Question about Dell Inspiron 1150 Latitude D600 14.1 LCD Display-LP141X14 CD-ROM Drive

2 Answers

Dell Inspiron 1150 will not start windows

This computer was working fine then one day it seemed to BRICK.

it is giving me the following message:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the oringinal Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

    OK I hit ENTER before I was finished explaining my problem



    I do not know if I can find the original setup CD-ROM. Is there any way around this? I hit f8 on the BIOS screen and tried to boot windows using the last known good configuration and that did not work... same results as above. I tried to boot windows using safe mode and that did not work.



    Is my only option going to be finding the oringinal setup CD-Rom? Is this problem with my computer a common one? What could have caused this?



    One day the computer was working great, the next day it does this.



    thanks for any help

Try to go into safe mode and run a system restore on it to the last known date that you know the system was working properly.

If benwabnick's solution does not work:

This is not uncommon, a faulty registry hive (usually caused by improper shutdown, but can have many causes)

1. Boot from Windows Cd and go to recovery console, typ CHKDSK /R and let that run (could take 2 hours so be patient)
2. try the advanced methods outlined at http://www.capitaltechmd.com/index.php?option=com_agora&task=viewtopic&id=50

Hi what keys do i press to format a dell inspiron 1150 laptop


If you mean wiping the hard drive & starting fresh I would do a low level format. This will make the hard drive as if it was new from the store, but you will have to reload Windows & other software. You should have a good knowledge of computers before doing this or ask a friend who knows computers to help.
