Question about Dell Vostro 1700 Notebook
Hiya I have a dell vostro 1700
windows fails to load because a required file iseither missing or corrupt.
My quesion is what can I do to fix this?
Am unable to get on the internet because of this, my reboot cd's are not loading either so am beat with this.
Your help would be very greatful
This is probably a problem with either the media (bad disk, or picky optical drive) or with some hardware. In the first case, I would try to reinstall first, and if that fails consider using a different drive or disk (if possible). As it points to the Netio.sys file, in the second scenario it may be related to a network device (i.e., ethernet). My suggestion in that case would be to remove all devices possible from the computer, and to disable on-board LAN/audio in BIOS to see if that helps.

Try starting the computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 at the first Windows screen and selecting Safe Mode from the menu. It should bypass attempting to load this file since the file appears to be network related (hence no internet access). Click on Start, then right-click on Computer (Vista) or My Computer (XP) and select Manage from the context menu. Under Vista you may get a UAC prompt so enter the administrator password or click Continue. In the left-hand pane, select Device Manager. In the right-hand pane, expand the Network Adapters section. Right-click on the first network adapter listed and select Uninstall from the context menu. Repeat this for all other listed network adapters. Exit the Management Console and reboot you computer. Since there are no network adapters installed any more the computer should boot up without attempting to load the offending driver. When it reboots, it should automatically redetect the network adapters and do a fresh install of the proper drivers and replacing or reinstalling the netio.sys file with all of the other networking components. Once it completes this process and you can connect to the internet again, you should run Windows Update (Vista) or visit www.windowsupdate.com (XP) to ensure that you have the latest patches for the components that were replaced.
