How do i Reinstall Windows on Dimension 3000

When i purchased Dimension 3000 it didn't come with a cd of Windows Xp Home Edition, rather it was only installed in it. Some friend of mine told me that the windows cd is copied into the hard disk of your pc. The problem i m getting is that i have a lot of spywares and my computer is running slow. I want to reinstall Windows. But how do i access the Windows cd that is imprinted on my hard disk. Would really appreciate your help, Ahmad Khan.

    had a serious virus problem. computer was working great after spyware removed using pest control. When it told me to reboot to complete repair I got a blue screen that said STOP: C0000135 (unable to locate component) This application has filed to start because basehwnfv32 was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. WELL, obviously the virus was imbedded on a system file and now it is removed. i have searched everywhere online trying to figure out what basehwnfv32 is and no luck. Its a dell Dimension 3000 w/no recovery CD. There is a recovery partition that I can access, but this really bites! The computer won't even go into safemode. it acts like it will start up but then goes right to the blue screen. Will a recovery disk help me from having to restore the computer and lose everything?

    on my dimension 3000 I installed, ran, and rebooted as instructed a trojan horse removal program. NOW, I am able to sign to myu computer, it logs on, BUT there are no icons on my desktop...not even the START button, therefore I am not able to access anything from my computer.

    I can access (f) keys, but it won't reboot to an earlier known good configuration.

When you see the Dell screen on startup hold CTRL and tap F11. This will bring you into the Dell specific restore utility.

There area couple of solutions to fix this problem 1. search your hard disk for A) drv or drivers folder in which you will be having I386 folder and run setup.exe file to reinstall the os. B) Remove all the spyware from the add/remove programmes in Control Panel. Then os will work fastly. C) Use the System Restore application to the early date so that all the useless programmes will wash away. D) Search your hard disk for an image file whcih contains the windows os

I tried the CTRL-F11 and it didn't work on the splash screen when the computer reboots. I had to wait until I got to the second screen that was blank, except for www.dell.com listed at the top.

hi, if you really want to fix this that is repairing the windows software without losing any file here is what to do 1. get a windows xp home edition cd 2. insert the cd into the system before it boots to that level 3. the system will tell you press any key to boot from cd. press a key 4. after it has loaded all files needed when it get to a point it will bring out option of pressing f8 to agree with terms and conditions make sure you press F8. 5.it will now ask do you want to repair or install a fresh copy of windows to repair press r and to install a fresh copy press enter, make sure you press enter. 6. it will now tell you that the has been a windows on the system before that do you want to repair it? now is the time to press r 7.so any other thing that happen will now be automatic, when it finishes it will restart itself and continue the installation of windows xp here you might fill some important things like name, date and time etc.

Black Screen on Dell Dimension 3100 on boot up. Running Windows XP Home Edition. This happen before you get to the Windows login screen.


If you have a black screen it means the system cannot boot into your master boot record, you should reinstall the system using a bootable Windows XP CD, and perform a repair,( not the Repair Console).

When youre in the Windows XP Wizard screen, press enter , accept the license agreement, and then it will check for existing windows xp partitions, press R to repair the existing Windows XP installation, and wait til it gets your system restored.
