    The recommended link relates to installation errors with Windows XP SP3. I am attempting to just reformat and reload a PC back to it's original state. It powers off while booting off of the recovery CD. Have tried deleting the partition and recreating it and starting over. Have went into the BIOS and chose FACTORY DEFAULTS.

RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS OR GERT AND EXTERNAL CD/RW USE THE FACTORY CDS
Many years ago, Dell started shipping computers with a small Dell Utility partition hidden at the front of the hard disk, followed by the main (Windows operating system) partition. Beginning around July 2004, select Dell computers in the Dimension and Inspiron model lines began shipping with a third partition hidden at the end of the hard disk. This third partition contains the "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" utility--colloquially referred to as DSR ("Dell System Restore"). This is a utility that can be used to return a computer to its "as shipped" state, with the XP operating system restored to the condition it was in when the user first unpacked the computer from the box. Pressing the right keys when the computer is starting up will boot this DSR partition.

Hi i got a ( dell Inspiron vista ) that i cant fix because of a virus - my question is can i use the memory board from that to put in my dell Dimension B110 dell system with XP home edition?


It all depends, if your dell inspiron vista (you didnt wrote the model) uses DDR2 memory you cant, because the B110 uses DDR memory modules (it's an older system). Probably your dell comes with DDR2.

OK, here is what dell says:

BIOS checksum failure. Possible motherboard failure.

Try re-seating your memory modules and see if the beep code disappears

Also, Try using the Dell Diagnostics which is located on a hidden diagnostic utility partition on your hard drive or on the Drivers and Utilities Cd that came with your computer.

  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.

Hard drive full running xp ,drive is paritionedc,d


Hello,

To delete a partiition is quite easy in windows. but you will need a third party application like "partition magic" to merge two partitions together, this could be costly

The best advice I could give you is to back up all your information and reinstall your windows straight onto one partition. This will improve your overall speed and also probly also free more space by deleting unwanted programs, spam etc.

Yes, you can change the operating system with the XP full CD. Boot from the disk at startup and it will erase the linux partition and install windows.
