Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop
I recently obtained a Dell Dimension 4700 Desktop from my parents company and decided to zero write the hard drive to get rid of all the business stuff (I do this with my laptop all the time). When I inserted the Windows XP disk to reinstall it, the computer fails to boot from either CD/DVD drive and says they can't be found. I have played with the BIOS with no such luck and have even tried two other XP discs. Any suggestions or advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated!!!
I have big problem with my Dell Dimension 4700 Series PC. I completely formated and reinstalled XP Window on C (maximum MB) and D. I followed all steps for installation...
1. I insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive
2. I pressed <Enter> to set up Windows XP.
3. I pressed <F8> to accept the terms and conditions specified in the license agreement.
4. I Highlighted the largest partition C only and press <Enter> using the NTFS file system (Quick).
5. After the computer restarts, Setup continues with a graphical user interface (GUI) in the classic Windows theme.
6. Finally it says Installation finished and welcomed.
Here is the problem after installation
1. I tried to OPEN 'D' partition hard disk but it says it is not formated.
2. No Networking Settings screen appears during installation. I couldnt able to connect to internet with router.
Please help me what to do.
Thanks for your time and cooperation.

It looks as though when deleting the OS you might have gotten jacked and the rom drivers were lost.
