    Same problem but I have Vista Professional. It gets about 70% done then won't go beyond. I have tried the disk that came with the laptop and even a new copy of Vista.

The vostro 1700 was never meant to run anything newer than windows xp, major driver conflicts, there are workarounds but if you don't know what you're doing, bring it to a professional. otherwise install XP or windows 7.yes windows 7 works fine on vostro laptops

try to turn off security center and any other security software installed in your laptop. if fails. boot to safe mode with networking then try to download again the file. if fails check if other computer can download it successfully using the same connection, router and modem. just to isolate if a security in your router has been enabled.

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

Dell Vostro 1700 won't startup - woman in need of help!!! :'(


Don't choose safe mode.

If you have in the F8 options, a Recovery Console select that and run at the command prompt:

chkdsk /r

That will look for and repair disk errors.

Otherwise, look for and select Restore my computer, from this F8 menu.

Failing that you will need a copy of Vista or XP but if you have a 64bit OS like Vista64 you will need a copy of that.

Let me know what happens. But, I won't be online for much longer so I'll send a message to a friend of mine in Ireland who can help you further since he's in a different time zone.
