Have 2 dell inspiron 1525s, can I use the hdd from one in the other without having to reformat the good hdd


Swapping hard drives from one computer do not work because of hardware differences even between same brands and models.
You can install Windows XP on his computer but you need the Windows XP installation CD and you will need to use the product installation code from your computer. It is printed on the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop.

Pavillion zv5000 won't boot


Hello.The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.Hope this helps.

My Dell M70 screen flashes on and off and i have to turn laptop off and restart.


Try a lower resolution like 800X600 to see if it stops. If it does not, the possible issue is the connection between the laptop and the screen. I've had to replace screens for this issue as a last resort and fixes it.

Hello guys. I need help with my hp dv4 1225dx pavilion. It all started with not powering with battery power. But the battery is in perfect condition. When I plug in the power cord. It comes on and I...


Hi there,
It sounds like a hardware issue, if you're getting the LED's blinking when pressing power, there IS power to your mainboard (which is a good thing). Some manufacturers have placed LED blink codes within the system to let you know what's going on, but I have a feeling it's either A) your battery or B) your hardware, such as a bad RAM stick.
Try removing the battery and with the power plug connected switch the laptop on. If it works, you've got a bad battery.
Try removing a single RAM stick or replacing both.
You could search HP Pavilion LED blink codes to further address the issue.

Display on but back light not on HP nx 6110


Hello,

This could be an issue with the inverter problem. Are you using a universal adapter? If so, this could be the possible reason why the inverter died. It is not supplying the correct input for the inverter, thus the damage.

Please consider to bring this to an authorized HP service center. If its still under warranty, the better.

hi thanks for using fixya!

what happened to your old laptop? you cannot turn on anymore your old laptop? I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center so that they can open it, and remove the hard disk from the old laptop then they can connect it by using USB cable then, you may copy your files to your new laptop!

If you need further assistance, let me know!

Pls rate me positively! thanks!
