Hi Gail

This error very much relates to your hard drive either having failed or is in the process of failing. The error may come up when the drive fails the S.M.A.R.T. Test (sounds stupid I know).

This test could indicate that the drive is not spinning up in the required time frames or that it draws more power or has needle placement issues.

Sadly here drive age may not have to say much. As a rule in computer electronics you can triple or quadruple every components age. So if the device is 3 years old in technology years it could be 9 years old.

Especially in mobile computing mechanical drives can fail faster even though manufacturers put in newer software to combat the issue of hard drive failure due to movement. For example a hard drive in simple terms is very much like an LP Player where a needle is running on the disc reading the data/music for playback. Now imagine what happens when your walking, moving (bus/train/car you name it) and this needle is exposed to various forces it normally wouldn't be exposed to. Basically that additional strain can cause these mobile hard drives to fail a lot faster.

In this case it does sound like you will need to look at replacing your drive and I would recommend doing this before it fails completely as recovering any data once this happens (photos, documents, etc.) will be very costly.

I hope this helps
Philipp

My dell inspiron 1440 will only say bootmrg is missins


this could be a software fault requiring repair of windows oerating system using the windows installation cd or it could be a more serious problem of a broken hard drive which will need a new one.
before this check the boot order of your system by preesing f8 or f12 or entering setup and looking in the bios at the boot order. if it is wrong set to boot from hard drive.

Try to test your ram, maybe its dying, you can use Memtest 86+ for that. If the ram is ok, try starting it up without your hard drive and try to enter the bios.

Dell Inspiron 1440 notebook cannot start.


I have seen these symptoms before when the hard disk drive has failed. It will hand on the POST screen (The part with the DELL logo) for slightly longer than usual due to fault with the drive, after that it will attempt to boot and error from the hard disk so quickly you see nothing but the laptop appear to cut out. Although the hard disk is the most likely thing to be at fault these issues could potentially be caused by any one of the parts within you laptop being broken.

If you are fairly tech savvy try downloading this utility "Seatools" http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ burn it to a bootable CD. Put the bootable CD in you DELL laptop and boot off it, by pressing F12 and selecting to boot from CD/DVD drive. Then run a "Long test" once this test is complete the software will advise you whether the hard disk is faulty or not.

If you are not confident in trying this I would recommend taking the laptop to be diagnosed by your local computer repair business.

I try and plad a cd on my dell inspiron 1440 but it does not play? how can i fix this


If it won't play and CD's check to make sure it is installed properly in device manager. If it is then the drive may have failed, its just a case of taking the old one out and replacing it with one of the same make and model

On my Dell Inspiron Wont Boot


Hello,

This is telling you that your hard drive has failed. If it is in warranty, then contact Dell and they will fix it free of charge. If not, then get a new hard drive and reinstall windows/drivers/software with the discs that came with the laptop. Or you could take it in to a service shop and they will do it for you.

Hope this helps!

It appears that your laptop's system board cannot not communicate with your hard disk drive. Either your hard drive is defective or the system board. Usually it's the hard drive.
