Having had my damn Dell Computer Scammed a few weeks ago I now have hundreds of virus's on my windows XP System. I realise it is out of date and I took the chance of changing our broadband connection so as...


Depending on the desktop you could add a new hard drive and make it the OS/Boot drive with Win 7. Your old drive with the pictures on it will become a data drive. If you don't know how to make the new drive the boot drive or the desktop does not have room for a 2nd drive it might be a lot easier to take the old drive and put it in a USB external enclosure.

Malwarebytes is good cleanup utility.

Do not use IE, to many vulnerabilities, Chrome of Firefox is better..

Not sure the connection between changing broadband providers and passwords.....

Do not have password too get in windows xp pro


Do you have another valid administrator account which can normally log on? If so, you can log on as the administrator to change the account you forgotten.
Or,you can think about the Windows Password Reset , it is very usefull and convenient.

At last,I suggeset you to create a reset disk after reset windows password so you will not afriad forgot windows password any more.

I recievced a dell pc desktop dont know what model it is but its set up for a corp network. cant get pass password would like to wipe drive and install xp have disks. how do i go about this. i think its...


The model name, and model number is usually on the back of the computer tower, next to the Windows Product key, or up on the side of the computer tower case.

Sometimes you have to open a door on the Front Panel, and it is located inside. (Not on the door. On the computer. The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer)

You have XP Installation disk/s?
You are aware that Microsoft's User's License states,
"Only one genuine copy of Windows per one computer"

(Microsoft makes a Master disk of an Operating System. The copies made from it are bought by the consumer. These are GENUINE copies)

If the Windows XP installation disk you have is a fresh disk, I suggest you go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot option to CDROM.

Windows doesn't 'like' having the same operating system installed over it.

Making sure that your optical drive, (CD or DVD. Player or burner, doesn't matter), is the first boot device, will override the above.

How to get into BIOS Setup for a Dell? (It's actually BIOS Setup utility)

Dell uses different keys on the keyboard for their different models.

A) The Dimension models usually use either the DELete key, or the F2 key.

B) The Inspiron models use the F2 key

C) The Latitude models (Desktop computer) use the F2 key

D) The Optiplex models may use either the F2 key, or the DELete key.

E) The Precision models use the F2 key.

Computer off, right after you press the Power On button, start tapping, (In 2 second intervals), on the appropriate key for your Dell model.

Note that I stated two different keys for some of the above models.

The procedure to find out which is the correct one, is to simply try one that is listed, and if it doesn't work, try the other one.

HOWEVER, you try using the first key.
Doesn't work?
Then you need to start all over.
You need to reboot the computer. (Restart)

Press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME.
This will restart, (Reboot), the computer, where you can try the other key.

Once you are in the BIOS Setup utility, you need to look for Boot Options.
There are many types of BIOS setup utilities, and Dell didn't/doesn't use just one.

You may see Boot Options in the top header of the BIOS Setup utility.
You may not.
If it isn't listed at the top, scroll down to the listing similar to,
Advanced BIOS Options, and open it.

[In the BIOS Setup utility you can no longer use your mouse.
You will use the Up/Down Arrow keys to highlight the area you wish to open, and then press the Enter key]

Hi i forgot my users password an i cant reestart the laptop its a dell laptop windows7 home premium can u help me restart the computer


There are 3 options for your problem:
1. You can boot to WinRE(Windows Recovery Console), run the command prompt. Go to the WINDOWS directory. Rename magnify.exe to magnify.old. Rename cmd.exe to magnify.exe. Restart your computer and boot normally. On the log in screen, click on Ease of Access. Select the option for magnifier. It will open command prompt instead of magnifier. Type the command: control userpasswords2. It will give you the option to reset the password.

2. Run in safe mode. Log in using the profile Administrator. Go to control panel then user accounts. You can change the password of your profile.

3. Dell systems have the built-in factory image restore. It can be found in the WinRE. To go to WinRE, turn system off, power on computer, after pressing the power button, tap on F8 till it gives you a screen that says Advanced Boot Options. Select Repair your Computer. Click on a few things for the language. Then you will have a window that says Windows Recovery Console. Click on Dell Factory Image Restore. Then there you go! it will restore the system back to its factory settings.

Hope this helps!

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

How do i format my hard drive on my old compaq 686 465mhz machine running xp sp2.Cant seem to get it to recognize f11, or other keys to get it to system prompt outside of windows.


This link will take you to Dell there you can make a boot disk you might have to change boot order to floppy drive first. This disk will give you the option to format fat32 or NTSF. Run fdisk to check the how your disk is partitioned.

You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows

Dell Dimension 5150 probably software conflict


you will need to get hold of a full copy of XP off of a friend, as the copy that prob came with your pc will judt format your pc and start again. Dont worry about codes as your should find one at the side of your pc. you just need to make sure you get the right copy i.e. xp home or Pro.

When you have the disk put it into the pc then reboot, your PC should be set up to boot from CD if it is you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, if not then let me know. you will now get a nice blue install screen up and a few options just carry on (dont select the console recovery as you theres an easyer way). now your PC will start looking for copys of XP installed on your pc, this is where your want to select restore XP (r button).

this will now copy over your old copy of XP but this will mean that you will not loss any programs or files.

Please be careful if your get up the options to format your PC then you will loss every thing. just reboot and do it all again. :)
Hope this helps. If you get stuck let me know,

you will now need to do a full
