When you say Reboot, I assume you mean re-install Windows XP. Many issues can occur if you do not install the drivers properly after installing Windows. The proper order is as Follows:

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver

Also after installing Windows and the drivers, you'll need to go to Java.com and install Java, then adobe.com and install the latest Flash and Shockwave Players.

It is also recommended that you have the latest BIOS flash of the system. The current bios version is A09

I have two identical Dell Inspiron 6000 that have had hard disc failure... each after the warranty expired.. is it worth replaceing hard drive, or should spend the money and time on new machine?


Hard drives are worth replacing. Its cheaper compaired to buying a new notebook. You can even choose a larger hdd according to your preference. I suggest you buy a seagate because it has a better quality and has 2 yrs. of warranty

My Dell Lap Top needs a hard drive installed


That is real easy, underneath the laptop you will see about where the drive would end, are some screws, simply remove these and the drive will slide out, it connects via, a plug & socket, this fits onto a standard drive, you simply need to get a suitable Hard Drive, either the same or bigger, any laptop drive will usually work, and refit the converter, if it uses one, and plug back in, replace screws. Then using a Windows Install DVD, st BIOS to "Boot" from CD/DVD and boot off the Install disc, and follow instructions, during the install you will partition, and Format to NTFS, and install the Operating System.. your back in business. First though you will need to download ALL drivers, Sound, Video, Ethernet, Touchpad and so on... from the manufacturers web site for your exact model & operating system.

I've a Dell Inspiron 1505 that runs well except it locks up during some videos. The display cracks up and the sound freezes, mouse freezes. Any advice? Is this the video/graphics card? I paid a shop...


if the freezing only happens when playing videos then this is not hard drive issues. try this one, download the latest video driver for you video then remove the old one then install the new video card driver which you just download. if fails try to check and consider the ram issue.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.

Selecting a replacement hard drive for Dell Inspiron 8500


pull out the hard drive and look on it see if it's an ATA or SATA
the brand does not matter, just the connection type I stated.

best place is here


Also, go to DELL.COM and support, type in your tag# and look for your system specs, it will tell you there what kind ok HD it has BUT best way is to pull HD out and look at the label.


this is a very simple job to do. just take your time.
