That means your hard drive has crashed and you will have to replace the drive. And, since you don't have the cd, you will have to get an operating system to go onto it once you replace it.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

Hard Drive Read Failure


No--I would say that the hard drive has gone bad on you.
The BIOS can see a hard drive, but it can't tell if it's any good.
If it's defective, well--you see what happens!

DEll Latitude c610 laptop computer


put in the windows 2000 or xp disk
98 is not supported by microsoft , youll have many problems online
but you need to format the hard drive , 20 gb is good
with the windows xp cd boot from it
you will see just one letter drive if more delete them and format just one drive, you can use the quick format , so the windows xp files will go on after that, but youll have 30 day trial

the BIOS is hard wired into the motherboard and contains all information about the hardware on M/board.usually accessed by pressing del key or f2 key you will have how to do this at the bottom of the boot up screen read all info carefully it should list what your hard drive is and how big
also if hard drive is automatically detected
if you access it set it for default loadings and try again to boot

USB Port Malfunction


There is no power option in XP to shut off a USB port to preserve power so dont worry about that. I would try to use a different USB device such as a USB Flash Drive or printer etc. to test. If the flash drive for instance does not say it is disconnected after 2 minutes, then you know that the problem is with the wireless card. If it does the same thing as the wireless card, then you know that its not the card. I would say it would most likely be a motherboard at that point which becomes a rather expensive problem. Hopefully this helps!

Clean XP Pro installed -- now NIC disappeared!


Well once you did a clean install over all of Dell drivers etc etc. You wiped out the restore artion that was on the computer. You have to go to Dells website and under the support tab look for the Nic card that you have inside the computer.
