During start up of your system constantly hit either F2 or F12 to enter Bios.
Once in Bios you can configure your boot settings to boot from Your USB device. Bios is pretty self explanatory even for those of us not to familiar with it myself even. Unfortunately mouse is not usanle in Bios. I've had to go to Bios many times on older systems just to boot from cd/dvd Also to correct problems others have made in the boot settings.
Anyway In Bios there is a little summary of each changeable feature within it. Once you make your selection(s) make sure to save changes so you do not have to keep resetting them to your own personal preference. You should be asked upon exiting if you want to save. Your machine should automatically restart and ask you to press any key to but from your device. If you do not hit any key your machine will but normally from harddrive and you will have to restart the system and wait for it to ask again.

SOURCE: Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530

Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530


Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, http://www.amazon.com/Adesso-Adapter-connects-connectors-ADP-PU21/dp/B00008ZPED , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

Wont boot up.which button should i press to reset factory settings on powering up?inspiron 530


Factory settings are normally achieved by pressing the F8 on boot up, and choosing the option for "Repair My Computer". If this doesn't work, then CTRL+F11 should take you directly into the recovery option.

THIS LINK FROM DELL should walk you through the process.

Where can you use a sd card on a dell inspiron 530


The 530 doesn't have a built in port for the card but you could find one at www.surpluscomputers.com that will read multiple types of cards. Have you tried plugging a USB cable from the camera to the computer and downloaded the info that way?

Have a dell Inspiron 530, getting a yellow ower lite and no boot. Fans turn on for a sec then shut right off. what is causing this?


Hello, Ray.

Sounds like a power supply problem - needs to be replaced. But, it's also possible that you have bad memory. So, taking safety precautions (disconnect all cables and touch metal once to dispel static electricity) and if you are comfortable, remove the cover of your tower, remove and reinsert your memory one module at a time and power to test.

If not, replace the power supply.

Hope this helps.
