Hi!

Have you ever tried reinstalling windows xp before? if not then revert back to me. I'll teach you how to check if the system still has PC restore. If you ever have tried reinstalling windows or your hdd has been replaced, then you may need to reinstall windows manually by using the discs.

Hope this helps.

2005 Dell Inspiron 6000, I need to reload the operating software, my hard drive crashed and I have a new hard drive I am going to install. How do I go about loading in the software??


If you have your windows disc, go into your bios. Make sure your disc drive is the FIRST BOOT DEVICE. Then restart your pc and it should load from the cd.

Well the old Dell takes ATA connections. Newer laptops are SATA. Which did you buy?
A new disk drive needs to be partitioned and the operating system needs loaded. Did you do that?
Did you back up all your data to an external device so you can load it on the new disk?

How do I reinstall the operating system on a dell inspiron 6000?


Using Dell PC Restore by Symantec
NOTE: Dell PC Restore is available only on computers purchased in certain regions.
Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system. PC Restore
restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or
files added since you received your computer—including data files—are permanently deleted from the hard
drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on.
If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
NOTICE: Using PC Restore permanently deletes all data on the hard drive and removes any applications or drivers
installed after you received your computer. If possible, back up the data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
1 Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
2 Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish restarting, and then restart the
computer again.
NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.
3 On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
4 On the next screen, click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
5 When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.
NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.

You could image or ghost the old drive, but you need to have access to it from another system with storage to save the information as there no way to have both drives installed in this model. I believe the easiest and preferred method would be to perform a clean install. You can use a borrowed OS CD provided you have your own product key. You could then get an external USB enclosure to connect your old drive to retrieve data.

If you purchased your I6000 after 2005, then it still has the PC Restore option. For Dell system with Windows XP, your can restore your computer to factory settings by pressing CTRL+F11 when you see the page after the big DELL Logo. It's a BLACK SCREEN with a blue bar at the top and it has www.dell.com written in white. Usually this screen will show up in between the DELL Logo and Windows Logo.
