Hi. i have a problem in my laptop that there is a error with code 2000-0151 in dell inspiron 3520 window 7 home basic 64 bit. is there is any solution of the problem or i have to replace the hard disk ......

NO you do not need to reinstall win7 or buy a new hard disk
there are 3 fixes for your problem and I have all three you can have for free,
I'm assuming you are using another computer at the moment, so first download the program from this link,
How to Repair Errors in Windows 7
you can only use this if you can get your operating system to boot in any mode, if not download this disk (press the F8 key to get windows boot options and select mode)
and burn the iso to disk and boot from it and run scan disk on your hard drive, that may fix you problem right then, but if not, I have both Microsoft repair disks for win7 and can send you a link for that also, but I have to know which one you need,,,, there is one for 32bit and one for 64bit and you can only use the one that you have, So let me know

Lacie 250 gig HD will not show light on front when switched on, also no sound comes from it, it seems completly DEAD, this happened overnight, at end of night all was OK, in the morning it would not even...

the power regulator inside the external enclosure is probably dead the drive itself may still be intact,you can remove the dribe from the enclosure and run it as an internal drive if you have any free ports or you can buy a new enclosure for it and it should run fine.

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          Screen does not come on . cylinder shaped light (by the power light and on/off light) is not lighting up.

          Sound like your Hard Disk drive is not starting up. They are normaly easy to replace, but i would try removing it & putting it into a hdd caddy, there is 2 types, 1 is the old IDe connection & the other is the Sata connection the bigger of the 2 is the IDE and has 2 lines of pins the Sata is normaly a female connector on the drive.

          If you can get hold of a caddy insert it & connect it to a freiends pc or laptop to see if it works, it saves buying a new hdd if its not faulty.

          How to remove hard drive from acer 1360 aspire

          Detach the machine from the power supply.
          Turn the Acer Aspire 1360 over. Remove the battery.
          The hard disk caddy can be seen centrally located from the battery bay (it is shiny metal). There is a piece of clear plastic attached to the back end of the caddy.
          This is usually pushed back on itself under the plastic casing.
          There are two screws located in the casing around where the HDD is located.
          One is deepset and one is much nearer the surface.
          Remove the deepset screw and put aside for later.
          Get hold of the clear plastic strip attached to the HDD caddy (you may need a small screw driver to 'fish' it out). Gently pull the HDD caddy into the battery bay. It should come out quite easily, but you do need to apply consistent and mild force.

          Once you have the caddy out, you will notice that there are two screws holding the HDD in it. Remove them carefully.
          Remove the HDD from the caddy.

          Putting back together is the reverse of the above.

          2nd hdd

          both hard drives will need to be jumpered to a master and a slave or both have to be jumpered to cable select. normally the jumper setting are either on the label of the drives or are marked on the bottom of the drives near the jumper drives. if the setting are not shown find the drive type, model and capacity then do a google search for the drive "select the factory manufacture link" and search their site for the jumper setting of the type drive you have.
