Dell 600m says no bootable devices! wont load xp?


Answers :

Sounds like the hard drive has gone bad.
\015\012On boot up, you have a chance to hit F12 for the boot menu.
\015\012Hit F12, and choose the diagnostics mode.
\015\012If it won't even go to that, it's a bad sign.
\015\012Reboot again, and hit F2 on the boot.
\015\012This 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
\015\012
\015\012If it fails again after theis, open the case and check all of the connections to the hard drive.
\015\012If it still won't boot after that, it's time to buy a new hard drive, format and reload everything.
It is not recognizing your harddrive you will need to make sure that your harddrive is connected properly then boot into bios and under the ide section have the computer check for the harddrive if it finds it there then save and exit and reboot please keep me posted on this i can help you further if needed regards mike
