    Do you have an XP or Vista cd?

    Other than the Dell logo screen, do you see anything else? Any screens with errors from Windows?

Have you tried doing a winXP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Dell Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If the repair does not fix it :

If you have documents you need,you would have to set the hard drive in an enclosure and copy the files over. Then you can run the Dell recovery disk . This will set it up as when it came from Dell.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Low disk space on recovery drive


Usually your recovery drive is a second partition that you don't really have to worry about unless you are using it to store your files.


Just make sure not to delete any files that deal with the recovery of your system. Could be called system recovery or recovery.

I had a similar problem. I fitted a new hard drive loaded windows and on the first re boot i had no OS again.
I went into the bios checked the boot order and also the hard drive booting options. My settings had unticked the hard drive as a bootable drive. When i ticked it and installed the original HD it worked again.
At least i have a spare Hard drive in the draw :)

Memory stick pro not recognized any more by dell inspiron 6400


I suggest going into the control panel/device manager and removing all the usb devices.
Restart the computer and let it find the devices again. That might help.
Also--have you tried the stick in another computer just to make sure it works?
