What's wrong with the hard drive?


Sounds like the HDD has either firmware issues or just faulty.

Restore factory settings


You need to have a Dell "restore" or "reinstallation" CD/DVD that match with your laptop's operating system's key number (it is located on the bottom of your laptop). If you don't have it anymore, then as far as I know, you can use a Dell Windows XP Pro DVD/CD to reinstall the operating system. Later, you need to use other computer to download some necessary drivers; copy them to your D810 notebook and install them. I have this kind of DVD, so please let me know if you need it.

The laptop won't load past the welcome screen. I can get it to start up, and go to a start in safe mode etc. but it won't load past the welcome screen.


Hello,

Your computer is experiencing a no boot problem which means that the operating system is corrupted. You can do a start up repair to fix the computer but if it won't fix it then that's the time that you need to reinstall the whole operating system.

It could have been very helpful if you provided us with your operating system so that we can provide you with the exact troubleshooting. However, I just presume that you are using windows VISTA or Windows 7. However, this troubleshooting also works with windows XP.

Before you start the start up repair. You need the Operating System Installation disc from Microsoft.

1. Insert the disc in the dvd/cd drive.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Once you see the "press any key to boot to cd" message. Press any key.
4. It will bring you to a page where it will ask you to INSTALL or to REPAIR. Just click on repair.
5. It might ask you to load the drivers. Just click ok or next.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

However, if start up repair won't fix the problem, Clean Reinstallation is the next step. Clean reinstallation will delete everything in your computer including the files, pictures, etc. that you have saved. But you cannot really access them anymore since the computer won't boot up.

I'm am providing you with the links to the tutorial on how to reinstall the operating system.

1. WINDOWS XP REINSTALLATION TUTORIAL
2. Windows 7 Reinstallation Tutorial
3. Windows Vista Installation Guide

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya.

Possess dell inspiron 6000 centino wireless, need drivers and xp


You can contact Dell Technical Support and see if they will send you a new XP CD. All the drivers can be downloaded at Support.dell.com for that system. If you can't get Dell to replace the CD, try Ebay. Here is an Example:

Backup your data and then install. It is obvious if you won't backup, you will loose your data.

Dell media direct won't work


Hello,

Here is the steps,

1.Turn on your computer.

2.Insert the reinstallation media (Dell Media Direct CD/DVD) into the CD/DVD drive, then restart the computer.

3. press F12 when the bios page comes up and then select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.

"Option 1" from the menu if you wish to use all of the hard drive for you operating system installation. This is the most common selection and how is your computer was originally shipped to you, unless you specified an operating system partition size at the time you ordered you computer.

"Option 2" to designate a size for your operating system and have a data partition. This allows you to specify a size for the operating system partittion, leaving the remainder, of the hard drive configured as a "data" partition ("D")

4. Once you have prepared the drive and you have returned to the main recovery menu, remove the installation media and replace it with you operating system reinstallation media. Select the option to reboot your computer. If your computer does not automatically start the media, press <F12> to access the boot menu and select the Cd/DVD boot option.

5.Install your operating system, select the Primary partition when prompted. If you have two hard drives, select the primary partition on the same disk where hte media direct partition resides. Once the OS is installed and the necessary drivers are installed you can begin the reinstallation of the dell mediaDirect software.

Good Luck,
Austin

Reinstallation of XP operating system to my Inspiron 1200


you can use any Windows Xp CD to install the operting system on your laptop.
however, you need to download few device driver like network, audio, video, chipset, etc..... from the manufactures' website and place them on a CD before you start. otherwise you will have network driver fro you get on the Internet.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD BIOS UPDATE. unless you are 110% sure you need it.

Good luck!
