SOURCE: dell xps 600 windows booting problem

You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows

SOURCE: my dell optiplex gx200 bios can't boot

maybe try taking out the cmos battery located in your case, looks like a small watch battery, that will clear bios settings and start from scratch, if there is no battery then there is a jumper sequence to do this

SOURCE: my dell desktop doesn't start or boot from cd rom

Basically you need to go to Bios to change your "Boot device pripority". Please follow these steps to do this.

Please follow these steps to install XP on your PC.

1. Please start your PC with power button. At the very first screen, at the left down corner, you will see the button to be pressed to go to Setup i.e. Bios of the PC. For most of the PCs , it is delete button. For some of them, it is F2 also. So, after starting the PC press Del to go into setup.

2. After you enter setup of the PC, please go to Advance bios setup.

3. There you select Boot device priority.

4. here the first boot device priority should be CD ROM, then the HDD. Please see the instructions given at right down corner and select this priority.

5. After you rightly selected boot device priority as given above, Press F10 to save the changes and then press F12 to exit.

6. Now the PC will restart again, but be sure that you put win XP cd in the drive before it restarts.

7. Now you will see a note that : press any key to boot from CD ROM, so please press any key.

8. The PC will boot from the CD ROM now , now you can follow the instructions given on the screen.

When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

This computer use to have windowsxp it was upgrade to windows vista but do not have a product key can i install the windowxp the key no#for windows xp is in the back of the computer or how to buy a key no.


You have to enter a new Vista product id to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista. The Windows XP product id will not work for Windows Vista. If you bought the Vista from an authorized retailer of Microsoft products then the serial number would be on the back of the software pack.
If you want to you can buy an activation code from Microsoft. Having an activation code means you don't need a product id and that your right to use the software is recognized by Microsoft.
I am not sure if you also have a problem with Microsoft Office because your question says "problem with Microsoft Office Professional 2007...". If you do then the same thing applies. an activation code is even stronger than a product id for both Windows and Office because a product id only gives you permission to install and use the software offline for a short time and it still needs to be activated by Microsoft before you can use it fully or longer. An activation code allows you to use the software without any limitations online or offline and also to get updates and upgrades for them from Microsoft.
If you cannot afford genuine Office software or a Microsoft Office activation code then you can download free software called Open Office which is almost as good as Microsoft Office and can even be used to open and edit Microsoft Office documents.
It is always better to have the genuine activated version.

Here are the sites you need:
www.microsoft.com
www.openoffice.org

My operation system expire


Sounds like you need to activate your Windows operating system by entering your Windows Vista product key and activating online or by calling Microsoft's activation hotline. Once the genuine Microsoft operating system is activated, it will never expire.

I hav windows vista operating system in my laptop. windows activation will expire with in 3 days so i need a new key for full verion


You can get a full version key from Microsoft online store or any Microsoft Authorised dealer near you. However I will advise you move up to windows 7 you will love it. It is lighter than windows Vista and more enhanced features than windows XP. Moreso, Support for windows Vista is at the end of life.

Windows Vista Bootup problems


Did you (sorry for the underline....not sure how it got here) call Microsoft to have them give you another product key? This is the new procedure now. If you do a reinstall with your Windows Operating System, you have to call in to receive a new product key. This should fix it.

Good luck!
