Remove all power completely from your pc
reconnect power and turn it on
press F8
choose Last known good configuration
press enter
if Last known good configuration doesn't work
choose safe mode
try deleting the downloaded file
use a anti virus if desired

Try shutting down your windows firewall. Sometimes the old windows will block the new windows installation. By disabling the firewall on vista that should allow to it to install. Becareful, there is not whole alot of drivers for windows 7 for printers just like windows vista problem.

Computer won't boot


I assume, you have windows Vista, on your computer. If the startup and repair is not repairing the system. The operating system has crashed.
If you have the windows VISTA dvd , there is a possiblity to run startup and repair from the dvd to fix the problem.
But before you do the same, just run the diagnostics on your harddrive.
1. restart your computer
2. Tap on the F12 a couple of times when u see the DELL logo
3. Select HDD diagnostics

Post back the results

Thanks

Startup main error problem


Depending on the operating system your running, click on the start button in the bottom left or the vista icon, then either click on "RUN" or in the search box type MSCONFIG and press enter.

Click on the startup tab and then clickon the disable all button. Then click on apply and then okay and then let the computer restart.

After it restarts if the error message stops appearing then you know its something that is starting up when windows boots.

Go back into msconfig and then you can enable any of the programs that you want to startup instead of the ones that you don't.
