Dell inspiron 8100

When I push F12 repeatedly it does not give me the cdrom option. It says diskett, internal harddrive..cd, dvd, ect nothing comes up about cdrom and even when I chose internal hard drive it does not bring up a blue screen. It's like it's booting from whichever option I choose.

On dell inspiron 910 notebook trying to reinstall op system xp gets to set up then says cannot access this disc it is write protected how do i remove this to reload operating system, cheers


try inserting the disc then restart your pc. as soon as you see the Dell logo, press F12 several times. It will lead you to the advance boot options. highlight cd/dvd drive using your up / down arrow key, then press enter to continue. the OS cd should load fine.

When my Maxtor basic External Hard Drive is conected my PC won't boot up.


Verify in the BIOS setup (usually accessible by pressing F2, F12, or Del at boot), "Boot Device" submenu, that the system isn't programmed to also boot from an external device. If it is, it will try to boot off the Maxtor, but won't be able to since there's no OS there.
The system should be configured to start off the internal hard disk, and optionally the CD-ROM. Other options (ROM BIOS, PXE, USB, etc.) are usually best left deactivated or at lowest priority.

If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help your out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotton, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode, and remove the password for the user account locked out.

You may need to try installing windows xp. I had a gateway that had a brand new hard drive and wouldn't take 98, but installed xp flawlessly. Look at the computer and see if it says designed for Windows XP

Where do you find the P/N # on the Dell 8100 Video Card?


Dell 8100 is a tower and you can replace it with any video card and get better performance with a replacement.

PN typically means Part Number so that is probably correct. Also, if you call Dell support, if you give them the pc serial number, they should be able to tell you the part number of the video card. If it is out of warranty, just explain to them you just need the part number

I have done this before and gotten the info I needed.
