I have an inspiron 1525 PP29L and need to replace the hard drive. How can I tell if ones that are offered on ebay (Seagate, Western Digital, et al) will fit?

Hi, I hope this helps.

Well, it's a laptop, so as long as it say's that it's a 2.5 " size drive, it will fit space wise.

You may need to set your bios to auto to detect the drive properly, though.

I believe that you can put a 1 or 2 gig hard drive in, and the system should recognize it properly right away.

Good luck, and thanks for coming.

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance

That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Thinkpad t20 trouble installing operating system

Three reasons why its not making it. One is a faulty hard drive, and even though you bought a new one it can still be faulty. Two is your Windows XP Disc is damaged but the most likely one is that your motherboards slot for the hard drive and/or more are faulty and is not working well. Run XP and choose 'Format Drive' and Install two partitions, one C Drive and D Drive giving each equal amounts and installing NTFS on one part and FAT32 on the other and see which one runs the best. If both fail, Replace your Hard Drive with the origional one where windows was shot and Format and do the same things as above with the partitions and NTFS and FAT32. If again it fails borrow another hard drive and again do the same things and again if it fails. Also since you said its difficult to make it to the part for partitions replace your CD Drive if the CD looks good and re run the boot disc. If all fails, replace your motherboard and give it all another go

Hope This Helps
