Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Wont turn on

My Inspiron 600 says that there is no hard drive when I try to turn it on. This also happened a couple weeks ago, and eventually did turn on after a day of leaving it alone. This time, however, it has been 3 days and it still says no hard drive. Is there anything I can do, or anyway to get my information off the computer?

Your hard drive might still be accessible using external case that you can ourchase from any PC store. Try it first, if you can still access your files, back it up and try to reformat and reinstall your OS.


hope this helps.

Wont turn on


Just a query, has the laptop been dropped? If so it may have damaged the internal hard disk drive. If it has not been dropped, can you boot in safe mode?

Screen wont turn on , i have a inspiron 6400 .. I rang dell & my extra 3yr warranty ran out just 6 weeks ago & * They WONT HELP*


when you say screen will not turn on it means we do not have display right? now, try this. turn off laptop, press and hold D key then press power button, check if the LCD will display colors if yes then it might be your video card causes the problem which needs motherboard replacement. if no colors appear then LCD needs replacement.

Dell inspiron 1300 does not switch on


try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If this doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive then turn on ht laptop.

If after all of these steps you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad.

DVD-RW Not recognized in Dell Inspiron 1525


Turn off your laptop, take the dvd-rw drive out of the laptop and then reseat it back into the slot so it snaps into place. Turn the laptop back on and make sure its recognized in My computer.

If it is reocognized then try to burn again and see what happens. If it still gives you the same message, see if your drive will read regular dvd movies. If it doesn't then that means the laser is going bad and the drive will need to be replaced.

Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

Dell Inspiron 1000 notebook won't turn on


The motherboard is bad. This model had a fault where after a while the North Bidge heatsink would break off and short the motherboard distroying it. This problem is something to not fix, it is not worth it, cost more than it is worth.

If you have verified the hard drive ribbon-cable is plugged in solid at both ends, then you may need a new ribbon-cable.. They only cost a few buckss. Otherwise your motherboard may have problems.
