Sounds like the hard drive has gone bad.
On boot up, you have a chance to hit F12 for the boot menu.
Hit F12, and choose the diagnostics mode.
If it won't even go to that, it's a bad sign.
Reboot again, and hit F2 on the boot.
This will take you to the BIOS setup. Go down the list until you get to the hard drives and check to make sure it has the hard drive as the master on 0

If it fails again after theis, open the case and check all of the connections to the hard drive.
If it still won't boot after that, it's time to buy a new hard drive, format and reload everything.

Why don't my Dell 600m USB ports work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/inspiron-600m

Look for any drivers missing, in the device manager.

You will probably need, the chipset driver, to make the usb port work.

You will also need service pack 1, to support the usb function.

Good luck

Dell xps wont boot from dvd just cd


Sounds like you have only a CD drive. To boot DVDs you need to have a DVD drive installed. The computer probably came with a CD drive because Win XP came on a CD.

Windows can't find any hard drives...when installing xp


It sounds possible that your Windows XP install CD does not contain the necessary hard disk device drivers for the drive used in your Dell Vostro laptop and you would need to load these drivers separately during the XP install when the option is given to use third-party device drivers.

Some laptops may provide options in their BIOS settings to use a compatibility mode of operation for newer SATA hard drives that will make them visible to bootable utilities such as disk imaging software and older OS install CD's.

Have you tried resetting the BIOS defaults? In doing so, it will force IDE re-detection and often resolve vague boot issues.

Looking PCI Device


Check Device Manager.
Open System Properties. Click on the Hardware tab than click on Device Manager. Scroll through the listed icons. If you see a yellow ! or ? than there is a device that XP is barking about.
