My preferred solution is GParted. You can download this LiveCD and boot from it. The interface is fairly simple to understand. NOTE: It is important that after you resize a Windows partition you boot it up right away and allow it to scan the disk.

Install the latest touchpad driver from support.dell.com

There is a setting in the touchpad tab of the mouse driver. Either Enable PalmCheck or Disable touchpad when typing (Depends on Synaptics or Alps drive I believe)

With palmcheck enabled, the touchpad is disabled when typing

I am trying to install windows service pack 1. I keep getting an error code: 0x00F0826. Can you tell me what this means and how to fix it? I am running windows vista basic. 32-bit. Thanks.


if there error appeared while windows copying files then disc OS or the DVD ROM might be faulty. Try to test first the ODD if it is faulty. Use the drivers and utilities cd from dell to test the DVD ROM. If DVD ROM reads fine the drivers disc then try the OS disc to a different computer if it can load vista files. if not the OS disc has the problem. If no issues with OS disc and DVD Rom then it might be the HDD.

How to make new partition for fresh install


Hi,

You need to access the disk management console by right clicking the My Computer icon and go to manage. Then find Disk Management tab.

What you want to do is delete the drive completely make sure the drive letter is gone then right click on the empty space you want to partition and tell it to partition it, then format it. If you need to make it dynamic you can do that next too.

Thanks,
Armymason
