What's the O.S.? How old is the system. How did you get the first O.S. without a boot disk. In other words you may need to reinstall. See if the B.I.O.S. is set to boot from the H.D. or the C.D. Rom. Set it accordingly. There is a site where you can get what's called an Ultimate Boot disk. If you have access to the net from a different computer, then Google for "Ultimate Boot Disk"..,
Happy Hunting and I hope this will help..

    If the hdd is not corrupt and the bios detects it there should be a built in recovery drive.

No operating system how do I insert the missing operating system


You can not inset operating system like CD/DVD inserting! It is special kind of software that runs your computer to make an environment for you to work. First you need a Boot able Operating system cd/dvd.
This laptop normally comes with Microsoft Windows xp Media Center Edition. You may choose professional.
Now insert this disk into your laptop, boot form cd/ dvd, and start installing...After finishing installation properly , you can remove disk from your laptop and your operating system will be inside of your laptop.
If you are new you can not do this things along, Try to read manual of your laptop to select boot device to boot from cd/dvd and learn how to setup windows or other operating system you want. Let me know updates.

I cant fix my mini laptop it is tell me to select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key I have try this and it don't work


Verify BIOS settings and see if the harddrive is listed. If it's not then the harddrive maybe bad. Or, insert the set-up disk in the CD driver to see if it will boot that.

I want to reformay my Dell Latitude D505 laptop. I have the reinstall disc with system software, device drivers, diagnostics and utilities as well as the windows XP Disc. Is this all I need ?


HI there,

It looks like you're good to go except you should, during rebuilding your system, go to the Dell Support Drivers & Downloads site (which they recommend), enter the service tag# for your laptop, and download and install most of your drivers from there as they will be the most recent.

Since you're using XP, you'll want to start with the XP disc and reformat and install XP first, then use your Dell Dsic that has drivers on it to install the LAN and WLAN (wired and wireless internet connection) drivers to get on the net and go to the Dell site.

I usually make a folder on the desktop and name it Drivers, then while at the Dell site dowload each driver, BIOS update, application, etc. to that folder so I can work directly from the driver files without constantly reconnecting to the Dell site every time I have to restart after a driver install that requires it.

Good Luck

My laptop hangs on inserting any pen drive if it is inserted after booting; but if it is inserted before booting my laptop it works properly n without any problem.....


when you insert any pen drive generally it searches for the drivers and do some checking to see if it has to install drivers for the new hardware and it takes time...
