Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron e1505 and when I boot the laptop, the startup repair says it can't repair the startup. I am willing to reformat the laptop but have some files I need to save. I can get to safe mode with the command prompt but don't know enough commands to download the data to a flash drive. Please help.
It sounds like your leaving your Installation Disk in the drive. Take that out and run safe mode, then just plug in your flash drive as normal and it should detect it and you can copy your files to it. If not, use s CD and burn the files you need on them then you can proceed with Wiping the drive. If this fails, Install XP but there is a option to not have the drive formatted thus this keeps all files in tact. Reinstall XP like this, take the files you need and then reformat and reinstall XP and you should be fine. After doing all this, run a virus scan and have it run regularly because it may have been a virus that caused the problem to begin with.
Hope This Helps
