I have the install dvd from dell I ve Done All The Above the computer still will not

Boot for me reformat or install the OS

Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 6 years ago.
Go into your BIOS using F2 and make sure it sees and detects the hard drive.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes HDD is under the ATAPI CD-ROM
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 6 years ago.

Thanks! Run the Dell Diagnostics Tool to see if anything fails....

 

1) Turn on the computer

2) Start tapping/pressing F12 to get Boot Menu Options

3) Select Diagnosts Tool and press enter

4) Run Full Test

 

 

Try to boot from the Hard Drive first under the Boot Order/Sequence in the BIOS and make sure you change/save the settings before boot. Then run the diagnostcs tool if it still does not work.

 

 

Good Luck!

Test comp with one error code grahice test timeout keyboard response 2000-0333
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 6 years ago.

I download the Dell error codes from this site http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/suppor t/dsn/en/document?c=us&cs=RC959303&l=en&s=gen&docid=14B3819735D6B40EE0401E0A55177ED2&journalid=484F498C6846535AE040A68F27281EC9&Query=&SystemID=&ServiceTag=&contenttype=-1&os=-1&component=-1&lang=-1&doclang=en&toggle=false#1

It has 2000-0333 as Graphic card test timed out waiting for keyboard input. Meaning you didn't complete the Dell testing.

 

 

Anyways thats ok.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Go into the BIOS and change the BOOT Sequence/Order to...

 

1) DVD/CD-ROM Drive

2) Hard Drive

 

Save/Exit. After you do this, make sure your Dell Vista DVD is in the drive and try to boot from it. If it still does not boot from the DVD, try the F12 again to get it from the DVD Boot.

 

Let me know if it tries to but then doesnt....

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It did not work I got the code about 50 min before the test stop
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 6 years ago.

I need more info as far as doing the Recovery. Im starting to think maybe your dvd/cd-rom is having problems and have read this to be an issue on the forums...

 

 

With or Without a hard drive, you should still be able to load the Operating System from the disc but of course when it comes to the partition part, you should be forced to cancel/quit if the hard drive wasnt showing up.

 

In your case, you cant even boot the DVD. Im going to suggest you replace the DVD/CD-ROM Drive and then boot from the Vista DVD to install it back on there.

 

 

GOOD LUCK!
