    Did you look on the bios to see if there was an option to recognize the hard drive?

My Laptop is Dell Latitude D600 (A16) Everytime I tried to power up, Splash screen appears with blue bar and when going into next screen this message appears " No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry...


Check your BIOS, by pressing F2 and see if the hard drive is recognized. It should indicate the MFR next to the hard drive listing. If it's not there, then you might have a bad hard drive. If it is there, try re-installing the operating system with the set-up disk. You can also go to the Dell website, enter you service tag number, and get technical support for your particular laptop. It might have a recovery partition in the hard drive to recover to factory settings.

I was working on my Dell Latitude D610 last night and this morning; I left it running while I went out for a few errands. When I came back, everything had shut down and I am now getting this error message...


Do you know how to bring up the bios ? (try pressing del or f10, f12, f2 while the dell logo is showing at startup) usually one of these will open the bios. Now look for your "primary master" click on it and then click on populate when the option becomes available.
As long as the bios can "see" your hard drive it is still good.

from here you have 2 options.
the first is to pull out the hard drive and put it into a usb enclosure and reinstall your OS and software onto a new hard drive, while retaining access to your files and such on the external drive.
the second is to use the recovery tools on the OS install disk to try and repair the MBR (master boot record).

Hello. I have a Dell Latitude PP01L laptop. I am


Hi,

That's a hard one. Not all laptops provide that kind of information of date of manufacture.
If yours does then it will be printed on one of the stickers that are underneath the laptop.

If there are no dates on any of the stickers then you are stuck there.



Regards.

Dell latitude C610


From the Bios, load all the default settings and then check the bios SATA port settings. If it is set to AHCI, change it to IDE to boot from Hard Drive. This should solve the problem
