From you're description it sounds like the hard disk drive is defective. Suggest you replace it with a new drive, choose from the list provided; http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=Dell+Inspiron+1520+new+hard+disk+drive&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=QertS-P-NYP48AaSy8z9Cg&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CDEQrQQwAA
There is another option. Restore a DELL Inspiron 1525 laptop to factory settings.
You have to do it BEFORE Windows loads...
1. Reboot, and press Ctrl + F11 at the Dell logo.
2. The Dell PC Restore by Symantec screen will come up.
3. Select "Restore" or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
4. if you wish to continue, click "Confirm", or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
5. When the utility is finished, click "Finish", or use the Tab key to highlight it and press Enter.
***This will erase all your unsaved data!***
Use you're recover CD to reinstall Windows.

Good luck!
Mike

If you get a blue screen then you have a piece of hardware loose inside your lappy or could be a loose cable on the hard drive or cd/dvd rom, since lappy's are very hard to take apart it's best to take it to a shop to get fixed sorry.

hi there, have you pressed the DISP button (see red line above) or REVIEW button (blue line) yet??
if there`s still nothing appear on the LCD, i assume the LCD connector from the body is broken
you can claim it to be repaired to the store you bought it from, since the warranty still valid
hope this post will help
