I have an inspiron 1525 PP29L and need to replace the hard drive. How can I tell if ones that are offered on ebay (Seagate, Western Digital, et al) will fit?

Hi, I hope this helps.

Well, it's a laptop, so as long as it say's that it's a 2.5 " size drive, it will fit space wise.

You may need to set your bios to auto to detect the drive properly, though.

I believe that you can put a 1 or 2 gig hard drive in, and the system should recognize it properly right away.

Good luck, and thanks for coming.

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance

That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

I have one of these harddrives, and bought a new computer. I now want to use it as an external Hard Drive, but do not know how to. Since I bought a macbook pro, this might be hard. It would be best to just...


The best option would be to purchase an external enclosure for your hard drive. Once inserted and connected to the enclosure you will be able to connect your hard drive to your pc/mac via a usb cable.

Hope this helps!!

Powerbook g3 will only power up for a few seconds then shut off, charger was bought on ebay as well as the computer, computer has no hard drive and only 32m of memory

Hi Alienlogic,

As noted in my other response to your other posting, more information is useful.

The computer isn't going to boot-up normally with no hard drive.

You might try target booting if you happen to have another bootable drive you can connect with (like a FireWire drive with the OS installed, or if you're trying to boot from an install CD, or Netbooting to a server).

Having only 32Mb RAM doesn't help, but in this case, your computer really has nothing to boot-up. Get yourself a hard drive you can use, or one of the options I mentioned above.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,
