RE: Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 Crashed

My husbands Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 crashed. There’s no factory reset option available & he’s having difficulty using the reinstall disc that came with the computer. Can we just replace the hard drive to fix the issue? If so what hard drive should I buy & can he just use the install disc that came with the computer? Will he need anything else? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as he’s currently deployed & it’s a terrible time for this issue. TIA!

Given the difficult dis-assembly of the laptop, if there is no vital data on it and this being the holiday season, you may want to consider buying a new laptop. Preferably one with easier access to the hard drive.

If there are important files on that hard drive, you will may want Dell to do the repair.
