It's in the bottom. There's 2 screws holding the carrier in,Phillip's head. I didn't look it up but it should be in the dead center front or right side. Sounds like you need a new hard drive so just replace it.

Looks like it is slid into your laptop so all you should have to do it remove one or two screws and pull it out

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...

Your hard drive is defective. The clicking noise you hear are the heads trying to load. For info on how a hard drive works copy and paste this link on your internet browser:

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.

My dell inspiron 1525 has a memory write / read failure and i tried to reseat the memory and that did not work. Please help me


This could also be a problem with the hard disk. Part of the hard disk is usually used as a virtual memory. If the hard drive is defective, you could experience this kind of failure.
Check your hard disk drive using CHKDSK C: from a command line prompt. Check the outcome of this command. If you find any errors, run the command CHKDSK C: /F to fix the errors. Beware that the second command will prompt you to reboot your computer.

The dell inspiron 1525 says cannot detect hard drive when I turned it on. Can you help me?


Check the bios if the HDD is detected, reboot the computer and hit f2 to go to the bios option. Try to reseat the hard drive, your hard drive is on the bottom left side of the computer. There will be two screws to be removed so you can reseat it.
Run the PSA diags, do this by turning off the computer and then while the computer is off press and hold the <FN> then the power button. This will initiate the PSA test and once you got an error code like 2000-0141, report this to dell tech support for assistance

Inspiron 1525 was working fine yesterday but today wont boot. Says it can't access the hard drive.


Does the hard drive LED flash and the hard drive spin up when you bootup?
If it doesn't then you could have a faulty hard drive or a fault disk controller.
Reseat the hard drive to see if it is a connection problem.
If the problem still persists then to test if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter.
Connect this to a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK.
If not then the hard drive is faulty and you need a new hard drive in the Dell and Windows installed etc. to get the Dell operational again.
