This is not an easy task for a non-technical.
You need an qualified technician to take care of the problem.

Start your computer, before it gets to the error hit the F8 button. This is Safe Mode. Click on Last Known Configuation and follow the steps. The purpose it to load your computer to an earlier date before you had problems. If that does not work then you should reload Vista with the disc that came with your computer.

Hi there,

You need the Installer CD to install and recover you Windows OS.

You can purchase for a new Windows Vista Installer or you can barrow from a friend.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for further assistance.

Need Vista Home Basic


Usually the operating system is on a separate partition especially for reinstallation when things go pearshape.

Some models used the SHIFT 0 when booting up to get to the windows installation. If you have deleted ALL partitions and reformatted then you have a real problem. Call DELL if you have not deleted partitions and find the specific s]sequence of accessing the partition for your model.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Operating systems


first off, is this a laptop you bought brand new? if so it should have a current OS on it, im thinking Vista, in this case you are going to have a problem removing it if you want to use XP or Linux. But you can use the Virtual PC program to run any other OS you want without having to remove Vista.

Good Luck
