Can you tell me step by step directions on how to reseat my hard drive on a dell inspiron 1545?



Turn off power, remove battery.
Flip it over and look to the bottom right. Remove the 4 screws with a small Phillips screw driver.
Pull out hard drive slot. Remove the screws attaching the slot, fix new hard drive in old hard drive's place.
Put screws back in, plug back in battery.
It really doesn't get any easier than this, kudos to Dell for making it easily serviceable.

I have reseated the hard drive in my inspiron 1525 laptop and it still says internal hard disk drive not found. what can i do?


Hello,
You might need to borrow another hard disk drive from your friend or relatives and try it on your laptop. If it still does not work, then we can assume that the laptop needs repair with the hard disk drive port.
Hope this helps in resolving the issue...

The hard drive may have failed or a virus has corrupted the Cmos data.
Try entering the BIOS and checking that the Cmos recognises that the hard drive is there. If it doesn't, remove the hard drive and re fit it, booting up again.

How to reseat the hard disk drive


If the HD has never been removed it is unlikely it needs reseated. You need to go into the BIOS (press F1 during start-up) and see if the HD is visable under the drives section. If it is not then it is dead and needs replaced. Data recovery may be necessary if you need anything from it.

However to reseat it, turn the laptop over and there are two screws that come out to slide the HD out from the side. Pull it out and then push it back in firmly and replace the screws.
