Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I try to start my laptop up, but I get a BLEEP and it says "Reboot and select proper booting device" I tried putting in a disc with a driver update but it didn't work. What can I do without having to clear my laptop/get a new driver? I use a 32 Bit Dell Inspiron M5030 w/ Windows 7 Obsidian edition.
Your computer BIOS (think of it as the basic setup configuration for this purpose) may be set to look for an external drive before going to the built in hard drive for start up. Make sure there is no disc in the cd/dvd drive or any external hard drives, memory cards, or USB sticks plugged into a USB port. If it will not start after this, there's a chance your computer is having issues reading the built in hard drive. You can enter the BIOS setup if you watch the screen during start up if you want to check this setting. Usually there will be something like "Press Delete" or "Press FXX key" to enter BIOS mode. Just be careful not to change anything without knowing what it is.

Testimonial: "Tried both. Still not working."
Press the Delete key during start up, to enter its bios settings window. At boot sequence selection, select CD ROM as first boot device, Hard disc to second boot device, and deselect all other boot devices. Means, there should be only CD ROM and Hard disc as boot devices, as said above, in sequence. Select 'Save and reboot' at the bios option, the computer will restart with hard disc; provided there is no CD at CD ROM. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

SOURCE: Recovery disk needed
on reboot, enter BIOS setup, F1 Esc, whatever the prompts say
and change the boot sequence to a valid drive.
This may not work since you did not say what occurred to __kup the boot sequence

Try inserting your Windows CDROM at startup and look for press any key to boot from cd.
Wait 'til " Welcome to Setup" occurs and press R for repair.
Type Administrator password or just click enter after choosing
(most likely) 1. At windows prompt, type fixboot and after self
repair type exit.
The system is likely encountering a critical error and
theautomatically restart option has been selected in
the startup andrecovery options.
Right click on My Computer and select
Properties/Advanced Tab/Startup and
Under System Failure, uncheck the Automatically Restart
option. Thiswill allow the error to be displayed when
the problem is encountered.
You need to perform some troubleshooting steps to
try and locate exactly where the problem is coming
Good Luck...Nate P.
