Re: Code 10 error

I've come across this before in some laptops, the manufacturers stupidly, dissable the wireless card in the bios as default, so if you know how to get in there, it needs to be enabled. Only other thing a code 10 means is the hardware is faulty, but if it was ok before, should be ok now.

How to make recovery disks to restore to factory settings. My hard drive is dead had to put in a new one.

Find a laptop similar to yours and make the disks from that. You can often just find the image that you need for the recovery disks on the internet, and burn them on any machine to the disks and then use them.

Your hard drive may not be totally dead. Try logging in in safe mode, by hitting the f10 key when the machine is booting.
Sometimes it will boot into safe mode when it wont boot into normal mode.

Also, the operating system may been been corrupted, but the data on your hard disk may be able to be recovered by using your current disk as a slave disk. You may need an external hard disk enclosure for this.

Good luck,

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000 HELP?!

This is not an easy one to deal with if you don't have some things like a boot disk. The error is most likely caused by something that was installed or restored wrong. The best windows option is to use F8 and select last known good config. Then if it starts you can uninstall any software that you added just before this error..IF you cannot do that then you need to be able to boot to a separated disk and use file utilities to remove any programs that might be causing this.

Try pressing F8 whilst booting to get into safe mode, if this will not work your only option may be to restore to factory settings either from the hard drive partition or from a Windows 7 DVD.

I have an IBM T43. When I try to start it up, it says error loading operating system. What can I do to fix this? Thank You!!

First, you need to check your BIOS to make sure the Hard drive is set as your primary boot drive.

Second, You need to do a complete diagnostic on the hard drive. Many times computers come with a chkdsk option but if not you should be able to make one on a different computer by downloading a disk diagnostic from IBM and putting it onto a bootable CD.

You need to determine if the hard drive is still good before doing anything with the software.

If the hard drive is good try booting into safe mode.

If it still does not load you may need to reinstall the operating system. Depending on the version you can do that without erasing all your files.

XP wont boot and i cant boot from the restore disk. I get error code 1000-0146 when i run the DST Short test

That error code sounds like the Hard Drive is failing or has failed. Can you boot into Safe Mode? Hit F8 as you power up and choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt. If you can, enter chkdsk /r at a command prompt (the black window you'll see). You say you can't boot from the restore disk - why not? Are you booting to the green Dell Windows XP disc that shipped with the computer? Check the boot order in Setup (the BIOS) and make sure it looks to the CD drive first before trying to boot to the hard drive. SpinRite is a good utility for fixing these things, but not free, and involves booting to CD.
Hope this helps!

Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

Lenovo X60 Laptop blue screen error wont boot up

Try to go into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn on the laptop.

If you get into safe mode then go into system restore and choose a date when the laptop was working properly. Let it rollback to that date and reboot the computer and let it go and see if it goes back into windows.

If you get a blue screen even when trying to go into windows then the operating system is corrupted and you'll need to do a factory restore on the laptop, meaning the hard drive would have to be wiped out and the operating system put back onto the hard drive.

Brand new v5535 notebook won't set up keeps coming up with error

Try pressing the F8 key while booting, at the boot option page select the last known good configuration and boot from there. If this does not work, press the F8 key while booting and choose boot in safe mode, then go to start/programs/accessorys/system tools/system restore. choose a date that the computer was acting normal and restore to this date. If this does not work do a reinstall with the system restore disk and drive/application restore disk. BPCS
