Dell Inspiron 6400 doesn't boot past dell splash


The hard drive has failed, or windows 7 is not compatable with the laptop. Try installing vista, if this works! there is a problem with windows 7, no change! have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

How to restore Dell 1550 Inspiron to actual factory setting


Unless your using a email program such as thunder bird or if it is a Yahoo or Gmail account I would not even worry about having to delete anything. Just send it back they cannot access private information without the password anyway. So send it back get it fixed and move forward with a new machine when it comes back? John

Have you tried resetting the BIOS defaults? In doing so, it will force IDE re-detection and often resolve vague boot issues.

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, it boots to the windows logo, then black screen with cursor. I have tried to boot in safe mode to no avail same problem. Can you assit me please. Thank you...


instead of Safe Mode, have you tried Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

If that doesn't work you may have corrupted windows system files.
You can rule out the hardware by downloading and burning a CD with a Linux Live system on it. That will boot into a Linux desktop without installing anything on your hard disk or overwriting your files. If that boots OK then you know that your windows system files are damaged and you may need to reload windows.

I have a dell 1501 inspirion laptop how to i re boot it to factory settings i did it once but don't remember how


If you want to get it back to the original settings without the latest patches, turn on the computer and hit <Ctrl> and <F11> together when the blue bar displays with www.dell.com during the boot sequence. If you miss the timing, let the computer boot-up then shut down again and retry. This will restore from a compressed partition on your hard drive. Thus anything you have added (programs/files) will disappear. Do not power down during the Restore sequence or you could end up with an unusable machine.

Use the Windows System Restore if you just have a bad driver.

I hope this helps.

Dell laptops usually have an iso partition on the hard drive that you access during boot. If so, when you see the blue bar at the top that says www.dell.com, press ctrl+F11 immediately. That should take you to the restore partition where you can re-install all the factory installed software like when it came from dell new. If you wait too long, you'll have to wait for boot and then restart and try again. You may have to do a cold boot (power off and on) If there is no blue bar when you first turn it on, then the iso partition is gone.
