As long as the drive operates, it shouldn't be a huge deal. New drives cost about $25, and replacement is easy (just slide the latch on the underside of the laptop).

I wouldn't use the trade in program that best buy has. They'll usually offer you a really low estimate and sometimes they actual amount will differ a lot from the estimate. Just sell it on ebay, you'll get a lot more money

You can take your laptop to other countries without any other problem.

My dell inspiron m5010 doesn't turn on I've tried

You don't turn off a machine when updating the BIOS for any reason.
the system boots from the BIOS, and if the BIOS is corrupt due to an incomplete update. it's going to be very tricky to get it back on. contact Delly on the issue. best of luck Ram

Dell Inspiron 15R 7 beeps of death

Your best bet is to contact DELL themselves. There may have been a silent recall for your product which you don't know about, and they might repair it at their cost, But with this kind of situation, always go to the manufacturer first.

Inspiron m5010 won't power on

Remove main battery and try again, next! have the power adapter checked for correct voltage, if okay! sub the ram memory one at a time and test, if nothing! the DC jack in the computer is a common issue, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address, at this point I recommend a professional to assess.

M5010 - Tested DC Jack (PC wont turn on at all) and i noticed it shows 1.7V instead of 1.9V Is it bad?

The Dell Inspiron laptop mains adapter output voltage is 19 volts.
If your adapter has an output voltage of 1.7 volts then the adapter is faulty and you need to purchase a new one.

My Dell Inspiron's DVD has suddenly begun making a loud humming noise when I play a video? Why?

This is usually happens if the DVD drive receives too little power from the laptop or maybe it's just needs a cleaning.
I would try first to clean it from the inside, using a cleaning CD. If that doesn't help you will have to check maybe with a technician if the drive is receiving enough electricity.
Some info- Dell is known for her malfunctioning drives, mine sucks. It reads okay, but burns crappy CD+DVD. sometimes these drives needs to be replaced after a while

replace the CD Rom, they are available on the net. You may pay $35-$50 and you'll be home free. You may even find an updrade i.e. DVD burner, etc. They are also very easy to replace - one screw on the bottom of laptop and just pull the CD unit out.
