Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
The screen reads operating system not found
If your dell comes with a recovery disk set stick the disk in the drive and go through the steps. If it doesn't go to the store and grab a copy of Windows, or if your like me screw windows get a copy of linux ubuntu or opensuse 11 for free and install it on the system. The problem is file have either been deleted or corrupted in the operating system and it can no longer be booted. BUT BUT BUT try this before anything above.
Grab a windows cd or if you got vista, grab a vista dvd and go into the recover console after booting into it and click repair. Most likly your bootloader has been wiped clean. So you need to re install the bootloader. Google "windows vista reinstall bootloader".

Ya sounds like the hard drive has died or there is a interface problem since you suffered from water damage. you may be able to get data off the hard drive by using a external hard drive connector but it may or may not work.
