Check the hardrive connection to its socket, replace firmly, the connection might loose. I wish you didn't damage the hardrive since it is very sensitive to shock

1) Try to reseat the hard drive. Remove the Battery and the power adapter first. Follow the steps on removing the hard drive form here http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/hdd.htm#wp1180023

place it back again. and turn it back on.

2) if it still does not work the best thing to do is to contact dell tech support for hard drive troubleshooting. they may require it to be sent to them specially if it is still within warranty.

NTLDR missing in Dell Inspiron 1525 . How to fix this problem??


Tap F12 at boot screen, select the option to restore your hard drive- unless you have the install disks for windows, then you can try doing a repair. The other thing is to check and see if you have a usb memory key in your laptop- I've done that to myself!

The hard drive has failed. If you're in warranty, contact Dell for a warranty replacement of the drive - it's a customer-replaceable part.
If you're out of warranty, look on ebay for a good deal on a brand new hard drive for your Dell Inspiron 1525

Dell Inspiron 8200 Battery


I assume that you have your charger plugged in as long as you use the laptop...

There are very minimal chances o the battery having been damaged, since the casing on the inspiron 8200 is quite sturdy.. i suggest you get the charge socket (the socket that leads to the main wall electricity outlet) from a qualified technician...

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
