Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

4 Answers

Windows will not boot up. It gives me an error message at the sta

After the initial dell logo displays the comp is redirected to an error message stating that there is a problem with windows and that it will not start. It gives options for starting in safe mode, saf mode w/ networking, safe mode w/ command prompt, and start at the last configuration the computer worked properly. None of these will work and then a blue screen with another error message displays. The top says unmountable_boot_volume. It offers advice about restarting and hitting F8 to get into the advanced setup to disable BIOS memory and then enter safe mode, but I can't get it to do anything. The bottom of the error message reads 0X000000ED (0X82F9B030, 0xC000009C,0X00000000, 0X00000000) I ran the diagnostic for symptoms associated withe OS not booting. It gets to one part in the test where it stops and gives error messages. The first said 0F000:0228 MSG:Block 1201280. Then after that each test says IDE device failed. Can you help. I hope so, because if not I'm up **** creek.

First off you must be from the U.P. :)

It sounds like you have a hard drive issue. You can try reinstalling the operating system by booting off the windows cd. I would recommend running a full check disk before installing windows though. If the harddrive has bad sectors your going to run into the same problem later on.

Hi there
On start-up hit F2 and go into the bios, if your hard drive is there, exit the bios and you will need to recover the the system. The blue screen that you get is known as the "blue screen of death" in the PC repair trade. "unmountable boot volume" means that Vital boot string is corrupt and windows will not start.
If you have a recovery disk then you will have to use that to recover the operating system. If its a hard drive failure you will need to purchase another one and use the recovery disk again

Good luck

    Hi there
    Yes you can recover the data from the hard drive but it has to be connected to another computer as a "slave device". Once you have connected it just brows the contents of the drive and copy your data to the other PC.
    When you are satisfied that you have all of your data you can proceed with the system recovery when you put the hard drive back into the machine

    Good luck

Comp frozen.will not connect to windows 7..error while initializing the NIC


PXE ROM boot is a network boot that kicks in when all else fails. If you have or can borrow a Win7 boot disk, watch the screen closely when powering on the computer and it will tell you which key or keys to press to force a boot from the the cd/dvd rom. If you can boot from the optical drive , it may give you the option to repair Windows. READ THE SCREENS CAREFULLY AND CHOOSE WISELY - if you do not you can overwrite windows and ALL of your personal data. IF you have a hard disk failure, windows should tell you so...

DELL OPTIPLEX WONT BOOT PAST WINDOWS LOGO


If the loading fails with an error message, try hitting F8 before the windows logo appears and from there Select "Safe Mode". If it works like that, one you're logged in Windows, perform a System Restore to an earlier point in time (when the computer worked).

Keep getting checkpoint errors, and have changed Sys Battery , reset Bios and when i boot it ,it goes to Dell logo and keeps trying to reboot. Windows will not load.


Try going to the BIOS and see if it reboots from there. If it does, then it is most probably a hardware problem. You can try re-seating the memory modules and If you have multiple modules, try them one at a time.
If it does not reboot while you are in the BIOS, then the problem lies on Windows. Get your DELL Restore CD or your Operating System CD and insert it to the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 while seeing the Dell logo, that should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.
Good Luck.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

Unmountable boot volume


hi,

-this can be a hardware problem or a software problem
-run diagnostics first on the computer
-turn off computer; while the computer is off, press and hold the "Fn" key then press power at the same time to initialize the test
-if you find error message like 0142 - this is a hard drive failure; contact your manufacturer for replacing your hard drive
-if no error is found, it is a corrupted Windows; you need to reinstall Windows, ensure you consult local technician to back-up files before installation.

cheers!

Booting problem


Try putting the computer into safe mode by holding down on the F8 button and selecting safe mode during the boot process. Once you get to the safe mode screen and windows appears, restart the computer.

If that doesn't fix the problem you will have to restore Windows.
