This could be an issue with a bad drive or a bad drive controller on the mother board. If you have access to another drive try swapping it out otherwise you will need to take it to a shop and have it tested. You can also see if you have the disk that came with the machine it may have a diagnostic program on it as well.

Can you tell me step by step directions on how to reseat my hard drive on a dell inspiron 1545?



Turn off power, remove battery.
Flip it over and look to the bottom right. Remove the 4 screws with a small Phillips screw driver.
Pull out hard drive slot. Remove the screws attaching the slot, fix new hard drive in old hard drive's place.
Put screws back in, plug back in battery.
It really doesn't get any easier than this, kudos to Dell for making it easily serviceable.

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...

My windows explorer stops and restarts please help me to solve the same


It's possible that it's a hardware problem or your computer is infected by a computer virus. Does it restart when you see the windows XP logo or when you are in the desktop? or Does it restart before seeing the windows xp welcome screen? Since this is a laptop it may be hard for you to reseat some of the internal devices inside in your laptop so we could start isolating the issue from the hardware and to the software.

First try to power cycle it, turn off your laptop remove the battery, any external connection like external mouse, external hard drive and monitor and press the power button for 15 seconds after that put the battery in and turn it back on without the external devices plugged in. (if it turned on without a problem that's good-possible that one of the external devices are causing it to keep on restarting, to isolate it you can just put the external devices one-by-one and start the computer, if it start occuring you know who is causing the problem)

If you can disassemble your laptop you can try to remove the hard drive, then turn on your computer, if your computer didn't restart that means that the problem is with you hard drive, possible that the software installed in it is faulty or the hard drive itself (try plugging it back in properly let's see if it'll work, if not, you may need to buy a new hard drive or before buying one, you can try to plug your hard drive to a different computer (acting like an external hard drive) and backup all your important files and reformat that hard drive, after reformatting it you can try to plug it to your laptop again. (if that hard drive is not detected to another computer meaning that it's faulty)

If that didn't resolve the problem, you can try to reseat the memory testing each memory chip and slots, processor.

Hope this help.

How to reseat the hard disk drive


If the HD has never been removed it is unlikely it needs reseated. You need to go into the BIOS (press F1 during start-up) and see if the HD is visable under the drives section. If it is not then it is dead and needs replaced. Data recovery may be necessary if you need anything from it.

However to reseat it, turn the laptop over and there are two screws that come out to slide the HD out from the side. Pull it out and then push it back in firmly and replace the screws.

Hard drive not detected


this sounds like a classic case of hardware failure, try taking the hard out and putting back in again, also check in the bios to see if the hard drive has been detected. if you get the same result the hard drive has failed and you will need another one
