Question about Dell Latitude C800 Bios Battery (IMP61135) CD-ROM Drive
Firstly , verify that you hdd is working correctly. To do this , power up your computer and enter the bios by pressing delete , F12 or another key that should be displayed on the first screen when booting up.
Depending on your bios , you should get a screen that looks like this :
Enter the standard cmos setup or equivalent and you should see your hdd listed here. If it is not listed here , there is probably a problem with the hdd. If you have experience in this , open the case and check you power and data cables both at the hdd and the motherboard. Do remember to disconnect the power before doing so.
If your hdd is detected and displayed normally , this is not the problem. Go back to the main BIOS page and do a factory/failsafe bios reset. Try reinstalling XP. If the crash screen still comes up and you have a camera , please take a picture of this and report back to me what is displayed in the crash.
The next step will involve removing the part that is crashing the system. Some of the most common parts are faulty RAM and PCI Modems , but more information should be displayed during a crash to be able to determine the responsible part.
Another typical problem is a defective installation disc. Please get back to me with the steps provided and I will guide you further if needed.

Since you have the XP install disc, you can do a repair of the boot sector. You need to enter the Recovery Console.
To run the Recovery Console from CD boot with the Windows XP CD and select "R" at the Welcome Screen
A black screen will come out and then choose your Windows installation. If password is set, type it. If not, leave it blank.
Under C:\Windows, type fixboot. Wait for the utility to do its work and then after it is done, restart the computer.
