My Dell Vostro 1700 will not boot up. I've installed a different HD, that didn't work. I've run test with nothing found. I have a protection software and still my system is not working. I need help


Please restart the computer and keep tapping the F8 key on the keyboard once you see the Dell logo unitll you see windows advanced boot menu, choose last known good configuration using your up and down arrow keys on the keyboard. Once highlighted then press enter key. This should take your computer's settings to the last time when your computer was working fine. Also remember to remove any external devices (printers, USB flash memory, memory cards, External hard drive or CD/ DVD drive etc) Also remove CD / DVD present inside the CD/DVD drive.

Dell Vostro will not boot up


During startup, just before the Windows splash screen appears, you should be able to hit the F8 key for a list of startup options. It looks from your post as if you know how to do this.

One of those choices should be to disable automatic restart on system failure. (or words very similar to that.) Use this choice to get into safe mode if you can, or into regualar windows.

Once there, go to the system restore feature and restore to a date when everything worked.

This error message is a message pointing to a piece of software (as opposed to hardware, as so many of these messages are).

The next best fix is to reinstall the OS from the ground up. this may be a major hassle, depending on the data you have on that hard drive.

Good luck

Black screen


I had a much older dell laptop (2001?) that did this. For whatever reason it had 5 or 6 drivers loaded for the monitor/display. Of the five, four were identical. I disabled the identical ones and kept the normal one enabled and this solved the problem.

Dell Vostro 1700 won't startup - woman in need of help!!! :'(


Don't choose safe mode.

If you have in the F8 options, a Recovery Console select that and run at the command prompt:

chkdsk /r

That will look for and repair disk errors.

Otherwise, look for and select Restore my computer, from this F8 menu.

Failing that you will need a copy of Vista or XP but if you have a 64bit OS like Vista64 you will need a copy of that.

Let me know what happens. But, I won't be online for much longer so I'll send a message to a friend of mine in Ireland who can help you further since he's in a different time zone.

Regards,
Worldvet
