Laptop Hard drive
My mum came to me and said the laptop is not working, she showed me it wouldn't boot. I tried restarting in safe mode and it didn't boot then either, then I tried a repair installation but it wanted the administrator password which none of us knew (preset by Dell) so then I tried a reinstall. It went fairly well until it got to "12 minutes remaining" and got stuck. I tried installing to a different directory and same thing, got stuck but this time at 16 minutes. I thought it might have been corrupt file system so I went to reformat it and it got stuck at 70% so now I am suspecting the hard drive. the laptop is no longer in its warranty so now I have decided to get a new hard drive for it. I have put in a hard drive for the computer I am currently using but I am not farmiliar with the layout of laptops
I have tried taking it appart but I cannot figure out how to take its monitor off so I can get to the screws under it.
the laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2650
are there any guides to the layout of this laptop?
