Re: Vertical Fold over or rolling on Dell Inspiron 1000
Get a new hard drive put into the system, with the cd's that came with the system, restore the laptop back to factory defaults and then after that the F12 function should work and windows will go back to working as well.

In inspiron 2200 shut down the system then restart and when you see the Dell logo tap F2 key. You will goto BIOS. In BIOS go under SYSTEM and then goto BOOT SEQUENCE. Then make sure that USB STORAGE device is at 1. position. You can modifiy this by highlighting the first option and press enter and then use + or - keys to change or look at the very bottom of screen to see how to change the value. Once USB storage device is in first position of boot sequence then on the left hand side of main menu goto POST BEHAVIOUR and expand it. Then goto US emulation and make sure it is enabled (ON) if not then make it on. Then save and exit the BIOS .Now make sure your USB device is connected Then restart the system andsoon as you see the Dell logo tap F12 . Now choose USB from the boot sequence and it will boot form USB device (If that USB device has bootable files)
If your PC doesn't boot up using the hard drive, you can check that by looking for the F2 or F12 displayed on the screen during boot up. Then start pressing F2 or F12 quickly to get setup.
In setup follow the directions and set your "boot device" to "hard drive"
Hope this is what you needed.
Sounds like either your hard drive is bad or you need to go into your setup by pressing f12 when your screen shows dell when starting up and check your boot order, make sure your hard drive is listed in the boot order, if not your hard drive is fried.. if so , make sure your 1st boot is your hard drive. Also make sure you don't have anything in your cdrom drive or a flash drive in your usb port.
Hope it's just your boot order and not your hard drive!
The computer is indicating to you that it is unable to detect the presence of the hard drive. You might try booting the computer from the system CD/DVD to repair or restore the drive. (that's what the F12 menu is about) If unable to restore the system, you may need to replace the hard drive. Any chance that you still have a warranty?
Welcome to FixYa! Delete is the BIOS setup key at POST. F12 is a one-time boot option. Safe mode is accessed by repeatedly pressing the F8 key at the first Windows splash screen. Post again if you have further questions. Steve
