Try this... reboot your computer and hit f2 at the dell splash screen. This will take you in to the setup... arrow over to load setup defaults then hit f10 save changes and exit. Start here.. let me know if this works, if not we'll go to step 2

How to reseat hard drive from dell inspirion laptop?


Ambiguous question but I will attempt to help.

If you are wanting to restore the computer to factory build, then the OS disc will be required, or you can roll back with 'System Restore' How to restore Windows XP to previous state

If the hard drive is not showing in the BIOS then a replacement hard drive can be purchased for a few pounds.
Amazon co uk IDE Hard Drives Computers Accessories

Hope this helps you out?

Why won't my dell laptop cannot read the primary internal harddrive?


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.
