Call DELL. Give them your Service Tag and they will send you a new one, even if the warranty has expired.

Dell Latitude xp pro product but I lost the cd.


Yes you can.
After installation you will need to activate it. If it wont activate online, then there is telephone activation option - always works.

Dell Resource CD - not working in Windows XP SP3 version


You are using the Dell Resource CD provided by the manufacturer. This CD may not work with new versions of Internet Explorer that come with SP3 installations (if you reinstalled from a Windows XP CD not provided by Dell or if you did the Microsoft SP3 update).
You're only solution would be to use your "Service Tag" number underneath, for laptops (or on the back/side for Desktops), of your computer and go to http://support.dell.com to download the drivers for your specific system. If this computer doesn't have the drivers for you to be able to go to the internet, use a second computer and go to the site. Then download the individual drivers listed (the latest dated drivers will work best).
Once you've downloaded mainly the Video, Network, Audio drivers, use a USB Flash drive (sometimes called USB Key, USB pen drive, USB drive, etc) and copy what's been downloaded onto it. Do not double click on the files while they're on the second computer.
Once on the machine with Windows XP SP3, double click on each downloaded file (1 at a time) and follow the on-screen insctructions to install the driver. You should be fine afterwards. :) Let us know how it goes, and rate us. :)

Dell Vostro will not boot up


During startup, just before the Windows splash screen appears, you should be able to hit the F8 key for a list of startup options. It looks from your post as if you know how to do this.

One of those choices should be to disable automatic restart on system failure. (or words very similar to that.) Use this choice to get into safe mode if you can, or into regualar windows.

Once there, go to the system restore feature and restore to a date when everything worked.

This error message is a message pointing to a piece of software (as opposed to hardware, as so many of these messages are).

The next best fix is to reinstall the OS from the ground up. this may be a major hassle, depending on the data you have on that hard drive.

Good luck

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.

Hi Vostro owner.Dont worry,this can be sorted.Sound issue is not because u installed windows from a Non-dell cd.But i would ask to call up dell because they will provide u the XP disc that should have come with the system or even it is lost from you.Also then we can download the driver from support site : www.support.dell.com and install it.It is just a mere coincidence now.But the reason i'm asking to get cd from Dell is so that u can avoid any future problems with installing XP from a non-dell cd
