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.
Please vote if it does. Thanks!

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.

Power button problem

As you said, its 4 months old and assumed under warranty cover. Contact Sony Service Center for repair because if you try yourself, will void warranty.

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.
