Hello. I don't know for sure where to start. I cannot boot a dell dimension 9200. It will not boot to safe mode. But I do have a spotmau disk that will get me to the desktop. I have attempted a system repair but cannot do it or a repair install because the hard drive did not boot so repair doesn't work. I am seeing a message that the bootmanager is missing. I went through the steps to rebuild the bootmanager but that did not fix it. I earlier found a virus on this computer and got help at emisoft to get rid of it. It was webcake. The computer worked for about a day after that and now nothing. I have done a hard disk check and it says it passed. The lights on the front of the computer are green and 1 2 3 are the diagnostic lights are lite in green. There are no beeps when the computer tries to boot. I am not sure if the computer is set to have minidumps but I will check all of that in a few minutes if I can. The hard drive is making no noise. Please help me. I am working now from another computer and I do have a usb 2.0/sata ide that I could hook up to the hard drive and another computer. My desktop has windows 7 home and the one that will not boot has windows 7 ultimate. I do not have an install disk only the recovery. The computer does have a valid key. When booting from the cd there is an option for system utilities that I cannot get to work. I am unable to download anything to the computer when booted with spotmau. All of the fixes with spotmau have not worked either. I am willing to by a windows install disk if that would solve the problem. I don't want to loose files and programs if possible. There are no restore points or backups on this computer. I did change the cmos battery but I don't think that changed anything in the bios but really don't know. I just changed it quickly and didn't hold in the power button. If I just restart the computer I get the black screen and nothing happens. I really hope someone can work with me and give me direction. I am at a loss at what to do.
