You need to set your system to boot from CD. When you got DELL logo, press F12 for boot options, and select CD ROM.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer is located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

do not worry at all. take out the cd and reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 at bootup. Then you can restore your laptop to an earlier date from Start->All progs->Accessories->System->restore. reboot normal this time.

ZV5000 laptop wont boot up

Hi, You will need to boot from a boot disc or your Windows operating CD and from there you will be able to format the hard drive and reload windows.
If your hard disc has corrupted then placing the windows cd in the drive it should boot directly from there as there is no other operating system available.

Let us know how you go,
