Dear sir / madam

That can access and clean any drive. As long as it is a good drive. I use two programs that use ether Dr Dos or a low level format. It will clean and allow you to reuse the drive. There is a way around almost every thing and I have had to use most of them in the contracting jobs that I have had.
You can try Bartpe to boot and fix things or Kopix not sure if the the proper way to say it but it can do wonders.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background

If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
