Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
Hi ..i turn on laptop, the microsoft windows XP window appears with the little box with the blue scrolling marque light going across the little box then it goes blank but you can see the the screen isnt total darkness then it flickers slightly.then the Dell Logo with the black screen appears this routine continues til i hold the power buttom down and hear a sharp click to turn off. then when i turn back on i get that message apoologizing for the inconveince that windows was shut down and the 4 choices of how i want to start my computer i have treid all 4 but nothing but the same as described...also makes sound like something is running inside like when you first put in a disk. do you have any idea what might be wrong.
This is a problem with windows you will need to reinstall you will either need to use the cd that came with your laptop (if one was included) or using the recovery partition. You can learn how to use the dell recovery partition in your user manual.

Please go through the below step, you can able to do it.
1) Shut down the Dell Latitude D620 if it's currently powered on. Click "Start" in the left-hand corner of the screen to access Windows' shut down options. Alternatively, press and hold the Latitude's power button, located on the top edge of the laptop's keyboard.
2) Turn on the computer by pressing the laptop's power button.
3) Press and hold "F8" on the top of the laptop's keyboard immediately after turning the computer on. If the Windows logo appears on the screen, you're too late and must repeat Steps 1 through 3 again. If you pressed it in time, a list of text options will appear on the screen.
4) Use your keyboard's arrow keys to scroll down to "Repair Your Computer." Push the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
