Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. Select the “Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics”. Next select the “Express Test” and see if any errors are detected. If no errors are reported, then your operating system software is probably the culprit.
Hopes this helps.

    Actually Vista has improved by leaps and bounds since it was first released. Even XP had it’s problems when it was first released, ( XP has a service pack 3 out now). If your laptop is under warranty, try calling Dell.

    One last thing you might try is to perform an automatic Vista repair by booting from your Vista re-installation DVD.

    1) Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer

    2) Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.

    3) Click Repair your computer.

    4) Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

    5) In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.

    6) Restart the computer.

    Hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 1525 start up problem


This may be the result of a bad patch from Microsoft or other program. If you are using system recovery then you can try to restore back to before this occurred.
Please hit F8 when the computer is starting up to go into safe mode then use system restore. The other solution would be to go to safe mode then alter your start up programs . This is a bit more confusing but you can go to start run then type msconfig. You must be VERY careful when modifying this as it can cause more issues.
Hope this helps

The windows start up shows and then it shows the scan bar and then a black screen and nothing else. How do I fix this?


Reboot the computer and keep hitting F8 to enter the recovery screen. Boot into Safe mode, and run system restore (programs-->Accessories-->system tools). Restore your computer to a previous date when it worked properly.

My dell inspiron 1525 boots up like normal but when it comes up with where i normally log in, the screen just goes black, but you can still move the cursor, any ideas of what i can do please?


Hi,

The file which is known as "winloader" is gone bad. You should try to boot your computer with last known good configuration.

To do that, just restart your computer and keep tapping F8. Once you reach the advanced boot option menu you will be able to see the last known good configuration option.
Press enter on that option and your computer will be set to the last configuration on which your system was running fine.

With regards,

Ankit
