Hi there,
I went to Best Buy asked which hard drive would fit,came home took the back plate off that was over the hard drive.I had to unscrew 2 tiny screws to open the panel.My laptop had one more screw holding the drive in.I used a screwdriver and a pronged tool from Radio Shack to finish taking that screw out.The drive should pull straight back if not move it side to side just a bit.Put the new one in replace the screws and the panel and then install new operating system and your good to go.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 9400 PC Notebook replace hard drive

On the underneath side of the notebook there should be two screws that are usually labeled with a picture of a drum. Remove tham and the drive should slide out. Remove the drive from the tray you slid out and reverse procedure to re-install.

SOURCE: Dell inspiron 1545 laptop and the same webcam problem.

open your my computer, click on "c" the system will tell you the information is hidden, click on the link and open up the operating system and look in the drivers or there in C and se if you can find you web cam driver, when you find it you might have to force the opening of the driver to install, and once you do that plug your web cam in and see if the system see's it and installs the drivers for the cam, if you installed the driver origanally witht he web cam installed you will have to remove the web cam and unistall the driver and re install it and then plug the web cam back in, and that should help correct the problem.

SOURCE: Dell inspiron 1721 hard drive not recognized for Vista reinstall

ok, theres a small issue with the raid controller. You have to install a 3rd party raid driver (its on the dell cd) to continue, OR, you can set that BIOS's hard drive controls to ATA or LEGACY (legacy would likely work best, but youd have no 'raid' functions, but who sets up raid drives on a notebook?). Your last option is use the dell discs to restore, and inssert the windws disc when prompted

Dell 1545 will not boot after ram installation


Before install the new ram, it is recommended that you wipe off the gold contacts of the new ram with some alcohol. You can also use pencil eraser to wipe off the contact. Did the new modules fit and lock down?
Link below to Dell - then download Service Manual. There, you'll find the procedure for removing and installing new memory module.

My Dell inspiron 1545 loads up and asks for my password but then i just get a black screen with the cureser arrow, i don't know what to do to resolve this and would appreciate any advice?


This indicates hard drive issues or the windows files are corrupted. If you have a backup recovery disc, try and install the operational system, if no luck! have the hardware tested to see if you require a replacement hard drive.

Dell inspiron 1545 laptop wont boot. Error unable to locate hard disk drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My hard drive in my 1545 inspiron is shot. I am getting a code of 2000-0146, a harddrive error. should I reinststall the OS and start over or do I need to buy a new harddrive. I can't even run safe...


If you can get to your BIOS settings, change the hard drive settings from SATA to AHCI SATA and see if does anything for you. If not, then the hard drive needs to be replaced. Any 2.5" SATA drive will work. You will need to re install your OS, drivers, and all when or if a new drive is installed. If you have a back up CD it shouldn't be hard, but you are going to loose any data that you had saved.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. The computer kept freezing and with the diagnostics test I received error code on hard drive 0F00:075D


Your hard drive is defective or the circuit (system-board) that controls it. It's cheaper to replace the hard drive then the system-board to see if that's the problem. If it's under warranty Dell will replace either parts.
