You need to run your installation/restore CD/DVD that came with the Dell. If you do not have them, you can order them from Dell for a nominal amount.

Dell inspiron 1525 shows black screen after dell logo?


The computer cant find a bootable device. Either your boot sector on your Hard drive is gone/damaged (most likely a virus) or the Hard drive failed. Start with booting with your windows disk and try to do a repair installation.

No boot sector on internal hard drive. No bootable


Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

Dell Inspiron 600 - trying to reload, but not


You might need to go into the computer's BIOS and see if it's set to boot from a bootable CD or USB device. If it's set to only boot from the hard drive, it won't even look at other drives. Different computers use different ways to access the BIOS: you might try pressing the F12 key when the boot logo appears. Check your owner's documentation - it should tell you the procedure for your computer.

Won't turn on


No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.

No boot sector on internal hard drive no bootable device-f2 for setup utility


If the bios or setup utility can't detect your hard drive then this can be a physical problem. I suggest that you reseat or tighten the cable connecting your hard drive to the motherboard. You need to open the hard drive panel then unplug and replug the hard drive cable.
