On the bootom of your laptop you will find icon of HDD secured by 1 or 2 screws , unscrew these and slide out the hard disk . REMEMBER TO DO ALL THESE STEPS ONLY AFTER YOU DISCONNECT YOUR LAPTOP FROM ITS AC ADAPTER IF YOU KNOW HOW YOU COULD EVEN REMOVE THE BATTERY FIRST . When you are removing the HDD out notice carefully the way its was inserted because when you replug it back into its slot you HAVE TO DO SO CORRECTLY ELSE You will end up damaging the HDD AS WELL AS THE LAPTOP. Handle the HDD ONLY by its SIDES DO NOT HOLD ARE APPLY PRESSURE ON ANY OF ITS FLAT SURFACE. Read fully and follow what I have typed here . DO NOT BLAME ME FOR ANY OF YOUR MISTAKES.

I got an error 2000-0142 on my dell studio 1737. I ordered a new SATA 500gb hard drive and I need instructions on how to install it. I was running windows vista so do I need a new OS or can I reinstall it...


Hi Sarah Johnson,

You may first use the below link for manual of Studio 1737 and install a hard drive to the computer:
http://dell.to/15ZAQp1
You may then use the below link to find instructions on installing operating system using disc:
http://dell.to/GZv2m6
Then you may use the Dell OEM disc that was shipped along with the computer to install the operating system.

After reinstalling the hard drive re-run the diagnostics if you receive the same error code Contact Us.
Run the Drive Self Test (DST) from the Utility Partition also known as the 32 bit diagnostics to determine if the previous error has been corrected. If the DST from the Utility Partition does not indicate a failure of the drive, we consider the error to have been corrected and the drive does not need to be replaced.

Laptop not working Packard bell message on screen says BOOTMGR is missing


HI

I Think the laptop is trying to read the hard drive to boot up and its got a problem reading it

it may be worth turning off the laptop unplug the power core remove the hard drive from the base of the laptop usually only one or two screws to take off the cover and normally quite easy to remove

then try to start up the laptop
then turn off again
give the hard drive a quick blow over the connections
replace the hard drive
and try to boot up again

if this dont help

press power up key as well as the F8 key
this will hopefully take you into the repair options
and try the last good known configuration
or
repair my computer

if this does not work then the hard drive may be corrupt of dead

which is not good new if you havent done any backup disks or have any recovery disks
or a operating system install disk

hope you get it sorted

Why does my Acer laptop sound like it's taking off ! There is a whirring noise form underneath on the back left, i thought it might be the fan but it starts as soon as i turn it on but after some time it...


Hi Ian check to see that you have not left a CD disc in the CD rom /dvd drive--- sometimes they will cause this sort of noise on start up when the computer is looking for an operating system it may look in the cd drive first and scan the non operating system disc before booting from the hard drive

I hope this helps

How do I get my inspiron 5100 back to its original factory settings? I don't care if I loose my documents they are saved on a jump drive


Hi, if you have your Del CD, you can just put this in and select repair or reinstall. If this is not posible, follow the following:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing ESC button, or delete in some machines. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

How do I install a new hard disc


Make sure the new hard drive is using the same interface as the old drive (SATA or IDE/ATA/PATA). If you have any data you want to save, make sure you copy it to another medium (CD, DVD, flash drive, network location, another computer, etc) or you can use something like a DriveWire which will allow you to clone your existing drive onto the new (larger) hard drive before replacing it. Then just follow the upgrade instructions in your laptop manual for removing the old drive and installing the new one.
