Hi,

Try to use a bootable disc (usually OS discs or recovery discs). Boot to disc by changing the boot device priority into CD/DVD drive. If your unit will boot to disc, the problem is the operating system. However, if it will not boot to the bootable disc, surely, the optical drive of your unit is defective. In this case, either u need to reinsert it, or replace it with new one.

Hope this helps.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and the dvd and cd drive wont work


Hi
First of all, check that the computer can seet he DVD drive in "My Computer" (By "see" i mean that there is an icon theres showing that it knows there is a DVD present.**

If there is, when you insert a disc, can you see the green ready light on the DVD?

If you have tried several DVD and CD,s and none work, there is a possible power issue with the drive
You can try and remove the screw that retains the drive into the laptop, pull out the drive and re-insert it gently but firmly, sometimes this wakes up the drive.

** if the computer cannot see the drive, please repost and I'll go through the proceedure to get it recognised

My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

How can I format my inspiro 1525 laptop


1. Backup all your documents and files that you like to use after format.
2. Insert your windows bootable cd and enable/turn first booting from cd-rom from BIOS setup (usually when you press del or F2 on computer starting).
3. After restart computer asks to press any key to boot from windows cd.
4. Then you get blue screen with lot of funny text you can read all that if you like or press next then choose format drive c: NTFS and follow instructions.
5. After installation you get nice clean desktop without these annoying icons. First thing you may like to do is install all missing drivers. If you dont have original drivers cd then you can download them from dell support site you may backup network drivers to usb memorystick before format if you dont have original drivers cd.

6. Have fun :)
