It is probably under the bottom left hand side cover of your laptop.
Look at this posting:

and notice the unlabeled cover with 2 ovals bottom left.

You can buy a replacement anywhere locally that may sell a 2,5" hard drive, or amazon, ebay etc will stock 2.5" laptop hard drives. You must be aware the drives will be blank so you need a way of installing Windows back onto the new hard drive, post back if you need anymore help

Toshiba laptop wont boot correctly. Upon start up it flashes blue screen. Does not recognize optical drive to try to fix windows 8 or reinstall windows 8.1.


Sounds like the hard drive has an issue. Do you hear a very faint clicking sound when it tries to boot up? put your ear near the front of the laptop, bottom of keyboard area and listen for a clicking sound. if you hear a click click click click sound repeating continuously, its a failing hard drive. If you hear ths sound, you will need to buy a replacement hard drive. Replacing it is easy. Turn your laptop upside down and look for the small door that houses your hd. Unscrew the door and take hard drive out. Now you take this hard drive to Staples and ask them for a replacement. Once you know what you need, whether Sata or IDE hard drive, you can buy a replacement cheaply on eBay or buy it from any computer store. pop the hard drive back in and then you should be able to install a new operating system on the laptop. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then you may have a corrupted windows boot. Have you tried booting in safe mode? as you turn the power on, hold down the f8 button. You will get a screen asking if you want to boot in safe mode. Select, safe mode with networking. If it boots normally in safe mode, you can then put in your windows cd and do a repair. If you cannot boot into safe mode, and you have tried replacing hard drive, but cd/dvd is still not working, then you may need o take it in or diagnostics. You can buy very cheaply on eBay, a connector that will allow you to connect your hard drive to another computer via USB. This will allow you to test the hard drive and also possibly get data of of it, provided the hard drive is not too badly damaged. I hope this helps.. Please ask any questions you might have.

Error code 2000-0146 do i need new hard drive if so what is the replacement hard drive for a dell inspiron 1525 notebook pc thx


that error actually refers to a hard drive issue/failure. You may attempt a reformat and reinstall, but if it fails, you can proceed to get a new hard disk. You can get in touch with Dell for warranty replacement if applicable, or order a new hard drive. You may then decide either to get the same capacity or upgrade to a higher capacity drive.

DELL STUDIO 1535 WILL NOT BOOT UP ERROR CODE 0146


That is a bad hard drive or sector in hard drive code. Try and run an FDISK on the drive or reformat the drive with your factory restore disk. If you are unable to format the hard drive replace it with a new one. That takes a SATA "serial ATA" hard drive. They are universal so any manufacture name replacement will work.

Error code how can I fix it error 1000-0141 on dell inspiron 1501


This error code indicates the issue with the Hard Drive.
As per the resources available now, it is clear that the Hard Drive is failing.
It would be better to backup all the important Data before the Hard Drive crashes.
Once you have backed up all the Data, it would be better to replace the Hard Drive.
If you have the Technical Specifications and Hard Drive Replacement instructions, you may replace the Hard Drive by yourself.
It is recommended to get the Hard Drive replaced at the Service Center.

Hope this helps.

The hard drive has failed. If you're in warranty, contact Dell for a warranty replacement of the drive - it's a customer-replaceable part.
If you're out of warranty, look on ebay for a good deal on a brand new hard drive for your Dell Inspiron 1525

Replace Hard Drive


Replacing a hard drive is simple, remember everything on a computer concerning hardware is plug and play. Remove the old hard drive and find a suitable replacement, it should snap right out, there may be a couple screws holding it, but once you have it out just plug in the new drive, format and partition the drive and put up your operating system.
