I have a Dell Inspiron 2600. I turned it on and got only a blue screen. someone looked at it to see if they could fix it and they were unable to do so. they have given it back and now i just get a black screen that says Error loading operating system. I cant even get into the set up menu or anything. Is there any way to fix my computer?

Can you boot into Safe Mode. Press F8 immediately after you start the computer begin pressing F8. This will take you to a page that looks very similar to the picture below. This is the Advance Boot Options. You need to use the up and down arrow keys to navigate on this page. Once you have moved the cursor to the option you want press Enter on your keyborad.

You have or have access to a retail XP installation CD that is the same version as the one installed on this Dell, eg. Home or Pro?
