Hi! you are actually having a no boot problem with your computer. it means your computer cant locate a bootable device( your harddrive) where the operating system is installed.you need to reseat the haerd drive cable that is connected to your motherboard and hard drive(do this if you know how if not ask somebody else to do this for you) this should fix your problem else you need to use an operating system disc(windows os / XP/Vista/windows 7) to boot from and to reinstall your operating system to your computer. warning: doing this will going to delete everything of what you have inside your harddrive.

Can't factory restore dell inspiron 531 (windows xp).


You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.

Dimension 3100 Won't Boot


Make sure your HD Cables are all firmly plugged in, and that all drives are starting when you turn on the computer. You can tell with harddrives as they will slightly whine, and have a small, steady vibration to them. If they are all starting, and all cables are fully seated, check in your Setup utility that the drives themselves are Auto-Detect. If none of this fixes your issue, you may have to refer your computer to a computer repair shop.

Hope this helps!
