SOURCE: BOOTMGR is compressed

You are best off checking to see if you can get to the system restore point from the main menu of XP, assuming you can get that far. If XP starts then you can Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe, and then click OK and follow the numbered procedure below.

If not then You should also have a system restore disk suopplied witht he laptop so run this to restore your system back to original setup. If not then use the XP boot disk and trhen let it start and when prompted choose the restore option (usually R) when prompetd on the first screen. Then select the default Windows XP install (usually option 1 and press return when prompted. If you have a system admin password enter this when promted or just press {Return}. This will take to to a black and white text based screen and you sold see a C:\ prompt. Type the following:

cd C:\windows\system32\restore then hit {Enter} or {Return}

then type the following

dir rest*.* then hit {Enter} or {Return}

you should see a list of files including one called [rstrui.exe]

If you see this then you can tyope the following

rstrui then hit {Enter} or {Return}

this will then allow you to choose a date and time to restore the system to. Follw the procedure below.

  1. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next .
  2. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the system checkpoint.

SOURCE: Dell vostro 1400 laptop won't start b/c BOOTMGR is compressed....

okok, bootmgr is what, as you may be able to guess controls the booting of your computer. the solution is simple. Get out the vista installation cd that came from dell (It DOES come with your computer) and put it in. Next, boot your computer nd you see the familiar DELL screen with a bar that loads, in the upper right, there is a thing that says F12: Boot Menu. Press F12 on your keyboard, the top should now say Loading Boot Menu or something like that. After it loads, you will see a simple list. Navigate to CD/DVD or whatever it calls the disc. You computer will now read the disc and load. Wait for it to finish. It will take you to a screen where you enter some settings. Look for the link that says "repair my pc" (you may have to enter some settings and click next first). Click the link. It will ask you to automatically fix error. Click yes and let it do its thing. If this does not work, repeat the process above, except instead of letting it automatially fix error, CLICK NO! Then it should load a option saying windows vista bla bla bla. Click that and let it repair. Now the problem should be fixed

SOURCE: What about this Dell Vostro 1000 battery

the seller looks ok ...the things to look for is first to be new..no refurbished ,,second try to buy it not formated and do it yourself by charging it for about 12 hours ..and completely empty it for a few times...than see that for the same model of laptop can be more than one model of battery ..different on tha size and so with charge life time bigger or smaller....I will go for a midle size if available ...and use two of them ...to increse independence from the sourse..a much to big one might be inconvenient ...and of course one original is to be prefered on a copy or one that just fits...
the UK site is an excelent choice ...stay away from chinese stuff and cheap deals..

SOURCE: My dell vostro 1000 laptop's display ain

if i read this right, when you power up the laptop you get fan spin but no display ?, if you just get fan spin and the green power light and nothing else the you have a motherboard failure, if you get LED activity and it seems to be working but you only have no display the its more likely LCD failure, if you DO get activity try this : power off the system, press power button while holding down the D key, this will run the LCD BIST SELF TEST which will run through full colour screens if fails this test you will et a beep code, please bear in mind you will only be able to run that test if you get LED activity, if you dont have activity then the motherboard needs replacing

Bootmgr missing


You need to have a operating system's disc because you would need to load the bootmgr from it. Insert the disc and start your computer. Your computer will ask you to boot to the cd. Hit enter and run a start up repair so that the missing system file will be added.

I hope this helps!

We are looking for a solution to solve a problem of boot manager missing for Dell Vostro 1015


Hi,

To repair a bootmgr missing error you need to get a retail operating system disc. As you have a Dell PC your PC will have an OEM version of operating system. You can run a reinstall of the operating system from the Dell PC Restore disc.

As we dont know the operating system in your PC, it would be hard to guide you to restore it with a retail operating system dic if you have one. But, if you have the disc you can click here to resolve the issue in widows 7 operating system.

Bootmgr is compressed


I know of three solutions, none of them will work without recovery or OS discs, and I can only guarantee one of them--the one that whipes your system. Try these in this order (assuming you have system discs);

#1 Boot from the system disc and choose the "repair" option. This is the quickest fix, and you lose anything.

#2 Boot from the system disc, and in your Start menu search type "Command Prompt". Open Command Prompt and type (hit enter after each line);
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

#3 Run a full system recovery from your system discs.

Now, if you don't have your system discs, and you're running Windows Vista, there is another possible option. If your computer is fairly new then you probably have a WinRE partition for recovery, (a "factory image" drive)? I won't go into this now, if you have your discs option 1 or 2 should work for you.
