If your Dell has a blue stripe on the top when turning it on.. You can restore PC by holding down the Alt Key and Pressing F11... Should work unless it is an older model and/or the hard drive has been replaced.

Yes you can make a bootable pen drive using some other pc which is having both usb and cd writer working. Simply copy the complete files of your os file to that pen drive or external hdd and change the bios settings such that the first boot option shall be usb device and search other bootable device should be enabled.

Dell latitude D610


This fault usually means the hard disk has failed or the disk controller, in most cases it is the hard disk that has failed.
Check the BIOS settings and see if the hard disk is detected, if not it is probably a faulty hard disk.
When you boot up the computer does the hard disk LED light flash and can you hear the hard disk spin up. If the hard disk is making a clicking noise then it is definitely faulty.
To test the hard disk another way, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this as an external hard drive and you can't open the folders and files, this confirms it as faulty.
To get the computer operational again, you need a new hard drive, Install Windows on the new hard drive with the computer's device drivers and your programs.

No boot sector on hard disk - No bootable devices - strike F1 to


AFAIK all XP disks were bootable so maybe check your bios options.
If they are correct and it still does not boot them goto bootdisk.com and download the floppy setup disks for XP. You could then set your laptop to boot from floppy and install xp from there.

Reformated C: drive and cannot reload Dell drivers for display & audio


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} After installing Windows, use the CD that is provided with your Dell PC. The CD may not be bootable, but it will contain all the driver's and other applications on it for you to install. you need to first have your pc working with the windows OS. Then load the CD and follow the menus to install each driver, for each device in for your particular model Dell PC.

If you don't have the CD, then you can go to the Dell website where you can download each driver and other apps for your PC to get it to working condition.

Bootable decices?


Friend if it says no bootable devices it means that it cannot detect the hard disk or optical disk such as dvd/cd rom. The problem is the connection. check the IDE/SATA cable from hard disk or optical disk to the mainboard.I'm sure that is only the problem unless the mention disks are present in the unit. Just mount properly the connections

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.
