Question about Dell Inspiron 8000, 8100, 8200 Series Laptop Hard Drive Caddy (GPOHD-D8000 Caddy) CD-ROM Drive
When you turn it on it shows dell inspiron and then press f2 for startup if you press f2 it opens and you can set your time and date with no problem. press escape and it goes to a blank screen with a small blinking line and wont do anything else. if you turn off and then on and do nothing it goes to the blank screen with the small flashing line. cd wont play floppy wont work either. any ideas? tks edwin
Try booting with your windows xp installation cd in the drive. See if it will give you a repair or restore option when doing this. If it does not then it's possible your computer has a virus. You can check this by booting up with your anti virus cd in the drive and let it do a system scan. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
