Dimension B110 -4 years old- won't reboot -can't find MBR - hard drive crash or corrupted XP partition ? Ran Dell diagnostics after F12 - error code 1342 and 1344?
How can I get a recovery disk from dell to boot off? None came with the PC
Error message 0F00:1342 is serious and indicates a dying hard drive, you need to replace the IDE hard drive, reinstall XP and load all the drivers and applications.
If you reside in the US and are the registered owner of the computer, a disc containing the factory-installed operating system specific to your system, can be requested from HERE.
Note: Dell may charge for the disc.
