You can watch a bios screen load up maybe even tinker around with it, even boot something off a cd, but you still need an operating system( Like windows) To really use your computer

If by "install new Windows" you are asking if you can install Windows 7 on this computer, then the answer is no. This computer was designed for XP and the hardware will not support Windows 7.

I have dell laptop latitude c400. Ican't reinstall the windows xp from external dvd writer. How can install the windows xp pls tell me?


This laptop will not give you an option to boot from a usb device or even from an external cd rom/dvd. You need to do a network install only for this particular model DEll c400. It is a long process and requires some skill of setting up a RIS server. You will also need a switch or hub to connect your laptop to it. Once your server is setup with dns, dhcp and ris you need to do a network boot and install the os. Get in touch with a professional to do it if your not familiar with this. I tried calling dell as i had a similar issue and they couldnt help me over the phone so they sent over a technician. Technician tried in vbain including removing my hdd and installing the os on his laptop and then putting the hard drive back into mine. It still didnt work. I then researched the net and figured out the only way to do it was via a remote installation.

I purchased a 'broken' c400 off ebay, rather foolishly thinking it's an easy fix.... Basically I need to find a way to install an operating system on the computer - it has no cd drive, no floppy and...


Honestly with so many things that are missing and so many things acting weird on you, your best bet is to get a known working hard drive in there and also a know working cd drive in your laptop. This way you know for sure those two components are working properly and you can try a fresh install of XP from a good working cd drive and onto a know good working hard drive.

If you now have problems then from this point it can legitimately be narrowed down to a memory, CPU or motherboard issue.

This really is the best way to try troubleshooting this problem with so many components missing.

Always a good idea to stick to doing things on the same computer instead of doing lots of swapping between hard drives.

If you need further help, feel free to let me know.

Cant install xp to dell c400 with external cd-rom


This is how I did it, you may or may not have the ability. A basic knowledge of Dos is necessary 1) I used another laptop but you could use an adapter to use the hard drive in a regular computer. 2)boot with a windows 98 boot disk, fdisk it to a fat32 partition, make the hard drive a system boot disk (format /s c:) 3) copy the i386 folder and all its contents from a full or full oem (not branded) disk to the laptop drive, also copy smartdrv and highmem.sys from the floppy (speeds thing up dramatically) and create a config.sys file with device=highmem.sys 4)physically install the hard drive back into the C400, boot to dos run smartdrv.exe, then go to the i386 folder and type winnt.exe (enter) wooo should work.
