Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
I have an Inspiron 6000 that has served me well for the past 4 years. For some reason, for some time now, when booting up it doesn't show the bios info or allow me to go to setup. I am having an impossible time getting it to boot from a cd. I believe it is still set to boot first from the cd in the setup because I had it there and never changed it.
Does anyone know how I might get this thing to allow me to reinstall the original windows setup, or any other later setup for that matter.
In the past two years, before I was denied access to the setup screen, I upgraded to Vista and ran this machine successfully for a year.
As this is a standby machine, I now want to install a different/beta OS but can't access the setup screen.
Thanks for any ideas you might have.
Try hitting F12 as soon as the computer starts to turn on. This should give you a Boot Selection Menu where you can choose which device to boot from.
To get into the bios, this machine requires you to hit F2 just as it starts to boot.
You do not need to rapidly press it, but do try several times until you get your menu.

You could reset the bios or remove and passwords you may have ,program called spotmau will do this.
try to install xp ..if something happens though cant install it will be vista preventing it ..then if thats the case you need to fdisk drive ..
theres many ways to do this...
