If this happened all of a sudden, 99% of the time it means that your Hard Drive has died. You would need to replace it, and reinstall Windows from your recovery discs.

Depending on what died on the hard drive, if it's the hardware, there is most likely no hope in recovering any data from the drive. If it is just a bad sector or two, a knowledgeable technician should be able to recover most if not all of your data.

Good luck, and I hope you had a back-up of your data!

Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

Dell Latitude D600 with boot-up error message


You operating system is corrupted meaning that your harddrive has failed or you got a bad virus. Only fix is having the operating system reinstalled and mostly likely that data is lost. Sorry to have to break the news to you and hope that you can get this resolved.

BIOS!!!


No boot device available means that there is no Operating System available. F12 is the key that will get you into the Dell BIOS, not F2. Once there change your Boot Order to your HDD first. Good luck!!
