At the bottem of your laptop there should be panels that are held in by 1 small screw, your hard drive should be in the largest of them not the battery panel, unscrew the screw and it should come away, there is somtimes a screw or two holding the hard drive in place undo these, put a bit of pressure on the hard drive and try to move one way or the other until it moves away from the connectors and the drive should then pull out. hope this helps.

Did you accidentally buy a SATA notebook drive?

If so, this will not work in your notebook, it used IDE drives.

The hard drive is behind the cover where the mic and earphone are located. Turn the laptop over and there is a single screw that secures this cover. Remove the screw then slide the cover and hard drive out. The cover and cradle are attached to the hard drive.

SOURCE: Dell inspiron 1721 hard drive not recognized for Vista reinstall

ok, theres a small issue with the raid controller. You have to install a 3rd party raid driver (its on the dell cd) to continue, OR, you can set that BIOS's hard drive controls to ATA or LEGACY (legacy would likely work best, but youd have no 'raid' functions, but who sets up raid drives on a notebook?). Your last option is use the dell discs to restore, and inssert the windws disc when prompted

Testimonial: "Thank you so much! It didn't have a option for Legacy, but only RAID and ATA. But it's working!! You are super awesome!! Thank you!!!"

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.



Regards.

I bought a Dell inspiron 400 laptop. I will boot


I would take the hard drive to a computer repair shop and let them scan the HDD and remove the infections. They can also repair the windows installation files so it will boot back up. Either way, you do not have to change out the memory unless you want to install more.

Display area is "shrunken" on Dell Inspiron 4000 display


Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Monitor, set it to Default monitor and click OK.
Does the display now fill the screen?
If this doesn't work, go to the DELL WEB site and see if there a driver for the display. To ensure you get the correct driver for your model laptop, use the Service Tag number (which is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop) to the download page for your model laptop, download the correct Windows XP or Vista version of the driver from :-

Mouse drifts all over screen


Hello there, this a well known problem with inspiron 4000's like a majority of other Dell Inspiron user's... After some time I've managed to fix it simply by downloading a touchpad driver (Tp2aa10i.exe) for Inspiron 4000 from a Dell website. The problem is the defect of the mousestick! And Dell is aware of it! Upon installation, simply disable the mousestick and the headache's gone! This way you can still use you your touchpad and mouse.....
