No internal disk drive was found - Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook


Answers :

Sounds as tho your hard drive has gone bad. Try re-seating the hard drive in the laptop while it is off and then re-booting. If still nothing, goto a local pc store with your old drive and ask if they have a used one around 20-40 gig for real cheap, under 20$ and test it, or ask them if they could just test with a different drive.
Turn off the computer and then press and hold the Fn key and then turn on the computer, keep holding the Fn key down untill you see diagnostic boot selected. then you can release the Fn key. it will do the test on the machine. hardware test and then if you get a rainbow press Y to continue. then after few minutes you might get an error code.
