AH yes, Kristen very familiar with your issue, it is trying to load the primary boot record from a device it dosen't see , ( re: a floppy thats not there) you need to check the BIOS and make sure the booting sequence is correct (re:disable floopy if one dose not exist, etc) please write back if you need help doing all of these things

Recovery cd for dell dimension 3000


If you mean that you NEED ONE and don't have one and can't make one, then look for one ONLINE, by typing exactly what you wrote into GOOGLE:
recovery cd for dell dimension 3000
Actually, it would be your DOS, whether WIN XP, VISTA or WIN 7 that you want. Look for those, whichever operating system you're using, and someone will have the solution, without having to pay.

How do I restore my Dell Dimension C521? I am


You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.

If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.

If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).

How do I delete everything that is on my dell dimension 3000 and reinstall the original software that came with the computer?


First, you need to find the original installation disks that came with your computer. There's a Dell System Recovery disk that will wipe your computer and reinstall everything as if it had just come from the factory. Insert the Recovery CD, restart your computer, and press F11 or F12 to access the boot menu. When you get the boot menu, select the CD/DVD ROM drive as your boot device. This will lead you through the re-install process.

I tried to restore my Dell Dimension 3000 computer with disks and now it works worse than before for. I tried to do the Repair (letter R) and now it is asking all of these questions that I know nothing...


get a computer that is not dell, dell will over charge you for repairs and alot of the parts are not interchangeable so they are hard and costly to repair, if i where you id find a Compaq or Hp anything but dell rilly, then just take the hard drive from the dell and put it as slave in to the new machine, then you have a new computer with all your old documents that is reliable and easy to fix
