Check the laptop is booting by connecting it to an external monitor and see if the lock appears there you may need to press Fn and F7 keys to switch display

If it does not, then try pressing Fn and scroll lock

D600 pc reads no bootable devices--srike F1 to retry boot


You will need to go to CMOS usually F1 or F2, or Delete on Boot-up to enter Setup - find the start-up or Boot Sequence order and set to CD.
Place OS (XP or ??) in CD and reboot, tapping the F12 to give you the start-up boot sequence menu.  Select Boot from CD, and try recovering your operating system - if not recoverable you must install a fresh OS but would recommend making a new or 2nd Windows OS so you don't remove all hardware drivers including motherboard and ethernet and then tell the 2nd OS to find the drivers within the first OS directory when installing fresh OS - Operating System.
Everyone should have a back-up of all their drivers and a copy of their operating system or a recovery disk but this is hind-site.
Good luck.

step 3 - After pressing F12 key,it will show you some options to select from where you want to boot from.
step 4 - Select 'Boot from CD drive/USB cd drive'
step 5 - Now it will try to boot from your bootable windows xp cd which you have inserted in th CD drive.
step 6 - After reading the CD it will prompt you to 'Press any key to boot from CD drive'
step 7 - At this moment press any key.Remeber you will have to press any key while this prompt appears.otherwise it will boot from your Hard disk drive.

Kenmore makes whining noise as it tries to spin


The drive coupling has probably broken. Usually happens when you overload the machine. Easy fix. READ MORE

Inspiron 1150 is making a clicking sound and won't boot


Replace the Hard Drive. My bet is that the Hard Drive is broken (causing the clicking) Please note that if you replace your hard drive you will need the recovery Cd's or a copy of windows xp or vista.

Computer won't boot up


you must hold down the F10 key( for system recovery) when you turn on computer. hold down as computer starts up,hopefully it will then repair itself and boot up. If not,start up computer holding down F12 for advanced diagnostics and run some test!! Good luck
