  • Starting off, I

    'm a PC tech working on a customer's computer.

    I've run into a wall on this machine that I can't seem to figure out, maybe someone here can help me out?

    The computer in question is a Dell Inspiron 1720. It won't boot to Windows without a cd in the drive. I've done an image restore with Acronis True Image and i've also done a full install from the Windows disk. I've used 3 different disks (including an XP CD) to no avail.

    Any thoughts on what to do here? I'm in a bit of a spot and this computer is starting to give me a headache.

    Edit: I've tried all BIOS settings that I can think of in the garbage Dell BIOS.
