You need to get an external dvd drive, then either the recovery disk that came with your computer (you may have had to make it), or you need a copy of Windows that is the same version as the one installed on your computer from the factory (look at the Certificate of Authenticity on the bottom of laptop or under the battery). Turn on the computer, then tap the F11 key until you get the "boot menu". Insert your disk into the DVD drive, and select USB DVD drive from the boot menu... follow the installation instructions from there.

Testimonial: "Thanks - I do not have an external dvd drive but can pick one up. The "pins" on the new SATA hard drive do not seem to correspond to the pins in the netbook. Is this a problem?"

Hard drive installation on Dell Dimension E310


Assuming that you replaced the original hard Drive for a new one.
All drives come clean out of manufacturing so you need to install the Operating System before you can get the computer up in running. Just find the Disk set the computer to boot to CD using the F12 Key then follow the instructions.

I want to reboot and put a new version of windows


The first step you'll need to take is to backup all of your data to a second hard drive or thumb drive. After that it is normally best to get the drivers for the new software for your current machine prior to installing a new OS. Video, chipset, and network drivers will be your main priority. After you have done all this you will need to reboot your machine with the new install disk in the CD tray. From there you will need to hit F12 repeatedly, this should pop up a boot menu which will allow you to choose to boot from your Install disk. After you choose to boot from the CD you will need to hit any key on the keyboard once the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD:" pops up. This will take you to the windows installer and allow you to continue with the installation. Once the disk loads all of the utilities needed you will need to reformat the hard drive by deleting the current partitions. Once this is done simply choose the hard drive to install the OS on and follow the prompts.

I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Restore will not work comp goes thru the motions and comes back with unable to restore, it doesn't matter how far back you go


Hi, I believe you need to reinstall your operating system, follow these instruction:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

Cannot get drive to recognize in my computer- red light followed by flashing blue light


Is this a new hard drive, if so did you initialize it with the included software? new drives need to initialized when first powered up. Install the laptop and boot the computer using the included software, the disc will initialize and then you can reboot using your windows or restore disc to finish.
