I have been getting these messages after the screen where " Dell "appears it reads " Cover was previously removed. strike F1 key to retry boot, F2 for setup utility "

if I press F1 it only gives me the message again. and if I press F2 the setup Utility askes me for a password and I dont know what it is!

I presume it is asking for the BIOS password, unless you have set one it should not give you this mesage (does leaving it blank work). Could you try to put the hard drive in another computer reomve what you don't need (and backup what you do) and see if it will work then.
