On a different computer, you can download a "bios flash update" from the computer manufacturer's website. it may want to burn a cd with the flash utility and binary file to flash the bios with. boot from the cd or diskette, and then you should be able to boot the computer after that.

ps - it won't format your hard drive or erase your files.

My inspiron mini won't boot up,I just get a black screen and it says the file is possibly corrupt.The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum


Oh wow, and I bet that lil netbook does not have a cd drive, huh? Now you're kinda up the creek without a paddle.

Run the Check Disk utility but you need a drive to do it.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I left my Dell Inspiron on shut down overnight whilst it installed some windows updates. The next day it flashed up saying that the laptop hadnt shut down properly and needed rebooting and repairing. THis...


Boot up with the vista disk that came with your laptop and do system recovery again. Ignore the file corruption message because your going to be reversing your OS back in time to when your files weren't corrupted. Back it up to a time you know it works, the dates will be listed. Afterwards things should be fine, but know that vista does this alot for alot of people. NOTE: when you go back in time you will not have any files you had inbetween the date you back it up to and today. OTHER THOUGHTS: those mac commercials from way back when weren't just Evil Apple iPropaganda. Consider updating to Windows 7, I've never had a problem with it- where as your boot loop error happened to me on a weekly basis.

My acer laptop turns on, then tells me to contact the systems administrator. If I try to continue it shuts down. at one time I recall reading that the files have been currupied. is there anything I can...


It sounds like the Windows boot files have become corrupted. That could happen for several reasons, but if you're willing to just reformat/reload the operating system, we're only concerned with one of those reasons.

There are some viruses that can corrupt boot files. If that's what happened, then reformatting/reloading the OS will take care of it.

On the other hand, it could be that your hard drive may be failing. When you reformat/reload, the Windows system will tell you if it finds errors on the drive.

The following is from the Acer manual for your machine as to how to access the BIOS and enable a hard disk recovery:

To activate the BIOS utility, press during the POST; while the notebook PC
logo is being displayed.

Boot sequence

To set the boot sequence in the BIOS utility, activate the BIOS utility, then select
Boot from the categories listed at the top of the screen. [You should set the CD/DVD drive to be the first boot device, in case you need to reload from a DVD]

Enable disk-to-disk recovery

To enable disk-to-disk recovery (hard disk recovery), activate the BIOS utility,
then select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find D2D
Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the and keys to set this
value to Enabled.

[End of manual quote]

If you're not able to restore from the hidden partition on the hard drive, which may happen if the drive is damaged, then you'll have to try to restore using a Windows DVD.

Hope that's helpful.

File is corrupt. the file header checksum does not match the computed checksum


The file is damaged and cannot be accessed. If the file is on the hard disk, then a fresh/new copy needs to be copied onto the hard disk.

Compaq laptop won't boot. Get corrupted checksum error


You'll need to reinstall your operating system; either from a Recovery Partition or from your recovery discs. When you first power up the computer you will see some info come up about Setup, Boot Menu, & etc. Look for Recovery and the key it tells you to push; if you have a recovery partition. From there you can restore your computer to factory settings.

File header checksum does not match computed one. ???


You have one or more critical corrupted file/s which prevents the laptop from booting up.
To get the laptop operating again, you need to insert the Windows Vista CD and do a Repair and if this fails you need to install Vista again.
