Question about Dell OptiPlex GX150 PC Desktop
My computer has been working fine until summer 2008. Then suddenly my little brother kicked the CPU and then when the system booted, a message appeared:
"Previous attempts at booting this system has failed at checkpoint [Vmgr]. For help in resolving this problem, please note this checkpoint and contact Dell Support Group".
I went to the Dell Support website, I typed by service tag, then in the next step, the links were broken and I was unable to find the solution.
Then I looked for the problem in other websites. They gave me solutions, and then still nothing.
I inserted the OS CD and still nothing. I won't neither boot up from a floppy disk. I changed hard drives and still nothing. I also tried pressing the F8 key to go to the Safe Mode and still nothing.
Is there anyone who can give me a solution to get the computer to start Windows XP normally?
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
I need more information.
But it sounds like your OS has critical errors, you may need to reformat the drive.
Can you get to the bios menu? (first screen after power switch press an designated F key - look fast for the f key to press)
Once in bios
Possible solution #1
Here is what you do in bios, if you can get to it.
Go to boot order, should be under IDE devices, switch from hard drive to cd, and insert your OS cd and restart.
After xp cd loads, choose format drive, quick format recommended for fast (might want to do it just in case this doesn't work), but full format takes a very long time and is more thorough.
Possible solution #2 (try this first!)
Look on your OS cd for damage on the cd! If it is damaged, you may need to replace it
I must go now, personal message me for more help if desired
