Dell Inspiron 1525 Hard drive
\015 I had the same problem and needed to replace the hard drive. The good new is that he new drive only costs $65 delivered. The bad news is that you have lost everything on the old one. The even wort news is that my new hard drive also failed. All of this in less than 9 month. Oh, by the way, I jut switched to Mac and ordered a new MacBook Pro. I suspect the cause of my hard drive failures is due to overheating from blocked intake vents on the bottom of the laptop.\015
Dell INSPIRON <br />\015\012I can hear the hard drive running but laptop said it is not detecting drive
There is a trick to getting an overheated and damaged hard drive to run for a short period of time, maybe enough to get your data off of it. Place the damaged hard drive in a tupperware bowl with a lid. Get a can of refrigerant from an auto parts store, wear gloves....open the refrigerant with the attached hose and direct the refrigerant into the bowl keeping as much in there as possible. This will freeze the bearings and in a lot of cases allow the device to work for short period of time. This of course will not work if the problem is a damaged read/write head or controller card.
