Dell inspiron computer 531s not working

My computer is not working it is giving me a black screen with options to choose from I have tried 3 different options and the computer still does ot work. When I choose an option it takes me to a blue screen that instructs me to restart computer and choose f8 key and then choose safety mode well when i hit f8 nothing happens. I have tried to reinstall the cd that came with the computer but it is not working. Maybe I'm using the wrong cd someone please help me. I have only had the computer for 1 year.

You may want to do a system recovery. Dell computers allow you to do recovery by pressing "Ctrl and F11" upon boot up.

Black screen with blinking cursor upon start up


You don't say what Windows are you using.
Anyways, it seems like you have a corrupted BOOT problem.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can insert your Windows installation CD, and choose the "Repair my pc" option.
Windows will do it automatically fro you, and you'll be up and running in a couple of minutes.

Can't factory restore dell inspiron 531 (windows xp).


You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.

Dell Inspiron 531S "windows failed to start"


Well the recovery disk are not bootable if you changed the routeing order okay this would be a little invasive take the hard drive out of the computer and reformat it in another computer if another computer is not the option then your going to need to take it in to a computer repair shop there is nothing we can do online that you can do there because we cannot communicate to you outside of fixya.com realm I cannot even send you anything without getting in trouble. I hope this helps.
