Internal hard drive product compatible for Dell Inspiron 1525

I need to replace the hard drive in my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. The current I is Seagate 2.5 ", 160 GB 5400 RPM and. The space must be 500 GB or less. I prefer Seagate Momentus Thin ST500LT012 500 GB at 5400 RPM. This would be compatible with my laptop. Otherwise, what are you kindly suggest another replacement for this drive.

Any 2.5 "SATA drive will work - if you go with a 7 mm disc ("thin") you might have a spacer for mounting the drive, because the system is designed to take the road of 9.5 mm and the thinner one is unable to make contact with the motherboard without spacer.

I'd go with WD or HGST drives - Seagate had problems of reliability of the end.

  • Need to driver and application for Dell Inspiron 15R n5010 webcam model.


    Recently, 2 days before I bought a portable model 15R n5010 with back support. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate OS on this machine.

    LAN and Web cam dirvers (the default Microsoft web cam driver) got installed automatically. While all the drivers and applications downloaded from the web site of DELL and installed correctly.

    Now, I want good built-in web cam driver and application for Dell 15R n5010 modem.

    Please let me know the link from where I can download and install the driver and application.

    Thanks in advance... !!!

    But you need to install a video capture as NCH software and many others to take snapshots of your built-in webcam

  • Pavilion p6310y: WD10EZEX hard drive is compatible for the Pavilion p6310y?


    I'm looking for a replacement of the hard disk of my Pavilion p6310y. I found a hard disk WD10EZEX on Amazon. It has the same features as the WD10EADS came with the pc when I bought it. But with some better features. The WD10EZEX is compatible?

    Hi, the active drive WD10EADS is a HARD SATA 2.0, while you are looking in WD10EZEX is a SATA 3.0. However, this should not be a problem since the SATA standard is backward compatible and a SATA 3.0 drive should work on a SATA 2.0 port. The difference in the size of the buffer and the ROTATION speed should not be a problem too, so you should be able to use a WD10EZEX in your system. Be sure to do a good backup of all your data on an external HARD drive before you start to replace your HARD drive. Good luck.

  • Dell inspiron 1525 2008 model replacement hard drive


    My dell inspiron 1525 hard drive was faulty and I am looking for a replacement drive. While looking for the hard drive, I have found there are 2 types of hard disk of 2.5 inch SATA

    1, height 9mm

    2 height 7.5 mm

    Can anyone confirm that it adapts to my laptop?

    Thank you


    Older models have the readers of 9 mm. Get a Crucial BX200 240 GB SSD will be 7.5 mm but they will understand a spacer so that the SSD fits. The SSD will make your system much more vivid:

    Using the Dell recovery disks to reinstall?

    The origonal drive failed?

    If you are using a real MS win dvd during the first part of the installation it can not find a drive or ask a driver, then the driver is obtained from Dell, specific to your model, its likely the driver sata, you need to download to say a USB and then point to this file when the installation application the third-party driver.

  • Inspiron 1545 - hard drive replacement, new drive SATA not found 'internal hard drive not found ".

    Hi all

    I'm trying to install Win7 in an Inspiron 1545 with a new SATA hard drive that has been purchased. When I insert the disc, I get "Internal hard drive not found." I checked the drive does not appear in the BIOS, I already tried to reinstall the drive several times. In addition, I tried to load the chipset drivers, drivers SATA, etc. of the Dells, the Reader site still does not appear in the installation of the OS when starting on a DVD or in the bios.

    I do not think that there is a problem with the new drive, I plugged the new drive in another Dell laptop model and it recognizes the drive in the BIOS, also I can always start on the previous in this laptop without problem hard drive when I plug it in.

    Is there a specific driver, etc. should I use for the drive to be recognized or have other thoughts?

    It's strange - either the new HDD has a rare compatibility with your embedded controller problem (I use a 500Gbyte in my 1545 no probs)) or it is a mechanical problem. I look at the physical dimensions and compare your original hdd by the new. Watch the video (even if it's on a 1525 (similar to a 1545) and a SSD hard drive)-go to 02:20

  • How can I add an extra internal hard drive to my dell dimension 8300

    I installed an extra internal hard drive to my dell dimension 8300. He only appears in "Device Manager" and shows to work but he does not appear in 'my computer' and has not assigned a drive letter. It's a western digital 1200js-22mhbo. My drive root 'C' is also a wd1200jd from western digital. Can someone tell me what I do to get it to show up with a drive letter, and I have to format it? Also, there is a way to format so I can install programs on it as my "C" drive or I just will be only able to use it as extra storage? Thanks a lot for your help!

  • Internal hard drive inside Dell PowerEdge R710

    Well then clarify first of all. This server is NOT used in a business environment. Its literally being used as a home media server (Yes, exaggerated way I know but I got for free so who is complaining).

    IM currently using a PowerEdge 2950 as my media server, I just took his upgrade, a R710 Gen 2 and I would like to use all 6 bays at the front for hard drives that I can put the plates on instead of 1 for the operating system and then everything else for the media.

    How I would go about installing an internal hard drive, preferably a SSD, inside the R710. I know it has a free SATA port but I can't seem to see the spare power cables or cables molex as there is in the Gen 3 2950 I.

    If it is not possible, it's quite good, but I would like to have installed an internal hard drive.

    I know there is a USB port, but I use Windows Server R2 2012 (probably soon to be Server 2016) but I'm not sure if Windows Server can be installed on the internal USB port.

    If you need to record, or on the label of service I can give you this information.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you


    Thanks for the clarification. It's something that you can try, but it is not supported and there is no guarantee that the SSD will be detected and it works perfectly. Try this P/N GP700 cable
