Sure, sorry. Dell Inspiron 1525, a laptop. First time EVER had a problem.

You can try the following link to download the service manual for your system

And here is the instructions for removing the hard drive

Try to reseat the hard drive and then turn on the system. If you still receive the same error, then I think the problem is due to a faulty hard disk drive


Please let me know

Well, I've removed and reset twice and I am still getting the same error! Don't understand, was working just fine 2 days ago and now, nothing! I am on a "1521" I purchased 6 mos prior to the 1525 and no problems. I HATE the idea of purchasing another hard drive for a laptop I've had for just over a year. Thank you very much for your help. I just really needed to know WHERE the hard drive was located and you answered that for me. Guess now, I need to argue with Dell!
