What you really need to do is if you have the originals that came with computer all you have to do is run the system restore and let it the cd run. While it completes the restore. Once it completes it will restart and then all you do is take out the cd once the restore completes. That should solve the problem. If not you can personally send the system and I'll receive the system.

Go into system restore under windows system tools and rest your restore point to one prior to restoring your computer to original factory condition. Then wait until you can determine which configuration error is the problem and then restore to original settings. Good Luck

After trying the steps in other post you could try a PC Restore.

These are the steps in performing Windows 7 PC Restore:
Step 1: Backup important files and data
Step 2: Remove non-essential peripherals
Except for the monitor, keyboard and mouse, remove all external peripherals including scanner, printer, modem or network cables, Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive, any other external devices (e.g. USB-attached devices), remove the computer from the docking station if you are using one.
Step 3: Restore the computer's software to original condition
Turn on the computer.
As the computer starts, press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
Press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select "Repair Your Computer" on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and press <Enter>.
Specify the language settings that you want, and click Next.
Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and click OK.
Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
Click to select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.
Click Next.
The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer. The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.

Willnotbootup says file missing statusoxc00000e9


this error can actually be hardware or software related. Things you can try.

**IMPORTANT: Attempt to backup important data if you still can that you may have before you try to fix the issue as it may cause data lost or corruption***

1. Attempt to boot using the last known-good configuration
-Restart the computer, tap F12 as soon as the computer starts until it takes you to the Advanced Options of Windows. Select Last Known-Good Configuration if available and see if your system will boot that way.

2. Attempt to boot in Safe Mode, if it works, try to do a System Restore to an available restore point when the system was working properly

3. Attempt to restore the computer to the original factory configuration or repair/reinstall Windows using your Windows disc. To try to go back to factory configuration if applicable on your system, try to restart the computer and tap F12 while it starts until you get to the Advanced Options screen and look for the option to Repair your computer, then log in with your Administrator Windows User account if prompted and choose the option for the Factory image restore.

If none of the above help , try to see if you can check if for hardware errors including the hard drive. To do so, turn off the computer, then press and hold the FN key on the keyboard. While holding it, press the power button for 1 to 3 seconds to attempt to power it on, release both keys. If successful, this will initiate a diagnostics test which will give report of hardware errors including the hard drive. If the hard drive fails, time to get a new one.

Hope this helps.

Computer keeps rebooting at login page. It starts up by saying it has 3 of 3 updates and don't turn off the computer and it then goes to the login page for a split second before it reboots, How do I fix...


Hi, this is a common problem with a vista update, dont know why it does it, just does! When it tries to restart keep pressing the 'F8' button and you should get advanced boot options menu where you can get windows to try and repair itself to an earlier restore point, if the problem persists then I'm afraid you'll be looking at restoring back to original factory settings. Below is an extract from the Dell manual found at
http://book-lab.ru/pdf/DELL-INSPIRON/service_manual_for_DELL_Inspiron_1525.pdf

Restoring the Computer to the Default Factory Configuration
The Dell Factory Image Restore option allows you to restore your hard drive
back to its original factory configuration as when you first ordered it from
Dell. This option appears on Dell computers that were originally pre-installed
with Windows Vista® and does not include computers purchased through
the Express Upgrade promotion or computers that were upgraded to
Windows Vista from another version of Windows.
NOTICE: When you restore the computer to the default factory configuration, all
data on the C drive is deleted. Before performing this procedure, back up personal
files. If you do not back up personal files, the data is lost.
1 Restart the computer. To do this, click Start → → Restart.
2 As the computer restarts, press <F8> until the Advanced Boot Options
menu appears on the screen.
NOTE: You must press the <F8> key before the Windows logo appears on the
screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the
Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see
the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this
step until you see the menu on the screen.
3 Press <Down Arrow> to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced
Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.
4 Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
5 Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
8 Select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory
condition checkbox.
9 Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

Hope this helps!
