Inspiron 1501 will boot normally, but hangs on Welcome without going to the home screen.


Boot from the OS CD and choose "repair previous installation". All files should remain untouched.

Whe I turn the computer on i cant get to windows


The problem could be a number of things. First try and remove your memory stick one at a time and see if it boots up with out the blue screen. If not try using a windows disc and boot from cd you may have to change your bios settings to boot from cd first. You use the F2 key when you power up to enter the bios.

If you are using the cd select command promt and run chkdsk command to check if your hard drive has any errors. Also run a fixmbr and a fixboot they should replace the boot file.

If that dosnt work you might have to re-install windows.

Hope this helps. :)

Blue screen of death


Hi there
"Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system.
If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD.
This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS.
Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.

Good luck

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff
