Hi there.
First off go into the bios and check to make sure the DVD/CD drive is recognized, if it is look for the boot order and set the first boot device to the DVD/CD drive, hit F8 to save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will restart and hopefully now it will boot from the CD and you will be able to proceed to install the operating system.
Please post back with the results.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Enter the bios and change the boot order to CD first HD second. With your operating system CD in the reboot your computer and watch the screen press any key to boot from CD. Do so.

Do you have any other cds? might be the wrong cd. or the cd might not be startable / bootable.

try another disc and check that the computer is set to start from the cd drive.

Restart you computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the F2 or the Delete key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the navigate to advanced bios features using the arrows keys press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your failsafe or optimized defaults otherwise it might keep booting from the cd
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

How do i clean my computer up with the recovery disc?

The procedure is to insert the disk ..and restart and boot from CD ..If the boot order is already set to boot from CD first will prompt you to press any key to start ..or will need to press F11 or f12 to choose from the menu ..either the recovery will start when you choose f11..or if you choose F12 you have to select the boot from disk drive ..and hit enter ..Confirm by pressing any key and will start the complete reinstalling of the operation system ..and if it asks the C drive and format it if it asks ..
If the recovery disk you have does not contain the operation system but just the recovery for the need to install the operation system first from a bot-able disk with the operation system on it ..and the procedure is the same ..Insert disk F12 on start to get to the boot menu .select cd /dvd drive ..and hit enter..when asked a key to confirm the action ..and go with the installation progress and follow instructions ..
The steps in both cases will be the loading of the primary files ..after that the agreement with microsoft ..and will show previous OS ..choose not to repair but new installation ..and select a partition ..(same on C drive ) ..and will ask if you want to keep files or replace ..I suggest not to keep anything and erase the drive and format it in NTFS quick ..and go on..It will load the files..for windows..and restart and this time you do not need to press a key ..but let it continue and finish the job ..
Those steps are for installing from os disks..and some of them will not be present in installing from recovery ..With the recovery disk things will go on automatically ..
Let me know if you have questions ..have a nice day !

When I try to boot up my Dell Latitude /D500 laptop.. I get the following blue Screen error message: The error message says: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent...

That error is usually caused by corruption in the Operating System files. You don't mention what version of windows you are running so will try to walk you through options with XP, Vista and 7. Vista and Windows 7 are the same steps to hopefully resolve this issue.

Windows XP:
You may need your Installation Disc for these procedures. First however, try doing this:
Turn the machine on and start tapping F8, and keep tapping. You should come to a black screen with several options on it. The top 2 options will be Safe Mode and Safe Mode With Networking. Select one of those, it doesn't matter which. When you highlight the option using your Up or Down arrow hit enter.
It will take you to the list of Operating Systems Should just be the primary system choice. Look and see if it also lists the Recovery Console. If it does arrow down to it and hit enter. If it does not then you will need the Dell Installation Disc for your operating system handy. Put it in the CD drive and during boot up hit F12 to get the boot menu or whatever option it shows for it on your screen. Select CD and hit enter. It will load several files and come to the first setup screen hit the R for Recovery Console. Once in the console you will need to select the windows installation option by entering the number of the choice. Hit enter.
If it asks for the administrator's password, just hit enter, by default it is blank.
You should see a command prompt with a blinking cursor like: C:\> and the cursor blinking next to it. Type in this command: chkdsk /R and hit enter it should start showing it scanning your drive for errors. Let it run all the way through and watch the results as it will tell you it has found one or more corrupted files and repaired them. At that point you will have a blinking cursor again waiting a command. Just type in the word EXIT and hit enter. it will reboot. should go on into windows.

For Vista and windows 7, turn the machine on and tap F8, and when you get to the boot options screen it should default to Repair Computer. Hit enter and follow the screen instructions.
If you do not have the Repair Computer option on that screen, then you will need the Installation Disc for this as well. Put it in the cd drive and select the Boot Menu option. When it gets to the Installation screen using the CD you will see an option to Repair Computer. Select it and follow the screen prompts.

You will get to a Advanced System Repair screen. When you see it click on Command Prompt.

When you get the black command window type in: chkdsk /R and hit enter. It will warn you that you cannot do this on a locked drive. It will ask you if you want to dismount the drive by choosing Y for yes or N for no. Type Y and hit enter. It will take over from there and scan for and repair any corrupted files it finds. When it is done type in: EXIT and hit enter and then click on Restart Computer.

That should fix you up.

Keyboard doesnt type certain keys e.g. when pressing 'e' i will get My Computer pop up?

This can be solved by reset:---
  1. Place the first CD, labeled CD 1, into the CD drive of your computer.
  2. Press the power button to turn on your computer.
  3. Hit the ESC key on your keyboard when you see the prompt at the bottom of your screen. (This will appear before your operating system begins to boot.)
  4. Hit the down arrow key on your keyboard to select “CD ROM.” This will allow you to boot from the CD that contains the factory settings for your computer.
  5. Hit "Enter."
  6. Follow the prompts by clicking "OK." Your computer will inform you that taking this action will erase all saved data on your computer. Click "OK."
  7. Insert the next CD-ROM into your computer when prompted. Continue to do this until your computer asks you to reboot.
  8. Hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer. Follow the prompts provided by your operating-system setup program. At this point, you will be able to name your computer, register and set up your desktop.
This will solve the problem. Thank you Sir, have a nice day.
