Leon,
Yes, most HDs will fit your machine. But when you order it, be sure you ask the salesperson to ensure it will fit.
Now, you know that the HD will usually come without anything on it. Blank. You will have to format it, then install whatever operating system you wish to use.
Take it slowly and do it carefully and all should work out well. Prepare for about a three hour project, to get up and running, then the next steps should be slow, too.
Once you're up, go to Microsoft's update site and update your OS to what is most recent.
Then install Office, or whatever apps you want, and then update them, too.
And at then end, install your anti-virus. The reason being that a lot of applications will tell you to disable AV before installation, so you don't want to go through that all the time, and you install AV at the end point.
-a.

Hello mi problem is wen i turn on mi lapton dell ispiron 2200 apear no bootable devices strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for set up utility, wath i can do? windows xp


Your hard drive's Master Boot Record might be the problem. If it was corrupted then the bios will not see a bootable hard drive.

Three things you have to do in order to solve this.

1. purchase a 2.5" external enclosure, remove the hard drive and put it in there.
2. purchase another 2.5" hard drive for the laptop and reinstall Windows.
3. once the reinstall is done, plug the enclosure into the laptop by the usb cable and copy your data to the new hard drive.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 will not boot. It is failing some hard drive diagnostics. error code 0146 when running long disk test error code 0f00:075D Disk_0 self test read error and error code 0F00:0232...


Ouch, I hate it when that happens. There are some diagnostics available on the web (or from a buddy) that can be made bootable. Two come to mind:

Ultimate Boot CD for Windows www.ubcd4win.com
Hirens BootCD www.hiren.info

You will need to download the data and then follow the instructions to create a bootable CD. If you're a geek this could be a fun project... if you're not a geek and don't want to spend some time... then don't bother.-, it could be troublesome.

It sounds as if you have already resigned to a new HD or rebuilding your system from scratch... you could borrow a Windows CD from a friend and attempt a Repair. Just make sure to get the same version of Windows.

You can also bring the machine to Staples, Office Depot or some other store that does repair work. If you purchase a new HD and have them install it, they should be able to recover your operating system.

My laptop is a dell 6000 and it says there are no bootable devices


your hard drive has failed, on boot (dell splash screen) press f12 to bring up boot menu, choose diagnostics option, run this and it should confirm hard drive failure on dst short test (drive self test) and give an error code (e.g 2000 - 0142), trust me on this i am a dell field service engineer

Your Hard Drive may have failed. to be sure. enter setup (F2) then run the hard drive diagnostic utility. a scan can take up to an hour or more and will tell you if your hard drive has failed. if it has you will need to replace it and reinstall your operating system

If you have verified the hard drive ribbon-cable is plugged in solid at both ends, then you may need a new ribbon-cable.. They only cost a few buckss. Otherwise your motherboard may have problems.

Modem replacement inspiron 2200


Do you have access to another laptop that you could test the new modem in? Sounds to me like the new one maybe faulty :(

Try uninstalling the old one whilst its in via device manager then shut down and put new one in. If it doesnt detect it then its faulty.
