    Dell Inspiron 1525 - Internal hard disk drive not found
    « on: March 27, 2010, 07:09:22 AM »
    Hello ..

    This is for my friend who has a dell inspiron 1525.
    We have done what it says and reseated the hard drive, but we are still getting this message.

    I have ran the diagnostics test, and confirmed the the drive is not being detected in the BIOS
    We have tryed to reseat the drive a few times but without any luck..

    Is there anything else we could try, but luck is not on our side at the moment as we have no other laptop we can try this drive on.

    I was wondering what might have caused this, ryan my friend says he had fallen asleep and had left the laptop on for about 10 hours  , it was buried in the bed, so could over heating have caused this
