Have you already asked your sister on the HDD password that she had set on the laptop before she gave it to you? Only your sister may know it since she was the owner of the laptop before.

It's a 'failsafe' - You will need to go back into the BIOS - double check the boot settings - and verify the HDD is set to Auto - make sure the RAM installed is the RAM shown on the boot screen.
Ok, once that is done reboot 2x - hit no keys - if it request F1 to continue, CTRL/ALT/DEL reboot. - go into BIOS, go to boot options find the part that states "stop on error" and disable that... reboot.
If that doesn't help Contact me here. I've other solutions to try as it is a DELL and I've dealt with them for years.

No recovery disc - help with restore please?!


Hi Darren have a go with this one it may just work depending how mallicious the attack was .

windows default administrator account password is blank by default.

boot windows in sfae mode by pressing f5 key after theaventscreen has gone off when windows brings up the log in page use the administrator account and no password if this does not work and your laptop wont boot from cdrom then you will need to get a techie to open up the laptop and reset your bios so that it loses the bios password and then you can change the boot order so that you can booot from the cd rom drive

I Hope this was helpfull

I am Having problem restoring my dell 2400


Well you may have a bad mother board or IDE port to which the HDD is connected. If the CD is connected to the same IDE channel as the HDD, move it to IDE1 which is the second IDE channel. If it then recognizes your CD, IDE0 is bad and you need to replace your board. Let me know how things are connected inside the computer.

Computer would not boot up, only showed red light


I'd say power supply first.

If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.

Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.

Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)
