SOURCE: I cannot get passed the Windows Error Recovery

You need to have the Windows disk in when you select the Repair option. If you are getting a bluescreen consistently, there is a chance it may require a complete windows reinstall or new hardware (depending on your bluescreen information).

SOURCE: The laptop turns on. However,

Hi,

Make sure that your laptop is not overheating. Overheating sometimes causes freezing. If your computer is not overheating but is not allowing you to even reinstall the operating system, run a hard drive diagnostic test. You might need to replace the hard drive due to bad sectors.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My dell won't reboot. Goes

"Step 1


I would suggest you to boot the computer in safe mode and check if you can boot to the desktop and post back the result. To boot to the desktop in safe mode with networking keep tapping F8 key during restart. Once you see the option to boot in safe mode with networking select it and press enter.


Access the link to know more about how to boot the computer in safe mode:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode



Step 2

If you are unable to boot to the computer in safe mode, you may try to perform a system restore from Windows Recovery Enviornment (WINRE Mode) to an earlier date and check if it helps you fix the issue.


If you have Windows Vista disk you may try to perform a system restore using Windows Vista disk:


a. Insert the installation disc.

b. Restart your computer.

c. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

Note: If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

d. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.

e. Click Repair your computer.

f. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

g. On the System Recovery Options menu, click System restore and select the date when the computer was working fine.


If System Recovery Options is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:


a. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.

b. Do one of the following:

• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.

c. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include System Recovery Option as a preinstalled recovery option.)

d. Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.

e. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.

f. On the System Recovery Options menu, click system restore and restore the computer to the date it was working fine.


After running the system restore check if you can boot to the desktop normally.

Srartup Repair Not working?


Try:Turn the machine off, turn it back on and IMMEDIATELY press two keys: CTRL +F6. If you hear a distress series of beeps (around 5/sec) keep pressing for about 1 min. After that release F6 but keep pressing Ctrl for a while.At this point the MS Windows Boot Console should appear and offer you choices. Choose Boot in Safe Mode With Internet.
Now, that combination Ctrl+F6 is maker specific. It worked for my DELL
towers. Other manufacturers reportedly have other "secret" codes.
You may try Alt, Del, PgUp, PgDn instead of Ctrl. Also F6 is not cast in
concrete. You may try other function keys. Some machine may require only one key to be pressed.Every machine MUST have a code like this. It took me about 10 min to find.1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.2. Do one of the following:• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include System Recovery Option as a preinstalled recovery option.)4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click system restore and restore the computer to the date it was working fine.

My inspiron 1018 won't boot. i need to reinstall or repair my software. it does not have a cd drive. please advice action.


The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 series of netbooks come with recovery software that can restore your netbook's original factory settings. Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbooks with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 can be recovered to the factory settings using a recovery partition on the hard drive.
Windows Vista or 7
Turn on or restart your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. Press the "F8" key repeatedly when the "Dell" logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
Highlight "Repair Your Computer," and then press "Enter."
Highlight the language layout you want to use for your keyboard and click "Next." Enter your username and password if prompted. Click "OK."
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and then click "Next." The recovery software on some Dell Mini systems may require you to click "Dell Factory Tools" followed by "Dell Factory Image Restore" and "Next."
Click "Next" if you understand the netbook will be restored to its original factory settings. The recovery process will begin.
Click "Finish" when a message appears saying the recovery is complete. The netbook will restart and boot up to the Windows Vista or Windows 7 set-up screen, where you can begin personalizing your netbook.

Windows XP Recovery
Turn on the computer. Press the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys at the same time while the computer is booting up to access the recovery software.
Click "Restore."
Click "Confirm" to begin the recovery process, which shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.
Click "Finish" to restart the computer and finalize the installation. Click "Yes" to restart the netbook again. The computer will boot up to the Windows XP setup screen


Here is a link which will take you to the site which will allow you to download a ZIP file with a WEB PAGE type service manual for your 1018, after a 45 second wait. (They want you to sign up for premium service but NOT NEEDED) Click again after wait?
After download, open the ZIP file and copy all contents to a new folder. Double click the Contents.html file to open in a web browser, then use the built in shortcuts to navigate the manual.

Windows 7 won't bootup, has error recovery. it loads files then nothing. screen is black.


Had that problem a few times myself.
Only way I could fix was to restore back to factory condition.
As you boot, watch bottom of screen closely.
depending on system, Should need to press F2, F10, possibly F12, might even be Del.
Most likely you didn't get restore disk, or have made one.
If you do, insert disk before boot up. System should boot to DvD.
Don't forget once restored to update.
Hope this helps

My toshiba satelite a200 laptop was dropped and when turned on will only go as far as loading.......thats it.....any suggestions thanks?


If it says "Windows loading" I am assuming it's vista or windows 7 then you can try to either get it to boot up into recovery mode. Let it come up all the way and reboot it. (chances are this won't work)

Chances are the drop caused the spindles from the drive to hit the platters and scrambled the data. The drive might be permantley damaged (if you hear clicking noises from the drive it's a goner)

You can try to either return it to the system restored state (factory original) which unless you have a usb to pata/sata cable and a second system you can try to see if the drive is readable from to be able to copy your files back off of the laptops drive (this will involve removing the drive fromt he laptop of course)


Once that is done try these steps, hope they will help you:
1. Copy all your files and documents to an external storage device.
2. Shut down the computer.
3. Turn the PC back on and hit the F8 key repeatedly until the Advanced Boot Option Screen appears.
4. Click "Repair Your Computer" if you are not already on it and then press ENTER
5. choose your country and click OK
6. On the "System Recovery Options Screen" click "Restore Application" which is the last option.
7. Follow the on-screen instructions
8. When prompted, click on "Full Factory Recovery"
9. "Next"
10. Click "Yes"
11. you will notice for a while it seems like nothing is happening, give it some time.
12. After some minutes, recovery will complete and you click "Finish"

If that dosent work (no factory restore partition) then you will have ot get an os disk and reinstall the os for the laptop and all the drivers.

If the drive is clicking/dead then you will have to buy a new harddrive and install the os from media (cd/dvd's)
