I'v have just bought a Dell Inspiron N5110 from car boot sale. This laptop turns on but will not get past the screen shown in the photo. Hard drive has been removed, all other parts are still in place. The guy who sold this laptop, had the hard drive removed.
Intel Core i5 Processor (unsure of exact speed or generation because unable to access desktop due to error).
HDMI, USB, Ethernet ports, and SD card reader
1. What does this error mean:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key.
2. I want to install a 1TB 2.5" hard drive. If yes, which Western Digital hard drive should I go for?
3. Curently it has 4GB RAM installed. Want to install 8GB RAM to optimise performance. please tell me which make/brand should I go for?
4. I also have a Dell recovery operating system windows 7 home premium from another Dell Laptop. Will this Dell recovery opertaing system work and install Windows 7 using the key located underneath the laptop near the battery area of the Dell Inspiron N5110?
Thanks in advance!!
