Why won't my sylvania netbook which runs WINDOWS CE..but it NEVER gets to the desktop page...what wrong?

I'm not familiar with Windows CE, but I have had similar problems with Windows 7 on laptops.

Try keeping the F8 key depressed when starting it up. The F8 key should allow you to start in 'safe mode'. I would imagine that the F8 'safe mode' is also to be found in Windows CE.

Keep pressing that F8 key as it powers up and hopefully it will present you with a screen that gives you a choice of 'safe mode' or network prompt. Choose 'safe mode'.

If your computer then starts in safe mode (it's just a minimum amount of drivers loaded to start the operating system) .. restart it again and see if it starts normally. You may have to 'play' and keep restarting it and pressing F8 ..

You can also change the boot up sequence as the computer starts. This is usually done by pressing the 'delete' key -or escape or f12 key (it varies from computer to computer)..

.. to take you to the bios settings. Change the boot order..if the dvd drive/usb is the first boot up device change it to hard drive as the first boot up device .. and see what happens.

It's almost as if the computer gets stuck in an endless cycle of 'trying to boot up' which is probably due to software conflict, for whatever reason.. some driver may not be loading to allow it to boot up correctly.

Someone changed my pass word to my dell vostro and my back up flash drive broken

You need to get the password!

Get them to unlock / give you the password. This can be more serious than expected.

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like

I have installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit in my dell vostro 1015 ,now i want to change my windows so is it possible that i install windows xp in my dell vostro 1015

Yes it is! You're going to need a Windows XP install CD and a serial key. Once you have those, we can start. Put the Windows XP Install CD in your computer, and reboot. Press F8 when the computer comes up to get into the boot menu. If F8 doesn't work, try F2, ESC and Enter. Select the CD/DVD drive from the list, and when you see the prompt to push any key, push any key. The files will load, then you'll see a Welcome to Windows screen - press enter. The next screen will show your hard drive. You're going to have to format it here, so you will lose all your files. Backup any files you need before you do this. Highlight the biggest sized partition, and press D, then follow the prompts. Now press C over the unallocated space, and choose quick format. Then press enter. Agree to the EULA by pressing F8 Windows will now begin installing. Follow the onscreen instructions and you'll be just fine. Alex

You should be able to go into safe mode by holding down F8 on startup. Then once into your computer you should be able to change the password.

I have a vostro 1500 and it will not load up. When I power it off and try to restart it it freezes in the start up screen that says resuming windows... What can I do to resolve this?

when it is starting up press F8 key continuously (keep on hitting it). You will then see a menu. navigate to "Start windows in safe mode" and start. Then run a virus scan or just undo the recent changes you did to your system.
