If the computer is under warranty then contact the dealer -manufacturer first-

If not you can use another computer to download a program called sea-tools - burn this to a cd disc - start your computer then go into set-up-usually by holding delete button or some times f2 change your start up boot sequence so your c/d -dvd rom boots first --insert the cd into your cd drive then restart the computer --once the computer boots from the cd follow the prompts from the sea tools program it will run a couple of checks and give you a hard drive report it will also attempt to repair your drive it it can .

I hope this helps

What's your problem?when starting up my laptop, I get the error message 'device in module bay not recognised or not connected


If you dont get into Windows this probably means that your hard drive is crashed. Just try to plug off the hard disk after switching the laptop off by un screwing the cap at the bottom of the laptop, unscrewing any screws that hold the hard disk and gently unplug the disk. Test againwithout the disk if you get the same alert, if so then its mostly the hard disk failure.

hello miss sally, hi, the operating system error may be caused by a faulty hard disk or hard disk connection cable, and the hanging thing is caused by a faulty memory module, so check then out first, swap a new memory module, and for your hard drive, take it out from your laptop and use a PC to test the drive (applicable only if your hard drive is sata.)

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 notebook. I just bought it less than a month ago. When I power down it will not start up. It goes to the dell logo page and freezes. Why??????


At less than 1 month old, this is a potential warranty call. Installing questionably safe software could have caused this problem too.
If you haven't had it long enough to accumulate a great amount of valuable data on the hard drive, you could simply try to do a factory restore with the restore disks that shipped with the computer or by holding down a key at start-up to launch a built in restore program. (the key options should be displayed on your screen during start-up)

Blue screen with error message on startup


Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.
