Mi inspiron 6000 went into hybernation by itself.. now when i turn it on i got a black screen and only the mouse move what can i do?


Hi there,

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Its a Black screen error.

Which is the operating system?
When does this happen,as soon as you start the computer or after the windows logo?

Access the link below and try to perform a starup repair, as it might help us to fix the issue.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925810

If the issue persists after performing the startup repair, try to perform a system restore.
1. Insert the installation disc.
Note The computer must be configured to start from a CD or from a DVD. For information about how to configure the computer to start from a CD or from a DVD, see the information that came with the computer.
2. Restart the computer. To do this, click Start , click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart .
Note If you cannot restart the computer by using this method, use the power button to turn off the computer. Then, turn the computer back on.
3. Set your language preference, and then click Next .
Note In most cases, the startup repair process starts automatically, and you do not have the option to select it in the System Recovery Options menu.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options menu, click System Restore.
7. In the System Restore dialog box, click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.
8. In the list of restore points, click a restore point that was created before you began to experience the issue, and then click Next.
Click Finish.

The computer restarts, and the system files and settings are returned to the state that they were in at the time that the restore point was created.

Post back if non of the above works.

Hope this helps.
Cheers!!

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

My dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger


This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.
