Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

Hangs up on boot

Have a Dell Inspiron 1000 that will not start up. The old Hard Drive died so I bought a new 120G. Installed it today but will not get past "CLIENT MAC ADDR:00 0F1F B7 9C DB GUID: 44454C4C-3200-1031-804B-C6C04F4C3431 DHCP No DHCP offers received PXE-M0F : Exiting Intel PXE ROM

It repeats over and over. I think it is trying to Boot From LAN Network but I can find no way to disable Network in the BIOS. It will not start with the Hard Drive because there is no OS installed yet and seems the DVD is out to lunch also.

Any ideas?

    The person who owned the 1000 informed me the CD/DVD drive worked about 70% of the time. Guess that thing is shot also, sounds like that is the reason for no boot.

It is trying to boot from a network. You need to get it to boot from the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), there's no other way of installing the os, unless you can get another identical machine to load it with. If it doesn't recognize the optical in the boot menu, then you may have been more than a hard drive crash.

I installed a new internal hard drive in my Inspiron 1750 laptop. I am getting a No boot sector on internal hard drive error. How do I get it to boot up and get recognized?


Have you installed the Windows OS on the new HDD? Insert the new Windows OS in the DVD rom drive, shut down, Unplug, remove battery, plug in, at boot the new OS DVD should start and ask Press any key to boot from CD/DVD, tap key.

Inspiron 1000 doesn't save cmos settings


Hi

As you said that you haven't used the computer for long time then it could be the motherboard which has gone faulty not the HDD or DVD.
Try to use the new HDD with this old motherboard.
Or else you can seek help of Any Geek Squad or computer vendor.


In case if you have any more trouble do contact back in Fixya.
Thank you

Hi:
The DST error code 1000-1046 is definitely a failing hard drive. ..I am not sure why your laptop is not recognizing a CD in the drive, but you should go into your BIOS settings, and in boot sequence, make sure that the CD drive is the first boot device. If you can't boot from a CD, you are not going to get very far with installing a new hard drive...

I'm not sure why it allowed the deletions but that error message normally means that your drive has been damaged and is no longer readable. The ticking is a frequent sign that the heads are in a seek mode and not finding what you need to continue. It tries over and over again to find the boot sector but is unsuccessful.

Vertical Fold over or rolling on Dell Inspiron 1000


Get a new hard drive put into the system, with the cd's that came with the system, restore the laptop back to factory defaults and then after that the F12 function should work and windows will go back to working as well.
