Answers :

Did you try to boot from the repair CD?
\015\012Or did you try to restore Computer to it's original conditions?
\015\012Except for the monitor, keyboard, and mouse, remove all external peripherals including:
\015\012
  • Scanner \015\012
  • Printer \015\012
  • Modem or Network cables \015\012
  • Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) \015\012
  • USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive \015\012
  • Any other external devices (e.g., USB-attached devices) \015\012
  • Remove the computer from the docking station, if you are using one
  • \015\012
    \015\0121. Turn on Computer and as the computer starts press <F8> on the keybord until the advanced Boot Option menu appears (you have to do this before the windows logo comes up) If you don't see advanced Boot option menu, reset PC and repeat <F8> till you get it.
    \015\012Enter, select you language and log on as user with administrator rights. Select Dell Factory restore and then reformat and restore system software to factory conditions.
    \015\012This action will erase all data on drive C:\\
    \015\012Normally the first action would be to backup the data.
    \015\012If it's a new one with warranty I would contact Dell support for assistency.
    I wouldn't update the BIOS just yet. Reset the defaults in the BIOS first. One of the fuction keys will do that and it will tell you which one to do in the BIOS.

    After you do that let the system restart and redetect the devices in the system and see if it boots up. If you get the same message then go back into the BIOS (pressing F2 should get you in there). Look and see if the hard drive is recognized in there, if it is then you have a problem with the operating system which is why the system won't boot. You'll need to restore your computer back to factory defaults if you got discs with the system.

    If you don't see a hard drive recognized in the BIOS then that means the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced and then restore the system back to factory defaults.
