Dell now allows users to order a set of recovery disks to perform a system restore of their computer. Users can only do this once, so if you need a set of disks shipped to you from Dell, be sure you keep them in a safe place, as this is the only time you will be able to send away for them.

Before You Order Dell Recovery Disks
There are a couple of things you'll need to do before you order Dell recovery disks depending on the age of your computer. If you get the recovery disks, you might want to go to the Dell Drivers and Downloads page to make sure you have the very latest drivers for your computer, as the recovery disks you get might not contain the latest updates.

HERE is the order page.

if it is not showing a connection check to make sure that your modem is working properly, try resetting the modem plus it your internet service provider gave you a disc please run it so that it can download the proper drivers for your modem so that it can connect to the internet.

Go to the device manager and check the correct driver is installed and that it is working properly:
Go to control panel and click on hardware and sound. Click the device manager and look for 'mice and other pointing devices'. Expand the menu and right click on the touchpad driver, click on properties and check that it is working properly. You can also click the drivers tab in this window and try updating the driver.

Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.

Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

but the battery is bad, remove the big battery it is shorted now.

and now the HDD is bad.
why in the world waste or worse money on this junk
far far better fish in the sea, far newer, and cheap. used.
this lappy has CCFL back lamps that went bad long ago.
no fix for that under $100.

this PC has no value at all, why mess with this pig.

You have to go into the BIOS and reset everything, including the Boot Sequence and which drive to access the operating system.

Battery in the right way around?

Dell Computers &... | Answered on Feb 25, 2020

See the videos. CR2032 Lithium battery. They are all the same. Very easy job, but unlikely to be what your no boot situation is about.
