All you need is a Dell XP disk.
You can install xp most of the time without having to activate.

Has to be a Dell disk tho.

My dell latitude 620 is not accessing hard disk, giving report of 'No Boot sector'


> no Boot sector

A computer "boots" by reading the first few sectors from the diskette (or CD-ROM) or disk-drive, and then running the software that just was read, to "kick-start" the whole process of starting Windows.

Thus, "no boot sector" could mean:
* the disk could not be read at all,
* the information was read from the disk, but it was recognized as being a valid computer-program

So, it's possible that your disk-drive is "dying".
Take your computer to a computer-store, for more trouble-shooting.

I TOOK MY LAPTOP TO THE GEEK SQAUD.they said i need to order a system restore cd for a dell latitude 620.something about 5 dl that have been deleted or destroyed.can you help me


The dl's they mention are Driver files.

A Driver file is a small piece of software that allows communication between the Operating System, and a device.

Operating System:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are some examples of an O/S.
Operating System

Device:
The hardware components inside the laptop, or outside, that are, or can be connected to the laptop.

Some examples of inside hardware device components;
Harddrive, (Hard Disk),
Optical drive, (CD or DVD drive),
Wireless adapter,
are just a few.

Some examples of outside hardware devices, (Peripheral's)
Printer, scanner, Fax machine, copier, (Or an All-In-One machine),
External harddrive,

The Drivers MUST match YOUR laptop.
Has to be for a Dell Latitude D620.
Also has to be for the Operating System that is installed on your Dell laptop.

You can download the drivers, and install them, IF Dell has what it is needed.
Some of the Drivers are within the Operating System itself.
They will also be matched to THAT particular Dell laptop you have.

The easiest, and best method IMHO, is for you to obtain THE System Restore disk from Dell, for YOUR laptop, and fix your laptop yourself.
(Cheaper too!)

1) Turn the laptop on
2) Insert the System Restore disk in the optical drive tray, close the tray.
3) When asked do a Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

After you get the System Restore disk, come back here, and someone will lead you through it, if you have problems.

{I have heard the disk/s are not cheap. Not a 'fanboy' of Geek Squad either)
{OH! Did i say that outloud? lol}

Dell Latitude D620 Full System Recovery?


It's easy to miss the point at which you hit Ctrl + F11. You need to hit Ctrl + F11 at the point you see the blue bar across the top of the screen, it will display www.dell.com. If this is still not working you can use the XP operating system CD to reinstall XP and the Dell drivers CD to reinstall the sound, video, network and other drivers. If Dell didn't send you the operating system CD, you should contact them.
