My old Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop computer was sitting around collecting dust for years until I decided to repurpose it as a training laptop earlier this week.

I did a factory restore and everything was working fine until I rebooted the system and got the message:

Internal hard disk drive not found

I did a Google search and saw several  possible solutions stating that I should try to "reseat the drive". I thought this would be a major issue to fix that would require someone els, but I was able to fix the problem in less than 5 minutes

I love fixing computers! Keep in mind that I am a V.I.P. - Vision Impaired Person, with almost no central vision.


This video was most helpful to me because the video creator is working to fix the same hard drive issue on  a Dell laptop. Although his laptop model is differenrt, his video helped me see the problem and how to fix it.
