Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Alright, I helped somebody out with this yesterday so I am going to just copy over my other solution, for the same issue with an unmountable drive:
You need to repair the Master Boot Record. This is a fairly complicated procedure so if you are not confident in your computer skills, this issue is worth hiring a professional to handle.
What you will need is a bootable CD, such as a PE application, which you can use as a platform to run checkdisk.
Boot from this CD and then un-mount your internal hard drive. Run CheckDisk (chkdsk command on cmd) with both of the parameters /f and /r
This should go through your hard drive and repair your MBR.
Reboot your computer and you should be good to go.
If this does not work, run a repair-reinstall. This reinstalls all system files including your MBR and bootable files on the X drive.
Good luck, please rate my solution!
