work, then we can assume that the laptop needs repair with the hard disk drive port.
Hope this helps in resolving the issue...

The hard drive may have failed or a virus has corrupted the Cmos data.
Try entering the BIOS and checking that the Cmos recognises that the hard drive is there. If it doesn't, remove the hard drive and re fit it, booting up again.

Dell sold me on a partition for my hard drive, but now the C-drive is full and D-drive is virtually empty. How can I increase the size of C at the expense of D?


The only way to adjust the size of a partition is to reformat the hard drive. You might be able to move some files and programs from C to D to free up some space on C, but that's pretty much your only choice.

No internal hard disk found


Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
