I'd say that it's definately worth replacing the hard drive. You can get a good deal on a new hard drive at pricewatch.com

Bought a dell lap top..at flea mkt...cant get on line without a pass word..(previous owner) what i have to do to get it going...


It sounds like the hard drive has been locked with a password. This is the most secure method to protect your data if the computer has been compromised or stolen. It is virtually impossible to unlock a hard drive password because the password itself is written on the hard drive and cannot be removed even if you install the hard drive on another computer. Since you cannot access the hard drive you cannot access the password. You need to get a new hard drive or one that doesn't have a password lock. If it's a Windows account password, you can remove it by getting a software password remover - these can be downloaded from the Internet.

My dell inspiron 6400 lap top will not do anything when i swich it on only show up the dell screensaver can u help iv tryed swoping the hard drive and it dosent help


I had a similar problem. I fitted a new hard drive loaded windows and on the first re boot i had no OS again.
I went into the bios checked the boot order and also the hard drive booting options. My settings had unticked the hard drive as a bootable drive. When i ticked it and installed the original HD it worked again.
At least i have a spare Hard drive in the draw :)

I have two identical Dell Inspiron 6000 that have had hard disc failure... each after the warranty expired.. is it worth replaceing hard drive, or should spend the money and time on new machine?


Hard drives are worth replacing. Its cheaper compaired to buying a new notebook. You can even choose a larger hdd according to your preference. I suggest you buy a seagate because it has a better quality and has 2 yrs. of warranty

My Dell Lap Top needs a hard drive installed


any 2.5" ATA-6 (a.k.a. Ultra ATA) will work

Your laptop came with a:
Ultra ATA Hard Drive, 4200RPM hard drive

I suggest this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136129

But, Any 2.5" ATA-6...also known as ultra ATA, will suffice..........go with 5400 RPM speed drive.......I suggest either Western Digital or Seagate...as they are the most dependable brands of hard disc drives.

And to replace it, here is an online service manual to guide you:

There ya go!

My lap top says that my hard drive is going to fail


You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.
