    conserve_1333, I thank you for your post. Pulling the DVD drive out of this laptop has enabled my Inspiron 2200 to boot again. Now I will need to decide if it is the DVD ROM or Motherboard that is the issue.

My Laptop Inspiron 2200 With Windows XP only boot with the C drive when I remove the CD-DVD-CD drive. Otherwise ,I am asked to go to Bios to reconfigure the booting order.
The CD-dvd can not be pick-up by Plug and Play .

As a result I can only use the Laptop without the CD-DVD

When I reconnect the DVD it will not boot.

I have inspected every single pin in the DVD and from the Motherboard I can not see any damages

What do you think is the problem?

Most likely a HDD failure. Take the HDD out, see if you can boot to a XP CD or resource CD. If you can, then replace the HDD

Hello mi problem is wen i turn on mi lapton dell ispiron 2200 apear no bootable devices strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for set up utility, wath i can do? windows xp


Your hard drive's Master Boot Record might be the problem. If it was corrupted then the bios will not see a bootable hard drive.

Three things you have to do in order to solve this.

1. purchase a 2.5" external enclosure, remove the hard drive and put it in there.
2. purchase another 2.5" hard drive for the laptop and reinstall Windows.
3. once the reinstall is done, plug the enclosure into the laptop by the usb cable and copy your data to the new hard drive.

Hi ajmedina89,

If your system wont boot up and has a no "bootable devices" message, is often caused by a defective harddrive. I recommend to try a different HDD before replacing your system HDD to isolate the issue.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My dell inspiron will not boot it says no bootable device found


Hi, try pressing the ESC key during bootup, this will allow you to boot in safe mode, from where you can reset your operating system to a time before the problem started.
If this dosn't help come back to me for help on re installing operating system.

Won't turn on


No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.

My dell inspiron b130. says no bootable devices and strike f1 to retry boot. f2 for setup utility. but nothing happens just repeats sentence over and over


It may be that your hard disk is shot - or its connectors may have come loose or slightly corroded. Remove the hard disk and then reseat it back again. Good luck.
