No boot device available dell optiplex 170l series

Go to the bios to verify that the computer is recognizing the hard drive and that the hard drive is is listed in the boot sequence. If this is all good your hard drive may have been formatted or erased or the boot record is corrupt and unreadable to the bios. I had a similar problem. reloaded windows and all was good.

How to disable password on Dell Optiplex D170L

Click the "Start" button and then click "Run." Type "Perfmon.msc" (without quotes) and then press "Enter." This opens the Performance window of the System Monitor tool.

Click any of the counters in the right pane that you want to disable.

Click "Delete." This will remove the counter from the System Monitor on your Dell OptiPlex 170L and stop the self-monitoring of that service.

hope this helps

This is not a good sign. Your computer is not posting, this may mean that your BIOS has been currupted.

Your computer will need to be repaired by a computer technician, either the BIOS will need to be recovered, a freash chip installed or a new mainboard installed.

Take care!
