    Hiren's boot cd is what you need, you can manually from dos switch your restore file so it will restore to an earlier date, provide of course you have auto back up on on your system. It is not real complicated but does require some basic dos knowledge.

    use your windows xp cd. Boot the computer from cd. When "windows set up" appear, press F10 to activate the recovery console. After Recovery console active , we will asked : Which Windows installation would you like to log on? Usually the answer is 1 then press enter. At the prompt, type chkdsk /r. This will repair and recover your disk. Hope it'll help..

Sata Hard drive errors and Raid errors


See this answer

Reboot your system and hit F2 as soon as you see the Dell startup screen (the options are F2 for setup, F12 for boot sequence).

In the System Setup screen, do these steps.

Select Drives:
Make sure your Diskette Drive (3.5 floppy) is set properly (Usually set to Internal)
Make sure that "Drive 0: SATA-0" drive is set to "ON"

Go to "SATA Operation":

Your system proabaly came set to "RAID Autodetect / AHCI" - THIS SETTING CAUSES YOUR SYSTEM TO GO INTO AN IDE LOOP AND DOESN'T ALLOW IT TO FIND YOUR FACTORY INSTALLED SATA DRIVE.

CHANGE THE SATA OPERATION SETTING TO "COMBINATION"

Reboot - make sure that the boot sequence is set to CD rom before HD and make sure that the reinstall CD is in the drive. Setup will load, hit enter to reinstall XP. Your HD should now be detected and you should see the licensing agreement.

If you have your files backed up I reccommend deleting the partition and reformatting prior to installing XP, it will give you that option after the license agreement.

Once you have successfully reinstalled the OS, Dell reccommends that you change the SATA Operation setting back to RAID AUTODETECT / AHCI (or back to whatever your factory setting was) to avoid any problems with other IDE devices installed on your system.

Ok, my dell inspiron mini will turn on, but after it does the dell thing in the begining, the screen just goes blue.


This happens because you might have installed some new software and hardware on your system.

Reboot your system and start typing F8 key
Check by selecting last known good configuration
If this does not work then boot the system in safe mode and try system restore and restore your system to backdate when it was working good.
You can also try removing some recently installed software or remove recent windows update.

Completely uninstall the software, reboot the computer then reinstall. I recommend that you download the newest version from itunes.com

Itunes 8 won't open up


It is recommended to disable the anti-virus during the download. Simply because there are so many different anti-virus software versions available and they can (and sometimes have) caused iTunes to not download correctly if at all.
Your OS is your Operating System. IE: windows xp 2002 If you do not know what service pack you are running you can check it by opening your start menu and right clicking on My Computer. When the drop down appears, click on Properties. Here you will see
System:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 (SERVICE PACK SHOULD BE LISTED HERE)
if its not service pack three then you need to update your operating system.
You can do that by clicking on the Automatic Updates tab. Make sure that Turn off Automatic Updates is NOT selected. I prefer the middle option of letting me pick which updates to install or not install personally.
I would do the check on your OS before uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes for sure though. Let me know how it goes :)

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

Iphone not detected in itunes8.2.0


Hi, welcome to fixya! I've read a lot of blogs about itunes 8.2 which is the latest version of itunes. The problem is when you update your iphone firmware and when it restarted your iPhone will be locked up, so beware of that. Why don't you uninstall your updated iTunes and install the 7.6 version and run the process. If still nothing detected, if you are using PC computers transfer your USB connection at the back of your CPU, cause front and back connection has a power speed difference. Try it first before downgrading your iTunes to a 7.6 version.

Axim X5 Align Screen Loop


I am by no means an expert but I have had the same problem that you are having and I found that after I took my X5 apart and cleaned around the underside edge of the plastic housing frame that was at the edge of the screen the problem went away. I also cleaned the front of the screen very well and put a new back-up battery in. I have not had the problem since.
