Blue screen started after updating system and restarting. Computer is now locked even after trying safe mode, it goes back to the blue screen. Error 0x0000007e (0x0000005, 0xF89937F0, 0xF89934EC). What is...


Hi, is your computer a Dell? If so, it should have a recovery partition. A recovery partition is just an area on the hard drive that came with the Dell computer in case you need to restore your computer to factory settings if it won't start up.

If there is no recovery partition, you should be able to buy a Dell Recovery CD.

This is how to access the Dell Recovery Partition:

Use of this advice is at your own risk. I can not be held responsible if there is any damage to your computer (shouldn't be, since your computer is already showing blue screen errors.)

Hope this helps and have a nice day!

Trying to install entir dell 4600 system I had a virus and I don't know how to reinstall it


DELL USUALLY HAS A RECOVERY PARTITION. TO GET TO IT YOU MUST PRESS THE " F11 " KEY MANY TIMES WHILE IT BOOTING UP. THIS SHOULD GET YOU TO THE SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTION. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. DELL ALSO HAS SUPPLIED RECOVERY CDs INSTEAD OF THE RECOVERY PARTITION. IF YOU DIDN'T GET THE CDS THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVE THE PARTITION.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.

Recovery disk for dell computer 8110


Hello,

The model is probably B110 and you can start the factory restore by restarting the computer and repeatedly pressing CTRL- F11 until you see the factory restore program start. Then follow the on-screen prompts to do a factory restore.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Blue Screen and error message at boot up


You can find the recovery sequence for your machine at Dell's support site. Bellow is a link to Dell support. Keep in mind that a blue screen indicates an operating system error, and may be caused by a hard drive failure. If this error is due to a hard drive failure the built in automated system recovery will not work, because it's stored on the hard drive.

Dell "Drivers and Utilities" CD


Hi, the "No Diagnostic Utility Partition Found" is returned because your laptop does not find the recovery partition on C drive.
Easiest way to create partition is with dell recovery cd. You can buy CDs from dell, buy finding contact on web site or buy from one of the following.
Dell Restore Disk: XP Pro SP2 for ... $35.00 - DIMOSOL - Digital ...
Dell Latitude D600 XP System Recovery CD ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...
Dell Latitude D600 Vista System Recovery ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...




Buy recovery cd according to windows version on sticker at the back of your laptop.
With recovery CD you wont need drivers.

Alternative solution is downloading drivers posted by Maanita after installing Windows from a generic Windows setup CD.

If you are running Windows XP do a system restore. But BEWARE. You will lose everything you have installed since you started operating.

The SAM hive is the security function of Windows XP. I am surprised that you can boot to Windows at all. From your description, it sounds like you have a virus infection.

Since you cannot access the internet or run any programs, it may be simpler to just try to re-image the system.

If your system is a Dell 4600 it should be equipped with PC Restore (At boot, just after the Dell screen, you should have a black screen with a blue bar across the top for about 1 second) when that screen appears, press CNTL+F11 and you should be able to re-image your system. (This will wipe out all data, but should get the viruses too)

If that fails, or you don't have a Dell, the boot to your XP CD and reformat the HDD and install a clean copy of XP
