Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?
My laptop is a dell 6000 and it says there are no bootable devices
Maybe your hard drive faild as your sometimes incorrect use as sudden power off. Just repair it.
Your hard drive has failed, on boot (dell splash screen) press f12 to bring up boot menu, choose diagnostics option, run this and it should confirm hard drive failure on dst short test (drive self test) and give an error code (e.g 2000 - 0142), trust me on this i am a dell field service engineer
