If you turn the computer on and press the F8 key do you get a menu that starts with Safe Mode? Select Last Known Good Configuration, it should set you back to before you updated Windows.

How to desible dell frimware bios update


go into your Dell Maintenance program, or whatever it is called in the All Programs list under Dell. If it has updates listed then turn off or change setting so that updates are either not done or require your approval/management. Else, if your model does it thru Windows Update, do not do it! Hope that helps.

Ordered a Dell Windows refurbished computer it goes thru all the checking drives then it won,t read to anything


you need to contact the seller as it must have come with some form of warranty. It sounds like either the hard drive is faulty or your windows installation has become corrupted.

Has it ever worked, what happened since last time it worked and then not working, was there a windows update, what version of windows.

There are so many questions to be asked, we need you to give us the full info or we can't really help.

What,s the deal with windows updates in Windows XP,i have a dell laptop with XP home edition.How shoul'd i configure automatic updates,does it need to be turned on automatic download and update 24/7,or...


What I'd do personally. If you have a broadband connection. Just enable the update program to update during the early hours of the morning. Say somewhere between 1AM and 6AM. This can be set so windows will automatically download, install, and configure the updates for your system. Remember, for it to be able to do this; the computer must be on.

This way it won't be a hinder to your every day internet usage, and it will do it's business while you're not using the computer. I have mine set up the same way and it's really nice. A simple reboot on some mornings is all I ever have to worry about and my PC is always up to date.

Dear SherriJ:

Some time you might get this issues with the updates if they doesn't install properly or the computer turns off while instaiing updates.

However you can select last known good configuration of restore you computer to earlier time.

I would recommend you to keep the automatic updates on that will help you keep your computer in a good state.
