Question about Dell Latitude C800 Bios Battery (IMP61135) CD-ROM Drive
I have a Dell C800 that I just purchased used. When I turn it on I get a message on the screen... No boot sector on hard disk, Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility.
When I press F1 the same message comes up over and over again.
When I press F2 page 1 of 6 comes up on the Bios page. The only thing that it will let me do is set is the date and time, Nothing else.
I need some help on this one.
It sounds like you bought the computer without an operating system, if you just bought it you need to install an OS (Windows or linux).
You might be able to get recovery discs from Dell if this sytem is entitled to a windows install. Does it have a Windows OEM sticker on the bottom?
In short, You need to install an Operating System.
You can submit a form to request replacement CDs at https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form
You may need to do a ownership transfer with Dell before they will send this there is a form for this as well or you could call customer care http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/change_order/tag_transfer?~ck=ln&c=us&cs=19&l=en&lnki=0&s=dhs
Note forms are all for US customers
