Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I was on my Dell Inspiron 1525 and It was low on charge and when I took it off the power went out. When I turned it on again I chose Start Windows Normally out of a list of options. So it started up the Microsoft loading bar and then the mouse appears and then nothing happens. The mouse just stays there for a while and then it goes back to the Dell Startup loading bar and repeats the process. I have Windows Vista

D*mn Dells, Windows Updates! I have a Dell Inspiron 540 and received the same problem after putting it on sleep mode, of course I did a Windows Update earlier tonight. so this is not the first problem I've had after the constant updates from MS.

"Beep Beep....beep beep," with amber colored power light. Happened when I immediately booted the PC, no fans, no messages...nothing. Anyway, I did solve the issue - for now and after a few tries. I simply removed the power cord from the back of the computer. Keep in mind there is a green light that will remain on for about 10-15 seconds(Reason why it took a few tries is because this in not like my ancient'd have to wait 2,3 seconds before plugging it back in - I didn't know that when I pulled the cord without looking at the back.) After the green light went off, I plugged it back in, pressed Power and it beeps.

I did get a DOS screen, do not choose "Resume Windows" - if prompted...the computer simply shut down when i chose that. Choose the second option. See if this works, hope it does for many of you. It's one "solution" that worked for me.
I'm HOPING this is a slight hiccup, but knowing Windows..well, who knows what will happen.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 stuck in windows boot manager file \windows\system32\config\system status: 0xc000014c info: windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt ...

Here's part of an article on how to replace that registry file:

Look in the C:\windows\system32\config\regback\ folder.
There should be copies of the registry files stored inside that folder.
They are backed up periodically and stored in that folder.

If you create a MiniWin, BartPE, or a Linux Live CD, you can start the computer from CD and move the file system to the required folder, C:\windows\system32\config\.

My dell inspiron 1525 was updating and when it got to the 3 of 3 update it wouldn't go past 0% and then it will restart itself and do it over again

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Computer won't start, solid amber light, no fans, no keyboard, nothing. There is power to monitor and modem. What's wrong and how can I fix it?

That my Friend is the Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, during a power outage with no surge protected, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck

My Dell Inspiron 530 wont turn on

yes buy a power supply. I have seen hundreds of computers that have gone through storms. Remember a Dell usually uses a special power supply.
For a good deal look on ebay for your specific model, They almost always have "Buy it Now" deals.

Inoperable DVD RW in Dell Inspiron 1525

Probably the quickest way to verify if the drive itself is good is to boot your restore disk. If it boots that, then it is probably a driver conflict.

Start by turning off anything you can in the bios. Network, printer port, usb, etc.

Reboot and try deleting drivers in the device manager. Then let it rediscover the devices. Sometimes that will do it.
