When you upgrade to Windows Vista, you can use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer files and settings from a Microsoft Windows-based computer to the Windows Vista-based computer. When you use Windows Easy Transfer, you can decide what to transfer to Windows Vista. You can also select the transfer method that you want to use. See Microsoft's article on the subject at

When I try to boot up my Dell Latitude /D500 laptop.. I get the following blue Screen error message: The error message says: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent...

That error is usually caused by corruption in the Operating System files. You don't mention what version of windows you are running so will try to walk you through options with XP, Vista and 7. Vista and Windows 7 are the same steps to hopefully resolve this issue.

Windows XP:
You may need your Installation Disc for these procedures. First however, try doing this:
Turn the machine on and start tapping F8, and keep tapping. You should come to a black screen with several options on it. The top 2 options will be Safe Mode and Safe Mode With Networking. Select one of those, it doesn't matter which. When you highlight the option using your Up or Down arrow hit enter.
It will take you to the list of Operating Systems Should just be the primary system choice. Look and see if it also lists the Recovery Console. If it does arrow down to it and hit enter. If it does not then you will need the Dell Installation Disc for your operating system handy. Put it in the CD drive and during boot up hit F12 to get the boot menu or whatever option it shows for it on your screen. Select CD and hit enter. It will load several files and come to the first setup screen hit the R for Recovery Console. Once in the console you will need to select the windows installation option by entering the number of the choice. Hit enter.
If it asks for the administrator's password, just hit enter, by default it is blank.
You should see a command prompt with a blinking cursor like: C:\> and the cursor blinking next to it. Type in this command: chkdsk /R and hit enter it should start showing it scanning your drive for errors. Let it run all the way through and watch the results as it will tell you it has found one or more corrupted files and repaired them. At that point you will have a blinking cursor again waiting a command. Just type in the word EXIT and hit enter. it will reboot. should go on into windows.

For Vista and windows 7, turn the machine on and tap F8, and when you get to the boot options screen it should default to Repair Computer. Hit enter and follow the screen instructions.
If you do not have the Repair Computer option on that screen, then you will need the Installation Disc for this as well. Put it in the cd drive and select the Boot Menu option. When it gets to the Installation screen using the CD you will see an option to Repair Computer. Select it and follow the screen prompts.

You will get to a Advanced System Repair screen. When you see it click on Command Prompt.

When you get the black command window type in: chkdsk /R and hit enter. It will warn you that you cannot do this on a locked drive. It will ask you if you want to dismount the drive by choosing Y for yes or N for no. Type Y and hit enter. It will take over from there and scan for and repair any corrupted files it finds. When it is done type in: EXIT and hit enter and then click on Restart Computer.

That should fix you up.

1 Answer to dual boot a Hard disk drive in windows 7.

Step 1: Create/Obtain an Installation Disc Yes, we're all aware most motherboards these days allow you to boot from a USB flash drive, but setting that up is a guide in itself. We're going to assume that you either already have a Windows 7 DVD, or have an ISO file. If the former is true, feel free to skip ahead to Step 2.
To create a Windows 7 disc, pop a blank DVD into your burner, and burn it as an image file with any of the countless apps that can handle ISOs. Our personal favorite is ImgBurn, but to name some others: Burn4Free CD and DVD, CDBurnerXP and Ashampoo Burning Studio Free.
Step 2: Create a New Partition Editor's note: Before continuing I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge the fact that data corruption is a possibility. Even though this guide is absolutely harmless, random software anomalies can and do occur - do yourself a favor and backup your precious data before proceeding. Moving on to more pressing matters, we will need to create unallocated disk space by resizing an existing partition in your current hard drive, and then create a new partition on that free space for Windows 7 to run on. Most of you who are reading this will probably only have one existing partition, dedicated to the operating system you're currently using.
With that in mind, to help you in the process of creating a new partition we'll be looking at two separate approaches. While Windows Vista has built-in utilities to resize active partitions, XP does not, and thus we must resort to using a third party application (GParted).

Create a New Partition on Windows Vista If you are currently running Windows Vista as your primary operating system, we can use its built-in tools to modify your hard drive partitions. You can also use a third-party tool called GParted, which we are recommending to Windows XP users (see below). You can skip to the XP section and follow the exact same directions if you prefer the GParted route for any reason. On Windows Vista, click Start and enter "diskmgmt.msc" into the search bar. A window titled "Disk Management" should open displaying basic information about the drives attached to your PC.
Right click the partition on "Disk 0" and select "Shrink Volume".

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM

"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
" found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.


Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.


You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.

Slow action

Windows 2000 runs best on the s353. I have tried running Windows XP on it, but ran into driver issues (Toshiba never released XP drivers) and there's not enough memory (I also have 256MB).
I doubt it's even possible to install Vista on that computer.

If you're running Windows XP, you could just work with it, you could upgrade the memory, or you could back up all your data, reformat, and install 2000. Note that I do not recommend Windows ME, and that I've had issues running Windows 98 on mine.

If your computer is running an old version of windows but it's an old installation and you've not maintained it, you might just need to run a CCleaner scan, defragment your hard drive, and disable any software that's running in the background and doesn't need to be (but don't disable your antivirus :P)
