Erased hard drive, how can install os without the disk?


You would require an installation media to re-install OS, So you can't do it without CD or USB thumb drive with installation file.You can call dell @ 8006249896 and ask them for OS disk, If you wouldn't have received with the computer, they will be sending it to you free of cost and it will only take 2 to 3 business days for you to receive those than you can re-install OS.

I am having issues with my laptop Dell Vostro 1510. Getting a black screen and white cursor in the upper left hand corner.


The error code indicates that the system is not able to access or detect any Hard Disk Drive.
If comfortable you can try the following:
1. Open your laptop following the below guide
2. Look for the Hard Disk Drive
3. Remove it from the system
4. Re-seat the Hard Disk drive
5. Re-start the system

If still the HDD is not detected I am afraid to say that the Drive is gone bad and needs a replacement.

Kindly feel free for any further clarification or assistance.

Hi - my computer automatically shut down while I was online and kept telling me that the hard drive was at capacity.... - it wouldn't even let me control the volume without it saying something was wrong. ...


The hard drive has picked up a virus and corrupted window or the hard drive is defective, if you have the proper recovery disc give it a try, if it works you will have a fresh install of windows and you will know the hard drive is good.

Black screen, blinking cursor in top left hand corner


Could be a number of issues, incl unseated processor or a faulty hard drive. First off I would remove mains & battery, remove covers from underneath and reseat any memory or processors you can find - by reseat I mean just take out and put back.If this fails, I would look to price up a new hard drive before condemning the machine.

try booting from a cd like the reinstall cd for windows that came with the computer. when starting hit F12 to show 1 time boot menu; select cd drive; hit any key when asked to boot from cd. This will tell you if its a software or hard drive problem.
