I tried to use the ctrl f11 to reformat my drive and it does not work


Ctrl + F11 works with DELL desktop/laptops with XP operating system to restore computer to factory settings, that too if your recovery partition is intact. So, If you have the same configuration and you are pressing "ctrl + f11" correctly on the dell logo when it comes in the begening, It should work.

If its not then your recovery partition might be damaged and you need a windows disk to repair/reinstall windows.

Otherwise, if you are using any other operating system like "windows vista" or "7", follow the below process.

Power off the laptop. Remove any peripheral devices such as speakers, printers or flash drives that are not necessary to this operation. Connect your laptop to power/adapter.

Very Important: Please make sure you have backed up all important data because restoring your device to factory settings will result in loss of all data and software, Though all software that came preinstalled with the computer will come back.

1. Backup your important data in external hard-drive or flash drive.
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 keyboard & language options and click OK
6. On the "System Recovery Options Screen" click "Complete PC restore" which is probably the second last option.
7. Follow the on-screen instructions
8. When prompted, click on "Full Factory Recovery"
9. Click "Next"
10. Click "Yes"
11. You may 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".

13. Computer will restart and it will boot to desktop just fine. It might ask you to configure some settings as this is equivalent to starting a new computer.

Computer wont start


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB.

If same problem persist, boot from safe mode. Here's how;
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would
If same problem persist, try reloading the Vista again.

Hope this works.

Comment by scadasw (see profile) - August 30, 2005

Yahoo! Messenger with voice (7,0,0,426) was compiled with an older version of MAPI32.DLL library. If you use MAPI32.DLL ver. 1.0.2536.0 (very recent: 1999!) it works."""

Above was quoted from a website. Um, is that same version you have now?

This might also help, but first, make note of exactly where your good, working mapi32.dll file is located, and make a copy of it to have for a quick case fixmapi.exe puts a not-compatible version back but I dont think it should....

run this file located in c:\windows\system32\fixmapi.exe

You do want to sign out of and be sure ypager is not running before trying fixmapi.

Here is the Microsoft info on what fixmapi.exe does:

Note what it says about if you are using Microsoft Outlook (not same as Outlook Express)

How to re-boot computer orsystem or laptop

Since you didn't mention the Operating System, I am unable to give you the specific solution. Actually we can restart/reboot a computer by pressing the "Reset" button. But if you would like to do it from the desktop screen, close all the programs and Press "Alt+F4" simultaneously on the keyboard, now select "Restart" from the menu that pops up. Or in general you have to click "Start" then "Turn Off" and then "Restart".

Windows xp "Turn Off"


Windows Vista and Windows 7, Turn Off and Restart button and menu




I hope this helps, if you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello, the whole screen froze up. the cursor wont move. it cant be powered off either. i badly need help. please....

Hello my friend, you are experiencing a system hang up. In order to restart your system you'll have to long press the power button on your computer or laptop then do not release it until the computer/laptop will not turn off. If the computer/laptop will turn off check first the system unit tighten the connectors and then restart your computer again. If it won't work then remove the power cable connected on your computer system unit to your avr or Automatic Voltage Regulator.
