Dell Latitude won't boot up and reinstalling Windows XP is taking forever

When I turn it on it says that Windows XP can not open and gives me several optnions to try like safe mode, last configurations and normal boot up, none of which work. I am reinstalling Windows XP but it has taken 30 minutes to get to 14% reinstalled. Everything seems like it s in slow motion. Does that mean there is some other problem?

Dell latitude D610 continues to turn over on start up


You can try tapping F12 as soon as it starts, this should bring up the boot menu, try booting to the hard drive.

If it works, then the BIOS might have doped the HDD from the boot menu, your manual is a joke, and tells noting of the BIOS, so you would have to look through it and find boot order or first boot.

If nothing works, you need to take it to someone who can either go through the BIOS, and it this doesn't work they can extract the windows serial key and reinstall the operating system after cleaning the HDD the correct way, and that is not formatting it but erasing it.

Dell latitude d600 can't click my start button


I would suspect , 1, you have to many startup programs, use CCLEANER at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program will remove the junk from your Dell and in the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, disable ALL unnessary startup programs. 2, Download MALWAREBYTES freeware at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Run a FULL Scam , Delete ALL results , Reboot. If you are using Windows XP use these tips: http://www.wikihow.com/Speed-up-a-Windows-XP-Computer You could consider more Memory, your machine supports up to 2GB's.

Memory dump on boot, and then on reboot it says no device to boot too


Windows is severely corrupted, you must reinstall. If you get the same result after that (or you can't even finish the reinstall) then the hard disk is damaged, replace it and reinstall one more time.

When i turn my computer dell latitude d620 on it comes to the dell screen then the windows xp screen and then it goes black with nothing more than the mouse. what could be the problem?


This sounds like a video issue. Try starting the system into safe mode (after the dell screen, tap F8 to get the startup menu and then select safe mode) When in safe mode, go to the control panel and remove the display adapter driver from the device manager under System > hardware tab. Try booting into normal mode windows- you should be able to get into windows at that point. Download and reinstall the graphics driver from support.dell.com. If the issue reoccurs after you've reinstalled the graphics driver, it means that the video card on your system has gone out. At that point, contact Dell technical support if you are in warranty to get service- if not, try pricing the replacement video card from Ebay or Dell parts service.

Dell Latitude D410 - OS won't boot only after a few minutes


Seeing that both OS's (Windows XP and Ubuntu) are having a problem booting up, I also think the problem is with your HDD. I think you have a pretty good idea about computers from your use of terms :) There may be some corruption with the HDD. I would check that out first.
Good luck with your problem and thanks for using FixYa.com!!

HOW CAN I FIX MY COMPUTER? ITS READING UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME?


You need your Windows XP cd for this fix.

Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"

At this prompt, type the following

chkdsk /r

THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally

Laptop not booting


Was this a reload of XP, if so what was the cause for the reload? This sounds like the hard drive may have failed. I've had them where the reload seems to take , then it either won't boot or will have issues running properly. This is caused by one or two bad sectors in the drive. The drive has many sectors, depending on the size. First try reinstalling XP, if it has any problems during or after the install, then it's the hard drive. If this wasn't a reload or it's a new hard drive let me know and we'll take a different approach.
