I got an error 2000-0142 on my dell studio 1737. I ordered a new SATA 500gb hard drive and I need instructions on how to install it. I was running windows vista so do I need a new OS or can I reinstall it...


Hi Sarah Johnson,

You may first use the below link for manual of Studio 1737 and install a hard drive to the computer:
http://dell.to/15ZAQp1
You may then use the below link to find instructions on installing operating system using disc:
http://dell.to/GZv2m6
Then you may use the Dell OEM disc that was shipped along with the computer to install the operating system.

Dell inspiron 6000 XP has been infected by a virus.How do I erase the virus from my laptop without having to resort to buying the required software from an online software company thats probably cause


Well,if you don't want to buy a software to erase it,then you should have to reinstall your operating system,delete all partition,and INSTALL AN ANTIVIRUS
try AVG antivirus,it's FREE and easy to update,don't want to buy something don't you?
P.S it's hard to restore a computer which is already infected without reinstalling the operating system

Can I format the harddrive on my dell inspiron 1464 and reinstallation win 7 with the DVD... If Yes how can format the harddrive from at the command prompt. please help thanks.


Hi
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and the drivers.
You will need your NEW Operating System disc or you will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
If you do not have those CDs/DVDs then go the website of the computer manufacturer and search the website for "Recovery Discs", if they are not available
there you might locate them on Ebay.
1.Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new.
So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
Install the first disc and start the program.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

2005 Dell Inspiron 6000, I need to reload the operating software, my hard drive crashed and I have a new hard drive I am going to install. How do I go about loading in the software??


If you have your windows disc, go into your bios. Make sure your disc drive is the FIRST BOOT DEVICE. Then restart your pc and it should load from the cd.

I have two identical Dell Inspiron 6000 that have had hard disc failure... each after the warranty expired.. is it worth replaceing hard drive, or should spend the money and time on new machine?


Hard drives are worth replacing. Its cheaper compaired to buying a new notebook. You can even choose a larger hdd according to your preference. I suggest you buy a seagate because it has a better quality and has 2 yrs. of warranty

Want to wipe hard drive on dell dimension 8250


You don't need a recovery cd (or any other cd) to wipe the hard drive. Boot to a command prompt and type "format c:"

Reinstalling your operating system is the only time you need a recovery cd. If you have no way to reinstall your operating system, don't wipe the hard drive.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.

TAKING TOO MUCH TIME TO OPEN. THE HARD DRIVE LAMP RUNNING CONTINUOUSLY


Hi!

Have you ever tried reinstalling windows xp before? if not then revert back to me. I'll teach you how to check if the system still has PC restore. If you ever have tried reinstalling windows or your hdd has been replaced, then you may need to reinstall windows manually by using the discs.

Hope this helps.
