Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

A buddy of mine just bought a dell 1525-585e at future shop, and in two months he has had his hardrive calf on him twice. Is this a problem with this unit. it has the 250G hd.


Answers :

Try making sure the HD is secure. If the hard drive is secure there could be a problem with the power converter or a short in one of the SATA wires. I suggest letting a professional take a look at your specific situation.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
