Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9200 Notebook ?

Windows XP Pro was reinstalled but failed the genuine windows because it was a volume license key which has been blocked. I did give my disc that dell had sent to me to the technician but he obviously did not use it so i am wondering how or if i should reinstall it with my original disc. when i put the disc in it said to reinstall from boot. what does that mean? or should i just take it back to the technician?


Answers :

As you are unsure as to what to do then take it back to the techy. Reinstall from boot means altering the boot sequence so that your m/c will boot from the disk not the hard drive.

Depending on the BIOS this can be done either by pressing an F button (often F12) or changing the sequence within the BIOS.
