Question about Dell White Slimed Inspiron Mini Nickelodeon Edition Netbook PCwith Intel Atom Processor Windows XP
I bought this second hand and there is no sound. the guy told me he restored it to factory settings, but something is wrong. i looked to adjust the volume but it is all shaded out, and you can't click on it. because we havent' used it yet, i want to do another factory setting reboot, but when i use the control f11 duo, nothing happens. i have all the disks and an external drive, should i restore it that way?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Put recovery disk in the CD drive. On reboot, hold down F12 key. You should get a choice of drives to boot from. Make sure the first two are in the correct order:
1. CD-ROM (optical drive)
2. HDD (hard drive)
then press F10 to save and exit.
Now the laptop should boot correctly from the recovery disk.

Boot to the Diagnistics FN+POWER at boot, run hard drive diagnostics. The PBR Descriptor 2 message is part of the normal boot process (directing the boot loader to Primary Boot Recond 2, the C: Drive) but usually flashes on an off so fast most people never notice it. Since the boot process is not going past the re-direct it is indicative of a bad hdd (Since the re-image process crashed)
Most likely you are looking at a hard drive replacement.
Regardless you are going to need an XP CD (you'll have to reinstall windows or run recovery console at a minimum)

You can restore your Dell Mini using Using Dell PC Restore in Windows XP or Dell Factory Image. You can successfully restore your computer yourself. All you need is to download a manual containing instruction on how to restore. Download the manual from http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1010/en/index.htm
See pages from 37 - 43. You can restore your computer on your choice.

Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.
Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".
Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.
Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.
Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option
Select the appropriate language and click "Next".
Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.
Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".
Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".
Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.
