In the past i have used a vista recovery disk and a program called "Save me" to repair this issue. However I need to boot the machine from the machines "DVD drive". When I go into setup there is now option to boot from the DVD only the cd. If I choose cd it simply says device not found hit f1 to continue.
I have entered biso several times and cannot figure out the solution the bios page says the following:
Dell system DV051
Bios version A04 (4/4/1996
any help would be most appreciated.
