I let my friend borrow my computer for a few months. Bad freaking idea, dont do it. Well when i got it back from my vacation and tried to boot it up it goes pass the dell logo screen and then right after that it says error loading operating system.
Ive looked at many threads about this problem but nothing seems to fix it. I have a Dell dimension 8250 512 mb ram. 60 gig storage 2.5g processor. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. My friend said that it was working fine when he brought it back to me. Ive gone into the bios and under the harddrive i can only change it to off or auto so i cant put it to large or lma or whatever other ppl could change theirs to that fixes it. the boot sequence shows the IDE cd rom first and the HD second so that is fine but when i try and put in my cd recovery disc or a windows xp disc it wont work. So i dont know what is wrong with that either.
So i cant put in a cd and the bios seems to be working fine. Can anyone else tell me what might be wrong? thanks in advance
