Go into the BIOS and see if the Hard Drive is detected by the BIOS. If the drive is not there than it might be a dead drive or motherboard issue. If the drive is detected in the BIOS it may have become corrupted and you may be able to run a hard drive partition program in dos to repair it. Use the program to delete the partition,then re-activate it, and then format the drive. Just be aware that all you information on the drive will be lost. You can make a bootable cd-rom disc from windows then put it in your cd-rom drive on your laptop so you can run dos commands. You may need to change the boot sequenc in the BIOS so the cd-rom boots first. Otherwise you may need to replace the harddrive.

Dell inspirion 1525 will not boot upon power up...only displays locked 9 light solid


This is a Hard Drive error. If your unit is under one year old, you can get the drive replaced by Dell.
The drive can be accessed outside the laptop to retrieve the data, but it may fail all together very soon.
If you have no data on it, just get a new Hard drive installed. Dell should be able to replace the drive and start the system restore for you.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, operating system not found


First, take out any CDs/DVDs and try to boot again. If that doesn't work, your hard drive may be defective.

There will be a cover on the bottom of your laptop that holds the hard drive (easy access). You can try removing and reinserting the hard drive and then booting the PC afterward.

If that doesn't work, you will likely have to replace the hard drive, but best advice would be to take it to a computer technician for further analysis.

No display


The new hard drive has to be formatted first, then install the operating system. It cannot find the Master Boot Record. Google Master Boot Record repair on the Microsoft Knowledge Base websiter for instructions to rebuild the MBR..
