Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
My computer loads fine all the way up to the log in screen once i press enter to bypass it...it freezes at my background..i have tried loading it in safe mode and safe mode with networking all to no avail can does anyone have any answers or knows someone who does?
Try Safe Mode then Last Known Configuration, but, that's just a shot in the dark because after you reboot then the last boot is your Last Known Configuration..the next step is to try Revovery Console. You put your Windows CD in and let it run for a few minutes. Eventually you will come to a screen that ask to setup or repair. Press R for recovery console. This will bring you to a DOS command prompt. At the command prompt type fixboot or fixmbr if fixboot does not work the first time. What has happened is your Master Boot Record which loads Windows is corrupt so the fixboot/fixmbr fixes the Master Boot Record. If that does not work then you'll have to reload the operating system. Have you made a backup of your docs, favorites, email lately? as a install will wipe it out...however if it gets to that point then let me know and maybe we can at least save some of the data.
Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.
