You can buy a cheap HD enclosure instead of installing a hard drive on a computer. The hard drive might be the reason the dell is dead. Your model requires a smaller second HD. See the manual for installing hard drives-

RE: 2nd hd for inspiron 3252

Mary, thanks, problem the old dell's MB was the problem and the disk was fine. Used another computer with the appropriate power connectors (3252 is lacking) and connected the old drive as a 2nd drive. Was able to copy all of the date to a USB drive for transfer. These new cheap computers save a dime by eliminating a wire to the dvd drive for power. Back in the 90's I remember the 1st time all of the externals (video, network, etc) were integrated on the MB, video fails and you need to replace the MB. Need to find a MB and will probably be back in business as a backup computer.

again, thanks....
