Hi. I am assuming that you have changed the hard drive with 80GB(Gigabyte) and not 80MB(Megabyte) because 80MB as stated. You need to install an operating system by booting to a CD/DVD drive. You may use the original installation CD that came with your laptop or purchase a license if you don't have one. You may also download free operating system like Ubuntu Linux.

Inspiron 630 supports Windows XP only. You may download the drivers here.

To install Windows XP on your laptop, follow the instructions here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/install.mspx

Get error message "no Bootable disc"


You need to check the BIOS settings to see if they've been changed. Easiest fix once you're in BIOS is to choose "default settings" and then reboot. If the settings are correct (choosing the internal hard drive as the primary boot device) and it still won't boot, your hard drive may have failed.

Get message internal hard disk drive not


This may mean that your computer is trying to boot from a non-bootable drive. Try hitting f12 when you restart the computer and select which drive would have your OS on it. You want to change the boot sequence to diskette drive as your 1st choice. The order should be Diskette Drive, Internal HDD, USB storage Device, CD/DVD drive.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and when I turn it on it tells me NO BOOTABLE DEVICE DETECTED This happen one other time and I rebooted my computer and it came back on but it did not work this time what can I...


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"
There may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Check the boot sequence. For a normal boot, it should be set to hard disk as first item, not the network.

Which pins do you reset when flashing the bios to clear password from eprom on a Dell Inspirion 1525?


http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5710

UBCD4Win is a bootable CD which contains software that allows you to repair, restore, or diagnose almost any computer problem also has a bios reset tool which can remove your password and bios password
you will have to burn it to a disk as an ISO
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have removed your password you will have change fist boot back to your hard drive)
Hope this helps
