    Inspiron 7000 help

    Locked

    by marc ·

    My laptop just started turning off by itself after about an hour or so. Then when I tried to power it back on I got a message saying “Operating System not found.” Before I could wait an hour or so before I could get back into windows now it doesn’t seem to load windows at all. I’m pretty sure it may be a hardware issue with my hard drive but I’m not sure. I don’t have the Diagnostics cd that came with my laptop 5 years ago. Nothing is useful on Dell’s website. Have you seen this before? Thanks

      Dying after an hour would seen to indicate an intermittent heat related hardware problem. It would now appear that it has become a permanent problem.

      It could be hard disk, it could be the IDE controller or any number of others.

      Really a job for a laptop tech I reckon
