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.

How to boot from a external dvd rom drive on a dell optiplex 3020


Anonymous,
You can plug your device into the USB PORT. Start the computer and press the F12 key. You will then see options that you can boot the system to. USB storage is one of the options.
The computer attempts to boot from the sequence of devices specified in this list:
Diskette drive
Internal HDD
USB Storage Device
CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive.
Onboard NIC
Thank You,

Get message internal hard disk drive not


This may mean that your computer is trying to boot from a non-bootable drive. Try hitting f12 when you restart the computer and select which drive would have your OS on it. You want to change the boot sequence to diskette drive as your 1st choice. The order should be Diskette Drive, Internal HDD, USB storage Device, CD/DVD drive.

Dell Inspiron 1440 notebook cannot start.


I have seen these symptoms before when the hard disk drive has failed. It will hand on the POST screen (The part with the DELL logo) for slightly longer than usual due to fault with the drive, after that it will attempt to boot and error from the hard disk so quickly you see nothing but the laptop appear to cut out. Although the hard disk is the most likely thing to be at fault these issues could potentially be caused by any one of the parts within you laptop being broken.

If you are fairly tech savvy try downloading this utility "Seatools" http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ burn it to a bootable CD. Put the bootable CD in you DELL laptop and boot off it, by pressing F12 and selecting to boot from CD/DVD drive. Then run a "Long test" once this test is complete the software will advise you whether the hard disk is faulty or not.

If you are not confident in trying this I would recommend taking the laptop to be diagnosed by your local computer repair business.

To start the systemrecovery:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Computer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer. Note: If your computer does not havean internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be requiredin order to recover the Operating System using Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the computer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
Note: Ifthere are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.
  1. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

Hi

Thank you for your query

What you are explaining is a classic windows loop

Unfortunatley the only way around it is to reformat the PC

Please do the following

1) Simply put your recovery CD provided with your laptop into your DVD/CD rom drive and then allow the laptop to restart

Then simply follow the instructions on screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Reformat on Dell Inspiron 1525


Yes, a reformat wipes the disk clean. There are special programs for this. The Dell recovery CD's (DVD's) will have the program. The usual command is "Format C: /v" without the quotes. The /v tells the program to verify every sector as it formats. Back up every thing that you need first as there are no second chances.

Startup with F12


Welcome to FixYa! Delete is the BIOS setup key at POST. F12 is a one-time boot option. Safe mode is accessed by repeatedly pressing the F8 key at the first Windows splash screen. Post again if you have further questions. Steve
