If this is happening from a cold start press Ctrl Alt Del, it should boot ok, then, if it still persists make sure the system is set to boot from hard drive in the bios settings

My dell dimension 4400 does not read the hard drive in bios


It is either your Hard Drive has gone out or it could be the power connector from the power supply has gone out. It also could be the SATA / IDE cable has gone out. I doubt that is your mother board however there is a very slim chance it could be.

Need step by step instructions to reinstall XP home edition recovery CD on dell 4400 32 system is damaged and I can not open anything


Insert your System CD (the one with the operating system on it). Boot up the computer and press F12 during the couple of seconds at the very beginning of the boot sequence to access the boot menu. You'll want to specify the CD-ROM as your 1st boot device. The system will boot from the system CD and you just follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system. Just realize, this will restore your computer to "out of the box" condition. You'll have to update Windows XP several times as well as your drivers. Also, ALL data that was on the computer will be lost forever.

No boot device available


Make sure all the connections to the Hard Drive are tight and secure. Then see if it will boot. If not then try loading a windows cd and see if it detects the Hard drive. If it does not the hard drive is no good if it does try running the automated system recovery you may have a corrupt MBR file.
