The hdd has been password protected. without the password, you cannot access the pc for use. who owns the pc? i suspect it isn't your pc so i won't tell you how to get around it.

I forgot my password and i have no recovery disks


Any computer shop can remove the password for you in a few minutes. I use Hirens Boot Disc when I need to do it. But if you don't know what you are doing you can wipe or corrupt the Operating System.

Dell inspiron 531 with vista home premium, sata DVD/hdd, wont boot past bios screen, blinking cursor in top left corner. with nothing hooked up, says no boot devices available. i have tried each one solo,...


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows or any other OS is missing . Since you are getting it without even an hdd connected it means that the southbridge is defective. Which means that the motherboard is dead, replace it.

Operating system is missing is the message shown on my dell


Boot to the F12 menu, see if you can boot to the HDD diagnostics. If not, boot to the Dell Resource CD, run the HDD diagnostics from there. If Diags fail, replace the HDD. If they pass, boot to the Vista DVD, then run a repair of the operating system

Problem related to bios setup


it doesn't matter. if you are running 32 bit operating ssytem. you can get majority of the hardware drivers.
however, if the operating sytem is 64-bit, you can't run it on a 32-bit machine. that is what determine by the BIOS.
since you have install the sytem and it seems running fine. I would just leave it alone.
