Problem with startup of XPS 1530

My Dell xps m1530 won't start vista. it used to work fine, then windows update ran and it restarted. After the restart, the computer started but Vista didnt, it just sat on the loadignscreen for 15+ minutes. Startup repair goes to the loading screen, then goes to a blank screen.
However, Knoppix runs fine from CD.

    Vista won't load, it gets caught on the black loading screen every time. If I try to go to Setup (F2) or Boot Menu (F12) they both say preparing and then go to the frozen black screen. I just got the computer yesterday and it happened after installing the updates. Please don't tell me it's broken already?

Does a samsung stratospher need a sims card to ativate?


It depends on the carrier. After checking the specs though the phone comes back as a 4G LTE device so you will need a SIM card for ATT, Sprint, and Verizon. If you are on something like Straight Talk or MetroPCS, then they do not use SIMs

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Screeen is upside down


    If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

    For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

    I hope this helps.
