  1. system went down some how, now i cant get it back up and running..

    Its a Dell Latitude LS, CPU 700, ram 256.. running on windows 2000..oh no cd drive or disket..only have a external drive..

    Ive tried to boot every freken way possible..(i think )even tried formatting my USB flash drive to boot, i think its not picking up my USB at start up, if it did my external drive would boot,because i have a boot disk in there...... i so close to spillen some gas on it and have a BBQ!

    any help would be great!

    External CD Drive?

    If yes, the Windows CD Full version should boot
    If No, contact Dell to purchase a CD Drive (or Ebay if it's cheaper, for your model)
