Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
My XPS 200 began going thru unwanted auto shutdowns. Thinking a reboot would help, upon restarting a blue screen popped up with a CHKDSK function operating to resolve a 'dirty volume' issue...at the end of stage 3 of 3 of the CHKDSK, the screen locks up and nothing happens...I waited 30 minutes, nothing changed so I turned the PC off.
I have walked thru a safe mode reboot with Dell Tech support...and it didn't work. We next tried a CD-ROM boot-up using 'Windows Restore Re-install' ...and that didn't work.
I am told that I have no other choice but to lose all existing hard drive data and do a complete re-install of Windows.
Are there any other alternatives?
you have two solution available first option is installing windows xp by xp cd put the cd in cd drive and boot from it and choose to install windows on the c drive the same drive that has your old widows but you have to choose not to format the partition which will ask you to delet the windows folder and reinstall it BUT !!!!!!!!!! you have to be carfule with this option dont choose to format the partion you have to choose keep the partion otherwise you will loose the data
