Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

When I turn on my dell 1525 it says internal no bootable devices


Answers :

Ok, it sounds like the Hard drive is not being seen by the unit.
\015\012Try this, Enter your BIOS setting, some units F-2, some del, some F-9 or 10.
\015\012On the last page, choose default settings.
\015\012Reboot the unit and see if the Hard drive is seen.
\015\012Remove any disks from your CD/DVD drive or floppy and disconnect any external devices.
\015\012If that does not fix the problem, remove and reseat the Hard drive and memory.
\015\012If you can get into windows, check your device manager for flags and you may need to load your hardware drivers.
\015\012Hope this works for you.
The BIOS is not reading your hard drive. Take the drive out and reboot into BIOS. Make sure the SATA port is enabled. Turn the laptop off and reinstall the hard drive, make sure it seats all the way and is secure in its caddy. Reboot and see if it reads the drive.
