Open the CD rom drive while the unit is running and place your original recovery disc in the CD rom drive and turn the unit off. Reboot the unit and it should start from the CD. Follow the on screen instructions including telling it to reformat the hard drive. This will clean off the drive but anything you had will be gone. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

How to Fix my Dell inspiron mini 1010 won't go past Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally ,keeps looping back to same page.How do I fix when this model doesn't have a place to put a CD?


Do as it suggests, if you can, backup your data. Purchase a new hdd, fit it, load windows, download all drivers from Dell and use a usb converter to copy files back from the faulty drive.

Slow, stalls, freezes up


If your hard drive is too full, then your computer is going to perform slower. Delete old files which are not required.

Remove programs that you are no longer using. Delete temporary files.

Empty your recycle bin. Right click on Recycle Bin. Click Empty Recycle Bin>Yes.

Run an error check on your computer. The error check can remove errors that slow down your computer. If you are using Windows, you can do this by clicking Start>My Computer. Right click on your hard drive (typically c:) and then select Properties. Click the Tools tab>Check Now and then Start.

Clean up your registry. You can purchase software that will fix any registry errors on your computer.

Perform this computer maintenance on a weekly basis.

Hi,

Surprisingly the task of replacing the hard drive is fairly easy, as soon as you have purchased a replacement drive (make sure it's a IDE 2.5ins drive)
Just click on the link that i have provided bellow for instructions on how to remove the hard drive from the laptop and replace it >>>>

Inspiron 1521 is running hot


I recommend you check your air vents for dust buildup. Use an old toothbrush to clean the dust off the outside of the vents and then use one of those cans of compressed air meant for cleaning keyboards to blow air through the vents to dislodge any dust accumulated inside. Some laptops have more than one vent. Make sure to clean all of them. I once worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to clean out all of the vents.

Dell inspiron 5150 primary hard drive disk 0 not found


You may find that either the cable is not connected properly or is faulty, or the worse case the mother board has problems (driver, chips, breakages)
May even be a power supply problem, as the power supply has many output points and different voltages that the HDD power out may have blown. If it has then the rest of the system will appear to be ok.
So first off, check the cables connections on the motherboard, and look for any breaks in the cables, and if you have a power meter of some sort check the power connection, or plug in another power connector, the ones with the same end are generally the same power outputs. The ribbon cable for the HDD should have 2 sockets for HDDs and you must connect your HDD to the end one.

You could image or ghost the old drive, but you need to have access to it from another system with storage to save the information as there no way to have both drives installed in this model. I believe the easiest and preferred method would be to perform a clean install. You can use a borrowed OS CD provided you have your own product key. You could then get an external USB enclosure to connect your old drive to retrieve data.

Dell XPS M140 Very Slow In Booting Up and General Use


Run a check disc, or hard drive test in the bios, if any part of the test fails, then the hard drive is failing and will need replaced. Delete anything from the start up section of the start menu/programs, and download and run CCleaner form filehippo.com, it will help keep your computer clean and running fast/smoother. Also, are you using Norton? If so, remove it and use the AVG. You can find it at File Hippo as well.

Did you accidentally buy a SATA notebook drive?

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