Re: Blank screen

As soon as you start the computer, keep pressing the DEL key, or the indicated key on the first screen it will say somewhere (at the top or bottom usually) 'Press ... to enter setup/bios' press that.

go through the menus and find something simular to 'boot sequance' and change the 1st to your HDD and 2nd to the DVD drive. save and exit (F10 key)

this should now boot using the HDD, if you have any other drives connected like a MP3 player, flash drive, phone or something that has storage space disconnect it.


if you get the windows load screen and then the flashing cursor, keep pressing the F8 key on startup, from the list select 'last known configuration that worked' and it should start up.

Sideway screen INSPIRON mini how do I fix it

Changing the screen orientation of your Windows display can make your screen rotate at a 90-degree, 180-degree and 270-degree angle. By default, Windows operating systems do not come with a built-in mechanism to change the screen's orientation. Certain graphics boards, such as Intel, utilize hot keys to change the screen orientation. If the hot keys do not work on your computer, a program can be installed to create shortcuts that change the screen's orientation. One such program that is Windows compatible is called "iRotate," which is available to download for free.

Turn your computer on and wait for it to load. Once your computer finishes loading, make sure any open programs are minimized or closed. Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on your keyboard. Press the corresponding arrow key on your keyboard for the direction to which you want to orient your screen. Press and hold the "Ctrl," "Alt" and up directional arrow key to return the screen to its regular orientation. iRotate Application Open the iRotate download site (see Bottom of page.) in your web browser. Click on the blue download link on the left-hand side of the page. The download link contains the text "iRotate" and has an icon of a floppy disc. Save the file to your computer. Open the iRotate file and follow the on-screen prompts to install the program to your computer. You can choose whether or not to put a shortcut on your desktop, place a folder for the program in your "Start" menu or automatically run the program after it finishes installing itself. Right-click on the iRotate icon in your taskbar. The iRotate icon is a blue rectangle that will display information about your graphic properties when you hover your mouse over the icon. Select a screen orientation from the drop-down menu. You can choose a 90-degree, 180-degree or 270-degree rotation. The "Normal Landscape" option returns your screen to its default orientation. iRotate

How to reset lost password?

What OS are you having?
On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset

Hope you can reset windows password soon.

Look for the Volume Mixer icon on the bottom right of your screen in the toolbar near the time. It may be hidden so click the "
If the Volume Mixer icon is not there, go to the Start Menu then click the icon for Control Panel. In the Control Panel window, select Sounds and Audio devices. Once in the settings for Sounds and Audio devices, there should be a checkbox for the option to "Place Volume Icon in the Taskbar." If no checkmark is there, click the box and then click on "OK". Now the Volume Mixer icon should appear in the taskbar.
Proceed by clicking this icon to launch the control panel for Volume Mixer. From here, you can change the volume settings for your computer and specific programs. Be sure to adjust the Master Volume setting.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't connet wireless network after reinstall

check DEVICE MANAGER if the wireless card have the right driver installed. if you found that the wireless card have yellow exclamation point on the right it means, you installed a wrong driver.

check also in BIOS if the wireless card is enable and the switch is turn on.

press Fn+F2 to enable wireless radio/anthena (funtion key with wireless icon in blue color)

some dell laptop have hard switch located right side check this and turn the switch on.

if you want to see the icon n task bar, go to control connection...right click on wireless properties...check Show on taskbar
