The Repairs:

Upon talking to customer, we have suspected that the laptop hard drive may have problem. A test on the drive confirmed the drive had bad sectors and need to be replaced.

Usually replacing hard drive is an easy process, but not on this Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop. This laptop requires disassembling to replace its drive.

Let’s first remove its keyboard.

The keyboard cover will now need to be removed.

There we see the hard drive. The drive is hidden underneath keyboard and its top cover. Here we can take it out and insert new one in.

Half of the job is done. We need to reassemble the laptop and the rest will be installing Windows on the new hard drive.

Once Windows installation finishes, we should have a clean Windows on the new hard drive. Next it will need drivers to be installed (video drivers, sound drives, etc) and basic software to be installed.
