Did you press F12 while booting? That should take you to the boot options menu. Choose CD Rom.

Laptop wil not start. Dell Inspiron 8600


Insert a Windows XP CD into your CD/DVD drive.
Restart your computer.
It should now be booting off your Windows XP disc.
If it doesn't boot off the CD. Follow the steps below:
Change boot order in BIOS
  • When your computer is starting up tap the Del key and until you enter the Bios, when in Bios click on Boot order and change it to :
    • CD/DVD
    • Hard Drive (HDD)
    • Floppy
  • Then save and exit Bios (Your computer should now be restarting)

While it is booting off the disk you should get a prompt to Press R to enter recovery Console, Press R.

Press 1 to log onto Windows then press Enter. You will need the administrative password to get into to command prompt. If the administrator password was blank press enter.

Type into the command prompt : chkdsk /r and press Enter. When the Disc Check is complete type in Exit and press enter. Remove the Windows XP CD.

Windows should start up normally now.

Blue screen of death


Hi there
"Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system.
If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD.
This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS.
Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.

Good luck

How to install windows


You need the windows CD to install windows, insert the cd in drive and press enter when asked to press anykey to start from cd.
if you don't get the start from cd and the windows setup doesn't start then most likely your computer is not set to startup from a cd drive, look in the cornerts of your computer screen look for boot menu or press this to enter setup / bios

you can either use the setup / bios or the boot menu and boot from the cd.

if you use the boot menu, make sure the cd is in the drive and select the drive from the list

if you don't find boot menu or it doens't work go into the bios / setup and you will need to change the boot order to include the CD drive FIRST before hdd or floppy. consult your motherboard manual or ask me if you need help in the bios.
