In the add or remove programs, click on the change button next to dell media experience. In the second step of the window there is an option to repair and it worked for me.

2 things you can try, On the bottom of the laptop there is a bar code type sticker the will say service tag, go to the dell web site scroll down to drivers and downloads when you click on that link it will give you the options to search by model or service tag. Put in the service tag number of your laptop, next screen should ask for your operating system make sure you have your current one in the box. The drivers and software that where commonly shipped with your model should show up.
Good luck

My stupid dell is really annoying when ever I try to click or select repair your computer is didn't show up at all I tried it more than 12 times and I love my dell so much I'm not giving up!

Do you have the original repair disk and program disk if you do just pop the disk in the cd drive and reboot the computer and it should pick up the cd and start it for you. If you don't have the original system disk that came with the computer big problems.

Invalid boot file ini fix dell opti plex 270


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have a Windows Disk to run a Repair Install from the disk. If running a repair install does not resolve the boot.ini error you will need to format and reinstall Windows.
To get a Windows disk you can search the internet for a disk. If you are in the US you can try getting a disk from the link below.

I can use my Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop says that windows could not start because drive 1 not found: serial ATA, SATA-2 and drive 3 not found: Parallel ATA, PATA1?

Use your system restore disks to repair your computer since the OS is FUBAR
Without those disks you are SOL. And if you never made them or lost them, now you have learned first hand why it is so important to have them.
Go to the dell site and see if they have your original OS in an iso file for installation. If so that will save your sorry b---.

Blue Screen doesn't load Operating System. I beleive there is a software conflict when my daughter downloaded an application she needed for university

If you are getting 'Uncorrectable data Error or Media' for your internal hard drive then it is likely that you have a disk problem rather than a software conflict caused by anything your daughter downloaded.
If the Dell diagnostics provide no solution, then you would need to use a specialist boot CD to try to repair the disk errors. One such disk is Hiren's Boot CD which can be downloaded as a CD image file (.ISO) from then would need to be burnt on to a blank CD then the laptop booted from this CD.
On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select DOS programs, then select Disk tools before selecting HDAT2 to perform the disk repair actions.
HDAT2 can take some time to complete depending on the size of your internal disk drive and the number of bad sectors or other errors encountered - the tool will attempt to repair bad sectors by reading, verifying, writing and re-reading / verifying the data.
If the disk can be recovered, then you may be lucky and the system will be able to boot but otherwise, you may still need to do some further recovery work for the operating system, in which case you may need your Windows install or recovery CD media.

You should be able to go to the Dell website
and register your laptop, even though you are not the original owner. From there the site will guide you through the scanning and repair process. You may have to wipe the hard drive and start with a clean setup, so backup any of your data on another form of media.
I had to do this on a dinosaur of a laptop when I had to replace my daughter's backup system. It is not fun, however, a better choice than using it for target practice.

I hope this helps, good luck!
