Question about Dell Latitude E5500 Laptop

1 Answer

My Dell Latitude E5500 will power completely on, will even allow me to access the internet but it will not allow me to do a system restore, add or delete items , open any programs or run disk. I'd like to completely erase it and start from scratch but I'm not even able to do that,as it won't read the recover disk. I know whats going on is related to a virus, which is why i want to clear it off completely. I don't care about loosing the information or programs currently on the laptop. I am currently running XP Small Business and have the disk for it along with all the other disk for the laptop.

Have u considered switching and installing a new hard drive and using your old one to retrieve your files (if u have any important files) ?

If you want to start from scratch, you can always buy a new HD [super cheap like $40 per 320 GB] THEN, since you say u have WXPSB and the disc for the laptop [with all the component drivers], I don't understand why you haven't just done this already?
Who cares about a system restore! If it's that bad, then just dont use that as your main HD.
I can show you how to access all your data..... as long as your HD is operational, the data is in there. That virus just makes important stuff into hidden files and directories. Stop giving permission to programs without reading the terms..you'd be amazed to read what you're agreeing to sometimes!!
Cheers, mate!

Dell latitude e5500 will not boot even f8


Sounds like your laptop can't find an OS (operating system software) to load from. The OS is on your hard disk drive. Now you have to determine if the OS is corrupt or your hard drive is bad. Here is a link from Dell for your model:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_latitude_laptop/latitude-e5500_Service%20Manual2_en-us.pdf
To run a quick diagnostic, hold down the <FN> key next to the space bar while powering on the laptop. If your hard drive is bad you should get a "self test DST failed".
