First, be sure you have your genuine copy of Windows XP -if not, you can contact Dell and ask them a copy of it
1)insert the XP disc on the drive then turn off the computer 2)Turn on again the computer and once you press the power button, keep on tapping on F12 3)You should be seeing the Boot Options. Select CD/DVD and keep on tapping on ENTER once you see the message: "press any key to boot from CD/DVD" 4)if you have done it succesfully, you should see a loading bar that says, Setup is loading files. 5)wait for it to load and Just follow the steps on this link:

    Good afternoon, I wanted to thank you for the very helpful advice you've given bhoyar_lp as it is helping me as well. I do have a question however, after tapping on f12 and the boot options come up , I choose cd/dvd but tapping on enter made it go into the start window for me, is there something else i should be tapping, instead of enter?.

    I have a virus on my laptop same model as mentioned and am choosing to just wipe it out completely and reinstall windows. I do have a genuine copy of it but it's not allowing me to run the disk, as it won't read it.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Just be sure you are tapping on enter until you see Windows is loading files or Setup is starting.

    if it still doesn't work,

    That could only lead to two things:

    First is that it could be a problem with the CD.. try using a different OS CD..

    Second: it could be a problem with the cd/dvd drive itself

    Kindly tell me what would be the result..
