Sounds like you may have a corrupted/failing hard drive. If you have access to another hard drive, you can install another hard drive and install your OS and see if you still have the restarting problem.

I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop and now when i turn it on, it says something about a pb2 or pbr2. and then it dosen't boot. how can i fix it?


Hi,

I am one of the Dell Certified System Expert.

I believe that your error is loading PBR

For this mys suggestion is to have the hardware diagnostic test by pressing fn+ power while the computer is turned off. It will run hardware diagnostics to check hardware functionality.

If everything pass then you can try to simply removing the USB drive, reseting the bios and restarting the PC.
If still nothins is being resolved then you can try to restore your computer back to factory state.

How to reinstall the OS:
If the PC restore is still intact use Fn+F11 when you start the computer.
or you can try to use the recovery CD.

Hope this will help you resolve the issue.

thank you for using Fixya

My Dell inspiron 6000 laptop stopped working. It shut off while I was online and when I try to restart it goes to the very first screen (black, says dell in blue letters) then the whole screen goes blank...


If the Dell Diagnostics passes then the issue is in the software part of the computer.. You may have to reinstall the OS inorder to address this issue.. Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

If this option is not available then reinstall using the disc The issue will be fixed

My Dell Inspiron 6000 won't boot up. It keeps


Hi:
The DST error code 1000-1046 is definitely a failing hard drive. ..I am not sure why your laptop is not recognizing a CD in the drive, but you should go into your BIOS settings, and in boot sequence, make sure that the CD drive is the first boot device. If you can't boot from a CD, you are not going to get very far with installing a new hard drive...

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop won't boot up


Hi,
Pleae reboot your system and when you see the Dell logo , press the F12 key a couple of times .
In the menu, select only HDD diagnostics and post the results back . If the harddrive fails, then the only solution would be to replace the same. If the hardrive passes , we may be able tp fix the system

Thanks

Dell inspiron 6000 will not let me sign into windows at the sign in screen for windows.


The diagnostic check is because the system didn't shut down correctly.
are your the administrator for the laptop?
The administrator password is the password that you put in when you install the operating system, if you did not give it a password, then the administrator password is blank. (Windows Vista requires a password).
you can try "Adminstrator" as password.

the choice is press F8 immediately after the BIOS start up. select "last good configuration" and press enter.
go to the following link and download the utilities if you need.
