You have no built in DVD drive - did you get the optional USB DVD drive with it, or did you get one later for it ?

Have your dropped this mini notebook , or have you spilled liquid on it?

When does this happen ? Only when the AC adapter is NOT plugged in, or even when it is ?

If you have dropped this notebook , or have subjected to a physical jolt,
- make sure the main battery is properly seated
- your ram may need to be re-seated. Remove the main battery and the AC adapter from it, open up the panel on the bottom of the notebook to the ram, make sure it's all the way into it's slot(s).

However, dropping a notebook or having it subjected to a physical jolt, or spilling liquid on it, often damages things such that major parts have to be replaced.

Other than that,

- this mini notebook (a.k.a. netbook) has a 1 year warranty - if it's still under warranty, take it to a local laptop repair place.

- if it's not under warranty,
- you may need to use a USB DVD drive
- if your computer has Windows 7 Starter Edition on it, you may need to boot the computer from a Windows 7 Starter Edition DVD, or the equivalent Recovery disk if one came with the mini notebook (which I doubt), or a higher edition of Windows 7 DVD, in order to possibly fix your problem.

If your computer came with no Recovery disks, look on the Dell web site to see if you can get them for your model - if you can, they will probably be cheaper than buying just a Windows 7 DVD .
